Many flat storage solutions can be bound directly into a hardbound book spine. To allow to items to be placed within, extra material is added to the spine. General ideas include envelope or sleeve of varying material, photo or document display page or CD/DVD keeper page. Budgetary restrictions commonly place these grouped together at the beginning or end of a book next to the end pages. However, they may be placed at intervals or wherever they are required – except between odd and the next consecutive even page (front to back on one sheet of paper).
