Why should I use a Booklet Maker?

Do you create a lot of booklets? If so, it’s time you considered using a booklet maker. Here are three reasons why….

  1. To save time. Binding booklets by hand is one of the most time-consuming jobs out there, especially if you have many documents you need to assemble. After all, you not only have to write the copy, design the pages and cover, and print out the document, you’ll need to fold the pages and staple them together. This can take up a good portion of your workday and it can also be tiring, especially if you don’t have a good stapler. However, using a booklet maker can save you a lot of time and reduce the likelihood of fatigue. There are machines on the market that can process hundreds of documents per hour. Some devices can even bind more than 2,000 booklets in the same amount of time.
  2. Versatility and ease of use. The vast majority of booklet makers are extremely versatile. They can usually handle different sizes of paper and sometimes have adjustable stapling heads so you can fasten your pages together with as many staples as you need. Also, there are a lot of devices that can be used just to fold paper, which will come in handy if you ever need to prepare a lot of documents for mailing. And best of all, most booklet makers are really easy to use, so you can create professional-looking documents without a lot of practice.
  3. There are a lot to choose from. Finally, there are some great booklet makers available so you’ll definitely be able to find one that’s perfect for your particular needs. Some brand names you should look for are Formax, Standard, Akiles, and MBM. These companies have made their mark in the office machine world because they manufacture the best booklet makers in addition to binding machines, laminators, and paper shredders. There are booklet makers available at a variety of price points and there are both small and large machines, so it will be easy to choose one that’s right for you.

Can I use wire with my comb binding machine?
Krish Technologies posted this on Jul 22, 2015

< Over the years, a number of customers have asked me whether they can use twin loop wire with their plastic comb binding machine. These customers often don’t want to have to buy a brand new machine but like the look and feel of twin loop wire binding. However, the answer to their question isn’t as simple as it seems. You see, they actually do make twin loop wire that is designed to work with the plastic comb binding hole pattern. With that said, if you want to use these wires you are going to need a way to close the wires. What is Spiral-O Wire? Let me explain a little bit more…There is a product that we carry called Spiral-O Wire. This wire has 19 loops and is designed to work with the hole pattern from a plastic comb binding machine. Spiral-O Wire is sometimes called Wire Combs or Ibico Wire and was originally designed for use with some of the older Ibico binding machines. A number of the older Ibico plastic comb binding machines also included a twin loop wire closer on the front of them to allow users to use both plastic combs and wire. This 19 loop wire was designed for this purpose. What Equipment is Needed? As the Ibico brand has been phased out by GBC and all of the older Ibico plastic binding machines have been replaced with new models, they no longer have the twin loop wire closer on the front of them. This presents a problem in trying to use these spiral-o wires since you can’t use the wires without a way to close them. One of the only options left is to purchase a Twin Loop wire closer. However, since twin loop wire closers are not incredibly cheap this option usually only appeals to users who have larger electric plastic comb binding machines. Otherwise, it is often advisable to simply buy a low end 3:1 pitch twin loop wire binding machine (the supplies are cheaper). This being said, if you have one of the older Ibico binding machines that has a wire closer included you are in luck. The Spiral-O binding supplies that we carry will work perfectly with your machine and you will be able to use both plastic combs and wire depending on your needs. These Spiral-O binding supplies are available in Black, Silver, White, Blue and Red and in sizes up to 1″ in diameter. If you aren’t sure what type of wire binding supplies that you need to work with your machine simply give us a call. Our trained sales representatives will be glad to help you find the correct supplies for use with your machine.(Read More)
