Attending ImagingUSA gave me the opportunity to check out many of the album vendors in the wedding industry, and there is no shortage of album vendors. With close to 80% of the vendors specializing in prints, albums, or a combination the selection was overwhelming. Having never been to a photo imaging expo before I did not know what to expect, but what I quickly realized is that every vendor was vying for my business.
One of my only objectives was to see the Mpix product line and their premium album, which I anticipated would fit within my lineup as a premier product. While being extremely pleased with their entire line of products, I felt their top of the line album fit a niche, but it didn’t quite portray the premium level I have been looking for in a wedding album. With that bubble burst it left me to ponder the other 100+ vendors for an upscale album, which was no small feat.
After a couple more hours of roaming the expo floor and inspecting the overwhelming range of products, I finally narrowed my focus down to four vendors. After conferring with Darren on his thoughts he confirmed my picks and helped me to further narrow the selection to a pair of albums from Loktah and Ginkgo.
In the next couple of weeks after the details are worked out, I will be rolling out my premier line of albums with selections from both Loktah and Ginkgo, so keep an eye out for the announcement.
