3. Binding

MixBook photo book pages are bound in two ways:

Perfect bound books:

These books do not open completely flat. A little content is usually lost in the middle because they are glued at the spine. These books consist of fairly slim pages of about 150 gsm and can go up to 400 pages.

Seamless Lay Flat:

These books stay fully flat when opened with no content getting lost in the middle. These books are perfect for panorama shots because they are usually stuck together and printed as double sheets.
