Handmade Custom Albums

We believe it’s important to have tactile artifacts from your wedding day to enjoy and share with family and friends. One of our favorites is a custom-designed album that showcases your favorite images and brings together the narrative of your day.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to get you started. 

 

 

Step 1 – Choose images for your album

●  Log in to your event website using your password.

●  Select images for your album by simply clicking the heart icon on the image and creating a new list of favorites just for the album. You can also create a list right here for your prints. You can revisit them at any time using your same email address and clicking the heart icon at the top right corner of the window.

 

Our albums start with 20 pages (10 spreads). Depending on how the design shapes up a 20 page album will typically hold about 35-50 pictures and you may add more photos is you like.

 

While every album design is unique, we’ve found that most layouts have about 2-3 images per page – some pages will have multiple images, whereas others may stand entirely on their own.  The maximum page count for albums is 80 (about 175 images over 40 spreads), which is helpful to keep in mind if you’d like to add more photos.

 

Try to choose a variety of images including details, moments, and portraits from throughout the day. We’ll put them together into a narrative so its important to have a variety to weave the story together.

 

 

 

 

Step 2: Let us know when you’ve finished making image selections

●  Once you’ve selected your favorite images, send your photographer an email and let us know you’re finished. Please also confirm the size of the album included with your coverage. 10″ x 10″ is the most popular, though some prefer the slightly larger 12″ x 12″ version. The variables that determine the final cost are album dimensions, the amount of images included (# of spreads), and customizations.

 

Once you have finished your selections and emailed your photographer, we’ll begin your custom design. This will take us about two weeks, after which we’ll be in touch with a draft for your review online.

 

Step 3:  choose your album cover and customizations

●  While you’re waiting for the design, take a look at the cover selections and additional options below.

 

Step 4 – Review your design

●  Once we have a design ready, we will email you with an online proof. After you’ve had a chance to look over it carefully, please enter your notes for edits in the comments section at the bottom of each page.

 

Almost done!

 

Step 5 – Confirm/approve the final draft and customizations with your photographer

Cameos

Cameos provide a beautiful window into your story, set directly in the cover. Selecting the right photo and matching color tones with our fabrics really enhances the album ($80).

 

 

 

Debossing

Debossing uniquely complements an album cover making it personal and distinct. You can choose between our tried & true standard fonts or delve into bespoke options, allowing you to choose virtually any font or graphic. You can add custom design embellishments and artwork for further personalization.

 

 

Standard vs. Custom Debossing

Standard Fonts

 

 

Custom Variation Sample – Carolyna Pro

 

 

 

Custom Variation – P22 Zaner

 

 

Custom Variation – Bickham Script Pro 3

 

 

Custom Variation – Adelicia Script Clean

 

 

 

Debossing Styles

Blind debossing is our default debossing style for all cover materials. When covers are blind debossed, it means that no color or foil is added to the stamp. However, some of our Luxe Leathers show a slightly darker tone in areas that are debossed (primarily seen on Latte, Chai & Camel – sometimes noticeable on Vino, Alpine & Fog).

Foil debossing is available exclusively for our new Luxe Linen covers. Color options include gold, silver, and rose gold.
