When I started doing wedding photography back in 2016, I faced the lack of fine art printing companies in the US market that would focus on high-quality, handcrafted wedding albums. Since then, I've been constantly looking for an option that would give my couples and me the best result. My goal was to find a company that cares about what they do as much as I care about my couples and my work. A company that makes no compromises on quality and that is as eco-friendly as possible. The last thing I'd want to see is a beautiful album wrapped in non-recyclable plastic.
In 2017, I found Artifact Uprising www.artifactuprising.com, which is a great printing company for everyday prints and budget-friendly lay-flat albums. I have my own albums and prints at home printed by Uprising, and I love their products! But in November 2018 I attended a meetup in NYC hosted by a newer to the American market company - QtAlbums - www.qtalbums.com and met the creators, the inspirers, the artisans of QtAlbums, and let me tell you this, I fell in love with their handcrafted products, their heirloom albums, and their vision on the industry.
Professional grade materials with print permanence rated at 80+ years are the guarantee that your album will look as beautiful as it looks today when you show it your grandkids.
Ask yourself what would be more exciting, more meaningful to show your kids and grandkids - an outdated flash drive with hundreds of photos from your wedding, or your family's heirloom - a fine art album with the most important photographs printed on a beautifully textured paper?
THE ANSWER IS OBVIOUS
