ALBUM DESIGN OPTIONS

THERE’S NOTHING LIKE THE REALNESS OF A BOOK

There is no story that cannot be told nor has stood the test of time better, than those bound in an actual page turning book!  And there is no greater way to share the most profound of all love stories, your love story, than with a beautifully designed and crafted album of your wedding day, filled with memories and details you can pore over in your own time.

 

Don’t get me wrong, I love the wedding films we make for our couples – you’re swept away in a mere five or ten minutes into your day, all the memories, all the feels, laughter, tears.  But when you want to take your time, look closely at small details you might have missed, search the images for that special relative or friend, then your photo album can take you there.

 

FUTURE-PROOFING YOUR WEDDING DAY FOR GENERATIONS

You’re never bound by the battery life, the software updates, the file types, the storage limits.

 

Below, you’ll find more details on the options and choices available to you.  As you know, your screen can affect the appearance of these colours and materials.  If you are very particular about colour and texture selection, we recommend completing the appointment request form below meet with us to view the physical swatches and samples for an accurate representation of what you’ll receive.

Cover Materials

If you are choosing a larger sized album (30 x 30cm and up) it is recommended to choose a Buckram, Micro or Genuine Leather.  Genuine leather is best able to support the weight of extra pages.

MICRO LEATHERS

Micro (Faux) leathers are amongst our most popular cover materials — beautiful textures, lovely colours, superb quality and durability.

VINTAGE LEATHERS

Genuine leathers in evocative, earthy colours with natural markings.

CONTEMPORARY LEATHERS

Genuine leathers with a luxurious, embossed suede finish.

CLASSIC LEATHERS

Beautiful genuine leather hides from one of Europe’s leading suppliers.

COATED LINENS

Coated Linens are strong and colourful with a subtle yet distinctive linen feel. Their top coating is dirt and water repellent which makes them more durable, perfect for photo boxes and albums that will experience a lot of handling.

NATURAL LINENS

Their natural coarse structure make these linens particularly suitable for larger-sized books and albums. Flaxfibres in these materials are certified under the Masters of Linen standard which means that the fibres are 100% EU grown and processed. All flax under this regulation is sustainably grown — respecting the environment and producing high quality fibres.

DUO-TONED LINENS

Our uncoated Duo-Toned Linens are FSC certified woven cotton fabrics with a matte natural finish. Offering a distinguished yet subtle two-tone effect.

LIBRARY BUCKRAMS

Buckrams have been the choice of bookbinders, publishers and libraries for many generations. They offer affordable beauty, quality and durability.

Cover Styles

STANDARD EMBOSSING

The most popular of cover style. Select from a range of fonts and supply the text you want embossed, typically names and dates.

Included in Album price

CUSTOM EMBOSSING

You may prefer to supply your own artwork for us to emboss such as a monogram or logo, or a font that’s not available in the standard range.

Price dependant on size

WRAP-AROUND

Wrap-around covers remind me of treasured books from long ago.  The perfect heirloom piece.

$190

Not available in Micro Leather
EMBOSSING + TITLE PAGE FONTS

There is a limited range of eight standard fonts to choose from to emboss your album cover.  The same selection of fonts can be chosen for your translucent title page.  If these aren’t what you’re after or you need more text or want to include a logo or graphic, you can supply your own custom artwork to have a die block custom made for you. The additional cost depends on the size.

EMBOSSING FOILS

We offer seven different foil colours. Rose Gold, Gold, Silver, Steel, Black, White, and Copper.  You can also opt to have blind embossing, which has no foil.

Paper Stock

SILVER HALIDE LUSTRE

Premier Lustre paper produces accurate skin tones, with a neutral tone scale from highlights to shadows.  Lustre offers bold rich blacks, clean whites and an increased colour gamut for stronger, brighter, more vibrant colours.

Not available for photobooks.
Not available for photobooks.
TINTORETTO

Tintoretto is a felt-marked art stock with a distinct watercolour texture on both surfaces. Tintoretto has a matte finish, is of exceptional quality and, like our other offset stocks, specifically formulated for our digital-offset press.

MATTE

Matte has a deep matte finish like Tintoretto, the difference being that the surface is only softly textured, almost smooth. Colours are appealingly subdued, with somewhat less contrast than true photographic prints.

SATIN

Satin has a smooth surface with a slight sheen and excellent colour resolution. Satin has some features which are very similar to those of glossy photo paper but it balances a lower reflective quality against good saturation and glorious detail.

To protect during delivery and storage, all albums, photobooks and copy albums are delivered inside Queensberry’s standard soft suede bag.
