Private Label Packaging

When you order a photography product or service, many companies prominently place their logo for the whole world to see.  Great for them; not so great for you.  After all, you are offering personalized products and service in a relationship built on trust between you and your client.  Your album company doesn’t need to get in the middle.

For that reason, our albums and boxes are considered “private label”.  That is, our custom black boxes have no markings and are ready for your studio label.

The books themselves are not stamped with our logo either. In fact, many of our clients opt for THEIR logo to be stamped on the inside back cover of the book.  We have offered this stamping service to our clients – free – because it is exactly that…. a service.

By offering it, we strengthen your studio’s image and the relationship with you and your client.  THAT is what we’re here to support, and that’s the story of private label packaging. [Read more…]

Navy Book Cloth and Navy Leather!

The Navy has arrived!

Our clients who have “special ordered” these materials in the past will be pleased to learn we now carry both Navy book cloth and Navy leather as stock items!  This means you can specify either material for covers with no additional charge.

Navy is a hot color this year.  Gray and Rust are also still hot colors, and we introduced both book cloths as a stock items last year. [Read more…]

The Mark of Quality

When photography has become ubiquitous and temporary, how do you make a statement with your work?  For many professionals, simply posting images electronically isn’t the highest and best use for showcasing superior work.  In order to set your work apart, and to make it stand out, you will want to consider high quality prints either framed or bound into an edition.

When you get serious about creating a collection of your images or showcasing an event in book format, the quality and workmanship of the album is a reflection of your own work.  A quality album not only shows that you care about your work, it elevates your photography in a way that loose prints and electronic posting cannot match.

As photographers ourselves, we understand the importance of esthetics and brand when you present your work.  [Read more…]

Custom Book for a Non-Profit Organization


Physicians are often the last line of defense in countries where mortality from complications during labor and delivery, disease, and life-threatening disabilities are a daily reality.

Dr. Arthur Ammann approached Artisan Craftsman Books in order to create a unique edition for the purpose of raising awareness of the impact of AIDS on the victims of violence and rape in the Democratic Rebublic of Congo.

Dr. Ammann, whose career has spanned many fields including physician, researcher, activist, philanthropist and clinical professor at the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center, is also a co-founder of Global Strategies, a non-profit organization whose partners are frontline healthcare workers.

These books were designed with areas for custom calligraphy to be added to compliment the artwork on each of the pages. [Read more…]
