GraphiStudio & Lesley Thomas Photography – The Perfect Partnership!

As many of our customers will already appreciate we at Lesley Thomas Photography have had a partnership for many years with GraphiStudio in Venice, Italy, and we place our complete trust in them to print and bind all of our Wedding Books to a world class standard once Lesley has finalised the designs with our couples.

The Original Wedding Book™

This is the cornerstone of the GraphiStudio wedding book offering and remains the favourite choice with the majority of our couples due to the widest possible range of options for cover, paper type & thickness and print style. In GraphiStudio’s own words, “The extraordinary result of a 20 years journey of discovery is called Wedding Book. An exceptional product that enhances the photographic reportage by combining printing art with the prestigious editorial layout of the most celebrated projects”. Working with Lesley and GraphiStudio our couples are able to produce their own unique wedding book that perfectly satisfies all of your needs.

The Cover

Choosing and designing the cover is always a very special event in the creation of our wedding books. All of the covers provided by GraphiStudio are handmade in a single process that is dedicated to your own choice of design. We can’t better GraphiStudio’s own description of this exciting process; “The combination of the material, colour and front panel layout is essential: the leathers, the Nappas, the metals or the silks, to name but a few, selected in the preferred tones, embrace die-cuts, images, inserts, embossing and seams. The spine and back, which enrich the front cover, can be chosen to match the main chromatic tones or to elegantly contrast them with colours and textures.”

The Linings

One of the most important details of the wedding book that differentiates it are the highest possible quality linings and together we can choose a colour combination that harmonises the cover and the inside of the wedding book. As GraphiStudio explain, “its texture creates a balanced link between the precious cover material and the finishing of the pages . . . The colour palette is extremely wide, as is the refined choice of the spun cloths available”.

The Formats

The book sizes available range from the majestic 40x50 cm, the classic 30x40 cm to the compact 25x35 cm and 20x30 cm to the new 35x45 cm. The corresponding landscape and square versions are also available.

The Papers

You can choose the textured, smooth or pearl paper with digital offset printing photographic or the photographic or metallic paper with digital laser printing. All options are available with glossy or matte lamination with the exception of the metallic paper which is already laminated by default. You can also choose from Thin, Thick or Rigid papers.

The Binding

GraphiStudio has also invented and patented a revolutionary binding system, whose superior quality is clearly evident the moment the wedding book is opened for the very first time. The perfectly lay-flat opening allows a full panoramic view of the whole spread, including any element of the image positioned over the seam. We agree with GraphiStudio that the result is an almost cinematographic experience and the high quality engineering of the block ensures a viewing quality that is maintained throughout the years.
