Digital photos are great. They are fast, flexible and really easy to share with family and friends via social media but there still remains something really special about seeing your amazing wedding photos printed in a physical and tangible form.
I try to keep my wedding albums as simple as I can and I only work with one supplier (Folio Albums). Each wedding album is individually designed and crafted using genuine leathers, archival paper and HD printed techniques. There are various sizes and customisations that you can make for each album but the starting point is to decide between a 'Fine Art' Book or a 'Matted album'...
Fine Art Book
The Fine Art Book is presented with your images printed directly on to the page. They have an almost invisible crease which gives us the ability to bleed images off the page and so this format allows for really versatile designs. This crease allows for unrestricted layout designs to showcase your images.
As the Fine Art Book allows for a more flexible design, a typical book with 20 spreads (40 pages) will include an average of 80 images.
All Fine Art Books are packaged by hand and are presented in a natural cotton bag within a kraft cardboard box.
The Matted Album is assembled using a white mat cut to reveal images underneath. These albums have thicker, heavyweight pages; a classic style with a contemporary finish.
The matted Album lays flat but unlike the Fine Art Book your images can not go across the crease. It has a classic feel with a contemporary finish.
As the Matted Album has a more classic design style, a typical book with 20 spreads (40 pages) will include an average of 70 images.
The 6x6" mini-duplicate books are a direct copy of your larger album and are the perfect gift for family and friends.
They are made in an identical way to the Fine Art Books with the same almost invisible crease and archival quality materials. Please note that the mini duplicates of larger Matted albums are produced as a Fine Art Book and do not have the bevelled mats. These are available in 8 cover choices made from 100% cotton.
Please note that these can only be ordered alongside a larger album.
