Frequently Asked Questions

 

What are pages, sides, and spreads?

1 full spread = 2 pages/sides (left and right)
Example: 16 pages = 8 full spreads OR 2 single pages/sides and 7 full spreads

I want to know if the Legend album begins on the right with one page or begins with a 2 page spread.

For all of our albums they can start with either a half or a full spread. We don’t restrict so feel free to start it the way you want it to.

What is a Split Binding?

Our albums have superb Forbeyon split binding. Split binding is taking each spread and cutting them in half and placing a super-slim (0.1mm) gap in between the pages. It is one of the thinnest gaps in the industry and produces a stronger book block.

If I want to sell a package, what should I include?

If you are photographing weddings, our suggestion is to offer a 12×12 Fine Art Album. 10×10 Fine Art Albums can be duplicates for parent albums. You can also offer our most popular 12×12 Legend Album and offer the smaller 8×8 as the duplicate option for parent albums.
