Culture, style, elegance and awesomeness. Meet Alistair and Jasmine.
I own nearly 1000 CDs. These have been lovingly collected over the last 15 years and they are one of my most prized possessions. And I still buy CDs. “Why?” you might ask. “Digital downloads are the future.” I guess I have to respectfully disagree. There’s nothing like holding a CD, reading the liner notes, looking at the artwork. It’s something that has everlasting value. And sure it’s archaic technology but the physical product is so much nicer than an invisible set of 1s and 0s somewhere on my harddrive isn’t it?
I feel the same way about photos. They’re great to look at on a screen but at the end of the day, there’s absolutely nothing like a beautiful bespoke album printed on wonderful high quality paper. And now, I can finally provide that. My previous albums were beautiful too, but I started to get annoyed with the gutter in the middle, so much space would go missing. But these new albums are another story altogether. 310 gsm archival quality gallery cotton art paper, wonderful high quality printing and beautiful artisanal flushmount construction. And the best part, it’s made with minimal environmental impact using paper from sustainable sources, low energy printing processes and even carbon neutral shipping. This is something close to my heart and I’m happy.
And you know what the best thing is? I’m going to be offering these albums at near cost price. I already get paid quite fairly for the job that I do so I don’t feel like I need to make money from something that takes me no extra work. A 10×10 inch 25 spread album will sit in somewhere near the $1000 mark (contact me for full pricing). There’s also 6×6 duplicates for parents/grandparents/anyone else who wants one. And for storage of your main album, there’s the absolute 100% piece-of-art bamboo box (at extra cost). Awesomely constructed and oh so beautiful. The default option for storage is a sturdy cardboard box and soft cotton bag which is also shown.
Another thing Kristen and I believe strongly in is allowing people to create change for themselves to make the world a better place. As such, we’re going to add an optional $50 donation option when you buy an album and these funds will be taken from the amount you have paid and donated in your name to a selected list of charity/non-government/aid organisations. This list will contain organisations which Kristen and I are confident use their funds appropriately and effectively.
Anyway, enough talk, these are the beautiful end product of my labours that you can hopefully hold in your hands one day.
