We truly believe that Lush Albums created by Finao are one-of-a-kind albums that are worthy of your one-of-a-kind photographs. Every album is thoughtfully crafted with care by a team of artisans. From cover to cover, literally, each album is made with uncompromised quality.
One of the most important features of the album is its binding. Today we wanted to share some valuable information about the Finao binding process and the difference it makes to your images and your album.
Bridging the Gap
Finao uses a “folio” style of construction. Folio construction means that the pages lay flat, eliminating the gap from one page to the next. Old-fashioned coffee table books without a folio style have thinner pages that are stitched or stapled together. Because of the way they are bound together so tightly, the books can’t lay flat. Each image is forced to bend at the inside margin. It’s impossible to have an image cross pages because of the deep gutter where the pages meet.
With Finao’s folio construction, you’re not losing any of your image in the center. This construction technique eliminates the gap between one page and the next. When the book is open, the pages lay beautifully flat. This allows your stunning images to flawlessly cross from one page to the next. There’s no ugly gap in the middle you have to design around. This construction provides a seamless panorama, providing an album worthy of your work.
What’s Inside Matters
Each album is both animal-friendly and environmentally-friendly, crafted with pure-quality, all-natural photo glue. The matte pages are strong and sturdy, made from 100% plant-based cellulose. The album is supported by a thick spine. When the album is open, the spine lays flat, supporting the pages and displaying the images beautifully. It keeps everything together with no sagging or skewing of the pages. This strength and support will preserve the quality of your album for years to come.
There is a difference when it comes to binding, and the quality that Finao provides is without compromise. Each Lush album is designed with quality and care, we know that the binding is so important.
