Premium lay flat photo books

Our premium layflat photo book binding will take your photo book designs to the next level. It removes the crease in the middle of your books, allowing your photos to run seamlessly across two pages making it perfect for your favourite landscape shots. Here we’ll give you some ideas on which photos to use, how to create your book, and how to display it in your home.

What is premium layflat?

Premium layflat photo books use a combination of unique binding techniques that not only remove the centre crease from your books, but also allow the pages to open completely flat. Our premium layflat photo books use special paper that’s thicker than our standard photo books and because there’s no crease in the centre of the page, your photos will be printed seamlessly from left to right.

Premium layflat will look amazing with any type of photo, but there are certain shots that will really shine when used in your photo book.
