My albums are designed by myself and bound and printed by Vision Art in the US. I like my albums simple and beautiful. These are the best books I have found.
I currently offer three types of album covers: Printed, Leather & Linen. The leather and linen covers can be embossed with a design and colour of your choice.
For the printed covers, an image must be chosen that will wrap from the front cover to the back cover. Any image can be chosen: an abstract image (a landscape, flowers, a graphic design etc), or a portrait. If a portrait is chosen, it’s best to pick an image that has the subjects at the edge of the frame. This is because only half the image is on the front cover: the rest wraps around to the back. The lettering will appear on the spine.
Cafe Leather (smooth and hard-wearing)
Rustic Leather (soft & supple – additional $120)
Linen (Greys & Blacks)
Full Grain Leather, Rustic
Leather and Linen albums can be embossed. These are foiled stamps that are pressed into the surface of the cover. Most couples opt to have their names embossed in the cover, but there are no rules to what sort of writing or design can be imprinted.
There are a range of embossing options: black, brown, copper, cranberry, gold, red matte, rose gold, royal blue, silver, white.
