The pages of our "Artful Albums" like completely flat, so that there is no distortion across your photos, like there would be in a normal photo album or photo book. In fact, the left and right pages of our Artful Albums consist of a single sheet, uncut, so that you see just a tiny crease in the middle where the spread folds. We offer a variety of paper types, which are then mounted on cardstock to make pages that are 1/16 of an inch thick. No tearing or bending with our "Artful Albums!" Also choose from a variety of cover options, including fabrics, leathers, suedes, canvas, and more. Our heirloom-quality "Artful Albums" are simply beautiful, and are a great choice to display and retain your family photography, senior portraits, or wedding photography for generations to come!
