What's 'best' is going to be largely a matter of personal preference, and as such I would recommend getting some samples if you're unsure. The site you've linked to offer sample photo books and print colour tests on different papers for a small fee: http://www.artisanstate.com/sample-photo-book.html This will be the best way to check you're getting what ...

This is just business, and is not unique to photography. I'm a electrical engineer and have a consulting company that also sells small gizmos on the side that I designed.

I find it hard to believe that an art store or craft store has noting that will do this trick. In the old days we used a scrap book and just pasted pictures using photo corners. You can make these with strips of paper. You can find photo double stick mounting tape. You can find spray adhesives that are labeled photo safe. Now most material warnings are for ...

I'm not sure how thick the paper you're talking about is, but I have a Canon Pixma Pro9000, and because it has a straight paper path as an option, I can run large (13x19") and thick papers through it.
