What is a portrait box?


A portrait box, or folio box as it is sometimes called, is a keepsake box holding your precious memories. It is a treasure chest of art prints from your photography experience that you will hold onto for the rest of your life.


The one shown here is a luscious metallic gold leatherette box housing 11×14 inch white mats. Each mat holds a 7×10 inch print on fine art paper, guaranteed to last over 100 years without fading.


When you have a photography experience with me, whether it is for a portrait of yourself, your family or your newborn baby, you will get the option to purchase one of these wonderful items.

Product review: Acrylic gallery print by Saal Digital


What do we have here? Another review for a Saal Digital product! Despite what you may be thinking, I’m not sponsored by Saal Digital in any way. I just happened to see their advert on social media for a voucher for one of their wall products so I applied for it.

I have a set of small samples which I picked up at the SWPP trade show in January this year and I particularly liked the acrylic gallery print so I chose to get a larger one with my own photo with the voucher. I went for a 45 cm x 30 cm size.

What immediately struck me when I unwrapped the packaging was the lovely glossy sheen of the acrylic on top of the print. It is like highly polished glass but lighter and more resistant to shattering.


The print itself is of a very high quality. It is sandwiched between the acrylic glass and an Alu-Dibond panel which according to the website is the new trend for wall decors. I can see why because it looks and feels very high quality and robust.



There are several mounting options when ordering the product. I chose an aluminium subframe. It is basically a rectangular frame that is attached to the back of the Alu-Dibond panel with a hollow space to hang on a screw in the wall.


Overall, I am very happy. I can’t find any flaws in this product. As with the photo book that I reviewed earlier, the ordering process was easy and the delivery was quick. I received it in less than a week.

Now comes the hard bit – deciding on where to hang it!
