Leather Craftsmen Albums


It’s Monday morning and I’m still sick. Oh, I didn’t mention I was sick? Well, I AM. Very. And I’ve been taking almost every natural remedy known to mankind and if another person tells me to gargle with garlic cloves and apple vinegar–so help me lord–I will cough on him. Clovey breath and all. I actually resorted to swallowing green cough medicine. Should I repeat that last part?! GREEN.

In more exciting news, I received a pretty hefty delivery of Leather Craftsmen albums…woohoo! It’s not unusual for me to have phone conversations with prospective clients who aren’t local and in light of an upcoming conversation (Hi Giselle!), I decided to update my online photos. Like always, I love when my clients receive their albums, as there’s nothing better than an album as their first heirloom. I’ve been using Leather Craftsmen since the inception of my business and I can’t thank them enough for always taking such great care of my clients.

It just so happens that all the albums ordered were black, but I also happen to think it’s classic…here are 8×10, 12×12, and 11×14 wedding albums…

A sample spread from Michele and Emin’s 8×10 wedding album…

The 11×14 and the 12×12 albums are basically the same, but some clients like the vertical style, and others prefer the square…

Here are a couple 12×12 sample spreads from Amy and Will’s wedding album…

Many thanks to Amy at Albumesque for doing such a great job with the designs…

Here is Monique and Mike’s 8×8 Guest Sign In album…to see more Engagement and Guest Sign In albums, I also blogged about it HERE.

I’m so, so excited for the following little album…it’s actually a 5×5 mini album! It’s uber cute! I custom ordered it from Leather Craftsmen because Erica wanted an extra small album. Her fiance travels a bit, and she wanted to make sure he could just tuck the album anywhere and easily jet. I love the way it came out!

Here you can see the size difference between the 8×8 engagement album, and the 5×5 boudoir album…and, of course, the boxes. I just love the boxes with my logo embossed on the side…it’s the small things that count…

And, like always, if you’re new to Leather Craftsmen, you can receive a 50% Discount for your first print&bind sample album if you use the Jasmine50StudioSample. Also, if you’re a new client, you can also receive a 15% Discount for your first print&bind client album if you use Jasmine15Discount. For further questions, you can always contact my good friend Ira Gershoff…he’s amazing at walking you through the album process! ira@leathercraftsmen.com

Happy Monday!

    I hope you feel better! There’s nothing worse than being sick in the summertime.
    The albums are gorgeous!
    Also wanted to say I’ve been reading through a lot of your old posts and they’re incredibly helpful…thank you for sharing your secrets with all of us! I think it’s a great example of how far a little (um okay, a LOT obviously) of hard work can take a girl in such a short time!

    Jasmine, do those boxes with your logo on them come from Leather Craftsmen or do you get them separately? If you do get them some where else, where do you get them?

    @Eric: Leather Craftsmen places my logo on the box for me! 🙂 @Mel: Yes, I’ve always outsourced my album design to Albumesque from the beginning…I love Amy! 🙂

    Totally in love with Leather Crafstman…but SO MANY OPTIONS! I wish I could just see and touch them all right in front of my face to decide what to offer. Do you use the standard black pages or the thin white/black? Also the 3500 or 300 hingeless?

    I love your simple, elegant taste-it shows well in your albums that you create. Some people add a lot of extra stuff as far as graphics and whatnot go, but I like your albums a lot. They are classic, and timeless.

    Beautiful albums. And great photographs in them as well.

    Worth for the level of photographs in side 🙂

    Hey by the way Scott Kelby in his Thursday post (if am not wrong) has mentioned his readers to view your work.

    Jasmine I’ve been following you on Creative Live and have loved every minute. You may have already addressed this but when do you resize your images for the Album. Just wondering if you do this for your gallery on Pixieset as well since clients can direct order. Thanks so much for your time and knowledge and your willingness to share.
