Albums & Photo Book Options
Press printed books are digitally printed with HP Indigo printing technology. To achieve optimal print quality we use the highest quality inks, on 100# semi-gloss, or matte Mohawk Superfine acid free paper. The quality and quick turn around to produce these books is very impressive. It’s a very reasonable cost for a very professional looking book. Our Soft Cover and Hardcover Photo Books are examples of this. We also offer a press printed version of our Layflat book when you choose the Matte “writable” Mohawk paper, (not Fuji Photo Paper).
*Please note that there is an upgrade option on the Layflat books to Fuji Chrystal Archival Photo Paper but we do not offer this on the Softcover or Hardcover Photo Books. Fuji pro paper comes standard with our top of the line Flush Mount Albums.
A spread is basically 2 pages in your book that face one another. Think of your book laying open with page 1 to your left and page two to the right on the same physical piece of paper with the fold down the middle, your book will not start with one page on the right, it will start with a full spread. When you design a layflat book in the software you will work in spreads not pages. The spread of a layfalt book is mounted back to back to create 4 pages in your book or two separate spreads. When you design albums in the software you will work in spreads not pages.
Photo Books on the other hand work in pages. When you work in the software, you will design your book in pages not spreads. The first page of the book will be on the right side of the page with pages 2 & 3 following on the next open page.
Flush Mount and Layflat Albums – The minimum is 10 spreads, or 20 pages with a Max of 40 spreads, or 80 pages.
Hardcover & Softcover Photo Books – The minimum number of pages is 10 spreads, or 20 pages, and the maximum of 300 pages.
Spine printing is available on Hardcover & Softcover Photo Books and Layflat Albums. Spine printing is not available on Flush Mount Albums at this time. The software will guide you on placement and size of font.
