Personalized Photo Book Online Options
Creating a photo book online involves several steps similar to ordering enlargements and other prints. The options include the size of the photo book, how it’s laid out, and a few other choices.
Here’s a short rundown of the different aspects of ordering a photo book online from Saal Digital:
Let’s cover a few of these options for ordering a photo book online in a little more detail below.
The Cover Says a Lot
“Never judge a book by its cover” is a great saying, but it doesn’t apply to ordering a photo book online through Saal Digital. The cover of these books will grab the viewer's attention at first glance.
Your photo book can have an image printed on the front, back, or both covers. You can also opt for some of Saal Digital's fine materials, such as cork, natural linen and other color linens, or a wood look. Leatherette in several colors, matte or glossy photo paper, and padded or unpadded material underneath are further options.
Personalization is also available on several levels. Your book cover can have text or clipart added in multiple styles, colors, and sizes.
Lay-flat pages are one of the most important choices for ordering a photo book online that highlights your special images in the best way possible. Lay-flat means exactly how it sounds - the pages lay flat in their binding.
With most books (photo books or otherwise), when you open up the book and lay it out to view it, the binding causes the pages to curl up slightly near the binding. This causes a center bulge. This isn’t such a big deal in books characterized by text, but when we’re looking at photos, that bend is extremely annoying.
A lay-flat binding is a different type of page management. Instead of having the pages sewn in tight, the binding allows the special sewing to flex out of the way, causing the open pages to sit flat across the other pages.
One massive advantage of a lay-flat binding is that it allows you to have a spread photograph covering two pages, such as a panoramic image or a side-by-side photo collage. The effect of this is that the photo book displays the images in the best possible light. A lay-flat binding should be considered whenever you order a photo book online.
High-Quality Makes High-End
Ordering a Saal Digital photo book online allows you to present the photos chosen for the book in the best manner possible. Part of what makes a photo book from Saal Digital so special is that everything from start to finish is the highest possible quality.
The paper used for printing is high-quality photo paper instead of standard book paper. Saal Digital has two different types of paper management, too. You can have regular ply layers or opt for what Saal Digital calls XT paper or Extra Thick.
The XT pages have an additional 600 g/m² cardboard substrate layer in between the image papers. This substantial page thickness sets these photo books apart from regular photo books.
The page count available for XT books is from 10 to 36 pages. An XT book combined with a padded cover is one of the most incredible-looking and feeling photo books you’ll ever see.
Another unique option from Saal Digital for their high-end photo books is a gift box presentation box. The cover of a gift box can be anything from simple linen to an acrylic print. The combination of a specialty cover on the gift box and a matching, complementary, or contrasting cover on the photo book itself, adds to the impact of the entire presentation.
Saal Digital won’t put their logo on any of your photo books, and you can even decide not to have any barcodes on it, either. This lets the images and the way you arrange them stand for themselves - both of which are options that professionals prefer.
