We sell black synthetic leather presentation cases in two sizes: 14x11 and 12x12. Smaller albums can be nested into the larger cases using a foam nest to hold the album.

Rather than traditional cut-through windows, we use a unique heat-set process to create our cover cameos. In this process, we take a laminated photographic print, bond it an aluminum plate and then use heat & pressure to create depression in the cover that the photo plate can be permanently glued into. The process is similar to de-bossing. The photo plate sits flush with the cover material and is free from catching.
The results speak for themselves: - corners that are clean & crisp (no messy fabric tears or soft looks - no cover bulges due to layering of materials - incredibly flexible placement that allows you to have a look & feel that's yours
How to Order: You choose this as an Designable Cover (in Design Your Own or Template Albums) when beginning your order in lifethreads:Creator.
To offer cover names & dates, we use a laser engraver rather than traditional stamping and de-bossing process. Yes, we blast your book with our laser! There are a few advantages to this: - more flexibility in fonts because we do not require metal dies to be made for each font/logo - cheaper because we do not have to pay for these dies - unique & different - flexible placement (just not spines) - available on all our full grains & synthetic leathers
How to Order: You choose this as an upgrade option in the Shopping Cart during your Creator order.
Our aluminum plaques are a classy alternative to the laser engraving process. Rather than engraving the cover material directly, we engrave an aluminum plaque and heat-set this into the cover in the same process as our cameos. The result is a more traditional and refined cover upgrade that allows personalization but is still very flexible in terms of plaque size & placement.
