MBM AutoBook Automatic Booklet Maker Review
Automatic booklet makers can be really handy when you need to create your own pamphlets in a hurry. One device that can do just that is the AutoBook by South Carolina-based manufacturer MBM. Here's what you should know about this product so you can determine if this is the booklet maker you need.
The AutoBook is a great machine to use if you need to quickly make a lot of booklets. This device can make up to 500 books in just one hour which is much, much faster than trying to bind your documents manually.
This machine is compatible with paper ranging in size from 8.25" x 10" to 12" x 17". It can easily accommodate both letter- and legal-sized sheets for your convenience. The feed tray can hold up to 15 sheets at once, which isn't very much. Thus, you'll be having to feed more paper into it constantly if you're making a lot of booklets.
The booklets you create with this device can be up to 60 pages long. Whether they're large or small, they'll come out looking great because the AutoBook has an automatic paper centering feature. This ensures all of your documents will be processed the way they should be.
The AutoBook is easy to use because it already has 6 booklet sizes programmed into it. This makes it easy to pick the right size for your documents. If you want to get creative, you can program 6 custom sizes into the device.
This device has two modes: manual and automatic. You can use whichever mode you feel the most comfortable with when making your booklets. Whichever mode you choose, operation will be easy because the device has push-button controls, as well as a timer. There's even a counter to help you keep track of where you are in the process.
The AutoBook has dual staple heads that can be aligned in 5 different positions. This machine can hold up to 100 staples at once so you won't need to replenish the supply very often.
If space is limited, you'll be glad to know that the AutoBook is pretty compact. It only measures 17.5" (depth) x 22" (width) x 6.5" (height) so it won't take up very much room at all. And it's not too heavy, weighing in at just 53 pounds.
This machine is durably constructed and features metal parts. It comes with a 1-year warranty that excludes wearables.
Overall, the MBM AutoBook is a pretty good booklet maker. It's great that it's compatible with different sizes of paper. (This will allow you to use just the right size of paper for your documents.) The 6 preprogrammed sizes are convenient and the whole thing is easy to operate. (It's also nice and compact.) The 15-sheet tray capacity could be improved, however. But other than that, this is a good product. If you're interested in the AutoBook, be sure to take a look at it today so you can create your own booklets.
