Our Top Products That Blend Digital and Print With Flair

Running a photography studio in the 21st century involves fencing many hurdles. And, one of those hurdles is making steady sales. More precisely, remaining profitable in an era where smartphones and point-and-shoot cameras have made it possible for practically anyone to capture decent images. On the photography side, it has raised the bar for you to give you best shot — anything average just won’t cut it! 

But, that’s not the only way digital has changed the face of the industry. If your experience is anything like your peers, you’re probably fielding requests for digital files now more than ever. There’s no question that clients are increasingly asking for digital photos. But the charm of printed albums hasn’t died out either. There’s market for both. And, a smart business person should tap into both. 

In other words, if you’re looking to grow your photography business, cut through the competition, and generate more revenue, you can’t stop at either digital or print. 

With that exact aspect in mind, here at Album Design Store, we have a range of products for professional photographers that bring together digital and print so you find it easier to capture both markets and let your clients enjoy the best of both the worlds.   

Photo Albums With USB/Flash Drive

These are from our signature album collection that include a handcrafted print album and a custom USB, tucked inside a beautiful presentation box. The entire set exudes style and sophistication at its best! No wonder, they continue to be one of our best sellers since the time we introduced them.    

When you decide to go with our complete sets, you get two brilliant choices: Wedding book with a custom made album box; and leather photo album with acrylic cameo cover.

All our albums are flush-mounted with up to 800gsm spreads to display your work of art in its most flattering version, while their form and finish ensure their longevity through generations.     

You can choose among matte, silk, and metallic options for paper type and 12+ leatherette varieties. Add unlimited customization options and what you have on hand is one power-packed product that can single-handedly solve your print/digital dilemma  

Digital Photo Albums

If you’re a professional providing both wedding photography and video services, Digital Photo Albums is designed for you. It takes your digital work to a whole new level, while still letting your photography shine. 

The addition of a detachable 10’’ LED screen lends this product an ultra-tech feel and your photos get showcased in their best form through the flush-mount album — everything housed in a handcrafted and customizable album box. 

If there’s one product you need to wow your wedding photography/videography clients, it is this one!  

Photo Print Box

Don’t be fooled by its name. It’s so much more than just a print box. It allows you to put the spotlight on your favorite captures from a shoot and lets you proudly display them in their high-definition printed glory with the option of showcasing your best shot as the cover image. The rest can be delivered in the flash drive that comes along with it. You can get your business name/logo etched for a classy touch of branding, while there’s plenty of ways to personalize it for your clients — engravings of the couple’s name, their special date or beautifully calligraphed motifs of their initials, meaningful lines or quotes printed as a loving reminder of the bond they share…it can be as creative as you want it to be!  

Your industry is changing at a rapid pace. We hope that with the smart use of these products, you can adapt to the changes and rise above the noise to build a formidable reputation and client base for your business. 

Top Reasons to Combine Digital with Print Photos

There’s an undeniable charm in print photos — they hold decades of memories in their real and raw, true-to-the-touch form. Perhaps that’s why we are drawn to the tangible, professionally-crafted albums.   

Even in today’s world where everything has become digital, print photos hold their own. There’s no doubt, wedding albums and photo books are a part of every conversation we have with every client. Our beautifully finished heirloom albums contribute to their brand and serve as the biggest USPs of their business.  

The fact is, digital is probably never going to replace print. 

Then, why should you club digital with your print photos? Is it better for your business? Let’s break it down for you. 

Keep pace with the changing market

As with everything else, digital has seeped into many areas of life, including how people prefer to store their photos. No wonder that you’re getting more requests for digital copies than ever. And, that’s one of the reasons we’re talking on this topic. 

As a photographer and business owner, it’s crucial to be aligned with the market trends. And, offering digital copies with your printed albums is a step in that direction. There are also ways to stand out while doing so. For example, you can take advantage of the ultra-premium look and feel of our gorgeous handcrafted albums teamed up with USB flash drive — all perfectly packaged in an equally stunning presentation box that bears your logo.  

Ultimately, your business model must evolve to ensure you cater to the market and remain profitable. From this perspective, combining digital and print is just business 101.

Protection against accidental damage

Today, we recognize the need for digital files as a way to back up our print photographs. Your clients do as well. After all, no one wants to lose precious memories to unforeseen events like a house fire or flood. 

By giving your clients a backup of photos, curated and presented professionally, you’re making sure that they have a neatly organized high-quality digital version of their photos to fall back on if they happen to lose their printed photographs. You can be sure that your clients will appreciate the effort. 


Offer digital as a value-added service 

You might be wondering how to set yourself apart from droves of other photographers who are offering digital files to their clients? You can make a big difference by packaging your digital and print photo combo in a way that delights your clients and leaves a positive impression of your brand. 

You can position digital as a value-added service with little to no markup to promote your primary business — your photography delivered to your clients in the form of high-quality printed artwork. 

Check out our products designed specifically for this purpose. They combine the rich aesthetics of the most premium print products with the modern twist of USB flash drives through which you can provide professionally edited digital images to your clients. 

Like our other print products, these albums are immensely customizable to suit you and your clients. 


Add a feather in your customer service cap    

When you add a flash drive of high-quality digital copies to your printed albums, you’re enhancing the experience of your clients, letting them know you care about their needs, and on top of that, getting the option to put a higher price tag on the combined experience — all in one stroke.

In conclusion

Adding digital photos to your print offerings is not about tossing over a bunch of raw files to your clients. It’s an extension of your craft and can well contribute to the way your brand is perceived. 

So the next time you’re approached by a client asking for digital copies, remember these reasons. Or better still, make digital a part of your offering to future-proof your business. We can help you do that!
