Overlay Matted 

Overlay Matted albums are contemporary 'no-edge' albums, a simpler, more modern take on the classic matted album. With a wide range of printing methods, paper stocks and personal options, it's easy to customise your design.


Pages 

Pages are mounted overlay style, with the photo mounted behind a card frame, and with clean cut edges (no edging or corners). Available with ivory or black mats and with ivory or black core pages.

Choose from a range of papers to print your images - Satin, Pearl, Nettuno or Tintoretto printed using six-colour digital offset technology; or Kodak Endura Luster photographic paper printed with traditional silver halide technology.


Maximum Pages 

The maximum pages in Overlay Matted, Duo, Musée and Classic Matted albums is 30. That equates to 60 sides, or 31 Workspace or Photojunction layouts, since the first and last layouts are both single sides.

If it becomes necessary to create two volumes because you have exceeded the limit, we offer 15% Companion Discount on the cheaper of the two volumes.


Cover Options

Choose from our range of cover materials, order the album plain or personalise it even more by selecting one of our cover options – Photo FrontWrap-AroundCover Motif or Embossed cover styles. Add names to Photo Fronts or Cover Motifs by choosing one of our template styles. Photo Front covers are available in either half or full photo covers. Cover Motifs come in Square, Vertical or Horizontal formats, and Embossed covers have the option of two fonts - Futura or Bank Gothic.

Design Notes

If you're designing albums yourself using Photojunction, even with our matted pages you don't have to drag and drop your images into existing "templates" if you don't want to. You can lay prints out on the page almost any way you wish, design layouts on the fly or use templates that you've created yourself or downloaded from our website.

For practical reasons the minimum “legal” distance between matted apertures, and between apertures and the edge of the page, is 10mm (3/8-in). (The minimum distance to page edge is set to zero in Flushmount and Duo albums so that you can bleed images out to the edge of the page.)

When you do bleed images to the page edge, make sure critical image areas (such as borders, text, heads) are at least 12mm from the edge, especially if a flushmount copy is to be made. Otherwise they may look unsightly or even get trimmed away. Text, heads etc should also be kept clear of the page spine.

Photojunction displays photo safe guides on page layouts to remind you of this, and will also warn you if your design doesn't comply, as the problem needs to be fixed before we can make your album.

Workspace design of matted albums is entirely template based. If you want to "free-design" matted albums, please use Photojunction.
