We have been ordering and receiving many albums over the past month and while the final count on our holiday orders isn’t in just yet I can say with certainty that its record breaking! For those who have been patiently waiting for their design we thank you for hanging in there and for those who are still mulling over the choices, check these out…
We’re a little biased, Queensberry Duo albums are our favorite of the option thus far. Classic matted pages highlight key photos and portraits while flush mount pages combine images in a way that tells a story while maximizing space. We love it when our photos can be big and bold across a layout.
We also love the variety of cover options available through Queensberry. Check out Sally Ann & Clint’s wedding album: their large format aluminum bound album fits their style while the 9×9 parents copy is a little more traditional.
Sally Ann & Clint chose to include wing and flip pages into their design, adding an interesting constructional element. The closed flip of the procession opens into a panorama of the ceremony and I love how it turned out, I included a detail of the wing too:
Taking photos of the actual album helps to demonstrate some of the details you can’t see in the preview layouts. Sally Ann & Clint chose ivory mats with an ivory page: the page being the paper the photo is mounted to once its been trimmed just enough to allow the color of the paper to peek out from underneath the window mat. By choosing the same color between the matt and the page, a depth effect is created. Here are a few more snapshots from the design layout:
Liz & Greg chose the same ivory mats and pages but went for a 14×10 book for a more panoramic feel. Like SA&C, they went for a non-traditional cover and chose sand leather, matching the groom/smen’s khaki suits. They also chose a quarter photo front cover which turned out really beautiful:
I love the design of Liz & Greg’s album, its one of my favorites. They added a couple pages just to make sure that there was a good representation of both family portraits and the day’s events. Check out some details and a few snapshots from the layout:
Stay tuned because there have lots more lovely albums to share!
