Introducing The Keepsake Collection - Rustic, bespoke & unique
Part of our philosophy here at The Second Star Photography is that our clients deserve the best and unique, beautiful and top quality products. I strive to provide exceptional service, beautiful photographs and outstanding products. I am a strong believer that photographs should be printed, not only stored on a USB - you can read more about why in one of my previous blog posts HERE.
Each and every Collection has been created paying particular attention to each product in it, to create amazing value to our clients. Each Collection includes products I absolutely adore and I believe each Collection deserves a blog post so you can fully appreciate and understand the products and their quality. I am absolutely in love with all of my products and I hope you will fall in love with them too after reading those blog posts. It may also help you decide if I am the right fit for your newborn photography needs. In today's blog post I will talk about The Keepsake Collection.
The Keepsake Collection is a newborn collection offered with my Studio Newborn Session, Maternity & Newborn Combo Session or Newborn Lifestyle Session. This collection includes 10 outstanding quality fine art prints with a unique, deckled edge, 10 digital high resolution copies of your selected prints on a wooden USB, a pair of cotton handling gloves and a stunning, fully personalised wooden box.
The gemstone of this beautiful collection is undoubtedly the beautiful fine art prints. These stunning art pieces are printed on the highest quality acid-free archival cotton rag paper, they have a stunning texture and beautifully rich colour. Each and every single print's edge then gets hand finished to create the beautiful deckled edge effect. The gorgeous feathered edge makes the prints feel and look truly unique and organic, it gives them character and elevates a beautiful fine art print into outstanding piece of artwork. The printed fine art deckled edge photographs included in this Collection measure 6"x4" with 0.5" white border edge. The overall print size will therefore be 6.5"x4.5". Should your photograph be of a square crop, it will be printed to 4"x4" with 0.5" white border edge.
The gorgeous feathered edge makes the prints feel and look truly unique and organic, it gives them character and turns a beautiful fine art print into outstanding piece of artwork.
The prints are securely separated with a thin protective translucent layer for individual protection and the Keepsake Collection is supplied with a pair of cotton gloves to ensure safe handling of the photographs. My printing lab specifies that these high quality museum grade prints should remain this colour and quantity for at least 100 years.
The Keepsake Collection also includes 10 high resolution digital copies of your chosen photographs with a print release, allowing you to print your images as many times as you'd like for your personal purposes. If you need any help selecting reputable printing lab that produces beautiful quality photographs with true-to-life colours, please contact us for assistance.
A part of the Keepsake Collection also is this beautiful bespoke wooden box. This stunning organic looking box is made of durable European plywood, it is lightweight and it is not only a beautiful presentation piece, but also useful item to keep your prints secure.
The overall measurements of the box are as follows: - The large print compartment is 6 x 8 inches (20x15 cm). - The smaller USB compartment is 1.6 x 8 inches (20x4 cm). - The overall box height is 1.2 inches (3 cm). The box can be personalised with a name, date of birth or a special message at no additional cost. Your chosen text will be engraved on the outside of the box. The box makes your Collection a perfect heirloom item, keeping your prints secure and protected for many years.
As you can tell, I am absolutely in love with this Collection. I am very passionate about prints and products as I believe all photographs deserve to be printed and displayed, rather than stored on USBs. The Keepsake Collection is a beautiful Collection for anyone who wants to have something unique and special, with slightly rustic and organic feel to it.
Q: What is the turnaround of the Keepsake Collection?
A: After you place your order and finalise your photo selection and engravement details, it takes between 2-5 weeks for the products to be made and delivered. Each product is hand crafted. My printing lab for the beautiful deckled prints is based overseas as there is unfortunately no supplier within the UK who would provide this type of prints with the outstanding quality I expect, therefore the turnaround of the products can be longer than for some of my other products. Once the prints arrive, they are carefully quality checked and packaged, ready for in person delivery (within Oxfordshire only, clients from other areas can opt to have their Collection delivered via courier). That's why it can take up to 5 weeks for the order to be processed and delivered. Trust me, it is worth the wait.
Q: Can I have more high resolution digital images along with the 10 included with the Keepsake Collection?
A: Yes! You can upgrade your Keepsake Collection and add additional high resolution digital images to your Collection. Each additional high resolution digital image is £20.00 including a print release.
Q: Can I just buy digital images?
A: No, we do not offer only digital images. Our brand philosophy is that photographs deserve to be displayed in the best way possible, hence why each of our Collections include beautiful bespoke products. We live in a digital world and I understand my clients desire to have digital images to share with their friends and family on social media, hence why we include a USB with high resolution digital images within each of our Collections.
