Can I have single page, or right start page in the front and/or back?
Yes, this is standard in our photo artbook. A black page is included in the front and back of our artbook, and an additional translucent fly page already included in the front free of charge.
What type of paper thickness options are there?
Amber is using a high quality fine art paper that is waterproof and scratch proof. Currently, we have only 1 type of thickness for both artbooks and albums.
What are your paper choices?
For our photo albums and artbook, we offer fine art paper only. For gallery canvases, we print on acrylic, metal plate, wood, PU leather, and more. Watch for website updates to see our latest additions.
What is unique about the type of paper Amber uses?
Our fine art paper is waterproof and scratch proof that will last for a lifetime. Our printing is resistant to “lightfastness,” a term describing how paper fades and color changes when exposed to light, natural or artificial. When tested by Wilhelm Imaging Research (WIR) for both color fading and changing, our prints performed better than other printing technologies.
That said, you should still always keep your albums in a safe place.
Is the paper recyclable?
Yes! We strive to keep our footprint as green as possible. Our ink complies with the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act 21 U.S. C 201 (FFDCA). It doesn’t contain lead, cadmium, mercury or hexavalent chromium, or any substance listed under both US federal list of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) and California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.
I would love to learn more about the printing process. Can you tell me more?
Our photos are printed by advanced digital presses. This process has been tested by independent print permanence institute, Wilhelm Imaging Research (WIR). Results from this test have shown that albums can be stored for more than 200 years, and prints can be on display for up to 54 years before any noticeable signs of fading or changes in color.
Is your printing Eco-friendly?
Yes! Our ink complies with the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act 21 U.S. C 201 (FFDCA). It doesn’t contain lead, cadmium, mercury or hexavalent chromium, or any substance listed under both US federal list of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) and California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.
Does Amber offer parent albums?
We prefer to produce unique album for you rather than a series of album.
Can I foil stamp my album?
Yes! Send over your logo (we prefer Adobe Illustrator), and we will stamp it onto your album.
What are the minimum and maximum number of pages for our albums and artbook?
For our albums, there is a minimum of 10 spreads (20 pages) and a maximum 40 spreads (80 pages). However, for 23 spreads or more, we use a slightly thinner substrate between the spreads by without compromising the quality of the album.
For our artbook, there is a minimum of 15 spreads (30 pages) and 45 spreads (90 pages).
