Press Books

A semi lay-flat or magazine style photo book

Press books are ideal for those looking for an album with thinner pages on matte paper, or for the ability to include up to 300 pages. Our semi-lay flat pages have a built-in hinge that allows for beautiful full spreads with virtually zero image loss across the gutter. Our standard matte pages are bound with a full gutter that makes it more suitable for designs featuring single pages instead of full spreads. 

PAPER TYPES

Choose between matte paper with standard or semi lay-flat binding.

Standard Matte

Our press printed standard matte paper delivers beautiful subtle tones and contrast. It is our most economical paper, bound magazine style, making it perfect for books that will be designed on single pages. The gutter hides anything printed across the seam, and is not suitable for full-spread designs.

Semi Lay-Flat Matte

Our press printed semi-lay flat matte paper offers a true fine art look and feel. While there will be a very small gutter, you can design spreads than pan from side-to-side, with virtually no image loss.

SIZES

END SHEETS

Choose between cream or black acid free end-paper with a slight tooth to give it a beautiful understated texture, or our premium marbled end paper, hand made by an artist who has successfully resurrected a centuries old technique.

STAMPING

Customize the cover of your album with one or two lines of text, using any of our six standard metal fonts. Or, upload a design of your own for a completely unique experience. Complete the personalization with a studio logo stamping on the back cover. Foil options are available on our buckram material in blind, black, gold, silver, white.
