#1 question for album companies is "What
is a page?" There is much confusion about
what a page actually is because so often the term is
to the Webster Dictionary:
(noun). 1. One side of a leaf of a book, newspaper,
(noun) 1. A sheet of paper (or similar material)
as part of a book with a page on each side.
does this apply to an album?
Just as it would to regular books, newspapers, magazines,
etc. If you open a book and look at the page numbers,
you'll see (with exceptions of special
sections that may appear in the front and back)
that there is one page number on the front side of the
paper and another number on the back side of the paper.
The reason is that each side of the paper is a "page".
The actual paper is NOT a page. It's called a leaf.
interiors are the same as books. The front side is one
page, and the back side is one page. Because there is
so much confusion about "pages", you'll find
that our albums are sold in terms of number of "sides"
in order to reduce any confusion (a page is a side).
Albums have one side on the front and one side on the
back. For matted albums, each side requires one mat.
