HOPE :: DVD presentation box

Introducing HOPE - dvd case for those who always wanted to present something simple, clean yet beautiful. HOPE is a dvd presentation box that comes in black or white (we are planning to add more colors later on) and is made out of the same material as Dream Box / luxurious album presentation box. If you have been in love with these items, you can provide the seamless product line to your clients by adding HOPE - digital file presentation box. HOPE can be used for any digital package with a DVD, multiple 5x7 printed proofs (up to 10), 1 5x7 folded card of COPYRIGHT / DIGITAL COPY RELEASE. The details are as follows:
  • built in protective cushion (inside top / bottom)
  • a loop ribbon for easy lift of documentation or proofs - removable
  • cd mounted by 5mm soft mold (bottom of the box)
  • a finger hole for easy lift of DVD
  • dimension : 5.25 x 7.25 x 0.5 (inside) / 5.5 x 7.5 x 0.75 (outside)
  • beautifully hand made / sold 8 as set
:: Kyung's Testimonial through Yellowhale Photography :: PLAY the video below to view HOPE product in action!

Now that I offer more mini sessions to my every year clients or someone who want to try out but not ready to spend a full session with me or as maternity sessions, I needed a simple and easy way to present a smaller digital package that still goes with my other product line and fits my branding. HOPE digital presentation box was perfect for the purpose as I wanted my clients to feel well treated, but I did not have to spend much time designing Dream Box as the session was mini and not fully charged. It is ready made, quick but nice! I would put thumbnails of all files on 5x7 proofs just in case the clients want to re-order in the future. These little thumbnails work like a charm~ when they see it, they want to have it reordered. I also include digital copy release and how to care DVD and copyright information made into a 5x7 folded card. Re-ordering process / contact information is also a great reminder. I LOVE the flush cushion insert inside the box. the material looks great, feels smooth, DVD fits perfect!

Quality Hot Stamp on Black Leatherette Cover

We meant to post some images of our quality hot stamp on Black Leatherette cover. As many of you already know, Dream Albums come with BLACK leatherette as its basic cover option. It is great for those who are more timeless + elegant style with clean look! Our lightly textured leatherette is so beautiful (and it feels far nicer at your finger tip!) and is available to customize by adding HOT STAMPing.

Simply send us a 300 dpi PSD file with the HOT STAMP design, we will add it to FRONT or BACK of the cover - where you want it to be!! Seeing is believing! We are sharing Melissa Olson's Black Leatherette 9x9 Dream album to show what it looks like! 


Show off Your Dream - Johnna Brynn

Happy New Year to everyone!!! We have been getting many of wonderful SHOW OFF YOUR DREAM entries and did not get to post them recently. Below is one of our most recent entry from Johnna Brynn ( We loved making this wonderful Dream Album 9x9 for her and her client! 

Johnna added, " It is my delight to present to you this amaaaaaazzzzing wedding album printed with The Dream Album Co. When I first held a Dream Album in my hands at WPPI last year in Las Vegas, it actually did something to my insides. I can’t explain it, because it somehow instantly gratified my tactile obsession while going beyond just the tangible and entered a realm of utter bliss. That’s the only way I know how to explain the feel of this incredible quality of an album. It’s luster, mysteriously-never-attracting-fingerprints-cover with dense, rich 2mm thick archival fuji pages handcrafted from artisan Japanese paper -make for an incredible wedding or portrait album. I have done extensive research and testing on many different album companies, and I am pleased to have landed on what I believe to be the coolest album company out there. Thank you, Dream! "

We offer $75 Dream Credit to the selected SHOW OFF YOUR DREAM entry. Please note that when you submit your Dream Product Shots, send us along your blog post with product images at 1000 px in width without watermark. We LOVE to hear from you what you have to say about our service and product. 


Best Wishes for Tiny Sparrow

When we launched our Wish Album in December of last year, we combined it with a fundraiser for the Tiny Sparrow Foundation. We are so very humbled to announce that though your purchases during the launch we raised $1000 for the foundation. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support! 

We were elated to present the Tiny Sparrow Foundation in with this donation to assist them in continuing their mission to provide a photography session and accompanying Memory Set at no cost to families with children facing life-threatening illnesses. 

The Tiny Sparrow Foundation was born from the heart of Lidia Boicu, a 34 year-old breast cancer survivor who found solace in photography amidst the surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation she endured while battling the disease. She quickly realized her dream of becoming a professional photographer and had a great desire use her talents to help other families whose children were touched by cancer. Though this process, she became inspired to create the Tiny Sparrow Foundation. 

What the foundation offers is a magical gift of incredible generosity. In addition to our financial donation, we are especially grateful to have had the opportunity to provide the albums to accompany the foundation’s first session for Kate Mcrae, a little girl who was diagnosed with cancer at age 5. Images of those albums were shared previously on our blog

We encourage you to visit the Tiny Sparrow Foundation’s website and consider making a donation to support this worthy cause and to visit Katie Mcrae’s website to offer your support and prayers for her and her family. 

Best wishes to Lidia, Kate and the Tiny Sparrow Foundation, may 2010 be a year filled with blessings for all of you!
