Flushmount albums are photographic prints mounted on a thick substrate, so pages are about 1.5 millimeters thick. These are a beautiful way to display your wedding photographs. Amanda and Joe recently ordered their wedding album as a flushmount, and I took a few photos before delivering it. They ordered a matching parent album as well – these are discounted when they’re exact replicas of the big album, and make wonderful gifts.
Another beautiful option is a photobook album. Like the Flushmounts, the pages are printed on beautiful lustre photographic paper. They are mounted back to back, though, rather than with a substrate between them. The result is a slimmer book than the flushmounts, but pages that are still strikingly vibrant. Here are some photographs of one I just printed of Sarah and Jeff’s Evergreen, Colorado wedding:
The books can be covered with a variety of shades of leather or fabric. Photo wrap covers are an option, too.
Pages can lay completely flat, so designs can be panoramic.
Pages are still sturdy and thick, but these wedding albums are a little bit slimmer than the flushmounts.
I love printed photographs. There’s something about leafing through the actual prints that just makes me incredibly happy. I adore these proof boxes – they’re great to put out and are also wonderful for using when you’re choosing images for your album or enlargement. Photos don’t always look exactly the same from computer to computer – mine is calibrated to match my printer, so when you see the prints, you know 100% what you’ll be getting when you are choosing photos to enlarge or add to your album.
Custom designed 4×6 proof boxes with 250 prints start at $350.
