Your Portrait book also includes personalised embossing on the front cover in which a font and the messgae is chosen by you. They feature our “skinny” page option (approx .5mm) certainly not paper thin, but a little bit thinner than our standard Boutique Books pages.

Our Woodland Blocks are handmade, beautifully crafted with a rustic and organic finish. Each one is unique. The print is mounted on the wood, using techniques designed to eliminate any bubbling or warping of the print. The edges are hand sanded for a beautiful rustic style and we then seal the image for protection. The sealer we use is actually a fine art varnish, in a matte finish. It is normally used as a museum grade varnish for acrylic artworks. The varnish contains Ultra Violet Light Stabilisers (UVLS) to help reduce inevitable UV fading and damage. It also protects the artwork from dust and moisture damage.The surface of the block can be dusted with a soft cloth, and even gently wiped with a slightly damp cloth. However the sealer is not hard like furniture varnish, but a flexible polymer, so it WILL scratch if something is dragged across it.
As the wood is a natural product, there are always unique differences and irregularities between pieces. Keep in mind this is a hand made product. Our brush strokes are soft, but visible and there may be slight imperfections between blocks, as is the case with all handmade items. These blocks are created by hand, not by a robot in a factory.
Photographic prints are professionally printed on Lilford Galerie Prestige Photographic Papers with a standard archival value of 100 years in home display, or 200 years in dark storage. A coating have been added to provide additional protection against UV exposure. Prints should never touch glazing directly. It is recommended that a UV coated glass is used for an additional layer of protection. I do not pre frame your photographic prints as I know everyone likes to match their frames with what they already have in their house. These come in all of our packages as well as a Free 11×14 when you book in any session with KLD Photography.
Fine Art Canvas
Fine Art Canvases are professionally printed on a 380gsm Fine-Art Cotton/Poly Blend Canvas with a standard archival value of 100years. They are coated with a semi-gloss lacuer for additional abrasion protection and to filter out UV light. is material is perfect for reproducing hand-painted images as well as photographs, graphic art and anything in-between. The coating we use on our canvases means you can stretch your canvas cleanly using wooden stretcher bars without seeing any cracks or excessive distortion. Use a soft cloth or wool duster to clean.
All of KLD Photography’s clients will receive a USB drive whether you have had a wedding photographic experience or a portrait experience. All of our portrait clients receive a beautifully wooden boxed USB. Please remember that files can easily corrupt and flash drives can stop working without warning. For this reason it is recommended that copies of your images are kept on at least two other devices as a backup.
