ItemSpecifications

* Please Note: This kit may take up to 10 additional business days to ship due to the manufacturing of the hard cover.

**Imprint Details: If you choose to customize your hardcovers with foil imprint or full color printing, you will need to provide digital graphic files to make the imprinting process possible. The provided graphic files must meet common desktop publishing standards such as minimum image resolution and proper color for your desired type of imprint. A foil imprint will be placed on the front cover, and will occupy a 20 square inch area (5"x4"). Additional custom imprint sizes and positions are available at additional cost. Choosing a full color printing option will place your graphic design across the entire outer cover. Our customer service experts will be happy to help you if you are unfamiliar with digital file requirements or any questions you may have regarding the customization of your hardcovers. Please expect at least 2 weeks for custom printed hardcovers to be produced in addition to shipping time.

This is the Pro-Bind 2000 Thermal Binding Machine!

There are two main features other than it’s durability. One is that it has a 2 inch binding capacity. The other is the binding length—long enough for even legal size books.

Before starting, make sure you have the correct size covers for your page amounts. As you can see from this guide, my book is very small.

Next, open your thermal binding cover.  Observe the glue strip in the center—you always want your pages within the width of this.  You can see it easier on this hardcover. Make sure your pages do not exceed past this width. At the same time, your pages should not be too few for the cover size.

But it’s a simple as jogging your pages evenly together and inserting them against the glue strip. Close the book up, jog the pages again, and while holding the pages still insert the spine of your book into the machine.

Give it another tap down so the pages are against the glue and insert it in.  Since I am making a soft cover, I will push the soft cover button.  This cycle took closer to a minute until it beeped notifying that it was finished. It’s important to then tap the pages down one last time and put it in the cooling rack, this way the pages are always in the glue until it hardens.

If you’re not filling the space with multiple books, then you are not taking full advantage of this machine. Here I can make 9 small books at once.

If you want to make hard covers, than this is a great machine. Again, jog your pages, align them evenly, tap them in place and insert the spine of your book into the machine.  Push the hardcover button and wait for the machine to finish. This book took over two minutes.

When it’s done remove the book and give it another tap, but instead of placing the book into the cooling tray, you’ll want to immediately place it into a hard cover crimper to hold the binding closed and to ensure all the glue stick to your pages.

Now we have some beautiful and durable soft covered books, and hardcover books.  Better yet you can purchase completely customized covers just for you, but you do have to call us to set that up.

This is the Pro-Bind Hard Cover Crimper!

After completing a hardcover heat cycle in you thermal binding machine, jog the pages down and immediately insert your hard cover into this crimper—of course I’m going to explain why.

As you can see, push on the handle to open the crimper and insert your book.

The crimper is rounded on both ends to create a nice finish on the spine of your book.

You can adjust the back by pulling it out and repositioning it in the other slots.

Now you can crimp up to two inch thick books!

A good portion of hardcovers have three lines of glue. The one in the center holds all your pages in, and the two side ones helps hold the covers together.

If you only had one strip in the center then your binding would open and expose the glued ends, but the side strips help close the spine and support the binding. (The crimper makes sure the book hardens this way).

Here is a finished book, with nicely rounded and crimped ends, and you can see that the glue is hidden and the covers and spine are nicely supported.

Questions & Answers
Q:
Some of your hard covers come with a punched-in window. Is that window simply a hole, or is it covered from behind with a transparent plastic sheet of some kind?
Asked by Malek
A:
Thank you for your question. The window in the covers is just a open space and doesn't not have anything in them, it is not covered with a clear plastic.

Q:
My questions pertain to the customized imprint on the hard cover. To whom should the customized imprint be submitted (what is the email address)? Is the cost of the customized imprint included in the total of $1633? If not, how much is it?
Asked by Malek
A:
Thank you for your questions. The Pro-Bind 2000 Hardcover Binding Starter Kit does have the option to include a foil stamp of up to 4" x 5", if you select the color of foil you want it will show the cost for selected quantity with the stamp. There is also a option for covers without a impression that would lower the cost. The price automatically updates as you select options from the drop down menus. If you place the order through the website a rep will reach out you email to collect your artwork. If you need assistance in getting the order set up please give us a call at 1-800-944-4573.
