cardboad photo pages

I may be jumping the gun  a bit, but FI and I were talking about what to do with our wedding pics and we were going to make a photo book. He mentioned that he wants super high quality and if possible cardboard type pages. I looked on shutterfly and mixbook and they do not have those type of pages. Does anyone else know where I might find some?? And what do you all plan to do with all your wedding photos??

Thanks!

    I think you're talking about flush-mount albums, so-called because when the book is open, the thick pages join up and practically elimate the look of a gap in the middle of the pages.

    I've just started researching these albums myself so I don't really have a recommendation for you.  I do know that the prices vary quite a bit, depending on how many pages you have and what kind of cover.  Some places have a free software program for you to use to make it a bit easier.

    From what I've discovered so far, you can expect a 12x12 book with 20 pages to start at $220 and go up from there.  Certainly not a low-budget option; you won't find these kinds of books on shutterfly, mixbook, blurb, etc.

    You should get this through your photographer. I am buying mine from my photog because no companies seem to make this for the average girl.

    Pretty much all companies that make the high quality flush mount albums with the rigid pages only market to professionals and not the general public. Your best bet would be to go through your photographer, or if you have usage rights and a disc see if you can find a different photographer or an individual album designer.

    I think these companies offer thicker photo paper and/or flush-mount pages:
    AdoramaPix
    Mpix
    MyPublisher
    Picaboo

    Also, this website has a ton of photo book reviews:
