PAGE STYLES FOR YOUR FINAO NextONE
Page-Mount Matted Style
Page-mount is the traditional construction method for matted albums.
In this style, colored lining paper is covered by a full spread matboard that has openings cut to house your images. We trim and hand-mount each photograph to float within the frames of the mat. This exposes 1/8” of the lining page beneath and creates a striking key line around each of the images. Finao offers a choice of four mat and liner colors—white, black, grey, and cream. Choose mat and liner colors to be subtly monochromatic or to accent and highlight your images. Aperture edges are clean cut with no beveling.
Page-mount mats can be alternated with flush mount pages or even combined within the same spread—the choice is yours, and design is surprisingly easy.
Overlay Matted Style
Overlay matting is a more contemporary matted album construction. Your spread layout is printed as a single image and covered or overlayed by mat board with cut openings. As the images attach behind the mat, it covers and conceals 1/4” of the print edge. Aperture edges are clean, with no beveling. No colored liner is visible, but an embossed accent line around an image or image group is available.

Photographic C-Type vs. Giclée Prints – Which are Your Best Choice?
C-Type and Giclée prints are two very different printing processes, one is a digital photographic print, while the other is an inkjet print.
Photographic Paper C-Type Printing
Fuji Deep Matte
A digital C-Type is a traditional photographic print created with chemistry and light sensitivity but made from a digital file rather than a negative. C-Type prints are high-quality but more economical for application in albums. All our C-Type prints are produced on laser printers, providing optimum results for your images for color accuracy, light fastness, and archival quality.
Giclée Inkjet Printing on HahnemUhle Art Papers
MOAB Entrada Rag
A giclée print is quite different from a photographic print, created by a digital printing process that applies pigment-based inks to fine-art paper, achieving prints of superior archival quality, light fastness, and stability. The word giclée (“g-clay”), is derived from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt or spray”.
