How is the Wedding Magazine different to a traditional wedding album?
The Wedding Magazine is a softcover premium photo book essentially, similar to a magazine you would find in a newsagent. Wedding Albums differ in that they have a thick hardcover and the pages are also a thicker paper stock as well as being handmade, therefore a lot more labour intensive to produce.
What sizes are the Wedding Magazines available in?
The Wedding Magazine is available in one size — A4 Vertical (210mm x 297mm or 8.25″ x 12″).
The magazines are available in 100 page, 200 page and 300 page editions.
How many pages do the Wedding Magazines have?
Choose from either a 100 page, 200 page or 300 page magazine. The 100 page is perfect for engagement sessions, elopements and intimate weddings. Whereas the 200 & 300 page magazines are perfect for filling with hundreds of your big wedding day moments.
How many photos can be used in the Wedding Magazine?
The number of photos comes down to a few things. Things like how many pages are dedicated to text and how many photos are used as full-page images or across the double-page spread. Here is a general guide to estimate how many photos the Wedding Magazine can hold:
100 page Love Story Magazine : 100-150 photos
200 page Love Story Magazine : 200-450 photos
300 page Love Story Magazine : 300-600 photos
Can we include words in the Wedding Magazine?
Absolutely Yes! The Wedding Magazines are custom designed for each couple and can include photos and words telling the full wedding day story. Anything from vows, ceremony readings, meaningful poems and song lyrics, to quotes as well as the guest list, the names of your wedding party and supplier mentions are a beautiful way to personalise your magazine.
We are having trouble selecting our favourite photos?
No problem! We prefer to receive the full photo collection as that gives us more creative freedom to tell your story. We include a photo curation service as part of the wedding magazine purchase, where we will select the best images to use in the first draft of the design. From there you have the opportunity to review the design and swap photos to ensure all your favourites make it to print.
What quality/size do my photos need to be?
Your wedding photographer will provide you with a set of high-resolution .jpg images suitable for printing, these are the photos we need to create your wedding magazine. Typically print-quality photos are 300dpi and at least 1MB or larger in size — the bigger the better.
How do we send you our photos?
Photos can be supplied by either sending us a link to your online photo gallery ie. Dropbox, Google Drive or the client gallery provided by your photographer. Alternatively you can post us a USB containing the photos to The Coffee Table Book, PO Box 260, Northmead NSW 2152, Australia.
Do we get to review the design before going to print?
Absolutely Yes! We will provide you with a first draft to review. This is where you have the opportunity to make changes. We won’t goto print until you are 100% happy with the design.
Can I design my own magazine?
No. We are a full service design studio meaning we will curate your photos, design the layouts, print and deliver the bound magazine.
Can we order extra copies for our parents?
Yes! We highly encourage sharing copies of your magazine with your family and keeping an extra copy or two for yourselves for safekeeping. The Wedding Magazine makes an awesome Christmas gift. We have already incorporated pricing for multiple copy purchases in our online shop.
Is there a discount for ordering more than 1 copy?
What is the shelf life of the Wedding Magazine and how long are they expected to last?
The guarantee for our Wedding Magazines only extends to them being delivered in good condition. Simply because after that we have no control on how they are handled. Please keep in mind these are a premium photo book and perform like any magazine you would buy in a newsagent, therefore, dog ears from turning pages is a characteristic of the Wedding Magazine and something we feel reflects the magazine has been enjoyed. The Wedding Magazines are packaged in a box for shipping and can be continued to be stored in the box. We suggest ordering a spare or two so that way one can be left on your coffee table while the spare/s are stored in the box for safekeeping.
Can we print extra copies down the track?
