Meet the Team

As a team, we design an average of 30 albums per week. That's why there are a lot of us. But just because we're big, that doesn't mean you won't get personalized service. We keep your design preferences on file so that your needs are met no matter which designer you are working with. And if you happen to fall in love with one of us, (which has been known to happen) we will do our best to pair you up with your preferred designer whenever their availability permits. We look forward to getting to know your quirks; roll over our faces below to find out ours.
