My standard albums are provided by the award winning Loxley Colour based near Cumbernauld in Scotland. They provide a lovely balance between excellent quality and reasonable pricing. In my experience their customer service is excellent and turnaround times are probably the quickest in the industry. If you have met me for an in-person consultation then you will have seen a couple of example albums.
Below you will see the standard album options, but for clients looking for a really high-end product I can also offer premium Loxley albums and also the exquisite range of Queensberry albums. Enquire for more details.
I use SmartAlbums(TM) for the design process. This includes 'Cloud Proofing' which is insanely useful for reviewing album layouts and makes the design review process quick and easy, so you get your album in the quickest possible time.

What is UV Printing?
UV Printing is a printing method that uses a photomechanical drying process to adhere the inks to a surface. The UV ink used in the printing process is exposed to ultra violet light which transforms it from liquid to a solid, allowing the ease of application to a number of unusual surfaces and substrates. Because of this process and the lack of volatile organic compounds, which cause ‘bleed’ in conventional surface printing, UV printing allows for a more vibrant, detailed print finish and can be applied to an array of creative surfaces.
What designs can I use UV printing with?
Many options are available for UV printing including basic text (an option that many of my clients choose for a sleek look). Alternatively you may choose from the Standard UV Printing Designs below or even incorporate your own design/logos e.g. from your invitations etc.

Note that options 4, 5 and 6 below may be customised with your own text.
Laser etching can incorporate up to two lines of text on the front cover of your album by removing the top surface of the material so it is slightly 'engraved'. This results in an understated, sleek look. The text will be centred on the front cover of your album. Where two lines of text are specified the 2nd line will have a smaller, but matching font to the 1st line.
Note that laser etching is not available for Paisley and Shimmer material options.
The following fonts are available for laser etching:
