I still love the wedding album company I was using previously, and I’ll continue to use that company for my individual prints and canvases, but I thought it was time for a refresh to my album offerings — so here they are! TJP’s new custom heirloom wedding albums! There are many fabulous options to choose from with these albums when it comes to the cover, personalization, page thickness, spread quantities, and even storage options!
Below are the basic covers that all TJP’s clients will get with their heirloom albums. They include care instructions and this beautiful canvas cover that will keep your albums dust free when you don’t have them out on display. Other options include: a white presentation box, a craftsman light wood box, and a walnut wood box (presentation boxes are an additional cost and are available upon request–boxes are not pictured in this post).
There are four different sizes that our new heirloom albums come in — 12 inch, 10 inch, 8 inch, and 4 inch. The three sizes shown below are: 10″, 8″ and 4″. Isn’t the 4″ adorable!?
There are so many amazing cover materials & colors to choose from with our new heirloom albums! First, you select your material–leather , distressed leather, Japanese silk linens, fine linens or standard linen. Next, you select your color–I have swatches for you to peek through on this step so you can see the colors in person!
Once you’ve chosen your cover material and color, you can then personalize the cover by adding a cameo window, and/or debossing or engraving up to 2 lines of text on your cover. Gold, Rose Gold, Silver and Clear are the colors available for debossing and engraving.
The album shown below is a 10 inch heirloom album with distressed leather in the color “Pelle”. It has a cameo window with clear debossing.
I’m a huge fan of thicker pages because they feel like they’ll stand the test of time (and children turning them). Below is an image of the thicker album pages that are available. If you’re a fan of the thinner pages that make your album feel more like a stylish magazine, that’s available as well!
Engagement Guest Books
The 8 inch heirloom albums make for the perfect engagement guest book! The spreads can be designed with extra white space around the images to give writing space to your guests at your wedding.
The album below is an 8 inch heirloom album — the cover is navy standard linen with gold engraving.
4 Inch Mini Albums
These little guys are the perfect gift for parents! Moms especially love them because they can carry them around in their purse to show off images to their family and friends wherever they are. Plus they also come with a little canvas cover to protect from dust, and getting brushed against items inside mom’s purse.
