Madera Books saves my life. Well, not exactly. For example, if I scraped my knee Madera would not be there to give me a bandaid, and if I was falling from the roof of a building, Cyndie, my Madera Rep, would probably not come swinging from a nearby tree and catch me as I fall. HOWEVER, if I were ever feeling down I know that if I picked up one of my Madera sample albums and flipped through the pages it would be sure to make my heart sing with pure bliss.

We all know photography does this. Photo’s can take you back to a time and a place that has so quickly passed us by. They can make us feel young, maybe they can even make us feel old. They can draw tears from eyes, laughter from our souls and they can even have the power to heal broken hearts. I know all this because I see it every day. I experience it. We all do.

So why do we let our photos sit on USB drives or worse yet, on social media or our computers which can at any moment be snatched from us. What if your computer crashes, or worse yet, what if those social media websites suddenly went blank? What would we do?! Lucky for you, I’ll be here with Madera to save your life. With tangible moments in custom layouts that tell the STORY of your day wrapped up in beautiful vegan and premium leathers that you handpicked. Doesn’t sound very heroic? You’ll thank me later ;)

 

Albums by Madera Books

8X8 Leather album

Cover on Maternity: Light Brown Faux Leather

Cover on Newborn: Gray Premium Leather

 

The verdict? My clients said that their albums were beautiful and absolutely loved how bright white the pages and image were. They also commented on how the crease in-between the pages was nearly invisible. Score! :)

PHOTOGRAPHY BY NADIA MARTINEZ

Today we have a post from PHOTOGRAPHY BY NADIA MARTINEZ.  Nadia is a Orange County photographer that specializes in senior portraits.  She is featuring an 8×8 book in premium black.  Enjoy!

From the day I started my business in 2012 I knew I wanted to provide only the best products for my clients. Today I continue to strive for quality that is not found in your high-volume senior photography studios. I am happy to introduce a new line of heirloom quality senior albums from Madera Books. The top-grain leather albums are hand made. Each album is custom designed  for you and your style. Each spread covers the entire width of the book and and speaks of ultimate luxury. The album is beautifully presented in a custom leather box. The quality & luxury speaks for itself and I know you all will love to have this in your home to share with friends and family forever.  Take a look at the attention to detail that goes into each and every album.

TIFFANY KELLEY PHOTOGRAPHY

This week we have a post by TIFFANY KELLEY PHOTOGRAPHY.  Tiffany is a photography located in Branson, MO and she loves peppermint mochas, flea markets and watercolor paintings among other things.  Her style is a blend of editorial photography and traditional portraiture.  Enjoy her post!

We recently delivered these absolutely gorgeous wedding albums to our clients. I’m head-over-heels in LOVE with how the books turned out and just had to share some photos! What you see below is one 12×12 album for the couple and two duplicate 8×8 parent albums. The covers are luxurious black premium leather with custom text imprinting on the front and spine. Plus, there’s the optional inset photo on the front. Inside are over 140 of the couple’s favorite photos laid out in clean, timeless page spread designs. The pages are super thick for quality and durability, and they lay flat for easy viewing. These stunning albums are sure to be family heirlooms to be enjoyed for generations.

2014 CHRISTMAS DEADLINE

unnamed

If you’re wanting to have a book made in time for Christmas delivery, the deadline to get the book ordered is 9:00am EST on DECEMBER 8th. Ordering the book by December 8th means that it will be delivered to you before Christmas.  If you need to ship the book once you receive it, you’ll need to order the book a few days earlier.  Another option is to DROP SHIP the book directly to your clients.

We are also giving you the ability to order a book later and pay a RUSH fee.  If for some reason you can’t get the order in by December 8th you will have the option of paying a 30% rush fee which will give you an extra 4 days to get the book in.  9:00am ESTDECEMBER 12th will be the rush deadline.  Again, this will ensure that YOU or the drop ship recipient will get the book by Christmas.  If you need a few days to deliver or mail the book after receiving it be sure to give yourself a couple extra days.

Also, in order to give our workers time with their families after an incredibly busy December, we will be closing the factory down from December 23-January 5.  If you order any books after December 12 without adding the rush option, please understand that these days will not be included in the typical 15 business day turnaround.

ALBUM DESIGN

Feeling overwhelmed with so many albums to design this time of year? Let us help! We’re now offering album design!  For just $79, $99, or $119 we’ll design up to 20, 30, or 40 spreads, upload to Album Exposure for proofing, and do 2 rounds of revisions! Additional rounds of revisions are $25.
