Our Bristol Proof Book offerings are press-printed PhotoBooks. They are printed on archival-quality,
acid-free 65 lb paperstock and are bound like a typical library book - that is, they do not lay flat when open.
As a result, each page is designed separately and two-page spreads are not practical as the binding area of each page
For our proof books, all pages have a common background and the layouts have a traditional or classic look. While
the final pages have a template-based look, they are in fact custom-designed with no requirement to force the pictures into
a pre-defined layout. Instead the layout is customized to the customer images for each and every page.
The front and back hardcover and spine are glossy and may contain one or more photographs from the collection
within. Titling and captions are also possible in a variety of fonts and colors, as needed.
Typically, the Proof Book will contain all of the final proofs posted to the customer's online proof gallery.
If one of the smaller proof books is purchased, it may, as an option, contain only the "best 200 or 300" proofs
as selected by the customer from their online proof gallery. These printed pictures (proofs) are not all the same
size, however. They are laid out creatively - each page unique to the pictures it displays.
Both book sizes are available in two (2) thicknesses - 100 pages, or 140 pages. For the largest wedding galleries,
we recommend our largest Proof Book, measuring 11" (w) x 14" (h). A second version measures 10" (w) x 10" (h).
The layouts of these two books are stand-alone and cannot be ported to any of our other album or photobook styles or sizes.
