Choosing Your Album Cover | Tuesday Tips

If you follow along with the blog, or have happened upon our “For the Bride” section, you’ll find many posts with wedding albums! Most of our couples choose to include a wedding album in their collection. It is such a beautiful way to retell the story of their wedding for years to come. Having a beautifully bound book with even more beautiful images to page through is such a treat! When friends and family visit, they get to experience your wedding all over : )

If you need a refresher on the Album Ordering Process, definitely check out that blog. Today we’re talking all about cover options!

One of the hardest decisions that comes along with the album process is selecting not only the cover color, but also the type of cover! We’ve selected an album company that has such a beautiful selection of leathers and linens for the cover, but also a great selection of different cover types.
The first decision to make, is to decide what type of album cover fits your style best! There are three main cover types that come in the base album.

Seamless Leather or Linen Cover

The seamless leather or linen cover is the normal and most selected cover type. It is simply an album that has a solid cover made up of your leather or linen selection. Many of our couples choose the debossing upgrade, which allows for their names and wedding date to also appear on the seamless cover!

Cameo Leather or Linen Cover

The cameo leather or linen cover is the album cover with a “window” for an image. This is our second most popular album cover selection. With the cameo, there are actually 4 “window” designs to choose from, each of which let you personalize the album even further! The four designs to choose from are the Pano, Rectangle, Square or 3 Square Stack. The cameo album here chose the rectangle option.

Custom Image Cover

The custom image cover is exactly what it sounds like! An image wraps around the entire cover in place of the leather or linen. We had one couple choose this last year and it was absolutely gorgeous. They opted for the canvas texture and I loved the way it turned out! With the custom image cover, we can add text to the file before upload so that in addition to the image cover, the names and date can appear on the cover as well!
The second decision to make when deciding on a cover, is what color leather or linen! We offer 10 standard leather, 4 distressed leather, 5 pearlescent leather, 4 metallic leather and 15 linen options. Needless to say, this decision is a hard one! I usually suggest, when deciding on a cover, to think about either matching your wedding colors, or thinking about what will match the decor in your house!

On top of the included options, we also offer a few upgrades to covers. I mentioned the Debossing upgrade earlier, and that is like a stamp on the cover that adds text of your choosing to the cover! We’ve also had a few couples choose an Etched Leather upgrade, which I just love! It adds a little extra interest to the cover and there are 10 different etched leather designs to choose from!
