Hi there,

I had a client contact me today asking for a wedding album with a glass/crystal etched cover. Has anyone heard of this? What company/supplier could you recommend that has these types of albums?

Thanks,

Shaun

Graphi used to do something similar, they may still. It sounds very 80's though.

Yeap Graphi does it - I think they call it Crystal Glance or something. I have a sample album with the crystal cover, very nice - doesn't look like 80's at all to me :D

I have a sample album of one of my 2009 weddings with the Crystal Glance cover and have just ordered an album for a wedding I did in October where the clients specifically asked for the Crystal Glance cover.

I thought from Tim's comment I was perhaps showing my age but apparently not as it still seems to be in vogue. Saying that markets do differ around the world at different times.

They're just outside Venice in Italy and, as far as I am aware, will ship anywhere.

Web site is graphistudio.com/en

Hope you find something useful.

Cheers

I've never seen crystal glance, i'm sure if it's done badly it'd look terrible but done well it'd be fine. Now wood covers, not so much!

Depends on the wood and where you're from. I'll be doing a wedding this summer in the woods, so it'd really fit the setting if they chose to do an album and wanted a wood cover :)

Take a look at the youtube note. Seems to be www.ELDreamcatcher.com (external link) or something like that.
