Leather Craftsmen Guest Sign In Album

Some readers might remember The Untraditional Bride photo shoot I did a couple months ago with Mon Amie Bridal at Marvimon in Los Angeles. Once the dust settled, I had some time to focus on getting an album to Mon Amie as a thank you gift...everyone was incredibly awesome and I was thankful for their gowns. Before I drop off the album at the Orange County bridal boutique, I snapped a few photos of the finished product, an 11x14 Split Tone Euro Black Spine/Metallic Fabric Brush Cover






When I was completing the order for the album, I received the Leather Craftsmen Newsletter about their new Companion Albums...and I was all, Whaaaaat?! So basically, any time I make a Print and Bind order for an album bigger than 10x10 (and all my wedding albums are), I'm eligible to order however many Companion Albums I want. Hmmm, this led me to ask my good friend Ira Gershoff if I'd be able to send him my Guest Sign In Albums to print and bind. So, yes. Because LC printed and binded my Mon Amie album, I was able to submit a couple Guest Sign In books I wanted completed.

I just got back the Guest Sign In Albums and I luuuurve them! They're 8x8 flush mount albums for guests to sign on in lieu of a traditional guest sign in book and it acts as the most perfect memento of the day...

This is Marisa and Robert's GSI Album from their engagement session...










This is Heather and Marc's GSI Album from their engagement session...






I love the photo on the front and the embossing of their names as it makes for such a personalized book. I feel so stoked because every one of my clients ordered a GSI album for their weddings this year and they're my favorite things ever! :)

If you'd like more info regarding the Companion Albums, feel free to email Ira (ira@leathercraftsmen.com)...as I'm sure he'll answer you WAY faster than I could! :) FYI, If you're new to Leather Craftsmen, you can receive a 50% Discount for a print&bind sample album if you use the Jasmine50StudioSample. You can also receive a 15% Discount for a print&bind client album if you use Jasmine15Discount.

Happy Thursday!
