On May 1, Creative Memories introduced the Leather Premium StoryBook. This photo book contains double-weight, lay-flat pages and has a genuine leather cover. The stitched leather cover makes the book special. The Leather Premium StoryBook is available as a standard book and with a window.
The leather cover is genuine leather, not bonded leather or artificial leather. Bonded leather contains small leather particles in a synthetic binder. Artificial leather includes leatherette, faux leather, and pleather. It is made from paper or plastic textured to look like leather, but does not actually contain leather. Only genuine leather has the look, feel and durability of real leather.
The leather used in the Leather Premium StoryBook is chrome tanned to ensure durability. Unlike many other tanning processes, chrome tanning provides durability and protects against air pollution. Chrome tanning also avoids the high acidity associated with some other tanning processes.
Finally, the leather for these StoryBooks is coated with a protective layer to protect against accidental spills and damage.
Not all leather photo books are identical. Many books that are available are not made with genuine leather. Others are far more expensive and available only from professional photographers. Only with the Creative Memories Leather Premium StoryBook do you get the value of a high-quality genuine leather photo book at an affordable price.
Caring for your Leather Premium StoryBook
- Avoid areas where the humidity is either too low or too high, such as attics or basements. Humidity above 75% can cause mold growth and swelling. Humidity below 25% can cause shrinkage. Extreme dryness, heat, and changes of temperature and humidity can cause warping, stress fractures, and cracking.
- Our Leather Premium StoryBooks are manufactured with a protective coating. The leather requires no conditioners or other treatments. Should your album cover require cleaning, use a mild soap with a damp cloth. Avoid abrasive cleaners.
