  • Marie on April 15, 2011

  • Hailey on April 15, 2011

    The inspiring colours, the lush velvet texture, and the socially and environmentally conscious way these are produced is exquisite. Using 100% post consumer waste sets these albums apart and is something any environmentally friendly individual can be proud of owning. Oh to own such a stunning album!
  • Katie B. on April 15, 2011

    They had me at their website. I love how whimsical and beautiful their work is. I love the idea of an album that is more than just a housing for some of my favorite memories--but instead a rich and tactile element that would beckon me to pick it up and remember.

    I love the the colors and that they look so soft.
  • Whitney on April 15, 2011

    I love these so much. The colors are so lush and they would be perfect for baby albums as well as wedding albums. The only problem is that it would be extremely difficult to choose one color! *I am also in love with the dress on the model!

  • Gem on April 15, 2011

  • Jen Harris on April 15, 2011

  • monica on April 15, 2011

    I love the vevlet handmade products because I've been wearing velvet since I was in the 5th grade. All the cards are more than just products they are so vintage-que that make the wedding all worth while!

  • Sarah Ballard on April 15, 2011

    The green one looks like it grew from a mossy rock on the forest bed. I want to write my fairy-tales in it.
  • Sarah on April 15, 2011

    Everything about these pieces is stunning; the texture of the fabric and the way it catches the light particularly attracts me to them. The color choices are absolutely exquisite. The design is not busy, it is not trying too hard. The design of the photo albums is classic and will never go out of style, yet they can multitask to perfectly accent the on-trend vintage weddings that are so popular this year. I would proudly feature one of these guest books or photo albums on my coffee table for the rest of my life!
  • Kelly on April 15, 2011

    I love the classic feel of velvet, yet the unexpectedness of using it to cover books. So pretty!
  • Catherine on April 15, 2011

    I love the beauty and craftsmanship in the books. They are truly a work of art. Thanks.

    The albums are truly classic with a nod to modernity. They would look lovely on the bookshelf as newlyweds and for grandchildren to pull down and peek through. Timeless, comfortable, lovely.

    I love the color options for the covers. They are so elegant - I would have a hard time choosing.

  • Laura Modigliani on April 14, 2011

    oh oh I really want to thieve you but I have really tiny arms! Unparalleled elegance that only a ferocious dinosaur could embody in its Cretaceous toe claw.
  • Ann on April 14, 2011

    I love the albums and those darling cards!
  • Michelle on April 14, 2011

    I love the beautiful colors of the books! They would make such a statement at my wedding!!
  • Renata Redford on April 14, 2011

    The duality of Velvet Raptor products - their simple, luxury - is what attracts me most. Each piece is a timeless homage to our memories, written or photographed, that will be opened for decades with love. Maybe one day those small fingers that haven't been born yet will sit on our lap, flipping through the pages, asking, "how did you feel that day?" And the velvet will feel the same way it did the first time - like velvet joy. So, I'm a dork, but these are gorgeous!
  • Tara on April 14, 2011

    As a photographer, I am always looking for the latest albums that are both artistic and eco-friendly. These look like a unique addition to the marketplace! So exciting!! I LOVE VELVET!!
  • Lindsay L on April 14, 2011

  • Kate on April 14, 2011

    The rich texture and the welcoming colors just call for you to open, to look inside and to imagine all the possibilities of the blank pages. How beautiful!
  • Ashley on April 14, 2011

    I am enraptured by the dove gray albums and cards! We are planning a wedding for next January, and want a cozy/elegant/organic day, so Velvet Raptor's collection is pure inspiration...
  • Tracy on April 14, 2011

    Love love LOVE that they're eco-friendly and recycled!
  • camille on April 14, 2011

    What I love most about velvet raptor is that their gorgeous books are eco-friendly. Reading about their production on the site was really impressive. And the books remind me of a simple velvet-covered book I had as a child where I would write my secrets. This would make a perfect wedding book for us!
  • Jenny King on April 14, 2011

    I am in love with these, so NOT your typical photo album!
  • Erin on April 14, 2011

    What I love most about velvet raptor is the romantic texture! So perfect for holding your most precious memories of your wedding!
  • Terilyn Brown on April 14, 2011

    I love the albums, stunning really, but I think my biggest crush is on the cards! Would totally love to win an album... could convert me. Thanks for the opportunity!!
  • Rae on April 14, 2011

    I love that these albums are worthy of the photos they'll contain. Most albums out there offer cliche designs, less than stellar workmanship, and less than authentic heart. These are truly awesome, keepsake, keeper works of art for the home. I've already bought four of the large ones in avocado, tourmaline, sea green, and goldleaf (not as wedding albums, but for my regular photo albums) and I hope that the line keeps producing new colors in keeping with their remarkably keen sense of modern vintage style. (Also, those cards? Are fantastic. And the clear slipcases? Talk about a killer tie-in! I know *exactly* what I'll be asking Santa for next Christmas...)
  • Mila on April 14, 2011

    Love the organic feel of these albums! Would love to have one for our special day!
  • Alexis on April 14, 2011

    Oh my gosh - these are exactly what I have been looking for! I love the vintage look.
  • Emmy on April 14, 2011

    oh my word. that chartreuse velvet book...please let me have it for my november wedding!!!
  • Taryn on April 14, 2011

    You had me at velvet! Their creative design is perfect in every way and the die cut cards are exactly what I should and must be writing on. Now if only I could get my employer to have stationary like this. Cheers and a big shout out to the Velvet Raptor! Taryn
  • dana b on April 14, 2011

    whoa, i've never heard of velvet raptor before, but i am in love... everything is just spectacular!! the albums look sturdy and durable.. not cheap and quick.

  • Meghan Criswell on April 14, 2011

    Velvet Raptor designs are gorgeously understated and classic. Unlike my parents' orange and brown floral wedding album that screams "Can you dig it?", Velvet Raptor's albums will quietly curtsy and invite you back in time. I also love the company name. Velvet Raptor, to me, is synonymous with love, because like love it is simultaneously soft and luxurious and ferociously consuming.
  • Hillary on April 14, 2011

    I think my favorite part is the name (oh, Bree said that just before me). Love it.

  • rachel smith on April 14, 2011

    Loooove the orginiality!!! Love the vintage look!
  • Bree on April 14, 2011

    I love the name. It reminds me of a soft and cuddly velociraptor, which is great because I imagine they are most certainly anything but. Alright, in all seriousness, these are gorgeous! They're dripping with so many textures, visual and physical. It's like it's a new discovery straight from an old attic full of vintage heirlooms, except I doubt one would ever actually end up in the attic.
  • Sarabina M on April 14, 2011

  • Jessica H. on April 14, 2011

    Wind-power milled paper? Crushed velvet fit for the delicate hands of a queen? Chocolate as a colour? What's not to love? In all honesty, I would be very excited for my kids to pull down one of these albums asking for stories.
  • meg on April 14, 2011

    I would be absolutely elated to own one of these albums. They're not only beautiful but they're made with an emphasis on love, concern for our environs and an eye toward a better future! It's the perfect marriage of style and social awareness that I try to support in my own life.

  • Shannon on April 14, 2011

    I love how Velvet Raptor's products are so high quality and are built to last. They look like treasured heirlooms that I would want to pass on for generations to come!
  • Megan Suszynski on April 14, 2011

    Unique. Simple. Rustic. Lovely. Soft. Tasteful. Timeless. - Gorgeousness. These are all words my mother has used to describe my wedding day...words that seem so apt in describing Velvet Raptor's beautiful artistry. My mother would adore an album like this to remember what she has deemed 'the best party she's ever attended'. (we got married in october and she still hasn't stopped gushing about it...and continues to ask me daily when she can get her hands on an album. i think it must have been meant to be, and i've been secretly holding out for this contest. telepathy.) Nice work, Velvet Raptor - a work of art, indeed.
  • Bethany on April 14, 2011

    I love the look of the books. Our wedding was very rustic and I think the vintage quality of the books would lend well to carrying our theme even into the album. This would be a dream come true!

  • Katherine S. on April 14, 2011

    Aside from Velvet Raptor being eco-friendly, I love how they strive to use local bindery as well! Green and locally made? Now that's something we can all love. (: And did I mention how neat the velvet is! Why does no one make anything out of velvet anymore?

  • Julie on April 14, 2011

    I've seen these before and looove them! What a great look! I love the cards too, but my favorite item would have to be the albums. I would get the Velvet Album 10 in Tournaline. It would be an album I'd actually display, and hopefully someday would page through them with my daughter's if I'm lucky enough to have any.

    These albums seem to live and breathe in this delectable, sensual manner. they appeal to the eyes - in a smooth, distinct, antique way, the same way an antique jewel draws your gaze. and they appeal to the touch - you want to stroke their covers for years to come, knowing your precious memories are timelessly preserved in a truly unique piece!

  • Molly T on April 14, 2011

    I'm adoring these albums - I wanted a amazing, beautiful bound album for our photos and these would really do the work of our photographer, Emma Case, justice. Le sigh... I hope we win, otherwise there goes next month's ice cream/treat/shoe/summer dress budget...!

    I've been hunting for a wedding album for the past year and these are the best ones I've seen! The vintage look of a velvet-bound album will go perfectly with our letterpress wedding stationery and typewritten pages that we plan to include in our album :D

    I just love how lush and expensive they look! This would make a wonderful guest book for my wedding.

    These are beautiful, and I love that they are eco-friendly! The paper is even milled with windpower!

    Holy smokes! Velvet bound books...I want to stack these up on my coffee table. I adore Velvet Raptor!

    I love that these pieces are true keepsakes, classic and timeless in style. And for our small August wedding, a small album would be just perfect.

    These are awesome! I love how they are so simplistic, and so old-fashioned! Bringin' back the velvet:)
