The Beatles LP Wedding Guest Book April 20, 2016 10:59
We’ve made plenty of the Beatles LP wedding guest books over the years. The Beatles LP wedding guest book has become one of our popular item in our Etsy and Storenvy shops. All of our Beatles LP records were provided by our clients, because vintage Beatles LP records are precious and hard to find. The LP vinyls guest book concept was originally came from recycling and reuse. Couple years ago when LP records were not as trendy as now, a co-workers of Maria wanted to get rid of his LP records collection and he gave us couple boxes of his old LP records. We loved retro LP records so we took the his generous offer. We saved some that we like; Eagles, Madonna, Elvis Presley, Chicago, Elton John and for our record player.
Most other LP musics in those boxes we’re not familiar with, we didn’t know what could we do with it so we made couple journals out of it for pleasure. Some we gave it to friends as gifts during Christmas, but later we decided put some LP records journals on Etsy for sale rather than sitting on the selves. Surprisingly Recycled LP journal got hit likes. Etsy communities loved the recycled records and reuse and bring it to live. Then later some Etsy clients requested to have a recycled LP record wedding guest book made instead of journal. Vinyl journal is too small for guestbook purpose. We figured we could cut the LP records into bigger size so it can be used for guest book. Then LP wedding guest book is born and sold much faster than LP journals. Not too long after we posted couple of our LP record guestbooks on our blog and then some other music fan clients wanted to have specific type of LP records for their wedding guest book covers, and they even willing to send their own records at their own costs and this was the journey of our Beatles LP wedding guest book came to live.
This Beatles LP wedding guest book project was made for Erica and Scott back in February 2016. Erica and Scott sent us their own records, and their vinyls were remastered not like those old vinyls we had before. It’s appeared to be thicker than the old vinyls and it came with a nice LP cover. We really like the thick glossy finish LP cover, we could have easily make another guest book out of the LP cover for sale, but we thought making it to a shopping bag from LP cover as a package of the guest book is cooler, and Erica and Scott would treasure the guest book even more. We believe packaging always plays important role of a product. If the LP records come with a nice LP cover like this project, we always like to make use of it and turn into something nice with the guest book to delight our clients. Because wedding day is a big day of their lives, they want something special and personal to be celebrated with. We used a lyrics page we collected from other Beatles LP wedding guest book project as first lining page. We usually saved and recycled Beatles LP cover and lyrics pages from other projects. Because most of our clients didn’t care to keep the left over materials they shipped us and we thought what a waste to throw it away.
Ringo Starr’s eye looked through the hole from Lyric page underneath, we thought it's a fun little details on this guest book.
After the lyric page, letterpress printed personalized info on the first page.
Another lyric page we bounded together before the back cover; a free spirit John Lennon on phone with Yoko behind the scene.
