Since I got the Elite XT perfect binder for my graphic design class, we have had so much fun putting out everything from textbooks, to professional author's works, to manuals. We even use the Elite XT to repair old or damaged books. We use this binder, along with the casemaker to do our yearbooks with a gorgeous hardback cover. The glue is non-toxic and the machine is easy to teach others to use. It is very rugged and there is not a lot to go wrong.

Making a Hardcover Book - Fastbind Elite XT

Transcript: Before we create a hardcover book using the Fastbind Elite XT, first allow 20 minutes for the machine to heat the glue.

In that time, you can prepare your pages by placing on the end sheets. Make sure the exposed paper is on the binding edge. Place an end sheet on both sides.

To start, insert your hardcover into the machine. Make sure the spine is flat to the bottom.

Before we create a hardcover book using the Fastbind Elite XT, first allow 20 minutes for the machine to heat the glue.

In that time, you can prepare your pages by placing on the end sheets. Make sure the exposed paper is on the binding edge. Place an end sheet on both sides.

To start, insert your hardcover into the machine. Make sure the spine is flat to the bottom.

Then, slide the cover to the guide, pull the hardcover guide so it overlaps the cover's edge.

Again, make sure the spine is flat--then place your pages in, confirming they are properly oriented to the cover. Tamp the ends evenly.

When clamping, place one hand behind the cover, holding it to the metal back, then bring the clamp in and secure it in place.

Now, flip the project around using the side arm. Run the splitter teeth across the project twice. This takes smooth paper and roughens it for the best glue penetration--This is required for non-bond papers.

Next, run the glue over the project. Give a short pause, then run it over again. Immediately press the cover over the glue and bring it back down three times--this spreads the glue evenly. Hold the cover to the spine for five seconds, pushing down.

With the glue drying quickly, bring the project back down, remove the clamp, and slide the project out. Then reinsert the entire book, spine down.

Ensure you have the hard cover bar in place. Then, press firmly down on the lever to crimp the spine of the book. Rotate the book and crimp the other side.

To finish your book, open it and peel back half of the release liner. Press the cover on and slide the liner out. Use the liner to cleanly rub the liner onto the cover. Repeat this on the other side. Peel off half, close the cover, and remove the liner. Press the end sheet to the cover, and then your project is complete.

You have now bound your hard cover book.

Making a Soft Cover Book - Fastbind Elite XT

Transcript: In this video we are going to make a soft cover book using the Fastbind Elite XT.

First, allow 20 minutes for the machine to heat the glue. Seeing small glue beads begin to drop is an indication that the glue is ready.

Also make sure the softcover bar is in place.

To start, take your crimped soft cover and insert it into the machine. The front should be facing the back of the machine.

Next, insert your pages so they are properly oriented to the cover. Align all the pages together.

Now, place your hand behind your pages and hold it to the machine, then bring the clamp down and secure it in place.

Use the lever arm to bring the project up, and press the cover down to keep it from improperly gluing.

Run the splitter teeth across the project twice. This takes smooth paper and roughens it for the best glue penetration--this is required for non-bond papers to expose the paper fibers.

Next, run the glue over the project. Give a short pause, then run it over again. Immediately after, pull lightly on the cover three times.

Then, bring the book down. Press the lever arm firmly down to clamp the spine. Hold this position for five seconds and release.

Unclamp the book. And remove the project.

You have now created a softcover book. For the best results, finish it off by trimming the three sides. Using EVA glue, it is immediately dry and ready to use.
Questions & Answers
Q:
Can this machine be used to make perfect bound magazines?
Asked by Lisa Marie
A:
Thank you for your question. The Fastbind Elite XT Hot Melt Perfect Binder would be able to be used for binding a soft cover book such as a magazine. One thing to consider is the Fastbind system works best with bond paper if your magazine is printed on a glossy stock a adhesive based binding system would not be your best option.

Q:
Will this machine work with glossy or textured papers?
Asked by Jorge
A:
Thank you for your question. The best way to see if this machine would work with your paper is to send us a sample and we could have a test book made for you. The machine has a "paper grain opener" which provides more flexibility when working with different paper types. Being that this is a thermal process, the process requires absorption of the glue, the glossy coatings prevent this process in most situations.
