      Whether you’re a professional photographer or simply looking to showcase your own beautiful photo moments, layflat photobooks offer a seamless and uninterrupted display across both left and right hand pages.

      What is a Layflat Photobook?

      Unlike traditional photo albums, where the pages are bound together on the spine making the pages open more like a bound book, layflat photobooks have pages that, as the name suggests, lay completely flat when opened due to the way in which they are joined together.

      Instead of single pages being bound together these double pages are rather glued together and stacked one double page spread on top of the other and bound as a book block.

      This allows each double page to open on its own centre creating a single view panoramic view of the photos across both pages.

      This unique feature ensures that no part of the photo is hidden or distorted by the centre binding, giving the most stunning visual experience

      What Can Layflat Photobooks do for your Content?

      By eliminating the central gutter, layflat photobooks provide a panoramic and immersive view of your photos, allowing you to fully appreciate the details and composition.

      You can position photos across the entire spread knowing that nothing will be cut off or hidden from view.

      When would you use a Layflat Photobook?

      Here are just a few ideas suited to this luxury item:

      1. Photography Portfolio: If you are a professional photographer, a layflat photobook is a perfect choice for creating a stunning portfolio. You can showcase your best work with a seamless and uninterrupted viewing experience, leaving a lasting impression on potential clients.
      2. Travel or Holiday Memories: Document your adventures and travel memories in a layflat photobook. From breathtaking landscapes to candid moments with locals, these books allow you to capture the essence of your journey.
      3. Wedding Album: Layflat photobooks are very popular for the Wedding market due to the stunning detail of the photographs taken, many of which are group or crowd shots which are landscape in orientation. The fact that a large photo can be surrounded with smaller ones but still be large enough to show all the detail (like the rings or some lace detail) makes layflat photobooks the perfect choice.
      4. Family Albums: When the whole family gathers, there are always dozens of photos taken with cousins, friends, nephews, uncles, aunts and grandparents. These crowd or group shots lend themselves beautifully to a layflat photobook.
      5. Art and Design or even Modelling Portfolio: Whether you are an artist, graphic designer, interior designer, or even a model, a layflat photobook can showcase your work in its professional and sleek presentation. The seamless pages provide a perfect canvas for displaying anything from art, illustrations, design projects or various model shoots in stunning backgrounds.

      Don’t let the ideas stop there…. Let you’re the inspiration of your photo moments guide you.

      What paper is a Layflat Photobook printed on?

      When it comes to the paper used for layflat photobooks, there are two beautiful options:

      Photographic Paper:

      Found under the Photographic Layflat option in the Photo2Print software

      Many layflat photobooks are printed on high-quality photographic paper.

      This type of paper is specifically designed for photo printing, delivering vibrant colours, sharp details and excellent image reproduction.

      The thickness and texture of the photographic paper add a premium and luxurious feel to the layflat book.

      Digitally Printed Paper:

      Found under Digital Layflat option in the Photo2Print software

      Although printed on 170gsm double coated paper this is by no means low quality.

      The presses used to produce these marvels compare to high end litho printing quality.

      The paper is however thinner and not as smooth as the photographic option.

      It is a great choice if you are looking for a layflat photobook but can’t afford the top photographic option.

      Note:  only 2 sizes are available under Digital.

      Caring for your Layflat Photobook

      To keep your layflat photobook in the best condition and ensure its longevity, here are some tips for care:

      1. Handle with Clean Hands: Before opening or handling your book, make sure your hands are clean and free from any dirt, oils, or lotions. This will help prevent any stains or smudges on the pages.
      2. Avoid Moisture and Humidity: Keep your book in a dry and cool environment to prevent moisture damage. Moisture and high humidity can cause the pages to warp or stick together, compromising the overall quality of your book. Do not leave your book in a hot place, like a vehicle.
      3. Store Properly: When not in use, store your book in a protective case or storage box to shield it from dust, sunlight, and any potential scratches. This will help maintain its pristine condition and prevent any accidental damage.
      4. Gentle Cleaning: If your book needs cleaning, use a soft and lint-free cloth to wipe the pages gently. Avoid using any harsh chemicals, detergents, or abrasive materials that could damage the printing or paper.
      5. Handle with Care: When opening or closing your book, handle it with care to prevent any bending or folding of the pages. Hold the book firmly from the edges to ensure the pages lay flat without any creases.

      In Summary

      Layflat photobooks are the perfect solution for uninterrupted and visually stunning photo displays.

      From seamless panoramic views to a wide range of sizes and paper options, layflat books provide endless possibilities to enhance the beauty and impact of your images.

      With proper care, your book will continue to bring joy and preserve your cherished memories for years to come.
