Traditional bespoke built matted albums

Matted Albums

The albums that I use are bespoke designed albums custom bound specifically to your selection of images from your wedding.

The photographs sit under board mats. The albums have a traditional feel but also a contemporary edge. Each album is very customisable with a large selection of different album covers, mats and designs making each album completely unique.

The design of a matted album is a bit more structured than a coffee table book album. 

Standard Album

The standard album sizes I offer are the 12x12in or 14x11in. This includes the 1st 100 images (extra images are £5 each); full bespoke design with as many revisions as you need; choice of Linens or Leather like vinyl (option upgrade to Natural Leather), standard presentation box and Parcel Force delivery to anywhere in the UK.

You can upgrade to the larger 14x14in or 16x12in(£150). You can also add blind or foil embossing (depending on which album cover you choose).

BESPOKE ALBUMS

I try to make the album options as simple as possible without over-complicating things with too many options. The standard album options are what I have found over the years that couples prefer. However, if you have a specific idea in mind or would like something a little different, please let me know and we can discuss options.

GETTING STARTED

To get the process of your album design started I will need from you:

  • Your choice of album size : 14x10in or 12x12in
  • Your selection of images

When it comes to choosing your selection of images, don’t feel you have to choose exactly the amount you feel you need. You may decide to add or remove images when you see the initial design. I would suggest getting in all your favourite images and the ones you feel best represent the day. You have as many revisions as you need so there’s no pressure to get it right first time!

At some point during the process, I will also need:

  • Your choice of album cover
  • Any extras you may want (embossing, extra images etc)

I can get the process started with just your selection of images and size of album. We wont be able to order the album until you have decided on all the options.

STRUGGLING TO CHOOSE IMAGES?

If choosing your images for your album is proving to be a stumbling block, I’d be happy to help. You can either give me your ‘must have’ images (10 or 20 images) and I’ll choose the rest for you. Equally I can choose all the images for you.

PLEASE NOTE : CHRISTMAS CUT-OFF DATE

If you need your album for Christmas, the cut-off date is 15th November. You need to have your album ordered and any extras paid for by that date to guarantee Christmas delivery.

Once your album is ordered, no more changes can be made.

TIMELINES

Once I have both your selection of images and size of album, I can start the design process. The initial design will take me about 7-10 days (depending on the time of year). I will post this design online for you to view and send me through any changes you may want. These changes usually take 2-3 days.

When you have confirmed all your changes, made all your album choices and paid for any extras, we can order your album. Once ordered, it will take anywhere between 4-6 weeks to be printed, bound and couriered out to you.

ORDERING

When you are ready, let me know and we can start the process. I just need the size of album and choice of images. If you already have an album included in your photography package or have paid for an album, I will start the album design process straight away. If you are ordering an album, there is a £150 deposit to be paid. I will send you an invoice for this and once it's paid, I will start the process of designing the album. The balance and any extras must be paid for in full before the final album is ordered.

CHRISTMAS DEADLINE

If you would like your album for Christmas, it has to be ordered no later 15th November for guaranteed delivery. This is the busiest time of the year for album companies and rarely have any flexibility for albums ordered after this date. If needed, we can ask ...but it's very unlikely!

DESIGN

Starting the process of choosing images for your design can feel a little daunting. You don't have choose the precise amount of images to start with as you may add/remove images as you make changes. You will have a much better idea of what works as the process goes on. You can change the images to/from colour or black and white to fit the design.

If you would like help choosing images or like feedback on images you have chosen, I am more than happy to help.

EMBOSSING

You can emboss you names, wedding date and/or venue on the front cover. You have a choice of two fonts (Gill Sans or Times Roman) with 20 characters per line and up to two lines. Whether you can have blind-debossing or gold/silver foil debossing will depend on what kind of album cover you have.
