Panoramic flush mount*

The Original Wedding Book set the industry standard many years ago, introducing the flush mount pages to allow photographers using panoramic spreads vs the rigid boring traditional way.

*International patented system

Customized Mat

Made of refined Tintoretto paper that enhances the classic character of this product, the passepartout are carefully cut thanks to a numerical control process.
Forget strict catalog settings, our Matted Album allows you maximum freedom of expression by creating openings and, therefore, a unique narrative rhythm for each story.

Sizes

The Matted Album is available in 9 sizes:

Vertical: 8×12; 9.5×13; 12×16 (20×30; 25×35; 30×40 cm).

Horizontal: 12×8; 13×9.5; 16×12 (30×20; 35×25; 40×30 cm).

Square: 8×8; 9.5×9.5; 12×12 (20×20; 25×25; 30×30 cm).

Smaller copies

You can clone your main book into smaller copies, flush mount as well, ideal for parents and friends: 4×5” (10x13cm), 6×8” (15x20cm), 8×12” (20x30cm) vertical, square and landscape. Or even smaller copies stitch bound: 2×2.5” (4x6cm), 2.5×4” (6x10cm), 4×5” (10x13cm) vertical, square and landscape.

In the Matted Album, a thin or beveled mat is applied over the page of printed images. The process of cutting the mat openings is done with maximum precision to correspond to the layout of the images. The layout is not subject to any fixed template and can be prepared with any software, Photoshop and InDesign included, by simply applying a thin border around the images per the specifications below. Files can be uploaded as PDFs or JPEGs (see our Print & Bind document for all the relevant details).
By using Graphisoftware 6.2.0, you can design the Matted Album as you would any of our other books, simplifying the process (see Graphistudio 6.2 pdf).

The aperture will be 1/3 of inch smaller than the actual dimensions of the image in order to ensure the perfect superimposing of the mount on the perimeter of the image.

The Matted Album with thin mounts can include up to 60 pages (30 double spreads), the one with bevel mounts up to 40 pages (20 double spreads).
