Lay-Flat Paper

Producing a lay-flat book has been traditionally burdened by long turnaround time constraints, complicated processes and cost. Today, Mazina lay-flat paper has revolutionised the way people think about producing digitally printed books. 

Used by major photobook producers, professional photo labs and commercial printers around the world, Mazina lay-flat paper allows the production of stunning lay flat books. What’s more, as Mazina doesn’t require specialist equipment or glue it is surely the simplest and quickest solution around.

Using FlexBind® technology which is a process that integrates a patented flexible hinge into the high-quality print and photo substrates, Mazina lay-flat paper is an ideal drop-in option for all photo books, albums, pitch, presentation books and any project with high quality images that cover an entire spread. Use your existing binding methods such as, stitching, side sewing, gluing, PUR etc. The Flexbind hinge can be located on the long or short side of the sheet, giving you all the size flexibility, you need. 

Mazina layflat sheets work with production digital printing presses from leading manufacturers such as HP Indigo, Kodak, Xerox, Konica Minolta, Ricoh and Canon.
