Layflat books use a unique hinged paper so the pages “lay flat” when the book is open. Because the pages lay flat against each other, only a small part of the image is lost where the pages meet. This allows a single image to be spread across two pages.
The hinged paper is an #80 cover stock, substantially heavier than our standard book paper. The heavier weight paper and the lay flat characteristics give this book a high end, premium feel.
Cover options include nine Linen color choices, four colors of Leatherette, blue Faux Suede or use your photo for a Custom Cover in glossy or velveteen matte. Gold or Silver foil imprinting is available on Leatherette covers.

We provide two templates to make creating a custom image cover simple. One template allows for a single image that spans the front and back cover of the book. The other template allows for a separate image for the front and back cover.
Both templates allow you to enter customized text in up to four locations on the cover. The pager editing tools are enabled for the Custom Cover templates, so you can modify the starting templates to fit your needs. If you wish, you can design your own covers as well. Simply create your artwork the right size (the exact sizes are show in the custom cover templates in the ROES ordering software) and drag you artwork into the appropriate template. Custom covers are laminated with either a glossy laminate or a velveteen matte laminate to protect the cover image.
Foil imprinting on the cover of a leatherette book provides a way to put a title or other information on the cover. Foil imprinting is available in Silver or Gold. We offer up to three lines of imprinting in the center of the book and up to three lines in the lower right corner. Each line of imprinting cost $6.00. This is imprinting, not embossing. The metallic foil is transferred to the album cover by an electro-thermal process. No impression is made in the album cover.
