Folio Collection Overview
Known as a "deconstructed photo album," the Folio Collection consists of prints inside a custom box. For prints, choose either press-printed Folio Prints or Photographic Prints. Folio Prints are extra-thick cardstock and can be stored as-is. Photographic Prints benefit from mats or mounting for a more polished look. Select premium Folio Box covers in fabric, vegan leather, sparkle or photo-wrap. Box and Prints sold separately. Sizes 5x7", 8x10" and 11x14".
Production in-lab turnaround time is 3-4 business days for Folio Prints, 4-5 business days for Folio Boxes.
What is the Folio Collection?
Folio Image Box
Fabric, Vegan Leather, Sparkle or Photo Cover
The Folio Image Box is a hand-crafted, clamshell box with a hidden, magnetic closure. The box stays shut even when upright. Choose premium covers like fabric, sparkle, vegan leather or photo-wrap (shown). Optional DVD tray or USB insert. Choose from 6 box depths in sizes 5x7", 8x10" and 11x14".
Folio Collection Options
Our Folio Prints are press-printed on 48 point extra-thick LOFT Paper that looks and feels luxurious. We use 6 color inks for a wide color range and smooth skin tones.
Our deepest Folio Box fits a maximum of 65 Folio Prints. To find out how many prints fit in our shallower boxes, see Box Inside Specs.
Double Sided Printing
Folio Prints can be printed on one or two sides. The second side is perfect for a back image, pattern or logo. Six color inks ensure crisper images and smoother skin tones.
Add an optional black or white border to your Folio Print. Borders create a smaller image opening for your print: 3.93x5.5" image opening on a 5x7" Folio Print, 5x7" image opening on an 8x10" Folio Print, and 7.06 x 10.13" image opening on an 11x14" Folio Print. Available in BRI ROES only.
Photographic Prints are developed on professional papers: Luster, Metallic or Deep Matte.
For a polished look, we recommend you mat or mount your prints before presenting them in a Folio Box.
DIY Photo Mats
DIY Photo Mats are self-assembled using your own adhesive. These buffered, acid-free mats are available in white only and sold in sets of 10. The 8x10" mat fits a 5x7" print. The 11x14" mat comes in 3 window openings: Small fits a 7x10" print, Medium fits an 8x10" print, and Large fits an 8x12" print.
Styrene Mounting is one of the best mounting options for 5x7" prints and larger. Styrene is a rigid plastic mounting board with a white surface. Adds 1-2 days to the turnaround time.
Folio Image Box
Our Folio Image Boxes are available in 3 sizes: 5x7", 8x10" and 11x14".
Choose from 6 box depths to fit more Folio Prints: 0.75" fits 10 prints, 1" fits 15 prints, 1.25" fits 20 prints, 1.5" fits 25 prints, 2.5" fits 45 prints and 3.5" fits 65 prints. See our Box Inside Specs for details.
Choose from 4 cover materials: Fabric, Vegan Leather, Sparkle or Photo. See Box Cover Materials for details.
Choose between White or Black Lining or match the cover material (Fabric & Vegan Leather only). Choose between a white or black pull ribbon that allows you to easily lift out your prints.
Select the optional Image Panel to mount an image to the inside of the box cover. Feature a special candid shot, pattern or logo here. Matte Finish only. For Image Panel dimensions, see Option Pricing. $10.
The optional USB Insert is cleverly hidden at the bottom of a Folio Box with prints stacked on top. A box with a USB Insert fits 10 fewer Folio Prints and 6 fewer DIY Photo Mats. The opening is 1-7/8 x 3-3/8" (thumbdrive sold separately). $17.
Add an optional CD/DVD Tray on the inside cover. $3.
Display your Folio Print with an optional Acrylic Easel. Made of clear, durable 1/8" thick acrylic with an easy slide-and-lock assembly, the easel packs flat for convenient storage. When assembled, dimensions are 5.5" high, 4.5" wide, 6" deep. $12.
