 Memory Books

Memory Books are available in vertical, horizontal, and square formats. We offer several different cover types including softcover, photo wrap, velveteen, art cloth, and multiple leathers. Also, there are many template options for pages and covers. To wrap it all up, there is gilding for the pages and foil embossing can be applied on many of the cover options.

Memory Books are available in 2 options, Hinged and non-hinged.  Hinged allows the page to lay flat.  If your book has mostly spreads, this is the option to choose.  Non-hinged is a magazine style book which does not lay flat.  Roughly 1/8” of the printed page will be bound into the spine.  Any content close the binding edge will not be seen. We suggest choosing, “score-flat” for non-hinged Memory Books. This will allow your pages to open easier.

For binding purposes, each memory book requires a minimum of 20 pages/sides (10 physical pages front and back) to be ordered.

Maximum Number of Pages:

100# Text – 100 pages

All other paper types – 70 pages.
