The Modern Heirloom - Heirloom Bindery 2017


Another new year is upon us, and with that, we are proud to unveil some exciting new products and updates here at Heirloom Bindery. We value your art, your aesthetics and your support for our fine art bindery. We wouldn't be here without you, and for that we are ever grateful!

New Fabrics & Sizes

We've selected our favorite 8 German and Italian bookcloths to fill our curated cover material options. Older fabrics will be phased out by the end of 2017. If you need a new swatch box, you can get those here (20% off until January!).

Price Changes

Any price changes on our albums and box collections will take effect on February 1, 2017. We try to keep any increases below 5% year-over-year. If you have already sold (or plan to sell) any album packages to clients before then and are concerned about 'locking in' your pricing, please respond to this email so we can take care of that!

The New Perfect Album

We're re-launching our Perfect Album as a 100% alpha-cellulose wood-pulp paper option for clients who want to continue designing two-page spreads without needing protective vellum interleaving. These albums are also more price-friendly for parent-album and multiple-book packages! Prices start at $675. A description of our album offerings and their differences can be found on our blog here. Cotton rag Perfect Albums  continue to be sold as a binding option under our Heirloom Album product line.

2017 Transparent Pricing

We pride ourselves on offering the most beautiful products available to some of the most highly regarded photographers in the world. To do this, we pay a premium for materials and pay all of our employees a fair wage and full health benefits. In an effort to provide total transparency to our clients, we have created a cost breakdown here so you can how your purchases are supporting our book artists and how many elements come together to build a fine art album.

Styling Board Sets

We've loved seeing our original Styling Boards become an integral part of the fine art photographer's toolbox. We've updated our board offerings to provide two 6-color sets at a discount to ordering boards individually. The Wedding Set has the perfect pastel and feminine tones for bridal work, and the Natural Set features six tones perfect for styling details and other editorial work.

Free Shipping

We are thrilled to offer Free Domestic Shipping on all orders over $100. One more thing you don't have to worry about!

Happy Holidays!
