Photobook Makeover

Photo book makeover from my first client of wedding books, Peter Tan's wedding samples in order to rejuvenate the physical design of his wedding book. The previous cover was using the coat paper, I replaced the old cover with new chipboard and use Nolita Kid Pu leather picked by him (after 1st red color was rejected due to some weird marks he doesnt like). The leather cover is also pressed with blind hot deboss stamping for his logo. He's got marvelous photos too.

Slipcase + Stick On Album Final Set

Album Makeover Set RM90 per unit (photographer's price for 3 units)

Original Album is provided by client.

This album is designed for Puan Aiza from Keramat who just started diving into wedding photography business which she wanted to have a premium album quality and yet she's offering this album with a very affordable price.

The best part is that you choose your leather types, we do the rest. Limited leather albums selection are not our preference which we are purposely to break the barrier to give freedom for customers. Long live customers!

Bone Folder?

The major identity for book maker or binder is the bone folder. Bone folder is a basic manual binding tool made from whale's bone with blunt edges, it is basically use to fold paper or wrapping material with ease on thick paper surface around the edges. There are quite few types of bone folder with general and specific purposes. It is purposely to avoid smudges or wrinkles either from air bubbles or glue residue to emerge on smooth surface on the paper.

Some people who cant afford to buy it will use other household items or hardware items made from plastic for binding works. However, book maker is not symbolize by the special tools, it's in their heart and mind. Just sharing. Hope this info could give you guys a better knowledge in book making process.

Thesis binding, delivered yesterday , it's also business to us.

I did two copies for him which the premium one is printed with quality Art Paper and the normal copy with standard specs . Actually he missed the dateline for his thesis, but the appointed supervisor gave him another dateline due to out of stock chemical supplies from US. Unfortunately I didn't take the shots for premium copy and this photos are supplied by the owner to me thru email. Thanx for the help.
