LayFlat Photo Album Overview
Our layflat photo album is our most versatile and popular of our entire album range, with a choice of 7 different covers, 50 different colour materials and 5 paper types, the options with this photo album really are endless. The layflat photo album lays completely flat when open with thick, rigid card pages, allowing you to incorporate full panoramic images and edge to edge printing into your design.
Our traditional binding method means you can place images right across the centerfold, with minimal interruption from the spine crease giving true centre stage to your image. Photographic lustre and gloss paper are available as standard with this album but you can also opt to upgrade your paper to either photographic metallic or velvet, or our fine art inkjet paper.
The layflat photo album is assembled in double page spreads so will always start and end on a double page spread, and you can select either black or white end papers for inside your cover to compliment the overall design. Our layflat photo album can be designed by photographers using our free downloadable professional SimWare software once you have registered with us as a PRO user. This dedicated software allows you to visualise the final product with ease, with a simple image uploader and an instant proof creator to send to clients, making album designing quick, easy and hassle free. With a whole host of free templates available, you can simply drag and drop your images into your chosen layouts, or design and save your own templates to use for future designs.
