Everything About Albums
~ Signature Albums ~
are custom designed and built to last for generations (at Millers Professional Imaging). Here are some of our past Signature albums:
^ Kjell chose to have his cover image printed on "Brushed Metal".
^ Alaina chose a blue Velvet with a cover image on "Vivid Metal" which has a white base printed on the metal so her whites shone bright white without the cool vibe industrial metallic undertones that you can detect in Kjell's cover. Signature Album pages are thick (center image).
When your Album is opened, the first 2 pages are usually a spread with text as a title, in a font that goes well with your images, here Alaina chose "Skyline High School Class of 2022" with her name "Alaina".
^ Zach chose a black and white image on a "Brushed Metal" cover with a distressed leather called "Timber".
Grace selected another distressed leather "Onyx" and a glossy Acrylic cover. She liked a full length photo on her cover.
Signature Album pages are square 10"x10". A single photograph on one page is larger than an 8x10" print. A single photograph that covers 2 pages would be 20" wide by 10" tall. One of Grace's pages shown here holds four 4" square photos.
^ Justin chose "Walnut" leather because it matches his family's living room sofa, where his album is displayed on the coffee table. He has a black and white image on "Brushed Metal" for his cover - anything that was white in the image will show silver on the metal. The cover material wraps around the back of your Signature Album. Joy (right) chose "Sahara" distressed leather because it looked so beautiful with her cover portrait, which is on "Vivid Metal" with a white base so all her whites are bright white.
^ Signature Albums have panorama style pages with only a crease between pages, so our portraits are not limited by 10" page width and images may cross the center of the album with only the slightest interruption.
^ Personalized fonts are not limited to blank spaces in your album, thoughts can overlap images anywhere - for Alaina we made a curving script-like font that fits nicely over one of her images (far left) and the words she chose quote a lyric from the musical "Hamilton". Zach (middle) preferred a text that was a bit more blunt for this spread ;) - he used this spread as his LAST 2 pages of his album. Joy (far right) used a collage of 3 photos for the first spread when she opens her Album, with her first, middle & last name and her high school and graduation year.
To design your Signature Album, we use the portraits that you have purchased in a Portrait Package. I design a first draft using the portraits you have indicated as your favorites :) Then with your feedback, we design a 2nd and a 3rd draft before placing your order.

~ Studio Albums ~
I keep a stock of these albums on-hand in sizes 7x10, 5x7, and 4x6 - so our turnaround is quick! Here are examples of past Studio Albums:
^ Currently I have 7x10 Studio Albums in this gorgeous distressed leather "Chalkboard" ~ it has a cameo spot for a photograph on the front!
I print your photographs with my uber-awesome professional giclée printer in my home ~ the color and luminosity gradations are beautiful and your photographs will not even start to fade until beyond our lifetimes :)
7x10 albums can be oriented vertically (portrait style) or horizontally (landscape style). If positioned vertically, portrait style photographs. When it comes to landscape oriented photographs, we can turn them to fit (above right) or spread them across two pages:
There is a seam between pages but we can work around it to still achieve a nice spread ~ a 7x10 inches gives a 14" x 10" spread when using both pages :)
Although I keep one color for each size of my Studio Albums in stock (in studio), we can customize for you at a small extra cost ($95-ish) which would include a custom cover material &/or ribbon closure &/or imprinting on your cover like Hannah's name at top left. Hannah's 7x10" album is customized with the leather "Dulce de Leche" and Jillian's 7x10" album in front of Hannah's is in the leather "Bomber Jacket" with a black ribbon closure. They are shown with a USB which comes with Portrait Packages.
This little gem (below) is a 4x6" Studio Album in a linen fabric called "Denim", which I have in stock at this time. This one is Jonny's :)
^ The 4x6" was just the size Jon's family wanted :)
