What are the albums
The design of the wedding album is of no small importance; it should be not only beautiful, but also functional, where the photos will be stored for a long time, not faded or remembered. A photo album is not just an original frame of pictures, it is the design of expensive memories of one of the most vivid moments of life.
The most successful variant is the album with small corners of white or transparent color, attached to thick pages with glue or double-sided tape. In this album, you can place pictures of various formats from any angle. The cover can be made of velvet, leather, laminated paper, and even glass or wood. To provide additional safety for photographs, photo album pages can be arranged with translucent parchment paper.
Another type of album is with pockets of different sizes made of transparent film. In such pockets can be placed both photos and cards with comments on pictures. In addition, albums can be provided with paper fields for notes. Variability can be manifested in the design of the cover, the number and color of the pages of the album. Wedding photos can also be placed in special typesetting folders consisting of separate sheets with pockets, which are fastened according to the principle of a folder. You only have to decide on the cover design and pocket size in advance..
Magnetic albums have thick sheets, and photos on them are attached under a transparent film due to a special adhesive composition applied to the page. But, despite the apparent convenience and functionality of such albums, they have their drawbacks. The magnetic film glare and interferes with comfortable viewing of photos, in addition, if you often get pictures out from under the film, then for a long time the magnetic album will not serve you. The substance covering its sheets gradually dries and, over time, the film may move away from the page. As a result, dust accumulates under it, and photos may turn yellow and deteriorate..
The next version of the photo album also deserves attention. Photographs printed by the printing method can also be made out in the form of a book - a book edition allows you to save photo images for a long time. Using special computer programs, digitized images are adjusted to the necessary standards, processed using modern technical means, printed in a printing house, and, finally, pages with photos are intertwined. As a result, your photo album becomes like a bright glossy magazine, the subject of which will be devoted only to the events of your wedding celebration. You can make small copies of such an album and present as a gift to parents or friends.
