Photo-Wrapped Layflat

The newest addition to our line of photo books, the Photo-Wrapped Layflat Album, is our most design-forward and essential photo album, developed to honor your innovative approach to photography and storytelling. With the highest number of interior, layflat pages in our collection (100!), this album is the perfect canvas for your unique photos—from your latest professional photography session, to the film photos from your big trip, or the iPhone pictures you’re dying to get off of your camera roll.

As with everything we do, at the heart of our brand is a commitment to quality, which is evident in the selection of materials for our Photo-Wrapped Layflat Album. Crafted by real humans in the United States, this album is a testament to approachable luxury, with our matte buckram textured cover paper binding and choice of two interior paper types that lay perfectly flat and make great panoramic spread showcases. Read on, to learn more about the little details of this book that make it the perfect choice for documenting your vision exactly how you see it.

The Exterior

Editorial, Iconic, Custom

Fully Customizable Cover Layouts


We designed the Photo-Wrapped Layflat Album with your cover in mind — you’ve been asking for more freedom in color, photo placements, and font choices in our Layflat line and this Album delivers. Try one of our original four cover layout designs inspired by museum-quality art and photography books meant to elevate your photos to that middle-of-the-coffee-table-dying-to-be-displayed style:

(1) Try our One or Two Photo Wrap layout for your bold landscape photos that wrap the entire cover with elegant overlaid text in your choice of 16 font options.

(2) Our Classic Inset layout (portrait or landscape!) design brings an elevated and minimal focus to a single photo (designed to look like a traditional inlaid cover photo) with a customizable color field background in any color in the RGB rainbow.

Psst, check out the Pro Tip Section below for how to match the perfect color to your photo.

(3) The Edge Full Bleed layout mimics a traditional binding technique where the spine and covers are different materials. Fill your cover and back with stunning portrait images and choose a custom color for the spine to match.

(4) And finally, our Two Photo Feature layout combines the magic of our Two Photo Wrap with our Classic Inset in an editorial layout meant to showcase your photography and bold typography with a custom color background to match.

Pro tip: Don’t know which custom color to select that best shows off your selected cover photo? Go to Adobe Color, upload your photo, and Adobe Color will return 5 color options pulled directly from the image that best match your photography. Copy the RGB Hex Code from the color selection into the colorpicker module in the Artifact Uprising books editor.


Matte Textured Paper Covers


Taking cues from our favorite art books, our beautiful matte texture paper covers display your photography in crisp clarity with a gorgeous subtle paper texture. This texture is called Baby Buckram and is similar in texture and scale to our woven linen cover materials and originates in archival book binding woven materials, bringing an understated elegance to the Photo-Wrapped Layflat and Photo-Wrapped Hardcover covers.


Hand-bound, Made In The USA


Each of our photo albums is assembled, bound, and finished by real humans in our binding facilities, bringing an extra level of attention to quality and detail that only practiced human hands can bring. Your moments deserve more than a cookie-cutter album. Trust in our hand-crafted option, which offers exceptional quality without stretching your budget.

The Interior

No Gutter Here

Panoramic Lay Flat Page Spreads


As the name of the album and our collection denotes, the Photo-Wrapped Layflat interior pages lay flat with nothing lost to a traditional binding gutter (the valley between two pages of a book), making it the perfect option for displaying your photos with the seamless, panoramic impact that our Layflats are known for. Whether you primarily shoot landscape or portrait photos, enlarging them to span both pages of the book can give your images the space they deserve, and since the album stays open when lying flat it, it makes a great display piece for your shelf or table.

For When You Just Can't Decide

One Hundred Unbending Interior Pages


We know it’s hard to decide which photos make the book and which ones don’t (there are so many good ones) which is why we designed this album to have the highest number of interior pages in our Layflat Line. The 100 unbending, lay flat pages can hold up to an impressive 180 photos, perfect for when you just. can’t. decide.


Premium Paper


There are two paper type options offered for the interior pages of our Photo-Wrapped Layflat Album, Matte and Lustre, each unbending, and a perfect medium to display your printed photos. Produced by family-owned and sustainability-minded paper company, Mohawk, every page in the album is also certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.


Press Printing


In this album and across all products, we use the press printing method, which produces the warm visual aesthetic our customers know and love. This aesthetic can be attributed to our own unique press printing color profile which we have fine-tuned over the past 11 years. Press printing renders your photos through a series of tiny ink dots, rather than the environmentally harmful traditional photo print method using silver halide chemicals.

The two paper type options in the album, Matte and Lustre, each interact with the ink a bit differently: choose the matte finish for a softer aesthetic where each photo’s ink soaks into the paper fibers, or choose the lustre finish for a satin aesthetic, serving as our understated take on traditional “glossy” print.
