Convertible Solution’s TRU-Flat® binding technology allows photo book printers to print and easily bind beautiful lay-flat photo books. This technology has been incorporated into Mohawk Fine Paper’s Panoramic Book Block paper stocks.
For the Creative Professional
Panoramic books are perfect for photographers, architects, creative professionals, and those that want to deliver an exquisite visual impact. Designed to run on digital presses, the pages lay perfectly flat when the book is finished and deliver stunning digital photo reproduction without the traditional gutter running down the middle of the page.
Crossovers are gone and color always matches across a spread! Build books for important presentations, proposals and studio portfolios. Ideal for creating photo books with photos that flow seamlessly across the fold, making each spread a visual feast. Artists, art galleries, museums, high-end product catalog designers will love the ability to layout their pages without concern for images getting lost in the gutter.
Convertible Solutions pre-converts the Panoramic book block paper with cohesives that simplify the creation of photo books. After printing, the pages are folded, stacked and pressed together to form a series of two-page spreads without a gutter or seam to interrupt the images. An additional printed Panoramic sheet can be wrapped around the book block to form a simple soft cover or the finished book block and be case bound.
