Choose Your Album Style (YOU)
First, decide on what album size and cover finish you want.
Albums start with 30 pages (15 spreads), however, you can add extra pages up to 90 pages (30 spreads) to hold more photos. Decide if you want to include more pages and if so, a rough number of extra pages (spreads) or a budget for us to work around.
Complete The Order Form (YOU)
Fill out our easy online order form here.
At the time of placing the order, we require a 50% deposit for the base album to get the design started.
We accept payments in the form of bank transfers and credit card payments. Credit card payments do attract a 2% surcharge to cover fees.
Send Us Your Images (YOU)
Either send us a link to an online gallery or post a USB to The Coffee Table Book, PO Box 260, Northmead NSW 2152.
Culling Of The Photos (US)
On receipt of your images and payment of the deposit, we narrow your hundreds of images down to the best images to fill the pages of your album.
We then start designing the pages of your album to tell the story of your wedding day.
Proofing (US + YOU)
You are presented with an online album design to proof. This is where you have the opportunity to make changes to the design. Swap/add/remove photos as well as add/remove pages. Included in the price are two rounds of changes.
On approval of the design, we will provide you with an updated invoice to include any charges for additional pages. The balance is due upon approval of the design.
On approval of the design and payment of the balance owing, we edit the images appearing in the album for the best possible print quality and colour representation. The design is printed, then the pages and cover are bound together.
Finished Album (US)
The finished album is delivered to its forever home.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What content can you include in your album?
We can include photos, illustrations/graphics that are provided in a digital format, and text in your wedding album.
Q. Can you use the images supplied by our professional photographer to create a wedding album?
First, check your contract with your photographer that you have permission ( either owns the rights, copyright or joint copyright with your photographer ) that means you can reproduce/print the images for your own personal use, for example in an album. In the case there is no contract, under Copyright law in the case of domestic photography purposes (ie. weddings and portraits), the client/couple automatically retain copyright of the images. Read the FAQs below for more information on ownership of images.
Q. Will I be able to see a draft of my album design before it goes to print?
We will definitely show you a proof of your album design before going to print. There will most likely be some photos that you would like to change. We use an online proofing system so you can easily do it together from the comfort of your home.
Q. What kind of paper do you use in the albums? Is it archival quality?
We print on fine art paper with a matte finish (so you don’t get that annoying shiny effect like the standard photo prints have). The pages are 1mm thick so they are more of a board thickness. They are thicker than the pages in a standard magazine or photobook (our albums are a totally different product but its the easiest way to explain) but are thick enough and sturdy so that the pages won’t tear/fold/crease. The fine art pages are truly beautiful quality and the reason we offer it as our standard album page stock.
