If you’re looking for one of the most affordable ways to get the most images from your session, it’s through one of my favorite products: an heirloom folio box. With the option to include up to 20 of your favorite portraits, they’re a no-brainer for clients who want a variety of images but not in a traditional fine art album or who wish to display these matted portraits throughout their home. In week 29 of the Photography Blog Circle, I’m sharing all about one of my favorite products: heirloom folio boxes.
What is a folio box?
For most people, the term “folio box” sounds totally foreign, but its concept may be quite familiar for those who love smaller prints. Depending on what the photographer you’re working with offers, most folio boxes contain anywhere from five to 20 prints, often finished in professional-grade, acid-free frame mats that protect against the natural aging of the paper, add durability to your prints, and ensure longevity for archival-quality.
The actual style of these boxes varies too, ranging from all-natural eco-friendly options to luxurious linen-covered designs, so you’re sure to find one that complements the décor of your home as well as your session images. Bark & Gold Photography offers two heirloom folio box styles: a luxury linen design that is both classic and contemporary or an eco-friendly natural bamboo box paired with a stunning “floating” deckled edge print on its outer lid and a surprise bonus image on its inside. Each is internationally sourced and handcrafted to bring you a stunning one-of-a-kind product.
What are the benefits of a folio box?
When you consider the many benefits of a folio box, it’s no surprise that they are a popular product with Pittsburgh pet parents. Heirloom folio boxes have become a go-to for clients who prefer a tabletop display over signature wall art, especially those looking for something other than a fine art album.
One thing’s for sure: you aren’t going to want to store away the box itself as these puppies are a true work of art! With a versatile way to display your images following your session, heirloom folio boxes are an instant showstopper that you’ll want to display for all to see. The ability to take out select images and frame them or display them with a small tabletop easel is just an added bonus.
An heirloom folio box also makes a perfect storytelling piece. Investing in a 20-print box, for example, provides an opportunity to fill it with those must-have images from each session to create a complete visual story that documents that transitional first year of puppyhood or the beauty of the changing seasons during which your furry friend was photographed.
Lastly, if you’re looking for a product that provides the most bang for your buck, heirloom folio boxes top the list. With the option to fill the largest heirloom folio box with 20 matted 5×7 prints, you can easily enjoy a variety of photos that didn’t make the wall without the trying task of eliminating your favorites. One last value-add: each heirloom folio box includes the matching high-resolution digital files of ordered box images. (Winner, winner, chicken dinner!)

I really love the look of these boxes. I think they would be a neat way to display your photos and I love the fact that you can fit many photos in them.
Thank you! The bamboo is so beautiful and that cover with the torn edge print…I love it!
