I’m wanting to order a flush mount album and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good company. Our photographer does not offer albums. I’ve heard that Somerset is supposed to be good, but was wondering if there were other ones. I looked into Black River Imaging, but it seems like only professional photogs can order through them. Nation Photo Lab’s prices are lower, and they are also offering 20% off for the next couple of days which makes their album significantly less expensive than Somerset. At the same time, I want to make sure the quality is good. Any one with experience with either of those or any others? Thanks

Most quality lab companies are going to be available only for professional photographers. It worries me when I see photographers not offer albums, I always wonder “why?”. I personally don’t include them in packages but they are avilable for purchase. To me, aside from the quality of work, the thing that makes a professional stand out is what they can offer that “uncle bob” can’t – quality and professional products.
I’m not saying your photographer isn’t professional, but even if they don’t normally offer albums, if they’re a professional (with a business license, and accounts with pro labs) they should be able to get you an album.

@starfish0116: Agreed. I understand perhaps not having time to design the album if you’re a 1 person business, but with so many different ways to outsource the design it seems silly and narrow minded of a photographer to not at least offer it.

That’s one of the weirdest things I’ve ever heard. Your photographer won’t sell you an album?

Anyways!!! I am interested too … Any bees make their own flushmount? Who with? Did you like it, love it, recommend best company, quality, price ? Any photos of the album to share ?
