Our page increments are pre-set. Most products offer 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, and 100 sides but some offer other options. Our NeoClassic, Heirloom, and Cosmopolitan albums all have a maximum of 60 sides. Our DVD Presentation Book, USB/Keepsake Presentation Book, Vista Layflat Book, and Curve books provide options starting at 4 sides. The Zen layflat Impact X , Zen Layflat Impact , Zen Layflat EXD , Zen Layflat EX and Zen Layflat Hard Cover book line offers sides in even increments between 10 and 100 sides.

An easy way to think of this is if you have a book with 80 sides, there would be 40 physical pages in the book; each side of the page is printed on.

Many of our books are available with either Laminate Matte, Laminate Glossy or Varnish page finishes. Our Art Layflat Books and Folios do not come with a page finish.


Our Laminate Glossy and Laminate Matte finishes are covered in a laminate coating that makes the pages feel a bit thicker, with slightly more protection from normal wear and tear than our third option, Varnish. The Laminate Glossy finish has a high gloss appearance and is great for images with a lot of bright colors, as it makes the colors pop. The Laminate Matte finish has a soft and smooth finish in appearance and to the touch. We often suggest the Matte finish for black and white images, or if you have a wedding with a very romantic feel. The Varnish finish is more of a semi-gloss page finish and is sometimes compared to a luster or a satin finish. As mentioned above, the Varnish is a bit thinner than the laminate finishes, but the cost is comparatively less as well. Many photographers prefer our Varnish finish, as it is a happy medium between our Laminate Matte and Glossy choices.

We offer quite a few. Our NeoClassic and Cosmopolitan albums come with thicker, board style pages and a layflat binding. The DVD Presentation Book and USB/Keepsake Presentation Book offer hard pages in the removable booklet. The Art Layflat Book has posterboard-type pages.

WWe offer many products with thinner pages including our Book Bound, Zen Layflat, and Art books.


Our Heirloom Album, Art Book Soft Cover, Vista Layflat Book, Curve, DVD Presentation Book, and USB/Keepsake Presentation Book all start and end with full spreads, providing the most printing space for your book.


The Art Layflat Book and Art Layflat Folios are printed on an elegant, uncoated, ivory paper instead of our standard paper. There is no option for matte or glossy finish on the inside pages.

The difference between the Art Layflat Folios and the product_zenfolio.aspx are in the sizes and the paper. The Art Layflat Folio series comes in 9x11.5 and 11.5x9 whereas the Zen Layflat Folio series comes in 8x11, 10x10 and 12x12 sizes. The Art Layflat Folios are printed on an ivory uncoated posterboard-type page while the Zen Layflat Folios are printed on our standard paper and coated in matte or glossy.

The Cosmopolitan Album cover is traditional lacquer on the cover covered by an acrylic plate.

The Art paper is an ivory uncoated posterboard-type page whereas the rest of our products are printed on a true white page. The pages are not coated with matte, gloss or varnish like our other books. They remain uncoated to show the true beauty of the paper. Please contact Customer Care to request a sample page for your studio.

The Art Book Soft Cover is printed on uncoated white paper and is bound with a soft cover and traditional binding, while the Art Layflat Book is printed on uncoated ivory paper and bound with a hard cover and layflat binding.

We have both Book Bound EX and Hard Cover books as well as Zen Layflat EX and Hard Cover books. The EX is a Hard Cover book with "Extras"! An EX book includes a fully printed, matching book jacket for additional protection and aesthetic value. This style also includes a red or black slide in case with optional Hot Stamp Text rather than the frosted plastic case that is offered with a Hard Cover book.

The EX book comes with a black or red book case with optional Hot Stamp Text, while the EXD comes with a custom designable book case.

Book Bound LX books and leather covers of the Zen Layflat Impact line have an upscale premium genuine leather cover.?The leather is from natural hides with some slight variations in the texture and color adding uniqueness and authenticity of the product.?Book Bound FLX books and the faux leather covers of the Zen Layflat Impact have the feel of fine leather in an "Animal Friendly" product.? It has a smooth clean and consistent feel and is a great synthetic alternative to genuine leather as well as being offered at a lower price point.

The only difference is binding itself. The Book Bound books are bound with our "perfect binding". These books will lose about a half inch in the center of the book to the gutter; the area where the book is bound. The Zen Layflat books feature our patent pending, invisible binding which allows you to fully display your images without gutter loss.

The Zen Impact line comes with your choice of cover in genuine leather, animal friendly leather or our new material covers. These books are showcased in a designable deluxe presentation box that includes a plush felt lining with book holder and DVD placeholder.

Hot stamping is defined as a dry printing process, which uses controlled heat, pressure, and precision timing to transfer a color pigment from foil to surfaces of varied shapes and materials. This process forms a permanent bond between the part and the foil, and creates a dry print. Hot Stamp Text is available on Book Bound and Zen Layflat EX cases as well as on all Leather, Animal Friendly, and other material Zen Layflat covers. It is also available on the Cosmopolitan Album cover, NeoClassic album cover, DVD Presentation Book case, USB/Keepsake Presentation Book case, and the Gallery Box.
