LayFlat Photo Album Overview
Our layflat photo album is the most popular and versatile album in our range with a incredible high quality finish. With 7 different cover styles to choose from, 50 different colour materials and 5 paper types, you can create a truly one of a kind album for every occasion.
Each page is printed as a seamless double spread that lays flat when open, and our traditional binding method means you can place images right across the centre fold with minimal interruption from the spine. Create stunning panoramic pages with edge to edge printing to give your images centre stage. Photographic lustre and gloss paper are available as standard with this album but you can also upgrade your paper to either photographic metallic or velvet, or our fine art inkjet paper at the checkout.
Available with up to 100 pages / 50 spreads, the layflat photo album is assembled as full spreads so your design will always start and end on a double page, and you can select either a black or white end paper for inside your cover to compliment the overall design. Our layflat photo album is only available to professional photographers and can be created using our free downloadable SimWare software. Once you have registered with us and been approved by the team as a PRO user, you'll be able to download the software and begin designing.
We've got a cover option and material to perfectly match the mood and look of your photo album. All of our cover styles below are included in the cost with the exception of genuine leather being the only additional upgrade at the checkout.

Layflat photo albums are each created with an end paper to bind the pages and cover together. Choose from either black or white end paper to give your album the perfect finishing touch to match your design. Select your option in the checkout at the final stage of placing your order.
Paper Options For LayFlat Photo Albums
With a choice of five papers our professional Layflat photo albums offer the largest selection across both our Album & Coffee table photo book range.
Every main layflat photo album is presented in a plain grey presentation box free of charge. We offer matching personalised boxes for selected cover types including embossing and UV printed albums available to add on at the checkout. You will also have the option to add a USB to your box at the checkout which rests in foam neatly underneath the album and is available for all cover types and sizes.
Sizes of LayFlat Photo Albums
The professional Layflat photo album has the largest choice of formats and sizes in our professional album range. Choose from 3 different formats and 5 sizes.
Order your smaller duplicates at the same time as your Layflat photo album with no need to redesign. These are perfect to add to your package to give out to friends, family and the bridal party or groomsmen. Smaller duplicates are available to select at the checkout in the relevant size to your main album and will mimic the internal design completely. Opt to have a hardback photographic printed duplicate or choose our printed paper for a more cost-effective option. Our printed paper duplicates are available in both hardback and softback format. Cover options on the smaller duplicates are slightly different to the main album depending on your chosen style, see our dedicated smaller duplicate page for more information.
How To Order LayFlat Photo Albums
All photo albums are ordered via our free downloadable SIMWARE software specifically designed to make album creation quick and easy. Our albums and books are exclusively for professional photographers and designers, so you'll need to be registered with us and approved as a PRO user by one of the team before you can access our professional album software. You can design within SIMWARE or within another design software of your choice but all photo album orders are placed and uploaded via our software. To import an existing album layout from another design program, simply export your design as high res spreads and drop them into SIMWARE to begin placing your order. If you have any questions on this process or require any help at all, please get in touch with the team who can talk you through this in more detail if required.
