Here are basic descriptions and differences for the leather-bound “Heirloom” albums and the fabric-bound “Parent” albums. These are two 10×10, 22 page albums based on the same layout. On the left is the standard fabric cover flush mount album with a single image cutout and Black Pearl fabric option. On the right is the premium leather cover flush mount album with a single image cutout and Miami Ink/Suspicion Too Tones cover upgrade. There are approximately 80 different fabric options and over 90 leathers available to pick from, as well as specialty covers involving metallic prints and full-wrap canvas images. The sheer number of available options/combinations make viewing my sample albums and materials swatches in person, as well as mocking up ideas in my special iPad cover design app, a good idea if you are thinking of including an album in addition to your wedding day coverage. All album pages are made from real photographic prints, and a 10×10 album will be made from a 20×10 prints allowing for a seamless 2-page spread! The printing process is the same for both album styles, but the difference lies in the page thickness, with the leather cover albums having thicker, heavier pages that lay flat when open. Close up of the spine and page thickness of the standard fabric cover flush mount album that also shows how the seamless 2-page spread. Close up of the round solid spine option and thicker pages of the premium leather flush mount albums. The thicker pages are made from sturdy masonite and lay flat when open, really allowing the seamless 2-page spreads to shine! Close up of the 2 different album styles with the same page count that illustrates how the difference in page thickness gives the leather cover albums a more “substantial” feel. Close up detail of the Black Pearl fabric option and image cutout. The standard fabric cover albums only have an option for a single image cutout in the cover. Close up detail of the Miami Ink/Suspicion leather Too Tones combination and single image cutout. Leather albums come with a single leather option as part of the base price and either the Too Tones or Three Tones options can combine multiple leathers in various accents (along the spine, horizontal stripe, vertical stripe) for an upgrade fee. Leather albums also include a single image cutout in the cover as part of the base price. The image can be of various sizes, aspect ratios, and locations within the cover, and for an upgrade fee more image cutouts can be added in various layouts. In short, designing a cover for the leather albums can be a dizzying experience due to the sheer number of options, so to reiterate its really important that you view my sample albums and material swatches before ordering. The Leather Heirloom come wrapped in a nice little cover.
