Mario Acerboni have just introduced a small studio portrait album for photographers. The album has a classic card border and can be supplied with prints or without so that photographers can insert their own. It has a quality card window aperture of 8x8 and suitable for either 1 image or a pre designed composite image allowing more images to be classically displayed in the 5 leaf album (10 sides). At only £35 + vat (prints extra) this allows photographers to perfect opportunity to give clients a portrait package with a bit extra. Apart from the all important wall art your clients would have some extra prints in a quality family album that can be cherished forever. The great advantage to photographers is the album is more likely to be showed to a bigger audience as the wall art will obviously be nailed firmly to their wall.
