What is a Layflat Photo Book?

A layflat photo book is what it says it the name – it lays flat!

When you open your layflat photo book, there won’t be a gap or gutter between the pages, which allows you to create seamless double page spreads of your panoramic photos and impressive landscape shots.

Whether you’ve captured a beautiful sunset, or have a large group photo that deserves to have everyone included, a layflat photo book allows you to showcase your photos without any disruption to the image.

Benefits of a Full Page Photo Book

The beauty of a layflat photo book is that it creates a professional finish within seconds.

Layflat photo books also make impressive gifts as the format really allows you to present your photos in the best possible light. Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, a birthday or just something to show how much they mean to you, tell your story uninterrupted with a full page photo book.

Hardcover Layflat

We offer hardcover options across all of our photo books, excluding Pocket and Small.

Whether you are creating a professional layflat photo book, something as a gift or just prefer the look and feel of a hardcover, the option is there for you – regardless of the size of your project.

A hardcover is our most popular cover type and will give your layflat photo book the feel of a real book. You can fully customise the hardcover with your own photos, text and other design elements. A hardcover is also the only cover type that is available with our stunning Highlights too.

Bring Your Layflat Photo Book to Life with Video

Take your layflat photo book to the next level and add video! Enjoy your favourite memories over again and again by adding them to your project with QR codes. Simply upload your footage into our software, and a QR code will be generated alongside a film strip of images from your video. Insert this into your CEWE PHOTOBOOK, and when it arrives, you’ll be able to scan the code with your smartphone to relive those special moments.

Photographic Paper Types

If you want to create a layflat CEWE PHOTOBOOK, we have a range of high quality Photographic Paper for you to choose from. Which one will you pick?

Classic Photographic Layflat

Classic Photographic Paper

Classic Photographic Paper is the bread and butter of photographic papers, and will display your photos to the highest standard. The heavier weight and photographic feel of Classic paper makes it perfect for a professional portfolio or that extra special layflat photo book.

Gloss Photographic Layflat

Gloss Photographic Paper

Gloss Photographic Paper brings out those bright colours in your travel snaps or shots of the great outdoors!
If you prefer your photographs to have a glossy look, the high-gloss finish of this paper is a match made in heaven.

Matte Photographic Layflat

Matte Photographic Paper

With a smooth matte finish and a layflat binding, Matte Photographic Paper combines the beautiful feel of matte with the wow factor of layflat. Matte will also give your shots a crisp, artistic feel – perfect for black and white photography. It is also less likely to reflect light, allowing the finer details to stand out.
