Leather Craftsmen Guest Sign In Album


Some readers might remember The Untraditional Bride photo shoot I did a couple months ago with Mon Amie Bridal at Marvimon in Los Angeles. Once the dust settled, I had some time to focus on getting an album to Mon Amie as a thank you gift…everyone was incredibly awesome and I was thankful for their gowns. Before I drop off the album at the Orange County bridal boutique, I snapped a few photos of the finished product, an 11×14 Split Tone Euro Black Spine/Metallic Fabric Brush Cover

When I was completing the order for the album, I received the Leather Craftsmen Newsletter about their new Companion Albums…and I was all, Whaaaaat?! So basically, any time I make a Print and Bind order for an album bigger than 10×10 (and all my wedding albums are), I’m eligible to order however many Companion Albums I want. Hmmm, this led me to ask my good friend Ira Gershoff if I’d be able to send him my Guest Sign In Albums to print and bind. So, yes. Because LC printed and binded my Mon Amie album, I was able to submit a couple Guest Sign In books I wanted completed.

I just got back the Guest Sign In Albums and I luuuurve them! They’re 8×8 flush mount albums for guests to sign on in lieu of a traditional guest sign in book and it acts as the most perfect memento of the day…

I love the photo on the front and the embossing of their names as it makes for such a personalized book. I feel so stoked because every one of my clients ordered a GSI album for their weddings this year and they’re my favorite things ever! 🙂

If you’d like more info regarding the Companion Albums, feel free to email Ira (ira@leathercraftsmen.com)…as I’m sure he’ll answer you WAY faster than I could! 🙂 FYI, If you’re new to Leather Craftsmen, you can receive a 50% Discount for a print&bind sample album if you use the Jasmine50StudioSample. You can also receive a 15% Discount for a print&bind client album if you use Jasmine15Discount.

Happy Thursday!

    Considering our gsi album GOT LOST in the infinite abyss at our wedding, this is the most fantastical news. Ever. How the heck do I get one of these cool little guys?

    Your discount codes are awesome – I used your showit discount a month or so ago, looooong after you posted it, and client’s are LOVING their slideshows! Business picked up immediately. Some day I’m sure I’ll use the LC discount and I will also some day find a way to pay it forward.

    Hey Jasmine! Love the albums! One question…is it set up for the guests to just sign in the white or blank areas?

    I LOVE that Mon Amie album, it’s gorgeous! Smart thinking 99 because they will show that to everyone! I love doing guest sign in albums, they are always such a hit at the Reception and great publicity too 😉

    What a novel idea. Love the first album. Is it just me or does the bride in the second album look like Anne Hathaway?

    Ok. So my sister and I both agreed that we are getting re-engaged and re-married just so you could shoot our pics. We just haven’t told our hubbies yet.

    Wow sweet, thanks! So many album companies out there, so hard to decide which one to invest in for sample albums. This makes it a little easier.
