PERSONALISATION OF PHOTO ALBUMS
We are pleased to offer a comprehensive personalised photo album service to our customers. Many of our photo albums, books and some photo frames can be personalised with initials, names, dates, company logos and family or regimental crests. Personalisation is normally positioned (visual) central on the front cover of the photo albums. If you require a different position to what is offered, please state requirements in “ special requests” when ordering.
Where possible, you will be given the opportunity to choose the position and number of lines of text. Each line can have a maximum of 20 characters. If you find you have more characters to go on each line, please e-mail the office with the exact lettering you would like and we can advise accordingly. Options for each product are given on the ordering page.
N.B. All personalisation will be written as shown on the order. If you use Capitals, we will use capitals, if you use Upper and Lower case, we will use upper and lower case.
TYPES OF PERSONALISATION
Gold Embossing Silver Embossing
Letters / Figures are stamped onto the item using either Gold or Silver foil.
Please note that we are unable to emboss directly onto the album spines, instead this is done on a matching patch of leather, which is then carefully stuck in place.
A limited amount of lettering is possible on the spines of some of the photo albums and books. This option is included in the ordering section of the relevant books.
FAMILY CRESTS, LOGOS, & REGIMENTAL BADGES
Family crests, company logos, regimental badges & much more can all be embossed onto our books. If you have shelves of photo albums that need dating or numbering, please contact the office for more information.
To emboss a crest, cypher or picture onto leather, a specific metal blocking stamp / die is needed.
Please bear in mind the end product will be embossed in one colour (gold, silver or blind). Blind is just impressed into leather with no colour.
We can easily have die blocks made up, which is then your property for future projects. Please provide the artwork as below:
1. A high resolution image (approx.1mg), preferably a black / white line art drawing of the item you are after in jpg form. Vector file is the most suitable.
(Images from the internet are not normally satisfactory quality. It is essential that all lines have sharp clean edges)
2. We will then arrange for a quote before proceeding.
The style of font used is “Granby”, (as seen above). Unless otherwise requested we will use our discretion as to the exact position of the lettering. Any specific requirements should be discussed with the office before placing an order.
Some items are supplied to us with embossing already on the book. (Small Sporting Books and Leather Address Books). The font style used on these books do not match our personalised fonts, so please check before placing an order.
Please make sure you check all spelling, grammar and punctuation as we cannot accept returns of products that have been personalised.
Please allow 5 working days for a personalised item to be despatched. More often than not we can despatch orders sooner, however if you need an item for a specific date, please let us know and we will do all we can to help. At busy times of the year please allow between 7-10 working days for this service.
