Pure Archival Materials.
The Society of American Archivists defines archival quality as being resistant to deterioration or loss of quality, allowing for a long life expectancy when kept in controlled conditions. Our albums are all of these things and more. Classic design, archival quality materials—PQ Albums are simply the quality standard.
Linen: An elegantly textured, natural woven fabric with a timeless appeal.
Buckram: An extremely durable cotton fabric, coated with a subtle sheen with a contemporary chic.
Leather: The traditionally premium way to wrap your special moments and beautiful memories.
Pure Quality Binding.
Hand-bound with the highest quality materials, beautifully constructed and designed to endure, we create our albums with a lay-flat binding technique and flush-mounted pages on board. These techniques have been passed on from generation to generation of bookmakers. Your images will spread elegantly across your coffee table, elevating your images in way that other binding techniques can’t.
Pure Quality Paper.
Our paper stocks are archival and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). In simple terms this means they are not only are they good for the planet, but they also won’t decompose or discolor with age.
We’re passionate about ensuring that the materials we use are made in way that doesn’t have negative impact on the planet around us. It makes us proud to say our paper stocks are 100% recyclable and sustainable for the environment we live in.

Felix Schoeller E-Photo Lustre has a semi-gloss luster finish and yields the high-quality look and feel of photo paper.
Felix Schoeller E-Photo Lustre – High Gloss our popular Lustre paper with a laminate applied for a glossy, vibrant finish.
Pure Quality Printing.
The industry standard is to print in four colors, but we go two steps further. Our book and albums feature six color printing to reach layers of sophistication others can’t. Photos come to life with CMYK + a lighter shade of cyan (LC) and a lighter shade of magenta (LM).
What’s more, the top-quality inks we use means your images won’t fade, staying warm and rich for your clients to enjoy deep into the future.
Pure Quality Presentation Boxes.
PQ Presentation Boxes are the perfect way to enhance and protect your clients' precious memories. They are hand made using our premium materials, bound in your choice of linen or buckram, and lined with Italian Fedrigoni Tintoretto art paper and a satin lift-out ribbon. Our boxes are the finishing touch that will significantly elevate the impression your clients have of the album you have created for them.
