Perfect Binding with a Standard Thermal Binding Machine
Binding projects on your own, with that exact professional edge and look, has never been easier.
Step 1
Step 1: Crease Paper Cover
Use a paper creaser to make perfect, sharp, and the most effective creases to your documents and covers. Hand folding in not ideal as it leaves soft creases with cracks and unsightly edges. Creasers are easy to set up and repeat for fast multi-book production.
Step 2
Step 2: Cut and Place Glue Strip
Glue Strips are simple to use and handle. Trim them with scissors to fit the width of your project’s crease. Trim the ends to leave a small space (1/4 inch) between the ends of the glue strip and the edge of the cover.
Step 3
Step 3: Place in Binding Machines
With the glue strip inside the crease, place your book “block” on top of it and tamp down all the pages. Make sure your project is flush on all sides and the glue strip stays centered below the block. Then, when warmed and ready, place the project into your thermal binding machine and let the bind cycle complete.
Step 4
Step 4: Cure & Trim Book
Finally, after removing the bound project, tamp it down again and allow the book to “cure” (letting the pages set into the glue) for a few minutes. An additional final step could be to trim your book with a stack cutter. This allows you to fix any imperfections in your edges as well as cut custom lengths to suit your needs.
