Spectacular Photo Books
The high-quality paper that consumers will love.
The photo book market, increasingly popular with customers, has grown steadily in the past several years. Now you can offer a more competitive option to your clients by choosing KODAK Photo Book Paper — our thinnest photographic paper. This thin-based, silver-halide paper is ideal for photo books, postcards, album covers and more.

KODAK Photo Book Paper has a 169 micron-thick base—compared to 210 microns from our world-class KODAK EKTACOLOR EDGE Paper. The thinner base of KODAK Photo Book Paper enables this product to work well in double-sided, photo book assembly and features:
  • Increased color gamut for stronger, brighter, more vibrant colors
  • More robust post-processing performance
  • Excellent skin-tone reproduction
  • Now available in Lustre (E) and Glossy (F) surfaces
  • Optimized for digital printing
  • No backprint
KODAK Photo Book Paper now offers an increased color gamut with improved cyan, blue, green, and yellow colors. This paper has the highest D-max and largest color gamut of any of our consumer papers. Customers will love the rich colors, bold blacks, clean-looking whites and realistic skin tones. In addition, you'll love the robust post-processing performance with a thin-base paper that stands up to the necessary binding, gluing, and folding.

KODAK Photo Book Paper delivers:
  • Quality: Consistent print quality with long-lasting, eye-catching colors

  • Options: Another innovative paper choice from Kodak in the surfaces customers prefer most
