Albums And Frames / January 8, 2019 / Miracle Chase.
With all the different types of photo albums and the variety of themes and patterns, choosing a photo album can be more difficult than expected. The best way to select an album is to look for a design that matches the mood of the pictures. A wedding album will probably not look the same as a vacation album or a baby scrapbook, or even an album from a night of event photography. The cost of albums and materials can also affect this choice. Most of all, a photography album should invoke positive emotions about the experiences inside. If it does this, the album is a wonderful success.
After buying background paper, you should go look for cardstock. If you can afford it, it would be better to buy cardstock in bulk, rather than individually. Cardstock are great for a variety of purposes. Scrapbookers use them for mounting photos or adding some accents to photos, plus they can also be used to add dimension to pages. You can check out a few of my other articles for more ways to use cardstock in scrapbooking.
Types of Leather.Leather is the hide of an animal that has been dried, tanned, processed and dyed. There are numerous types of leather used for making photo albums. The finest leather is full-grain. It is usually tanned and left in a more natural state than other types of leather. Top-grain, or split-grain, has an artificial grain pressed into one side. The other side is fuzzy. Suede comes from the inside piece of split-grain and is fuzzy on both sides. Shiny patent leather is coated with plastic. Napa leather is extremely soft. Naturally, the softest, most supple leathers cost more.
Following many threads on social media and wedding forum web sites, I repeatedly have come across the question of where to go with your photos if you want to make your own wedding photo album. One common advice is to go to blurb, Shutterfly or other photo book makers. Also, it is often noted that many wedding photo album makers, like Queensberry, do only business with photographers. But should you really get a photo book for your wedding photo album? This article is trying to highlight the pros and contras of photo books in comparison to proper wedding photo albums.
