Very nice pozzello, if I can ask, do you print them as signatures or single pages front / back?

I'm printing single pages. I would rather create folios and sew them together but because of the panoramic format I can't find a paper wide enough.

Have you considered trimming pieces long enough from rolls intended for wide format usage? in case of need you could also crease them to help with folding.

Very nice suggestion the usage of varnish, I have to try it with some of my prints!

Unfortunately the book and album paper is not available in a roll.

It depends on the style of the photobook and also your personal preferences.

If you want to add photos along with text, the classic paper will make a good choice. It’s suitable for family photo books, brochures, or portfolios. The gloss-coated paper has a sleek modern look that makes it an excellent option for high-quality images. It sharpens the image quality. These two papers can be used for hardback and paperback.

However, matte is only available for hardback covers. It gives a softer look and muted colors. It’s best for black and white photos, wedding albums, and artist portfolios. If you want to deliver a professional anti-glare finish, matte is the go-to option.

As for varnishing, if you want to keep it for longer, I would suggest using it.
