Order and design this album with Jorgensen Album Designer (JAD) software.

Jorgensen albums have carefully chosen premium grade materials for their albums, many cover materials are included in the standard price of your album but those marked "upgrade" incur an additional cost, please refer to your price catalogue or on-line Price calculator.

Leather Look man-made materials that for all intensities are "genuine leather" in feel and texture.

Natural Leather ( upgrade ) like other natural materials has unique variations unlike man-made imitations. It is quite normal for dye colour, grain and natural markings to vary slightly across the hide. These variations emphasise the inherent beauty of a natural material and assures you are receiving an authentic product.

Linen our most popular choice for those looking for a modern and  contemporary look.

Silk ( upgrade )  a sophisticated beautiful modern classic.

Personalised embossing and foil printing

Customise the cover of your album with your clients name for that added touch! Details can be embossed or foil printed in the standard fonts Arial & Times or in any design supplied as a PDF but we suggest delicate script be avoided as details can be lost in the grain and texture of many cover materials.

Photo Covers                   

Our JAD Software lets you take complete control over the design of your Photo Cover.  You can choose to cover the entire cover in an image, or perhaps just a small section. Choice of standard Photo Cover or Acrylic.

Stitched Covers                 

Add stitching to your cover design for that extra touch!

Photo Inlays

Our JAD Software lets you take complete control over the design of your Photo Inlay. 

Similar to a quality framed picture, mounts are used, (we call them mats) to frame and enhance your image on each side of your album page. Mats sit slightly in from the page edge.

Customise your album with your own mat designs in JAD or use the existing templates. Choose from Standard Hessian texture mats, bevel core board with a flat smooth surface or twin mats, hessian texture but with a double mount around the aperture.

Standard Hessian Textured Mats.

Bevel Core Board Mat - flat board, no texture.

Twin Mats, Hessian Textured mat with a double mount around the aperture.

Vellum Fly pages

Vellum Fly leafs are a great way to personalise your album.  You can create any design you like and simply email us the pdf along with your order.

Studio Logo's

We create a unique embossing block of your logo based on the files you send us which we can use on all your albums.  We can emboss your logo on nearly all of our products in Black, White, Clear, Silver or Gold.

Fusion Pages

Add interest to your album with a Fusion page. Fusion pages are either a full page image with no mat at all or part mat and part image running from top to bottom or side to side.  These can be designed in the JAD software. Images sit slightly in from the page edge unlike the digital albums which are flush to the page edge

Flip Pages

Make a dramatic statement by adding up to two flip pages in any one album.  This allows you to display up to four pages side by side.

Design, Proof and Order with JAD. Jørgensen Album Designer (JAD) was ground breaking software when it was first launched and is still a simple and powerful tool for designing, proofing and ordering albums matted, digital or a fusion of both.

JAD is intuitive, choose the album of your choice, import your high resolution images and simply drag images onto blank pages to create a story line and you will be presented with design templates you can use.

Compromise no longer, JAD also allows you to edit any template or design from scratch so you can build a favourite template collection enhancing the speed of album designing with JAD.

Once you have a design JAD can create a PDF proof or slideshow files for uploading to your web gallery with the album cover selected for a genuine proof of your Jorgensen album.

Once you have finished the design, select ORDER and JAD takes you through a wizard of ordering, output image creation and FTP upload. We will then check the order, files and process the job contacting you with regards to delivery, payment and test files as required. Click here to Download JAD for free.

Colour Managment We always suggest to new clients we make test prints to ensure we are in harmony with your colour management. You can use RGB jpg or tiff files in sRGB or Adobe RGB 98 colour profiles but it is important you know which profile you have used and are consistant in your selection. If you are using Photoshop check your Colour Settings for RGB working space and Profile Mismatches should be enabled to warn you of any issues. When processing RAW files check your output colour profile. Selecting the wrong profile is the most common issue for poor prints. If in doubt please contact us, we are here to help.

You want to assemble your own albums using your own prints while the vast majority of clients want their albums delivered fully printed and assembled we also cater for those who wish to produce their own prints and assemble the albums themselves.  In these cases we can supply the album and mats separately, for more information and pricing please contact us.
