velvet

"Velvet, if you please..."

There is something quite magical about this fabric. Your eyes will admire it, but the true love will come with the touch. Don’t we all love the soft, delicate, smooth and fluffy feeling? Yeah, we do – it’s the velvet.

“Black velvet, if you please…”

I love what Ula Koska did with the black velvet fabric. So here is the recipe – you take a boudoir session, mix it with a good bit of talent, put it in the Heirloom, cover in black velvet and place into QtAlbums oven for a while. You get this magical album.

 

“She wore blue velvet, bluer than velvet was the night, softer than satin was the light…”

The great thing about the velvet is that when using the right colour, you can match it with the design you have in the album. And like the black and cranberry are ideal for the boudoir sessions, the petal and blue are just perfect for new-born photography.

 

“You keep your heart in a velvet box, in a room within a house without a door..”

We love the velvet covers, but I might risk saying that we love the velvet even more on the clamshell presentation boxes. Still can’t decide which is my favourite colour, do you have one yourself?

 

Watch a beautiful cranberry cameo velvet album on a video. Thank you, Lauren, for sharing your work!

NEW PRODUCTS & COVERS!

Qtalbums is bringing you more quality products! FOLIO & VELVET COVERS


This year has been very productive so far. We have travelled the world to meet you in Atlanta, Texas, Las Vegas, Birmingham and Cannes. Everywhere we went people LOVED our products. In Atlanta, we have shown FOLIO for the very first time. It made a huge impression on the audience so we had no choice but to start making it! It’s an excellent way to present pictures.

Folio comes in two sizes: 4x6”and 6x6”. You can pick a duo or a trio version and choose one of our beautiful linens or silks as a cover. Printed on Fuji Lustre or Matte Cotton Rag paper. The prints are permanently mounted to a beautifully textured mat board. There is a discrete magnet which helps with keeping the folio closed.

Cover personalizations are also possible - so say no more - they are perfect. Besides that, they can be stood on end for presentation, so it’s an ideal gift! Folio is available to purchase in the new storefront. Take a look at the stunning pictures of the Folio in the gallery above.

As our travels continued, we wanted to show you more options for albums covers (like if there weren’t enough) so we’ve picked VELVET. And again - it has proved to be a big hit at The Photography Show in Birmingham last March. Velvet is a distinctive soft feel fabric with a short dense piled surface.

We offer it in ten noble colours to emphasize the luxury of this material. Fantastic textile for album covers as well as clamshell or lid boxes. Due to the type of fabric, personalisations are limited at present. But wait till our new UV machine arrives and you won’t have to worry about limitations anymore.

We have recently added this fabric to our shop, so now you can immerse yourself in endless options!
