Your DVD in all its glory!

What do you do when you’ve put in so much effort to print those gorgeous DVDs for your clients and just can’t bear the thought of them being hidden? When you want nothing but to have it displayed in all its glory. In our continuous quest to use only the finest materials for our Artisan Series, we’ve opted not to use the regular foam buttons that you often see. Freshly flown in all the way from the US of A, we’ve got these new and simple crush-proof DVD buttons.  Just pop your DVD onto them, and they’re good to go. Like how we like things simple, just select the new DVD buttons in the Artisan Series DVD Folio order form when placing your order.

New ribbons!

We’ve recently added 18 precious new fabrics to the Artisan range, so we figured that the ribbons needed a little updating too! What do we do? Make a call to the US, flown in some gorgeous new satin ribbons, and now we have a total of 9 fabulous satin ribbons to choose from! Dress up the Artisan Folios and Keepsake Boxes, and even the Portrait Perfect Matted Prints Set with our new range of satin ribbons! Choose from Pure White, Ivory, Soft Pink, Burgundy, Brown, Orchid Purple, Sage Green, Olive Green and Navy Blue. Visit the Simplr gallery to see the new range of satin ribbons here.

Sokebana + Artisan

Merci beaucoup to the gorgeous Sokebana (Sophie Le Droumaguet) who is now featuring the Artisan Keepsake Box and Artisan Folios for her wedding and portrait packages! Sophie includes a photobook style album (which we do not carry) as her offering, but missing that finishing touch which would give it that ‘WOW!’ effect. So we’ve created a custom size Artisan Keepsake Box which will perfectly fit her album. The Artisan Folios add a finishing touch which complements her entire package. Sophie’s Artisan Keepsake Box is covered with the gorgeous Teal Canvas Premium Japanese fabric. Her folios are Dark Chocolate Shangtung and Ocha Green Shangtung. Sophie has loads more images of the Artisan Series. View her original post here or visit Sophie’s site at

Chloe Lodge + Artisan

Thanks to the awesome Chloe Lodge who blogged about the Artisan Folios! Chloe is a fascinating photographer (where on our second encounter, chatted for almost 3 hours!!), from studying Arts in France to being the right hand woman of Bear Grylls (yup, that’s right, that insanely adventurous bloke in Man Vs. Wild) whom I had the pleasure to meet.  Catch up with Chloe by checking out her website here or read the original post here.

Kamaruz Photography + Artisan Folios

All the way from the beautiful island of Borneo, Kamaruz Photography blogged about our precious Artisan Folio!  Thanks Sony! (Yup, that’s his name, pretty cool, doncha’ think).

Tendres baisers

Ahhhh France. Romance in the air, architecture which can only be described as majestic, a history of art that dates so far back, when it began is anyone’s guess. We’re so thrilled when one of the France’s best photographer, Jacques Mateos of Magic Flight Studio blogged about the Artisan Folios. View the original post at Jacques’ site here (note: it’s in french).

Pretty Little Things Asther Lau Photography

“(S)he’s very forward thinking…” were the exact words used to describe Asther of Asther Lau Photography by one of Malaysia’s most notable female photographer. Asther is one of the extremely few photographers who focuses her efforts solely on family portraits, and it has paid off tremendously. She has carved a niche for herself which has made her one of the most well known photographer capturing pregnancy, baby and family portraits. It’s pretty awesome that Asther has announced her new offering for 2012, and it is special. Asther’s Artisan Keepsake Box not only features a custom size, but exclusive fabric imported for her studio. So right now, there is no other studio with the same precious cover material, which makes it all that more special! ———————————————————————————————————————————- These gorgeous keepsakes from the Artisan Series are covered with precious Japanese fabrics specifically and exclusively imported for her, which makes her range probably the most unique in the country, simply because no one else...Read More >

Our Most Precious Keepsake Yet. The Artisan Keepsake Box

I have to admit, I personally am in love with these boxes. They take several hours of measuring, cutting and crafting, but the effort is totally worth it. Inspired by album makers from the USA, these beautiful boxes were nowhere to be seen or found in this region. I’m so excited to be the first to offer these boxes to photographers who are in search for something more than albums. I’ve made so many, but never got around to making one for my family. So perhaps the next round, that would be something to look forward to. I’ll be sure to post up some images of those. You’d think a box like this would only be suitable for weddings, but they make excellent keepsakes for family portraits too. They’re acid-free, which means with proper storage conditions, they’ll likely outlast the current generation. If you’d like to find out more about these gorgeous boxes, feel free to visit the Simplr website or if...Read More >

Leaning Tower of Artisan

Having still the photographer’s blood running in me, I couldn’t help but grab a picture of this. Just for kicks, I nicknamed it the Leaning Tower of Artisan. No matter how many folios I make, it always is a joy whenever the folios start to take shape (numerous paper cuts aside). The final touches of having the names imprinted is my absolute favourite. It is when just another folio now become someone’s folio. Next, ribbon, vellum, tag, and ribbon again, and off it goes! Visit the Artisan Folio page here.
