Welcome to MyBinding Video. This video is designed to help you in the folding and using of binding strips within the Fastback 9 Binding System. We'll start by using at the construction of each kind of binding strip and then how to use it. You'll notice that on the underside of each binding strip, there are a series of lines, these lines are not symmetrical and you will note that you do not make creases in the centre of the binding strip. A simple pinching motion will help you find the correct spot to make the crease. This fold can be made in the hand or on a flat surface.
Observe just how easy it is for Cory to pinch and crease the binding strip. He then places the strip into the machine being sure to slide it all the way to the right side of the opening. With narrow and medium Elec-Strips as well as Comp Strips, the shorter end of the folded binding strip lays against the back wall, up against the heating element. The longer edge will lay flat on the floor upon which you will put your documents.
Setting up an image strip is a bit different. The crease is done in the same way with a pinch and a slide, but with an image strip, when you place it into the machine, the long end or the tall end goes against the back, towards the heating element and the shorter edge will go along the floor where you'll put your documents.
Now you are set to make some fantastic looking books with the Fastback 9. For more ideas, demonstrations and other videos on the Fastback Line, check out MyBinding.com.
