The Journal Artbook

The Journal Artbook

We unveiled this new album earlier this week at Imaging USA and the reaction from photographers was overwhelming, to say the least. People spotted it from far away and came dashing towards it to scoop it up in their arms. When people caught sight of this album out of the corner of their eye, their heads snapped toward it and we heard every sort of "Oh my!" and "Where have you been all my life?!" We knew it was something special, but it's the greatest feeling in the world to see how many others agree.

The Journal ArtBook is defined by its soft, leather-wrap cover that envelops a book of hand-torn cotton rag pages. A rustic, leather strap closure winds around to finish the look. It’s a classic, antique-looking album reminiscent of yesteryear that, as you run your hands over the subtle texture of the fine art prints, invokes a wonderful sense of nostalgia.

The distinguished cover doesn’t stand alone from what’s inside: beautifully hand-torn pages made from museum quality cotton rag paper and printed with pigment-based inks. The fine, slightly textured surface of this archival fine art paper is ideal for printing both black & white and colour photographs, as well as art reproductions, with impressive pictoral depth. To make it even more luxurious, the front page is embossed in gold, illuminating your clients' names or your logo - a custom stamp allows you to create something truly personal.

The Journal's cover is not attached to the block of pages, and doesn't feature a hard spine, so we have also added the extra touch of a silk binding on the pages to add support and stability for longevity.

We invite you to create a studio sample of your own to share with clients and hopefully experience some of the same jaw-dropping reactions from them that we saw from photographers this week. Take 50% off the regular price by using the code below:

QTALBUMS is going green

We are proud to announce that QtAlbums is taking new steps to be more eco-friendly. Many of you have expressed the importance of reducing the amount of plastic used in our packaging. We wanted to fulfil that commitment without compromising on the safety of your albums during transportation, so we've purchased a special device allowing us to make our own biodegradable air cushions, rather than traditional plastic bubble-wrap.



is taking new steps to be more eco-friendly

The air cushions can be reused, recycled or composted. Made from HDPE type 2, they are non-toxic. A special additive causes the film to completely break down in 12 to 24 months when in the presence of moisture, micro-organisms and oxygen, leaving no toxic or heavy metal residues. Compare that with this fact: Since plastic was invented, everything that has ever been made from it still exists. It won't start breaking up for about 700 years, but that break-down isn't pretty. It will “photo-degrade” – which means it will turn into little toxic bits of itself. So 12 months or 700 years? There's only one choice, and we thank all of you who shared your thoughts so we could find new ways to meet your needs.

We are happy to be doing our part for the planet. And we're thrilled to be able to provide you with another little reason to feel good about choosing QtAlbums as a partner in your business.

We would like you to do your part for the environment so please remember to recycle the film correctly.

New York, New York !

New York City was always a dream for a lot of people, city that inspires millions, city where the dreams are made of, city that never sleeps, city of great art, great photography, New York City.

It always reminds me of one song - I think the only one song that I would listen and listen over and over again.

On that occasion we will be also hosting a small workshop / meeting with Twyla Jones, come and see us and meet with us. You can sign up here.

During our trip to USA we will be sponsor guests on Midwest Gathering in Detroit, which is the first this type of conference in this area. There are still available tickets!!!

Detroit is a place where things are made, a place where people have always come together to make something greater than themselves, piece by piece. The Midwest Gathering is carrying on that tradition.

Junebug publication & pizza

At QT HQ we are absolutely thrilled to share with you our recent feature in the internationally renowned wedding blog - Junebug! Regarded as a wedding fashion and style icon, Junebug showcases only the finest wedding products & services and we are super excited to see our beautiful QT fine art albums featured alongside such amazing talent.




In today’s culture of disposable media, now more than ever we appreciate the power of printed photographs in sharing experiences and connecting people. We think it’s a powerful message to spread and we are always looking for ways to help our photographers overcome the challenges of discussing print options so that they can enjoy helping their clients display their photographs for a lifetime.      




Junebug’s July 11th article “5 Reasons Why You Should Absolutely Print Your Wedding Photos”, is a fantastically compelling argument for the value of the printed photograph. Insightful reading accompanied with some beautiful photography by the amazingly talented Wyn Wiley makes this article the perfect tool to share with couples and begin the print conversation. 





Remember, showing printed photographs and discussing print options early into the client relationship encourages clients to bring their own photographs to life through albums and prints.

How do I select the images I want you to print if I am purchasing the print & USB option?

Please include 2 folders in your file. One folder should be marked “for USB” and the other should be marked “for print”. We will print the images in the “for print” file.

If you do not include a “for print” folder, please note that our staff will make a selection on your behalf of images which we feel are beautiful and representative of your style.
