Hot new looks for Seldex Boxes

Portfolio Box, Portrait Envelope and USB Box coordinating grouping.

Seldex’s PORTFOLIO BOXES and PREVIEW BOXES are getting a new wardrobe!  Dress them up in hot new fabrics from Seldex’s Asahi, Bucram or Linen lines!  Gone are the days of just custom image covers, or the plain black box.  Color is here to stay!

Preveiw Boxes have also expanded to include options for Asahi, Buckram and Linen with your choice of a black or white base-box* and optional coordinating ribbon-tie closure.  The custom image cover is still available for individual order, or with the 5 per color minimum order on these beautiful new fabric options, you are also eligible for FREE studio embossing, so get your custom logo cast into a Seldex Studio Die if you haven’t already.

Hint: Since Seldex and Finao are on different continents, you’d need to set up a unique die order for each if you plan on using both Finao and Seldex products.  Both can be ordered on Finao’s website, or accessed through the link above.

Preview Box now available in fabric covers and the original custom image cover.

Go to the next level with nextONE

Finao reinvents the hybrid market with nextONE!

We’ve taken matted albums to the next level.  Flush and matted prints are combined in seamless, panoramic layouts, and with an easy-to-design philosophy that requires NO SPECIAL SOFTWARE, you will never have to fear
matted albums ever again!

The nextONE is available in all the same Finabulous cover options you know and love from previous ONE series albums, and it also features your choice of photographic luster prints like the original ONE, or giclée prints like the artONE.

Gorgeous conservation-quality mats are finished with an embossed accent around openings and sit nearly level with non-matted, “flush mount” areas.  Both mats and prints can cross the center crease, freeing you up for fresh new design ideas.

Luster print “flush mount” area sits level next to matted area where mat is on top of inset prints. One simple design makes this magic happen. Emboss detail surrounds mat openings. Photo credit: Danny Weiss

Design in any software that is capable of exporting a jpeg.  With the addition of a few simple rules, you can design virtually as you would for any other flush mount album, and BE FREE FROM TEMPLATES!! Simply use magenta (R=255 G=0 B=255) to indicate matted areas and we’ll craft each page according to your custom layout.  More details on design DOs and DON’Ts are found here.

And if you thought it couldn’t get any better, wait until you go look at the price! (Must be logged-in to view pricing as the privacy of our customers is highest priority) Base price includes 10 leaves/20 page-sides of printing, mats and full assembly, also your choice of nearly 150 cover materials including leathers, silks, linens and vegan options.  Additional spreads are available up to 32 leaves/64 page-sides and many cover upgrade opportunities exist as well.
