Premium albums are hand made here in the US and they are works of art. Premium albums provide more fonts options (that are more elegant, in my opinion). Custom font is also available. You have more control of where the text is placed on the cover. There is also a lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects. These take 8-10 weeks to be made once sent to print.
Signature albums are perfect if you want an heirloom but you want to make a smaller investment. The color is beautiful, and the albums are quality, however, the biggest difference comes down to the font on the cover. The cover font must be in the center of the album, and many of the provided fonts aren't as elevated (in my opinion). These albums take 2-3 weeks to be made once sent to print.
Both album options have beautiful color quality and lay-flat pages. Both options have linen or leather cover options.
Once you've decided that you would like an album, I request a $300 deposit to start the design process. If you would like to send me a list of your favorite images in your online gallery, you can, but I know it can be a daunting task, so I'm happy to make the first draft with my own favorites. You can estimate 4-5 images per spread, so a 15 spread album will have about 60-75 images.
Each album comes with three complimentary rounds of revisions. I use an online revision software so you can easily leave me comments and edits. The design process typically takes 2-3 months, but can be done much faster if you provide feedback quickly between drafts.
One the draft is approved, I send it off to be printed. Easy as that!
Exit signs from the reception, a microphone on the lapel of an officiant, a wrinkle in the linen. I want these images that you're going to cherish forever to be perfect.
