Dear Couture Book family,

We’ve acquired Couture Book from founders, Phyllis Lane and Rodrigo Coelho.  We want to thank Phyllis and Rodrigo for their vision, inspiration, and hard work, which has allowed Couture Book to thrive for over a decade.

We also want to thank YOU – our many loyal customers – for your business and support over the years.  We only exist because of you and we are very appreciative.

Our medium-term priorities are to update our website, update our file uploading and ordering process, and debut new, innovative book designs.

Because of the timing of the sale, we weren’t able to attend PhotoPlus this year.  We will attend WPPI in Las Vegas next spring.

In the short-term, we’ll be focused on keeping things running smoothly and delivering your holiday books on-time and hassle free.

If you have suggestions for how we can better serve you, have questions, or need assistance, please contact us at 877-472-1710 or

Best regards,

Clifton and Val Batchelor

P.S. If we haven’t met yet, Val has been Couture Book’s operations manager since the company’s founding.  She is joined by her husband, Clifton, who steps into the CEO role, bringing along several decades of tech, media and legal experience (and who has been helping with customer support for the past several months).
