Layflat Books

Layflat Books

It’s simply the perfect photo book! Photos are uninterrupted with a lay-flat display. Design as full spreads with your choice of Photo or Smooth Matte paper. Both paper options provide accurate color rendition, sharp image details, and the highest quality archival printing. Layflat Books are ideal for wedding sign-in books, baby books, and any type of session you offer.

Layflat Books can hold anywhere from 10 to 40 spreads, and are available in 8 sizes + orientation options from 6×6” to 12×12”, including 11×14”. Customize each spread with your own layout and design, no matter how big or small the occasion. From our archival paper options to the cover itself, you can make it personalized for each individual.

Choose from a variety of cover options, including any of our fabrics and leathers, custom photo covers, cameo + combo covers. Add debossing on select cover materials for full fabric, leather and cameo options.

Customize Your Book

We've Got You Covered

Layflat Books come in four different cover styles: Custom Photo Cover, Fabric or Leather Cover, Combo Cover, or Cameo Cover.

Custom Photo Cover

Design a Custom Photo Cover with your own images and design printed on your choice of Lustre or Metallic photographic papers or Fine Art Canvas.

Fabric or Leather Cover

Let the cover say it all with a timeless Fabric or Leather Cover. Choose from our collection of Linens and fabrics, faux leathers, or our Premium and Distressed leathers to fit the style of your client's book. You can even give a sneak peek of the incredible images inside! Just add a Single Square Cameo to fabric and leather covered Books 8x8" and larger. For a more tailored look, the full Premium and Distressed Leather Book covers have rounded corners.

Combo Cover

Want to combine a Custom Photo with leather or fabric? A Combo Cover lets you display your custom image on the front with your choice of fabric or leather wrapping around the spine and covering the back. Or, create custom designs for both the front and back cover with fabric or leather just wrapping around the spine. Finish with optional stitching where the material meets the image, including the choice between black or white stitching.

Choose a Wood Print Combo Cover made from our maple Wood Print material, or a Metal Print Combo Cover available on all five of our Metal Print options. Pair these with any of our leathers or fabrics wrapping around to the back to create a sophisticated look that is sure to impress.

Add Debossing

Personalize your clients’ Books with debossing! We offer blind debossing, white or black debossing, and foil debossing in gold, rose gold, and silver foil colors. Debossing is available with two font options, Oswald and Quicksand. Choose between 3 location options for the front cover and a lower, center location for the back. This customization option allows you to enhance every Book with your clients’ names, your own business name, a year, or even a special message.

Debossing is available on select cover materials for Full Fabric, Leather, and Cameo Covered Layflat Books.
