Whilst the increased impact of layflat has been long acknowledged by architects and interior design practices, traditional layflat production has been burdened by long turnaround times, complicated processes and expense.
Mazina: Quick and cost-effective layflat architect pitch books
Gaining traction in with major architects and interior design businesses, Mazina allows the production of stunning architecture presentation books with the same turnaround time as regular binding that lay flat.
Mazina is ideal for presentations with detailed maps and plans, and for any project with high quality images that cover an entire spread.
The Mazina difference : The Flexbind Hinge
Traditional layflat binding is a long manual process involving glueing single-sided paper back-to-back, Mazina is regular sized digital paper that includes a re-enforced, flexible, printable hinge near the binding edge of the sheet.
So, while the print and binding process remain standard and on both sides of the paper, the hinge enables the finished book to lay entirely flat. Architects can print full panoramic spreads without any image loss in the gutter or without the additional time and cost in glueing sheets.
A simple drop-in solution, Mazina layflat paper works with most digital presses and does not require additional equipment.
Create books of all shapes and sizes
Mazina removes the usual size restrictions on digitally printed layflat architectural and design presentations. When open your books can be as wide as A3 landscape (around 90 cm wide) or Portrait (45 cm tall)!
Mazina sheets work with digital printing presses including HP Indigo, Xerox, Konica Minolta, Ricoh and Canon. The Flexbind hinge can be located on the long or short side of the sheet, giving you all the flexibility you need.
We understand that you probably dont print yourselves. To see if Mazina works for you we’ll work with your current suppliers to get started, or we can introduce you to one of our certified Mazina layflat book producers.
