What are styling boards for and how do I use them? Our styling boards are flat, backdrop boards for flat lay and photographing still life details at weddings and editorial shoots. They are sized perfectly for 4.5x6 or 4x6 camera formats. They even look great on the iPhone! We find that photographers like to place their boards on the ground and lean over them to frame their shot. You can use a tripod for added stability. Boards have also been used vertically or flat on a tabletop.
Are styling boards for film shooters or digital shooters? Styling boards are suitable for both digital and film shooters and work with various camera formats.
Can I purchase just one out of the three boards or mix and match colors? Each styling set is prepared with a certain aesthetic in mind and works as a collection together and fabrics cannot be altered. However, If you are interested in a single board with two custom colors, or several boards with custom colors, we offer a 2-sided styling board in our styling shop.
What if I stain or damage on of my boards? If you should damage one of your boards beyond use, you can purchase an individual board as a replacement.
What if my boards arrive stained or damaged? All of our styling sets are built with heavy, fine art materials and inspected very closely for any stains or blemishes. We also ship our boards in a fashion that keeps them flat and limits damage through shipping. It is very rare that we would ever ship out a product from our studio with any aesthetic issues. However, if you should find any problems with your styling boards, e-mail us immediately with photos of the boards as well as the condition of the packaging and we will be happy to ship you a replacement.
What's the difference between the wedding styling set and the natural styling set? Both styling sets offer different styles of fabrics and colors, but are made the same way with the same quality materials. The natural set features linen fabrics with natural weaves and textures and the wedding set is comprised of more feminine, pastel colors in a smooth cotton.
When will I receive my boards? Boards are hand made in our studio. Please allow 2 weeks for our binding process. Your boards will then ship from our studio via the shipping method you selected.
What are your styling boards made of? Our styling boards are made of all fine-art archival materials. We use the same linens and book binding cloths offered with our albums. Fabrics are then applied permanently to book board and adhered together.
How long will my boards last? Your boards should last forever as long as you are careful when using it in a work environment. Keep your styling boards away from liquids and stains. Treat them as you would a fine art book as they are made from the same materials. The lifespan of your styling board is limited only by how you use it - be extremely careful when photographing bouquets and foliage as moisture and pollen from plants can create permanent marks. Make sure objects are dry and clean before placing them and keep your boards protected in their canvas travel bag when not in use. Additional canvas bags can be ordered in our styling section.
Can I clean my styling boards? You cannot use any liquid cleaners on your styling boards, but you may apply a protective spray. Dust and dirt can be brushed off. For some stains, you may use a natural, clean, rubber eraser to gently remove dirt. We use and recommend this rubber pick-up all the time.
What makes Heirloom styling boards different from those offered by other companies? We are proud that Heirloom Bindery created the original styling board, driven by the need for photographers to have a flat, iron-free backdrop made of classic and beautiful fabrics for clean and perfect detail shots. Due to its popularity, we have found that other album and presentation companies have started making their own copies. While we have not had experience with other versions, we firmly stand by our products. We are a company driven by innovation, integrity and originality, like our albums and accessories, we create new products when we find that there is a creative need for it. Thus, our styling boards are made with the user's best experience in mind - they're simple, seamless and portable, and fabrics and tones are chosen to compliment the most advanced editorial work. Our styling boards and used and chosen by top stylists and photographers in the fine art industry.
