Beautiful photography, beautifully presented — that's what you and your clients deserve. If you're into portrait, boudoir or pet photography our Studio Boxes are a must.
About Studio Boxes
Compared with our Premium Boxes (previously "Q-Boxes"), Studio Boxes are more affordable, of a simpler construction, with a one-piece lid and wider insert ribbon. They're available in two sizes (10x8 and 14x11). As with Premium Boxes, Studio Boxes take up to 25 mats, or 20 with the optional USB flash drive insert (flash drive not included). Choose either Tintoretto (offset) or Silver Halide (photographic) printing.
Cover options: We offer Driftwood and Breeze Linen, and Pearl and Carbon (black) Buckram. All can be supplied with a bow closure and embossed with your clients' names, your studio logo, or both). Also available, customisable printed Canvas.
Studio logo only: Your logo will be displayed in the bottom right-hand corner.
Personalised embossing only: Horizontal and Vertical boxes will display text in the bottom right-hand corner. You can choose either Futura (names only) or Bank Gothic (names and date).
Studio logo and personal embossing together: The personal embossing will be in the centre of the box, the Studio Logo in the bottom right-hand corner.
If you prefer the printed canvas option you will need to upload the cover image, specify whether you want your studio logo to appear, choose one of our two fonts, and specify the cover/spine text if any.
We will send a design draft back for confirmation, including text placement and background colour choice (which we will eye-drop from the cover image). Read below for more information on picking your cover image.
Important information when picking your cover image:
Our designers will do their best to work with the image and text you provide, but here are some tips to ensure good results.
We generally recommend vertical boxes for portrait work (lid hinged on the left). Make sure the image does not have important subject matter close to the edge, where it can look awkward, as in the example below, or even disappear when the printed canvas is folded round the box lid in construction. If necessary you can clone areas of the image to extend the printed area, as in the example above.
Our designers may move text so it's not obscured by the image behind it. In the example below the text has been moved to the top right.
