I don't "provide" prints as in proofs. They order what they order. In spite of the fact that I price my prints to encourage large print sales (4x6's are kinda expensive while 8x10's are kinda cheap), most of my print sales are 4x6 and 5x7.

I typically work only in square albums and do a pretty equal business between 10x10 and 12x12. My average album size is 40-50 pages. Some try to keep it to 24-30 and I've done a few 90 pagers.

Nice! Kinda makes my head spin a bit though :) I've never done anything larger than 30 spreads (60 pages)...and that's big enough...I like to keep it to 20-25 spreads if possible.

To the OP, I actually stopped offering regular print packages. I only do albums and large specialty prints like canvas wraps and metal mounts. Small print packages just got to be too much of a headache.

On line viewing is the way my clients see their proofs. I, like Peacefield, work in square albums as a standard but always cater to the clients wishes if they want something different. My basic album is 30 pages (15 spreads) with a per page price to enlarge the album. About 80% of the time, there are upgrades to more pages.

sorry if I didn't state clearly.

What is the size of album do you give to client ? What about the digital negatives on CD/DVD ? Do the digital negatives have to be at certain megapixels ?

10x10 and 12x12 albums for the main albums and 8x8 for parent albums.

I export final client images at 3000px on the long edge and also give them a separate low res folder for web use.

why do you provide 3 albums ?

my cousin only received 1 album for his wedding. I think it was 12x12.

Three options, not necessarily 3 albums per client

Do you guys make your own albums or do you have someone make them for you? If you have someone make them who do you use?

I design my own albums but send them off to get printed and bound at Millers.

Likewise, I design them myself using FotoFusion and have them produced by Zookbinders.

10x10 as standard album with an upgrade as a 12x12. I do the designs and have them made through a company in North Carolina. They print and bind with a mini sample album to me first for approval. Parent albums are either 5x5 or 8x8.
FotoFusion rocks and has made my design process much easier.

Like everyone above I design my own layouts also. I use Photojunction and then send the files off to KISS Wedding Books for printing and binding.
