One of the most aesthetically pleasing book binding options, layflat books are an increasingly popular choice of finishing style. A pleasant alternative to conventional printing and photo albums, they are loved for the wonderful user experience it provides.
Features of Layflat Books
Unlike perfect binding, the binding mechanisms layflats use allows them to have an extremely narrow gutter. As such, the pages remain completely flat when flipped through, offering readers a seamless view of the entire page layout. They also use thicker and heavier paper than standard photobooks. These pages do not crumple or bend easily.
The capacity of layflats is rather large. The general page length ranges from 120 to up to a whopping 500 pages, depending on the type of binding selected.
Advantages of Using Layflat Books
Layflats is a fan favorite for good reason. Such layout brings many benefits including:
When Should You Choose Layflat?
The main deciding factor for going layflat would be for aesthetic reasons. Another reason for choosing this would be if you need to print several or more two-page spreads. The selected photos could be in the form of panoramic photographs of scenery or photographs of a large group of people. You won’t need to crop the photo to have it fit the page!
Layflats are also wonderful for art and photography. Living true to their nature, art and photography have no limits and are fluid in their forms. They usually come in irregular sizes and ratios, so when printed out it would be best to have them in full size in the photo book. The absence of a gutter in the middle brings out the best in the featured piece. It can be used for immortalizing art in a beautiful frame for personal collection, but it is also great for artists and photographers to use it professionally as a portfolio that they can show to clients or feature at exhibitions.
