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.
Another big trend is scrapbooking, which allows individuals to make their own albums in a way that suits their style and their needs. It is also a popular hobby, allows for more personalized albums, and encourages people to mingle other types of keepsakes with their photographs. These albums can be very affordable, because people can take their own pictures and print them at self-help kiosks or at home. Craft and office supply stores sell the other tools that are necessary for building a scrapbook photo album.
