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.
The size and album cover are also part of the customized process when creating a personal album of your own. There are tons of different covers to choose from including, fabric, leather, metal and more. Although all covers on albums are meant to protect the actual pictures, there are some that can be submersed under water and still come out fine. The same is true for extreme heat exposures.
