I believe pricing should be simple and straightforward, with no hidden or surprise charges.
is a function of how many images you choose, and is only paid once, no matter how many copies of an album you purchase. Full-size copies of the color-corrected/retouched individual images are included with this fee.
The design fee is the same whether you are purchasing an album from me, or just need a design that you will use at a consumer printer like Blurb (printed books), AdoramaPix (skinny basic-style flush books with photographic pages) or Picaboo (both kinds)
The same design can be used for any flush albums of the same shape, so a 12×8 deluxe flush album can be reused in a 9×6 skinny flush album; matted albums can also be translated directly to any size flush album of the same shape (usually square).
|# of images||12||18||24||36||48||60||72||84||100||120||156||192|
For “fine art” style design, where the image/page ratio is 1.5 or less, there is a 25% discount
Ranges from $50 for a 10 page, 5×5 coffee table book to $2800 for a large, tricked-out hybrid album. I strive to have many excellent options along the entire budget range. Each individual album page includes specific pricing for that album.
Shipping is not included, and is usually $30-$50 in the continental US depending on album size. (Delivery is free in King/Snohomish Counties.)
If you are using my design at a 3rd party printer like Blurb, there is no album charge.
You will not be invoiced for the album until you have approved your design. Payment plans are available.
Matted albums range from $525 (medium 20 side traditional) up to $3500 (60 side extra large hybrid matted-flush)
Flush albums range from $125 (20 side 5×5 skinny flush) to north of $2400 (60 side 14×14 deluxe flush)
