San Francisco, CA—A leading creative book as well as magazine self-publishing platform, Blurb launched its layflat photo books.
The books use double-thick, layflat paper, so customers can showcase their creativity across a two-page spread without losing any part of their image to the gutter. Using Blurb’s suite of free, creative tools, including its plug-in for Adobe InDesign as well as Blurb’s PDF Uploader, customers can create books that display every part of the page for true panoramic photos.
“We worked hard to create a book that retains the bookstore-quality look and feel valued by creative professionals and personal bookmakers who use the Blurb platform. Creating new layout possibilities, layflat allows customers across skill levels to tell their story in an impactful way, from personal vacation books and wedding books to portfolios,” said Todd Larsen, chief executive officer of Blurb.
Blurb’s layflat photo books strike a balance between quality and value. The new paper type starts at $49.99 for 20 pages in Blurb’s small square, 7×7-inch book. In addition, with a maximum of 110 pages, Blurb’s latest offering has more room for images. It is also among the largest layflat books on the market.
Layflat rounds out the company’s suite of standard and premium paper options. All layflat books come as ImageWrap hardcovers and are available in all five Blurb photo book sizes. These include: small square (7×7 inches); standard portrait (8×10); standard landscape (10×8); large square (12×12); and large landscape (13×11 inches). Layflat books are printed in the U.S. and ship globally. Moreover, authors creating layflat books can offer those books for sale through the Blurb Bookstore.
