Quick Pro Tip from our designers:
Depending upon the number of pages you want in your wedding album you need to make the final cut of images to send us between 40- 150 images. Good wedding album design calls for no more than 5-6 images per spread, however this is an average and some spreads will have more or less. Please note that boudoir books and guest books are typically 1-3 images per spread so less images can be sent. Images are uploaded via our design order form. When submitting your images to us for wedding albums, please use the following guideline.
We keep it simple!
Design fee is $5.00 per spread or $2.50 per page. Minimum design quantity is 10 spreads/20 pages. Maximum page design is 40 spreads/80 pages. Design fee is paid up front and you are given unlimited revisions until you are 100% happy with your layout.
Photoshop services for image touch up’s or special design services is available for $40.00 per hour. Our designer will work with you to come up with an estimate if needed and this will be billed separately.

Just incase you were wondering…
How Do I Get Started?
You need to first decide on the style and size of the album you want. You also need to choose the cove type and or color. When we design your album in the software, it is imperative that you make this decision up front as we cannot change the layout without having to start all over again. Most albums we custom design for are our higher end Layflat Albums or Flush Mount Albums. Once you have made this choice then fill out the Custom Design Form and submit your $$50.00 deposit to get started. The deposit will cover the first 10 spreads If you should require additional spreads, you will be invoiced for the additional pages/spreads after the approval of your layout. We work one on one with you until your are 100% happy with the layout
How Do I Send My Images?
One you submit your design form and pay your deposit your design consultant will be in touch with you within 24 hours via email or phone if you prefer. At this time, she will share a link to a DROPBOX folder which can you upload your images to. You can also send your images via www.wetransfer.com to her direct email address which she will share with you at that time.
How Many Images Should I Send?
A good rule of thumb is to consider your budget and how much you would want to spend on your album. Good album design calls for no more than 3-5 image on a 2 page spread. Of course some pages may have more or less.
Please consider the following estimates:
20 page / 10 spread album 10-30 images
26 page /13 spread album 30-50 images
30 page / 15 spread album 50-80 images
36 page / 18 spread album 80-100 images
40 page / 20 spread album 100–120 images
50 page / 25 spread album 120-140 images
60 page / 30 spread album 140-160 images
70 page / 35 spread album 160-180 images
80 page / 40 spread album 180-200 images
Do You Guarantee that I Will Love My Design?
Absolutely! We work one on one with you until you are 100% happy with the layout of your album. You have unlimited design change but we do ask that you make your final revisions within 30 days.
How Long Will it Take to Design My Album?
Your personal design assistant can typically turn around your design in the following amount of business days:
Wedding Albums 5-7 days
Boudoir Books 1-3 days
Guest Books – 1-3 days
Do You Offer PDF Print Ready Design Files?
The PDF print ready files we create are for books to be printed in the My Bridal Pix software only.
Are My Boudoir Photos Safe?
We only use female book designers. Your login is password protected, so only you and your designer will have access to your images on the software. The server in which the images are held is military grade for your security and image protection. Images are given a alpha-numerica code thats tied to a project ID so your images are in no way associated with your name or email address on the server. We understand the sensitive nature of boudoir images and we make every effort to keep your images private during production. We also try to use a all women team at all times to process the books and a black sheet of paper will follow your book through the production line so that it is kept under cover during production. We like to think we do a pretty good job of keeping your boudoir book “under cover” during the printing process.
All boudoir images shown on our website are stock photography and NOT customer images. We would never share customer boudoir images unless we were given the permission to do so with a model release form. Your images are safe with us!
What is the Book Turnaround Time?
Please allow 5 business days from the date we receive your order to turn your book order around. During the holiday rush season (Nov and Dec.) You will need to allow for 5-7 business day turnaround. Please note this does not include shipping time. Books are shipped from the mid west and will arrive to most USA locations in 2-3 business days via USPS. Express shipping is also available.
Can You RUSH My Order?
We make every attempt to accommodate requests for RUSH orders but we cannot guarantee them. It really depends upon how busy our print facility is at the time of your request. We do not charge additional fees for RUSH requests.
When you place your order, there is a box for additional information. Please add your request there for our production team to see and send us a quick email along with your order # to firstname.lastname@example.org to make a special request.
Can I Make a Change to My Order?
Due to our highly automated book printing process, it is impossible for us to make change requests to your order after it has been placed. Please be sure to double check your layout in the software before you order is placed. This layout will show you exactly how your book will print. It also helps to have another set of eyes look over your book before you purchase.
Do You Ship Books Internationally?
Yes! We can ship books worldwide. We offer standard international mail delivery via the USPS or Worldwide Express shipping. Please note that you will be required to pay any tariff, taxes or duties at the border, in addition to the shipping fees.
