It’s been AGES since I’ve shared a client’s wedding album… and that isn’t because I haven’t been making them! In fact, I rearranged my Collections before my 2018 wedding season began booking, creating an option that allowed almost every single client to receive an album after the big day. This meant 90% of my brides and grooms have had a tangible product in their Collection which I absolutely love. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about sharing your images across social media, but I also believe your images need to live off your computer, as well! There is just something about holding your images and seeing them hung across your walls that feels so right.
So when my amazing and incredible album company introduced silk album cover options in early 2018 as well, I shared them with my clients right away. While I design the album draft, my clients get full control over fabric type, color, cover image, text, and even final layout, so I wanted to them to know all the options available. Orders for these have been rolling in (I even got one myself for personal images!) and since I’ve shared tons of the leather and linen options in the past, I figured it was time to show you what the silk cover looks like as well! Just like the leather and linen, these are still professional, layflat albums that have super thick pages unlike anything I’ve ever seen on the consumer market. And you absolutely still get an inset cover photos and text embossing on underneath.
One big difference however, is the addition of foil color choices for the cover text embossing. You can still blind emboss (no color, just imprinted into the fabric), but now can also choose from silver, gold, or black which can really add a bit of a pop to certain colors (like on the ivory below). These albums still come with the traditional black, leather case for protective storage, but you can also upgrade to a matching silk case if you prefer!
Take a look at this gorgeous album below! I’ve even included a fun animated photo at the end so you can “page” through the entire album from beginning to end to see how we tell the full story of your big day — enjoy!
