Types of Binding for Your Hardback Photo Book

  • layflat books: The layflat binding allows you to showcase your images to their best advantage, since the printable area covers an entire double-page spread. The spreads are folded flat in the middle so that your photo book can be opened completely flat. It's the ultimate choice for panoramic landscape photos - you can mount your new photo book on a picture rack, opened on any page and get a new wall art each time!
  • traditional glue binding: If you design your photo book with a hardback and the glue binding, you are getting a very durable photo product. It will look brand-new for years, and even after passing through many hands.
