Preserving Memories: A Journey Through Folio Albums’ Workshop

Over in the heart of Yorkshire lies one of my all time favourite companies to work with. Folio Albums.

Stewart at the team invited me and a few other photographers and videographer over for a behind-the-scenes look at their workshop. Offering unique insights into their craftsmanship and dedication to preserving memories.

As a photographer AND as a parent of two small children, I’ve always emphasised the importance of tangible keepsakes and I am genuinely passionate about it!

In a digital age where technology moves fast, there’s something truly special about holding a printed photograph in your hands. Feeling the texture of the paper, and reliving those cherished moments.

This Is More Than Printing A Wedding or Family Album…

Before I even started writing this, I knew it would become more than just a ‘Best Wedding Albums’ blog.


Because Folio Albums helps it become much more than a photo album.

Our day at Folio Albums was really just labelled as a marketing day and fun workshop ‘behind the scenes’ tour.¬†

But it wasn’t just about marketing strategies; it was a journey through the artistry and passion that goes into creating each album within Folio’s walls.

With the added bonus of learning some amazing marketing tools and making plans for my own business!

I’ve always known myself and Folio share this passion for printed products but this day really reinforced this for me.

True Craftmanship with Eco Credentials

After feeling inspired and energised by our marketing talk it was time for the Folio workshop tour!

The team at Folio Albums walked us through every step of the process, from selecting the finest luxury materials to meticulously crafting each page with precision and care.

It was evident that they didn’t just see themselves as album suppliers but as another member of our team who could help us help our clients.

From recommending products, to guiding us through the process of creating and ordering and even helping suggest the perfect material choices for each project. Folio know their stuff.

Folio really understand the importance of preserving memories for generations to come and that’s why, for me, Folio really do go above and beyond when it comes to creating these heirlooms for me and my clients.

Luxury Yet Sustainable

What struck me most was their commitment to quality and sustainability.

Unlike mass-produced albums churned out by big corporations, every Folio Album is crafted with attention to detail, ensuring that each piece is a true work of art and unique to your story.

From explaining why they chose certain materials to ensure they’re of high quality yet sustainable, to showing us first hand how they reduce waste, this really was an amazing insight to their eco credentials.

They source their materials ethically, prioritising sustainability without compromising on excellence. This not only goes for the physical products but how they run their business too!

A Passion For Print – Investing In Your Future

But beyond the technical aspects, what truly sets Folio Albums apart is their passion for storytelling.

They understand that each photograph has a narrative to tell, whether it’s the joy of a couple saying “I do” or the laughter of a family gathered together.

By turning these moments into tangible keepsakes, they ensure that these stories endure, passed down from one generation to the next.

In an age where digital files can be lost with a click of a button (trust me, I know first hand!), investing in printed products is more important than ever.

Not only do they serve as a tangible reminder of life’s most precious moments, but they also become cherished heirlooms, connecting us to our past and inspiring future generations.

Building Relationships and Shared Goals

As I reflect on my day at Folio Albums in Yorkshire, I’m reminded of the value of building relationships with other small businesses and having shared goals together.

After a few bad experiences finding an album company to help me create printed products, the passion and desire Folio have to help your business succeed really shone through.

Beyond providing exceptional products and services, they are an incredible team, embodying the spirit of craftsmanship and dedication.

In a world that’s constantly changing, some things remain timeless. And thanks to businesses like Folio Albums, the art of preserving memories in this way is thankfully one tradition that will never fade away.
