Over the last few weeks I have been collaborating with Sam and Emma at Illustries on a new product to add to their gorgeous range of bespoke books. So it's great to be able to reveal a few of the pages from the soon to be released range aimed squarely at wedding photographers who want to offer their clients something new and exciting.
The concept of an Illustry is pretty simple. It's an optimum quality wedding album, but with all the essential, personal facts from the wedding day designed to dovetail with the images. The speeches, menu, a fun relationship 'timeline', etc.. The end result is unique giving a very personal feel of wedding day.
The new product differs from the current range because rather than going to the girls direct, couples work with the photographer on the content.
Illustries will, as usual, ultimately handle the printing, but at all times the clients deal with their photographer on proofing, changes, etc.. The spec will be 60page, 33x28cm case-bound books designed to incorporate around 90 images. There will be a choice of heavy coated matt paper or luxurious uncoated stock. Samples will be available very soon and I can't wait to include them in my own range of books. Because I know the feel and quality of the existing range, I have no doubt the photographer's range will be a hit with clients who seek that extra personal touch.
In addition, there are some amazing other products available, from tote bags to guests books to tea towels. All terrific ideas which, for me, elevate Sam and Emma's designs and create something truly different...
