Albums for Celebrants Use
Albums are defined as a blank book for the insertion of photographs, stamps, or pictures. Here in the TCN Celebrant Shop, albums are used to describe a display book with plastic pockets, with or without a special cover, for the purpose of holding pages, for
- a copy of the ceremony, from which the celebrant may read,
- as a register for all ceremonies other than marriage for use in the ceremony
Albums can also be used as a gift to present to someone as an
- Memento Album for holding a copy of the ceremony and related material for the guest/s of honour prepared by the celebrant for the special occasion eg a Party with a Purpose (PWAP)
- Life Story or holding Life Story notes or for a 'This is your Life' style ceremony album,
with the Guest of Honour's name stamped on the front with or without a motif.
- Appreciation Album with appreciation pages for the guests for the guest/s of honour to complete as a celebration gift before or at the ceremony for the special occasion eg a Party with a Purpose (PWAP)
Some celebrants use purchase a 20 or 40 pocket Albums with our supplier made cover and the words Ceremony Register to create a register for all ceremonies other than marriage.
This is not the same as our TCN Register Folders. A Register Album looks more like a book and is used at the ceremony.
Album Care Instructions
- Take care to ensure pens etc in your briefcase don't press against the fabric. If small dents do happen, your register can be gently rubbed with a clean cloth whilst warming it with a hair dryer or gently ironed.
- Keep covered when not in use, and if needed
- Clean with a damp cloth and a little 'mr sheen'.
- Any cleaning product will clean them up (not metho or turps as they dissolve the material but is useful for putting any Colour on a worn spot).
- Vaseline will put a shine back in the material and make it water repellent and also clean dirty spots
- If any brass corners get lost, let us know and we can send a replacement out.
- Any PVA glue will fix any parts that may occasionally lift off with extensive use or age
