Types of Leather.Leather is the hide of an animal that has been dried, tanned, processed and dyed. There are numerous types of leather used for making photo albums. The finest leather is full-grain. It is usually tanned and left in a more natural state than other types of leather. Top-grain, or split-grain, has an artificial grain pressed into one side. The other side is fuzzy. Suede comes from the inside piece of split-grain and is fuzzy on both sides. Shiny patent leather is coated with plastic. Napa leather is extremely soft. Naturally, the softest, most supple leathers cost more.
Department stores still sell the bulky photo albums of old, but other forms of albums have become increasingly popular over time. Many albums are now inexpensive, soft-cover books into which people can easily slip their digital prints. Digital photo books are also very popular among professionals, because they allow the photography studio to arrange entire pages before printing, rather than editing the photos and then arranging them on to a physical page. These albums look similar to school yearbooks.
Step 2: Establish Gift Recipient Profile.If you are designing this photo album for yourself, you can skip this step. This step is very important if you are designing custom made photo album as a gift. One of the major problems when designing a photo album gift is that people forget that they are designing it for someone else.This is just a precaution to ensure that your photo album design reflects the sense of style of the gift recipient, making the photo album gift unique to hisher personality. Profile information could be as simple as their age, favorite color, or style.
Next item on the list should be a pen or two. Some would use permanent markers, so it's your choice. A black pen will be great, but you should also buy a white pen if you can. This way, you will have at least two choices when it's time to do some journaling later on. A white pen looks stunning on darker backgrounds, and much easier to read. You can also use these pens to write down any information on the photos and even on the page itself. Of course, the pens should use permanent ink, be acid-free, and waterproof.
