I'm making a Wedding Guest Book, what kind of pen/marker can I use to write in it?
For writing on these semi-glossy pages, we suggest using a fine-tipped permanent marker. Specific pens we recommend:
- Fine Point Sharpie Pro
- The Sharpie Ultra Fine Point
- Sakura Pigma Graphic Pen
- SAKURA Pigma Micron Fineliner
- Uni Pin Fine Line
- Sharpie Extra Fine Point Metallic Markers
It says 11 linen colors, why do I only see 10?
The half linen color is only available with a photo dustjacket— it's a more textured linen that does not allow for foil stamping.
What does the inside cover look like?
There are two textured pages that are on the inside front cover and the opposite page. The first photo page (page 1) is on the following page.
The Layflat Photo Album is larger, has thicker pages that lay completely flat, and is made from more premium materials, like a linen-bound cover with choice of foil stamping or custom photo dust jacket.
The books are the same premium product, but the design process is slightly different for each one. The Wedding Guest Book is pre-formatted with specific templates and layouts to make designing your perfect guest book even easier, with plenty of space for guests to sign.
The Wedding Layflat Photo Album pre-loads templates designed for making a wedding album and has the option to decide how many images you would like in the book from the beginning.
Every one of these book options is fully customizable!

Foil Stamping Details
- Three lines of text may be printed on foil-stamped covers.
- Each line has a text limit of 32 characters.
- We cannot foil stamp our Half-Linen cover option due to the texture and color of this linen.
Can Instagram Photos be used for these books?
We don't recommend using Instagram photos in our Layflat Photo Albums. They will be printed with a large amount of white space around them because the image size is too small to be printed full bleed.
If you would like to print your Instagram photos, there are some grid page options (website only) that have small enough grids to facilitate the smaller Instagram file size. We recommend these grid options for smaller social media photos as printing them full bleed can result in pixelated pages. If you are ordering from our apps please use the original files rather than these smaller Instagram photos.
Can I print my title in another language?
We can only print English characters for foil-stamped titles. The preview may show non-English characters but our script cannot understand them. Non-English characters will be printed as a "?". If you are using the app, please only use English characters for your titles and captions if you are ordering a dust jacket. Emojis or non-English characters will not print. All characters will print in dustcover titles made using the website.
A Note on Cropping
Our Layflat Photo Albums feature full-bleed dust covers, and the pages can also be chosen to print full bleed. Due to the nature of full-bleed printing and trimming, we recommend keeping all important subjects at least 0.25” from the edge shown on the cropping menu and print preview. Full bleed prints can be cropped up to an additional 0.25” from this preview so we recommend keeping all vital limbs, heads, and text away from these crop lines.
