Sierra Album Overview
The Sierra Album epitomizes modern luxury with its 13x9.5" size, rounded spine in supple black leather and show-stopping metal cover. We flush-mount photographic prints to the edge of thick, no-warp pages. Clients can see and feel the difference instantly. Sierra is packaged in our Standard Album Box.
Check our current turnaround times especially during holidays and promotions. Normal estimated turnaround is 4-5 business days.
Sierra Album Options
Choose from 5 Metal Print Surfaces for your Sierra Album Cover. Your image is printed on 0.045" thick Chromalux Metal for a superior, long-lasting cover. A modern curved spine wrapped in supple black leather finishes the couture look.
Choose from professional photographic papers: Luster or Deep Matte. For more information, see our Paper Types page.
Choose either a Micro Gutter or Seamless Creased album page. The 2mm Micro Gutter is a traditional favorite and recommended for display albums which will get heavy use. The new Seamless album page is made with a tight center crease for unbroken panoramic images. No additional charge.
We flush-mount photographic prints on plastic inserts--not paperboard-- for thick, no-warp pages. Choose Black or White Page Inserts.
Sierra Albums feature 1/8" Rounded Page Corners only.
Cascade, our free ordering software, makes album design easier with built-in templates. Use the templates as-is or modify them by moving, resizing or adding new image nodes and text. Save your templates for future use.
Start and end your album with our traditional Black End Sheets (shown, top) for a dramatic effect or White End Sheets (bottom) for a lighter look that so many high-key photographers love.
Back Leaf Imprinting
Add your studio name or a special message on the inside back cover of any album. Limit 1 line of text with 29 characters maximum. Black, Gold, Silver or Rose Gold Foil in Times Italic or Amazone Script font (see samples). $6.
Add optional Gilding to your album pages for a touch of luxury. Gilding is a decorative process in which a coat of color is applied to the edge of each album page. Shown, top to bottom: Silver, Black and Gold. $26 per album.
