Emotional Storytelling by Twyla Jones

“Creating photographs that do more than serve as proof you existed - they show that you lived passionately and loved madly” is a quote by amazing photographer and our friend, Twyla Jones. I love this quote, as it represents our values too. In QtAlbums, we believe that photography is an art, and art should be displayed properly. We are so privileged, that Twyla is letting us print her amazing work, and we’re happy she loves what we do.

I absolutely love it, all the content is so inspiring, full of passion for photography and it’s more than just pictures. It’s stories told thru pictures.

Emma & James love their QT Album

This week we would love to share a blog post by Hannah Hall, one of the photographers who attended Snap Festival. She loved our albums so much that she decided to switch her old supplier to QtAlbums. We couldn’t be more happy and grateful for choosing us! We are even more delighted to hear that Emma & James, who were Hannah’s clients, loved their album too!

I loved their finish, the attention to detail and access to round the clock support and advice which I hadn’t had with my previous company. Also, being half Polish, I absolutely loved supporting a business based in Poland
— Hannah Hall

Hannah also shared what Emma & James, her wedding couple, thought about their album. This lovely comment puts a smile on our faces, but the final product is a combination of great photos, the right design, and a quality lab. That’s why we love to work with professionals like Hannah. This is what Emma and James said about their album.

The album has been beautifully designed and shows the timeline of our day, all the happy, funny, exciting, beautiful moments we had with friends and family! The detail you can see in the photos is superb and we keep on spotting new little bits in each picture that really brings back the memories of the day!
— Emma & James

Thank you so much Hannah, Emma and James!

The NEW BloomBook

WIN FREE BLOOM BOOK!

DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE!

May is the month when everything is blooming and coming to life. Our idea of an zero-waste & pocket-friendly album with a presentation box was growing for the last few months.

We have planted this vision in our heads a little while ago when we introduced biodegradable air-cushions. We wanted to create a product that would use some recycled materials and bits & pieces that would otherwise go to waste.

This idea is now in full bloom! And it’s called a BloomBook! How original…! 😉

So let me give you some details about the BloomBook. We bulk buy the material – the raw linen. That saves us money by reducing transportation costs, and generally, we can negotiate a better price.

As we offer just one size (20x20cm) we can have the material cut by a machine, which leaves very little material wasted. The Bloom Book comes in a presentation box, which is included in the price. The outer box is made of 3 mm cardboard from recycling, not actual wood.

The wooden frame inside the box is made of wood chips of an alder tree and it’s attached to the box with screws, so very little glue is needed – which means fewer chemicals.

As the money doesn’t grow on trees, we can now offer a product that is of very high quality yet super affordable. From only 65$ you can have the album and the presentation box! It’s a great entry level album for anybody who is starting to offer albums.
