Please note, as this is a super busy time of year we can’t make any guarantees on album delivery dates.  We do promise though to try our hardest to meet your deadlines!

Orders received after these dates cannot be guaranteed a Christmas delivery so we recommend you get your orders in earlier rather than later!

Tip: To ensure there is no delays in processing your album, please make sure you have included all the flyleaf files, embossing instructions etc to ensure there is no delay.

WELCOME TO THE FAMILY

WELCOME TO THE FAMILY

Today we are delighted to welcome Fitzgerald Photo Imaging to the Jorgensen Team.  From 1 July 2015, we are thrilled to announce that Fitzgerald Photo Imaging (or Fitzie’s as they are commonly know!) will be Jorgensen’s official Album distributor in Australia and New Zealand.

IT’S BETTER WHEN WE ARE TOGETHER

For over 30 years Jorgensen and Fitzgerald have worked together serving professional photographers all over Australia.  Managing Director of Fitzgeralds, Paul Maietta and his team have built an awesome “one-stop-shop” for professionals looking for anything from prints, frames, acrylic or aluminium mounts through to photo books and professional wedding albums, USB and DVD presentation products, retouching, album design….. and a host of other products and services.  It is their amazing product selection, expertise and commitment to their clients that made them the perfect team to carry Jorgensen into the future.

We feel that now is a perfect time for this alliance. Working together, we can now offer you even better customer service 6 days a week, expanding print and framing services, expert print and digital imaging advice plus streamline your customer experience.   

The Fitzie’s Team are excited for the future of Jorgensen and looking forward to getting to know our Jorgensen Community better.

LOOKING FORWARD

The Jorgensen Team isn’t going anywhere!  This opportunity allows Jorgensen Head Office to concentrate on creating new products for our growing global Jorgensen community, streamlining production for our clients and expanding into new markets, while Fitzgerald can continue to grow and support our Australian and New Zealand community of photographers.

From 1 July all orders will be received, managed and dispatched by the team at Fitzies, however, that is the only thing that will change from your end!  You will still create your albums and place orders exactly the same as you do now, so hopefully there is minimal (if any!) interruption to your workflow.  There will be changes to our team structure of course as we grow this new alliance, however, you will still receive the same service and support you receive now.

The Jorgensen Crew will be re-locating to Fitzgerald’s on June 15 to begin our new journey and ensure the transition will be as smooth as possible for all our wonderful photographers!  Don’t worry though, all our emails and telephone numbers will remain the same so you will always be able to reach us!  Plus, you will now be able to reach us 6 days a week with longer business hours to service our customers. Check out our new contact details as of 15 June below:

We look forward to growing together. We hope you join us.

Creating your first Album…

Creating your first Album…

Firstly, welcome to our world of handcrafted goodness.

This is just a quick email to introduce you to creating your first bespoke album with Jorgensen plus a few tips and tricks that may help you along the way!  Creating your first album with Jorgensen is easy as 1, 2, 3…..

STEP 1: CHOOSE A STYLE

We have lots of different  styles to choose from and we know it can be confusing! Whilst there is lots to know, we would like to sum it up as follows:

FINEART ALBUMS

These albums are hand crafted using Smooth Fine Art Paper & the design allows your images to run across a double page spread with no gap in the crease.

PRESS BOOKS

A choice of smooth or textured “Fine Art Style” papers with a matte finish. Images are printed using Indigo Press Printing.

TRADITIONAL MATTED ALBUMS

A selection of classic matted albums (Styla / Pro Bound / Art / Fusion) with card mats overlaying each image.  Printed on professional photographic paper.

FLUSHMOUNT ALBUMS

Printed on professional photographic paper & the design allows your images to run across a double page spread with no gap in the crease (Digital Art / Fusion / Mini Digital Pocket Books).

DIY ALBUMS

These albums are straight off our shelves and can be delivered to your doorstep (DIY Matted / DIY Peel n Stick).

Confused about which Album Sizesto offer? Our most popular album sizes are 9×9 / 12×12 / 10×14 !


STEP 2: DESIGN + PROOF

All our bespoke albums are created and ordered through our Jorgensen Album Design Software, or as we like to call it, JAD!  The software will automatically adjust the bleeds and trims for all your images so there is no need to spend hours adjusting every image!

Want some more JAD Tips? Check out our Welcome to JAD Blog Post!

Ask your local distributor about Test Prints & Sample Discounts!


STEP 3: ORDER!

Once you are happy with your order simply send it off for print and assembly in JAD!

Once you send us off your first order through JAD you will receive an automatic email back from JAD to confirm your order.   Shortly after this we will contact you with your order details and final price.   This is the perfect time to check that all the information we have about your order (including your delivery address) is correct.  Once we receive payment we will commence you order.

Please allow approximately 3-5 weeks for us to create your custom album.

2015. Let’s do it.

2015. Let’s do it.

Welcome to a brand new year.

It has been an “interesting” past few years as many of us have had to come to grips with changes to our market.  Those new  to Weddings and Portraits are blessed as they don’t have the baggage of the past to carry with them and for them, this is all quite normal – what’s all the fuss?

However, I believe this year is the turning point for those who have managed to get through the past few years and we at Jorgensen’s, intend to be at the fore front  with new products and changes to our collection line up.  We think the market is broader than it’s ever been and that there are more opportunities and products available to photographers now than there has ever been.  We may not cater to everyone – but we believe we now have the best collection of products and services than we have ever had, from matted , through to flush mount, DIY and coming VERY SOON Press Books (we think this may just be our best product yet!).  Together with our extensive range of off-the-shelf products for packaging of DVD’s and USB’s, there should be something for most.

To start the year, the annual SWPP event in London kicks off next week and  Nick and his team from SWPM will be there to show off our new PRESS PRINTED Books, new linen covers and additions to the Studio Collection.

Next week we head down South to Bunbury for a meeting with the South West Chapter of the WA AIPP (sounds like a bikie gang!).  Looking forward to catching up with some of our old and new friends. And, let’s not forget the Decathlon on 22 January which will be such an inspirational way to start the new year.  To find out more about these events head to the WA AIPP EVENT SITE.

Later in June this year, we’ll be at The Event which for the first time is being held in Perth.  We hope to see many of our Eastern State cousins make the journey to enjoy the West Aussie hospitality.

A lot happening.  If you want to keep up to date, why not join our mailing list (hint: scroll down on our homepage!) We promise we won’t bombard you!

All the best for 2015.

Award Winning Album Design

This absolutely GORGEOUS album design by Jennifer Skabo Photography recently won the 2013 Australian Institute for Professional Photography (AIPP) EPSON Tasmania State Silver Award for Album Design.

We just loved the post production work on the images and clean layout of Jennifer’s album design so much we had to share it with you all. Truly an award winning album design. 

We think this is the perfect inspiration for a Monday!

Congratulations Jennifer Skabo Photography!

NEW Coreboard Mats

We are excited to announce that we are introducing new coreboard mats into our collection of matted albums*.

The current trend of textured fabrics & the success of our Linen Collection inspired us to find a more textured mat that is in keeping with the current trend. Our new mats have a wonderful textured finish which really contrasts with the sleek photographic images to create a stunning matted album.

We will be phasing these new textured mats in over the coming weeks as our current coreboard mats will be discontinued.  

*Please note, our new mats will be introduced to our UK Customers at a later date. Holland Customers please contact your local distributor, Verka.
