The MILK lay-flat binding technique


Lay-flat binding is a traditional technique which allows the spine and pages to open and lie completely flat. This allows you to leave your book open on the coffee table and enjoy panoramic spreads across two pages. Make sure you choose the right image template to ensure your hero-shots shine on a double-page spread. The images are printed on high quality paper stocks are flush-mounted on board. This detailed approach is what creates true quality.

Compared to other binding techniques, none of your imagery will be lost in the gutter or confined to a single page. This allows the depth and meaning of the image to be in full effect. Whether remembering your wedding day, that perfect sunset, or a group of people who you couldn’t have done justice to on a single page, our lay-flat albums will help you to re-live an unforgettable experience.
