Lay Flat Albums

Lay Flat Albums

Lay Flat Albums are the perfect choice for wedding albums, wedding guest books, boudoir books and parent albums. A great choice for those wanting something more substantial than a typical  photo book.  The page thickness and panoramic 2 page spreads will simply WOW you!

Paper options for our standard lay flat album include: Mohawk, Superfine in a soft matte/ eggshell finish or industry leading Fuji Crystal Archival Professional photo paper in a lustre finish.

IMPORTANT: While both options offer you outstanding print quality, and excellent archival qualities we do not recommend the matte paper if any of your images are darkThis is typically seen in dim lit boudoir images or indoor wedding  images. If your images are natural light or brightly lit, then it is not a problem. Photo paper captures more details and reflects light into your images better than matte paper so keep this in mind when choosing your paper. 

Our lay flat photo books are fuzed back to back, giving you strong sturdy pages You can also upgrade your page thickness to the Flush Mount /double thick page, where prints are mounted to a hard substate, offering you a more ridged, non-bending thicker page.

Don’t settle for a flimsy photo book when quality matters. You need a book that will stand the test of time.  All of our books are made in the USA by skilled craftsmen and come with a 100% Lifetime of Use Guarantee!

They are simply the best DIY wedding albums and photo books you will find!

Real Photo Paper Makes Your Images POP!

We use only the finest quality quality papers for our lay flat albums. Choose from 2 options:

  1. Mohawk Superfine Paper (eggshell finish) is noted as one of the finest press printed digital papers on the market today. It’s soft matte look is the ultimate paper for high-end, elegant books. No other digital paper has the same reputation for quality, consistency and uniformity. Just the feel of it inspires great design, and adds a level of prestige to any project you create. Perfect for guest books requiring signatures as the paper easily accepts inks. We do not recommend the matte finish paper if your images are dark, have a lot of shadows or black and white. Matte paper does not reflect light onto the pages so images can appear darker when printed.
  2. Fuji-color Crystal Archive Professional Photo Paper (lustre finish) is hands down the best choice for those looking for top of the line print quality. This paper is actual photographic paper that is processed with silver halide chemistry, much like a photograph. It’s a favorite of demanding professional photographers because of the fine detail and tonal ranges it offers. Blacks are blacker, whites are whither, images are shaper and colors really pop. The lustre finish also gives your album pages a beautiful soft sheen finish that protects against fingerprints. A favorite choice for wedding albums and boudoir books.
