Doing A Wedding? - The Right Print-your-own Album For YOU

Choose the right albums

If you are producing an album for your own coffee table – or that of the close relatives then the OPUS PhotoArt range is unquestionably the best.  It uses the award winning Innova digital art archival acid-free fourdrinier paper.  With pigmented inks and kept in normal atmospheric conditions in  a cupboard, it should last indefinitely with minimal colour degradation. You have a choice of sizes and paper textures.

2 albums

For size you can have A4 (the most popular), A3, 12x12in (30x30cm) and 8x8in (20x20cm).

For texture there is a choice of:

  • Soft texture natural white – for a soft ‘arty’ feel
  • Smooth cotton high white – for brilliance and clarity 

There is no ‘best’ – it is a question of taste.  I prefer the textured paper; my wife prefers the high white.  They cost the same.

 If you want to produce a number of albums – e.g. for all the guests – then the less expensive, but quite serviceable OPUSalbums.com Print&Bind using high quality photo-glossy paper is recommended - or you can choose your own paper and have a permanent looking book with the Pics Book Jr. - based on the Unibind MyBook.  All you need is a heavy duty stapler. 

Hahnemuehle photo album

 If you want the top quality leather bound albums then an external service is our recommendation.  (If you use dg Foto Art many suppliers accept this format – we are forging relations with them)  There is one print-your-own album available with leather covers and protection sheets between each page.  This is the Hahemuehle Leather Luxury Photo Album - available in A4, A3 and 12x12"(30x30cm).  The paper is the 276gsm Photo Rag Duo - similar to Innova's smooth cotton high white, but a bit heavier.

Finally if you need to print Photobooks regualrly especially if they lend themselves to permanent binding then you should invest in a thermal binding machine.  Unibind with its steel strip spine, and its unparallelled range of covers is clearly the winner and we are proud to be one of thier distribution parnters.  We call the range - binding machines, covers, paper and software, the Pics Book range.  Read more about it .

Some might say "Do I need an album at all?"  Well you can print on ordinary photo-glossy paper and put in a binder.  You can have ordinary

6x4”(15x10cm) prints and put them in a album with pockets.  We believe our solutions are the most satisfying.
