How are LayFlat Press Books different from Hard Cover Press Books?
Hard Cover Press Books and LayFlat Press Books are different in a number of ways – different cover options, different paper types, and a different binding process. Named for how they lay when open, LayFlat Press Books actually lay flat so images aren’t distorted by the hinge of the book, while Hard Cover Press Books are bound as a typical book would be. LayFlat Books are our high end press book and have bonded leather covers, while our Hard Cover Press Book covers are made of eurohyde. Finally, LayFlat paper is the thickest hinged paper in the industry, including both pearl and smooth. Hard Cover Press Book paper types include matte, semi-gloss, and linen and are thinner when compared to the LayFlat pages.
