Various liquids, including chemicals were used in testing and wiped clean without damaging the prints. (Available on photographic paper ONLY) View Video Demo

BINDING

All album pages are flush mounted on acid free boards using special adhesive that allows for flexibility. Enjoy durability and longevity with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE of beauty.

PictoBooks offers 2 types of binding styles:

  • PANORAMA BINDING

  • Panorama Binding is a way to extend a panoramic print over the gutter of the album. Scored and folded rather than cut, the images flow from one end of the spread to the other with a seemingly absent division. (Not available with fine art linen paper and press-printed companion albums)

  • SPLIT BINDING

  • Rather than laying a panoramic print across the fold of the album, the print is cut in half. Split Binding leaves a 1/16th of an inch gutter down the center of each spread.

GILDING

Gilding is the color of the outer edge of the flush mounted pages. It protects and beautifies your page edges. Gilding is available in standard colors of clear, pearl, black, silver and gold. Custom colors are also available at additional charge. Send us your desired color and we will custom blend your gilding color. (Available on photographic paper ONLY)
