Album for Family Portraits

Handmade Album for Professional Portrait Session

In celebration of her husband Bob's 70th birthday, Linda J. set up a portrait session for their family with Ann Arbor photographer John Shultz. After the session, she contacted us here at HSS to build albums to hold the family's favorite portraits from the sitting. She chose our trifold albums to hold the photos, and let each household choose the cloth and thread colors they liked best for their album. We then built the albums, mounted the photos, and shipped each album off to its respective new home. Have a look:

What a great way to preserve these wonderful pictures. Thank you for working with us, Linda!

Portfolio Cover Inset

Digitally Printed Insets on Custom Portfolios

When our clients want clean, professional personalization, we often create digitally printed inserts on portfolios and books. To do this, we carve out a section of the bookboard before we glue the cover cloth in place. Our clients can then print their logo or artwork onto cardstock, and we can secure it into place on the book's cover. The recessed area provides a frame for the printed card, but also added protection against fingerprints and repeated viewings.

50th Anniversary Album

Memorable 50th Anniversary Gift

Our friend Josh recently asked us to make a 50th wedding anniversary album for his parents. We then had the pleasure of meeting his folks when they visited our studio yesterday. They brought along their album, which had been filled with photos from their years together, including their recent family trip to Italy. We were thrilled to see an HSS album full of such wonderful memories. Thanks so much for visiting, Ed & Joni!

50th Anniversary Album

Photos were put into the album by a family member (who did a great job, we think.)

Ahh, notice how the album covers sit parallel when the book is full. We love full books!
