Ordering a Sample Album

Creating a sample for your studio is absolutely vital if you want to offer albums. Having a sample showcases your work while allowing your clients to see, touch, and feel the end product in person.  When showing a sample, more often than not, the album will sell itself – you just need to have one. Because these sample albums are made for display/marketing purposes, they are heavily discounted to make it that much easier for you to obtain.

TIP: ordering a Material Kit (cover swatches) for your studio is also highly recommended.

Album Design

Don’t know how to design albums?  No worries.  We offer design services to help you create beautiful layouts for you clients.  If you prefer to have more control, our partners at Fundy Designer and SmartAlbums make the album design process extremely easy for you.  These programs are used (and loved) by thousands of photographers worldwide.  Equipped with tons of album building tools and features, we highly recommend these programs when it comes to managing your workflow and album design.
