About us

Our Story

This philosophy is fundamental in the innovation and craftsmanship that goes into every product that we handcraft here in New York.

Renaissance Albums / Album X Corp. was founded in 1988. What started as a modest family operation grew through bold dreams, determination, and hard work. We wanted to manufacture the best photo albums in the world and weren’t willing to compromise or be intimidated by what it took to deliver quality. Slowly, the little album company that could, did. Renaissance Albums’ reputation for fine albums and customer care began to stir the industry. 

By 2000, Renaissance Albums purchased a manufacturing facility in Port Chester, NY – along the Greenwich, CT border near the Long Island Sound, 20 miles northeast of New York City. Thankfully, the building was right next door to our old factory, so we were able to keep the entire Renaissance family intact.

In 2002, Renaissance Albums began a custom digital division featuring the first one-stop professional album shop offering print, mount, and bind services. Since then, we have been at the forefront of the digital photography revolution, actively involved in satisfying photographer’s new needs.

It’s now 2022 and we have witnessed incredible leaps in the album industry and the world of digital photography. We are driven to stay on top of the ever advancing technology, and thus continually improve our product lines. Renaissance Albums now offers the most sophisticated album building techniques and materials in the industry while still manufacturing everything by hand.
