Making a Hard Cover - Fastbind Express Plus

Transcript: Using the Fastbind Express Plus and the provided tools, you can make a custom hardcover book with only one machine.

Use the machine in a condensed setup, or open the sides to create slightly larger books.

To make a hardcover, first align the left guide to the center line. Use the provided allen wrench to tighten it in place.

Then, take your spine board and loosely trap it between both guides. Tighten the right guide into place.

Using the Fastbind Express Plus and the provided tools, you can make a custom hardcover book with only one machine.

Use the machine in a condensed setup, or open the sides to create slightly larger books.

To make a hardcover, first align the left guide to the center line. Use the provided allen wrench to tighten it in place.

Then, take your spine board and loosely trap it between both guides. Tighten the right guide into place.

Next, use the yellow strip on the machine to align your page guides and use the bone tool to score your cover.

Remove the release liner from your tacking sheet. Next, use the scored marks you just created to align the sheet to the machine. Bring down the clamp when it is aligned.

Insert your spine board between the guides and onto the sheet. Next, slide the chipboard along the clamp and against the spine spacers. Place the board down. Do this with the other board.

Now, slide the project out from under the clamp, and lift the clamp. Insert strips of paper between the chipboard.

Next, using scissors, cut the corners at a 45 degree angle, 3 millimeters from the corner of the chip board. Do this on all sides.

Slide the project up, and against the edge of the cover. Give it a quick rub, then slide it into the press. Remove, and repeat on the opposite side--rubbing the edge, inserting the end into the press, and removing.

Now, press on the corners of the tacking sheet that have not been pressed down. Do this on all four corners and the center areas.

Then rub the edge and insert the other two ends into the press.

To finish the cover, use the roller to smooth the sheet firmly to the chipboard. For an even better finish, insert the cover into a roll laminator at 100 degrees fahrenheit.

With our cover now complete, we can now use the same machine to insert our pages and complete our book.

Before we bind our hardcover book using the Fastbind Express Plus, first make sure you have booster end sheets.

Take your pages and place an end sheet on with the release liner out. Make sure the end sheet is oriented properly for the spine of your book. Place one on both ends.

Next, place a magnet guide against the first tooth on the Express plus. Set your pages against the teeth--with the spine side closest to you-- and align your pages.

Now, take the provided Rapid K1 Stapler, insert it between the first teeth, and staple. Continue stapling between every tooth until the entire project is stapled together.

With the pages complete, next take your cover and place the spine against the teeth of the machine. Use the first guide to secure the side. Open the cover and properly insert your pages. Next, take the second guide with the extra lip and press it against the cover. This will hold the pages properly against the spine of the book.

Center the pages to the cover and peal back the release liner half way.

Close the cover, making sure to align the corners. Press it down.

Now, flip the book over and place the second guide back into position to hold the pages against the spine of the cover. Peal the release liner half way, align the corners of your cover, and press the cover down.

Next, reach inside and with the cover closed, pull out the release liners.

As a final step, rub the end sheets to ensure they have been effectively tacked to the cover, especially closest to the spine.

You now have a completed hardcover book.

Making a Photo Book - Fastbind Express Plus

Transcript: We are now going to use the Fastbind Express Plus to create a photo book, using the provided fotomount attachment.

First, lift the clamp and insert the fotomount attachment into the two rectangular holes. Be sure to push the attachment back into its furthest position in those slots.

For best results, place on a thin magnet to the right side of the attachment. Use a sheet as a guide to select the proper placement for your project.

With your full printed sheets, first align them to the teeth of the machine and fold them in half. Use the provided bone tool to crease the page. Do this on ...

We are now going to use the Fastbind Express Plus to create a photo book, using the provided fotomount attachment.

First, lift the clamp and insert the fotomount attachment into the two rectangular holes. Be sure to push the attachment back into its furthest position in those slots.

For best results, place on a thin magnet to the right side of the attachment. Use a sheet as a guide to select the proper placement for your project.

With your full printed sheets, first align them to the teeth of the machine and fold them in half. Use the provided bone tool to crease the page. Do this on all your pages.

With all your pages folded, now take an end sheet. The end sheets are all marked with a circle on the release liner. When you peal the liner off, make sure to orientate the arrows toward you.

Align the end sheet to the farthest step on the fotomount attachment.

Place the magnets on to the end of the sheet to secure the project. You will notice there is a thin strip where there is no tacking blue.

Take your first page and align it with the "head is to the left." The top of your pages should always be oriented to the left. Then place the spine of the page against the fotomount attachment. This time, align the page against the grey step. It will slightly overlap the end of the end sheet. This should also be the case for the other side.

Now take a tacking sheet. Notice this one does not have the circles. Peal off the release liner with the arrows pointing toward you and place it against the wall and onto the project.

All tacking sheets should align to the outer guide.

Peal off the other release liner.

Now we repeat the process with all pages. Orient the pages with the head to the left, align the page to the grey guide on the wall, and place the page onto the tacking sheet. All pages are aligned against the grey guide.

Place on your next tacking sheet, making sure the arrows are pointed toward you. Again, this aligns to the farthest blue guide. Peal the liner, and continue to place on your pages using the appropriate guides.

With all the pages on, finish the project with another end sheet. Again, the end sheets will be labeled with a circle. Peal off the release liner and place on the end sheet against the blue guide.

Next, take your project to a stack cutter and trim the three sides, excluding the spine of the pages.

With the pages trimmed, now take your cover and place the spine against the teeth of the machine. Use the magnet guides to help secure it in place.

Properly orientate the pages to your cover and place them in. Use the second guide to properly push the pages against the spine of the cover.

Center the pages to the cover and peal back the release liner half way.

Close the cover, making sure to align the corners. Press it down.

Now, flip the book over and place the second guide back into position to hold the pages against the spine of the cover. Peal the release liner half way, align the corners of your cover, and press the cover down.

Next, reach inside and with the cover closed, pull out the release liners.

Rub the end sheets to ensure they have been effectively tacked to the cover, especially closest to the spine.

You have now created a photo book.
