L&L: Tell us a little about the history of Pinhole Press.

PINHOLE: Pinhole Press is an online boutique for personalized, inspirational photo gifts. Brides love Pinhole Press because it’s a beautiful and simple way for them to bring their wedding photos to life outside of their computers. From photo books and holiday cards to calendars and day planners, we make high-quality, functional products that can be cherished for years to come.

L&L: Your photo books are beautifully designed, simple and elegant. Where do your templates come from, and is there a certain inspiration behind them?

PINHOLE: We have a team of designers who create the templates for the photo products on PinholePress.com. The idea centers around creating a clean canvas for the photo to “do the talking” instead of drawing the attention away with obtrusive designs and formats. Our templates are beautifully simple and the goal is to inspire the recipient – brides, mother-in-laws, best friends and beyond.

L&L: What are some of your products that couples might be interested in customizing with their wedding day images?

PINHOLE: Perhaps my favorite is the Panoramic Photo Book which has 60 pages of beautiful paper WITHOUT a gutter. That means there the pages lay perfectly flat and you’ll never find a bridesmaid missing in the center!

L&L: The paper you print on is beautiful. Can you tell us a little about its qualities and where it comes from? Are you particular about the inks you use, too?

PINHOLE: We source all of our paper products from Mohawk Fine Papers, the paper company with the highest environmental standards. Pinhole Press products are made from Mohawk Superfine, which is acid free, archival, certified by Smartwood for FSC standards, and made using Green-E certified wind-generated electricity. The luxurious eggshell texture yields extraordinary print quality for limited edition books and prints.

L&L: Can you tell us about your photo book options? What cover options and sizes do you have available?

PINHOLE: We have several photo book options to suit the many different styles of brides. Our traditional Signature Photo Book is hand-bound and beautiful way to showcase wedding photos. Our new Panoramic Photo Book, which I mentioned above, is gutterless – yes, it lies perfectly flat! – which means your photos can stretch across the spread without interruption. We also have small photo book options that are perfect for wedding gifts. Our range of softcover photo books are perfect for moms and dads, and our brag books are perfect for grandma. She can carry this small eight-photo accordion book around and show-off her granddaughter or grandson’s big day.

L&L: Do you have any products that might be good for wedding gifts?

PINHOLE: We have a number of products that can be made into memorable wedding gifts. We’ve seen family members take childhood photos of the bride and create adorable photo notepads as a nostalgic gift on her wedding day. This is sure to bring tears! Our frames prints are also make for a heart-warming gift. Insert a special photo in this simple but beautiful black frame, and voila! You have a personalized wedding gift.

L&L: You have beautiful save-the-date, invitation and thank you card templates, too. If couples would like to order these, what is your typical turn around time? Does the turn around time vary depending on how many cards are ordered?

PINHOLE: We have a wide assortment of wedding stationery ranging in sizes and styles. They are stunning, easy to create, and they are printed within two or three business days after ordering. That means if you select two-day shipping, you’ll have your order within five business days.

L&L: Do you have any other products geared towards couples to use on their wedding day?

PINHOLE: That’s a loaded question! There are so many creative ways to utilize our photo gifts on your wedding day. For example, we’ve seen brides create photo wine labels featuring a photo of the couple, the wedding date and the venue and gift them as wedding favors. We’ve also seen brides use our stationery as the menu card during the reception. One of my favorites is the small favor box – ranging in a number of designs – that is perfect for a small thank-you gift for each guest.
