About Our Albums
All our albums are come in a flushmount style. A flushmount album is designed to open so that it is completely flat from edge to edge without any bulging or blemishes. This style of album is considered to be the gold standard when it comes to displaying your images within a beautifully bound book. At Lonely Hunter we offer two sizes 10 x 10" and 12 x 12". Both sizes come complete with 25 spreads (50 pages) which can be ordered in either fine art, traditional photographic, matte or satin papers. We like to give our clients as many options as possible when it comes to designing their album so that each album is unique while reflecting the personality and character of each person. To help with this, each album can be designed with a wide selection of cover materials and colours to choose from, custom cover designs and varying page thicknesses. All albums come wrapped in a beautiful swede pouch which is then carefully placed in a bespoke box. All of these features are bundled into one set price for your album. However if you would like to add more spreads, upgrade the presentation box or purchase additional copy/parent albums, this can all be done as well.
Creating Your Album
Images for your album can be personally selected by you through your online gallery. This can either be done before you complete your order below or after. When selecting images, simply select the heart icon on each image that you would included in your album. Please try to keep selections to roughly 4-5 images per spread. This means an album with 25 spreads, would include approx 100-125 images. Once you have made your selections, you can let Lonely Hunter know via email. You don't need to email your selected images to us as we will be able to view these on our back-end.
When it comes to ordering and designing your album, Lonely Hunter has created the step by step guide seen below so as to make the design process as smooth and easy as possible. Below, you will find the complete range of design options that are available to you when designing the album. Please take note of the different options that appeal to you as you make your way down the page. Once you reach the bottom there will be a form where you can enter all the necessary details. Once we have received the completed form on our end, we will be in touch to organise payment. Please Note: All payments will need to be received before the album can be put into production.
Select Your Preferred Paper
At Lonely Hunter, printing with inkjet printers onto fine art paper is our favourite and preferred way to show off your images in all their glory. We believe this is the highest achievable standard and sets the benchmark when it comes to quality prints. But this it not about us, it's about you. Which is why at Lonely Hunter I feel it's important to still give you all the options when it comes to selecting the materials for your album. This way you can get exactly what you are after. Below you will find four different papers with three different printing options to choose from:
Lustre: Premier lustre paper produces accurate skin tones, with a neutral tone scale from highlights to shadows. Lustre offers bold rich blacks, clean whites and an increased colour gamut for stronger, brighter, more vibrant colours.
Album Page Thicknesses
Step 3 (Optional Extra)
Translucent Title Pages can add another dimension of artisanship to your album. These aren't necessarily for everyone but they are included in the album cost so the option is yours to add one if you wish. The semi translucent page will sit on the right hand side of the first spread allowing you to partially see through to the image printed behind. The translucent page can contain your names, the date of your wedding and who the photography was by.
Select Your Album Cover Material & Colour
Please note: The swatches below will be labeled as to whether they can be blind embossed or foil embossed. With multiple material/foil combinations, for technical reasons some combinations may not work in practice. I will advise if your selection proves unsuitable.
Earthy leathers that evoke distant, rugged landscapes. Inviting textures that will respond to your touch. Please note, natural growth and range markings are a feature of the Vintage Leathers and make every book, box and album unique. Please choose from the Classic and Contemporary ranges if you require a "grain corrected" finish. All vintage leather swatches shown below are available for blind embossing & foil embossing.
Contemporary Genuine Leathers

Select Your Cover Design
You can add a personal touch to your albums with front cover embossing. There are five standard embossing options to choose from which are shown below. If you would like to use a completely different font or design, this will need to be supplied when filling out the order form at the bottom of this page. Custom designs which exceed 70x37mm, 100x25mm or 147x15mm will cost extra. Please double-check names and dates are correct, Lonely Hunter cannot be held responsible for errors in the artwork you supply.
The first two standard options (1 & 2) shown below are 'blind' embossings (pressed into the cover without foil). The remaining three (3,4 & 5) offer the choice of blind embossing or foiled.
Position: Embossings are normally placed in the center of the cover, but within limits you can request a different position (bottom right, spine etc). If you'd like a proof of the size and position, just add a special note in the form at the bottom of the page.
