About Hardcover Books

Our Hardcover books are created with flexible pages when a coffee-table book is required.

This style book is built to hold our max number of pages, allowing clients to order everything from their session.

Using a state-of-the-art press printing process to create book pages, our Indigos have a 200-year permanence rating. Smooth matte is also a favorite paper option for its soft-to-the-touch feeling. Pages are bound into the book by saddle-stitching and then covered with the same quality photo and fabrics used on Albums and Layflat Books.

Hardcover Books are sold as a lower-cost book option for clients, or as a book series to cover the baby plan sessions and to pair with their albums.
