Paper options for Coffee Table Photo Books
Our most premium option in the range, the lay flat photographic paper consists of top quality Fuji photographic film, mounted to heavyweight board to create thick, rigid pages, perfect for panoramic images across double page spreads. Alternatively we offer a lay flat press printed paper, which is thinner, lightweight and more flexible or finally go for our traditional “magazine” style option with the press printed paper.
Standard Press Printed Paper
Using the latest digital press printing technology, this premium magazine style paper bows at the centre seam to create a traditional coffee table photo book feel. With a satin sheen finish on the surface, this is our original press printed paper option and has the ability to include up to 200 pages.
Press printing uses a traditional 4 colour print process to produce a high quality product bound in a hard cover. Given the binding process, up to 10mm of the centre of spreads can be concealed in the bowed centre seam, so please consider this when creating your design.
Fine Art Press Printed Paper
Our stunning fine art press printed paper offers a completely matte surface with a magazine style bow in the centre seam. The paper itself is flexible and you can include up to 200 pages in your coffee table photo book design. Press printing uses a traditional 4 colour print process to produce high quality prints every time.
Due to the traditional binding process of the fine art press printed paper, up to 10mm of the centre spreads can be concealed in the bowed seam, so please remember to consider this when designing your coffee table book.
Lay Flat Press Printed Paper
An excellent combination paper for your middle range packages, this 270gsm matt paper is flexible and printed using a 4 colour digital press and bound in a hard cover. This innovative paper is able to lay flat when opened with the addition of a flexible, clear plastic hinge on the centre of each individual spread.
Given the binding process, we do not advise that any critical image elements such as faces, body parts etc cross over the centre seam as the hinged spine is moveable and adds a slight colouration of up to 10mm down the middle. You can design up to a maximum of 100 pages in this paper for your luxury photo book.
Lustre Photographic Paper
Professional colour paper from the Fuji Crystal Archive range with a semi-matt finish, this paper is coated with a soft, speckled sheen to give a high quality photographic finish with accurate colours throughout your luxury photo book.
This versatile paper remains our original and most popular paper option, as it offers a timeless feel with beautifully detailed, photographic reproductions for each and every image.With minimal image interruption across the centre seam, this paper is ideal for stunning panoramic shots as it lays completely flat when open. Available up to a maximum of 50 pages.
Velvet Photographic Paper
Our crystal archive fuji velvet paper boasts a professional coating with a zero-reflective top layer, creating a stunningly soft and deep-matte effect. With pure whites and a tactile feel to the touch, this popular paper gives a dusky hue to deep blacks, perfect for vintage effect images.
