I did some searching and couldn't find anything concrete for this subject. I believe I just booked another wedding, and the bride wants a guestbook for the event with their engagement photos in it. Shouldn't be an issue..I've seen these at weddings before. However, where on earth do they come from? I will also be including a hardcover album in the final package, which I plan on ordering from Adorama or Mpix, unless someone knows of a better alternative in the US.

I'm very excited for this...this is the first contract I've gotten where I don't directly know the B&G. They are distant friends of my girlfriend's friends. :lol: my business is slowly but surely expanding, and I am elated to see it grow as I continue to struggle to lock down full-time employment in this economy.


Thanks for the help!

Look here at black river imaging. Quick turnaround and excellent products I have been told.

Even Mpix's hard cover photobook. These are no long suitable as coffee table books as other providers offer much nicer products for nearly the same price, but they happen to make very good guestbooks.

We are doing this type of idea, adding questions for marriage advice when people sign the guest book:

Most book or album companies offering a full service have a four week turnaround. I tell customers six weeks, as sometimes it does take that long, plus you have to account for your time for final preparations, retouching, shipping, etc, as well as rework if the book/album isn't right when it's returned to you.

Mpix turns it around in a week (usually including shipping time).
