Both the Layflat Photo Book and the Flush Mount Album are made using the same production process. But the main differences between these two book types:
1) The thickness of each page: Both book types have rigid pages but they differ in the degree of thickness. The Layflat Photo Books have thinner pages at 0.8mm in thickness. In the Flush Mount Album, you have the option to select the thickness you want, with the "Standard" at 1.1mm in thickness.
2) Gilding: The feature is only available in the Flush Mount Albums.
3) Cover Types: Flush Mount Albums has more available cover types such as Crystal Cover and Acrylic Cover not available in Layflat Photo Books.
