Custom Guest Book Considerations?

Posted by Steve powell on Fri, Nov 6, 2009
Custom Guest Book There are a few things to consider when you're ordering a custom guest book. First consider your budget. A lot of people like to go all of the way, and personalize their covers with art, names, or logos. This can make for a truly spectacular guest book, but it can also get expensive. The thing about a guest book is that in many cases they spend most of their time open.... no one will ever see the cover. There's nothing wrong with a simple classic cover, as a matter of fact it has a certain elegance. If you're going to create custom guest book pages you can put all of the art that you want there. We charge a flat fee for page art anyway. It's definitely the most economical, and often the most tasteful, way to go in your design. Second, think about what the purpose of your book will be. If you just want to collect certain information for business purposes, it's fine to just create short fields for your customers to record their information. If you're designing a page for your cabin, ranch, beach house, or ski cabin, it's usually a good idea to use full complete lines with column headers like name, date, remarks, or memories. In these circumstances it's often nice to allow your guests as much space as possible to record their good experiences had at your place. After all, what's the book for anyway? Art, logos, images, or whatever you like may be watermarked behind the lines of your pages. Third, you may want to consider adding photo pages to your guest book. Powell Leather photo pages are easily mounted among your guest pages, and this can be a really fun way to add faces to the names on the pages. Your portfolio can also be a custom photo guest book. We'd be happy to discuss your purpose, ideas, and offer guidance in choosing the design that will be most appropriate for your personalized leather guest book.

Choosing the right photo album or portfolio

Posted by Steve powell on Tue, Oct 6, 2009
leather photo albumsSometimes it's difficult to decide what leather photo album is the right choice for you. First it's important to consider what its purpose will be. Will you be using it as a family keepsake for all sizes of photos, or will it be professional accessory used to demonstrate your products and services. Will it be personalized? These are important questions to consider when you're making a decision. You will need to ask yourself what size images the photo album or portfolio will need to accommodate. The 8.5 x 11 leather photo albums are great for digital images and documents, they will slide right in with minimal mounting effort. Any 8 X 10 images will fit nicely in these albums as well. This album is also more portable. If you plan on taking it on sales calls it is a much more convenient portfolio for that application. The 12 x 12 photo album is also a great choice. It gives you the freedom to mount whatever you like upon its top loading pages, and it has a much more dominating presence. The 4 X 6 leather photo albums are great for the simple convenience that they offer. You just slip in your 4 x 6 photos and you're ready to go. The second question that you need to consider is what type of abuse is this album going to be exposed to? Glazed calf is very shiny and smooth. It makes a great choice for a coffee table album, but it's really not something that you want to be carrying around with you every day. It will scratch much more easily than other leathers that are available. For working albums the best choice by far are the shrunken shoulder leather photo albums. This material is absolutely beautiful, and full of character. It is almost impossible to damage the finish. This material is recommended for presentation portfoliosmodeling portfoliossales portfolios, and albums that will be vulnerable to wear and abuse. It's also a safe bet for the coffee table too, it's absolutely gorgeous. The next consideration will be whether or not you'd like to personalize the album. We will be happy to help you decide. If you have any questions concerning what might be best for you please feel free to call us here at Powell Leather, and we'll be glad to help you in any way that we are able.

We’d like to introduce the newest member of the Powell Leather product family, the Professional Presentation Portfolio. Many people have chosen Powell Leather photo albums to showcase their products and services because of the general durability and resistance to wear that they offer, and now we’ve taken it a step further. We now offer a leather portfolio which accommodates 8.5 x 11 page sleeves that includes a document flap with business card pockets. Images of products or services may be displayed elegantly in the page sleeves, which easily accommodate anything less than 8.5 x 11 in dimension. Contracts, sales material, and business cards are easily stowed in the document flap. Our portfolios have been very well recieved by several service companies, professional photographers, and salesmen as a useful sales tool to showcase their goods and services. Please feel free to inquire as to how we might adapt one for your purpose, or offer some suggestions concerning how the product might be improved. Custom made photo albums are our specialty.
