We've got products that allow you to easily print your own archival folios, lovely presentation box packs and paper perfect for producing custom bound books.
These folios are a simple way to create a professional looking folio that will last for years to come. They come as two parts allowing you to customise your folio to suit - a black leather cover with Chicago screws to hold album together, and packs of 20 fine art pre-scored pages.
You have the option of three different Hahnemühle FineArt archival papers to choose from and three different album sizes as well. The Hahnemühle Digital Albums are perfect if you want to add more pages or refresh your folio at a later date, by simply purchasing additional paper packs.
N.B. Remember you need to order both covers and matching paper to make a complete album.
Gorgeous Archival Boxes With Fine Art Paper
The Hahnemühle Premium Edition Pro Packs are great value and come a complete package.
Each of these A3+ sized packs includes 50 sheets of your chosen fine art paper from the 2 choices available (classic Photo Rag 308 or FineArt Baryta), cotton gloves, 5 authenticity certificates, and a custom made archival box made by archival legends Prat, Paris.
The paper in these packs is actually cheaper than buying the paper normally and the bonus items are worth over $200. We think they're perfect for project work - a lovely way to present a series of images on a particular topic, or a perfect adjunct to a classic album with a bunch of larger prints your clients can, for example, rotate in a matching frame over the years in their home.
Standalone Fine Art Boxes
The other option is a stand alone Archival Storage Box from Canson Infinity and comes with 25 protective gassline sheets and a neutral ribbon to help with the removal of prints and photographs. It comes in both A4 and A3+ sizes.
These storage boxes are made from archival quality board in pH neutral conditions to ensure the greatest integrity over time and are covered in a beautiful black Wibalin Buckram paper that gives it a professional finish as well as offering a high water resistance and light fastness!
Both these products make perfect gifts for your hard-to-buy photographer friends!
Another great option worth considering is creating your own album using paper specially made for custom bounding and having it bound together by a book binding company. A number of our customers have used this approach to make some very beautiful photo books - we've seen covers ranging from classic embossed leather through to super modern white perspex with chunky industrial aluminium bindings holding it together.
The only limit is your imagination really! Once you've printed out your masterpieces, just contact a book binder and they can bind them up in a variety of ways. Even better, call them before you print just in case they have any special requirements and to discuss your options. There are plenty of book binders in Australia, here in Melbourne a popular choice is Irwin and McLaren.
To get a really nice book that sits properly when open it, you need paper with a guaranteed grain direction. Lucky for you, we have just the thing!
For many years we have sold lovely inkjet printable cards made from Museo fine art paper. Unfortunately the local distributor is no longer importing them. We will update this section when we find a worthy replacement to the Museo Artists Cards.

I just wanted to let you know I have my new monitor and computer hooked up and calibrated. I am very happy with my purchase. Once again I wanted so say I really appreciated the time and advice you gave me. You have a great website with so many interesting articles to read. Certainly lots to learn from them...My only regret is that I didn't find Image Science sooner. As I am sure I mentioned I have spoken to numerous people (mainly in department stores) in the last 10 months about monitors and the information they gave was so varied and a lot just 'didn't add up'!. I realise I am a novice with lots to learn, but feel the confident the advice you gave was very trustworthy and knowledgeable.
