Your album tells the unique story of your day. This isn't something to be rushed so we customize the layout and design for each client. After reading through each step of the process, fill out the questionnaire at the bottom of the page and click "Submit"
1. Cover Style
You have 3 options: full image wrap, fabric/leather wrap and fusion (our personal favorite)
2. Swatch Selection
*Click on the images to zoom into each swatch*
3. Paper Type
Smooth Matte (recommended) - premium bright white color, classic matte finish
Linen - has a subtle embossed linen pattern
Stipple - Vivid color reproduction, adds depth to images
4. Page Substrate
You can choose either black or white for the substrate which is sandwiched in the middle of each page to give the album those sturdy board pages.
5. Cover Image
The choice is totally up to you, however there are some layout constraints if you are thinking about a fusion cover style. The image aspect ratio is 4:5 (almost a square crop). Keep that in mind when selecting the photo for the fusion style and try to pick one that is not too zoomed in or body parts may get cropped. Below are examples which worked well.
6. Photo Selection (the fun/Hard part)
Once you are ready to make your selections, go to the special link provided in the same email as this questionnaire. At the bottom left corner of the large preview, there is an option to "Favorite" each photo you would like to be included in the album. Once you have made your selections, shoot us an email to let us know you're done!
There is no set number of photos that can go in the album, it all depends on the design! That being said, the average is about 100-120 in the 10x10 album and 125-150 in the 12x12. If you're having trouble deciding, you can select your "must have" photos throughout the day and letting us fill in the gaps with what makes sense for the layout and timeline or even allow us to select all the photos.
After you submit the questionnaire, you will receive a PDF proof via email. To revise the design, simply say "move image bride-groom-39 to page 4 " or "make bride-groom-426 a full page spread on page 16". We include two revision rounds free of charge with additional revisions billed at an hourly rate of $90/hr. Please try to include all changes in the first email to prevent too much back-and-forth.
It takes 5-10 business days to print an album and an additonal 3 business days to ship. During the holidays, these times are often the longest estimates. Once we receive the package, we inspect it for quality, box it up and send it over to your home. Albums are a big investment and we want to make sure everything is up to the highest standard! Our lab guarantees quality so if you find a printing error that we missed, you will receive another copy free of charge.
If you request additonal copies, it is at a 25% discount to the orginal album's cost, as long as the design is relatively the same. We include a few swapped photos of family at no extra charge. Parent albums make a great gift!
