Whether it’s a website, business cards, a piece of furniture or even a house, there’s a saying I always think about when I’m having something made…

“Good. Fast. Cheap. Choose two.”

You can get a well made product but if you want it fast, be ready to pay a premium. You can get it cheap but if you’re looking for quality you better be willing to wait a while.

This was similar to the problem I ran into as a photographer looking for an album company. The things I was looking for: Quality. Affordability. Simplicity… I just couldn’t find in one company. This is why Madera Books was created.

Quality, handmade books at a fair price and a simple ordering process.

This was our focus in the beginning and it remains our focus now. What we’ve discovered though, is that while people want things to be simple, they also want options. Sizes, cover materials, colors, price points. Over the past 8 years we’ve put together a line of products that gives you choices and an ordering system that keeps things simple.

Is Madera the perfect book company? I’d like to think so but, really, I guess it depends on what you’re looking for. What I can say though, is that Madera is the kind of company I was looking for years ago and I’m incredibly proud to be a part of it now.

Give us a shot.
