Box Presentation Folders

Box Presentation Folders As I mention in this video, we love multiple operation projects. The piece featured was made in six stages– done all in-house! The die cutting portion of this Document Box Folder project is pretty standard, followed by full-surface gluing of the panel. Choosing the right magnet for this capacity folder, however, was […]

Elastic Belt Book Embellishments

Elastic Belt Book Embellishments This week’s feature is a new type of embellishment for your casebound book project. For a recent job, we created a functional and modern book closure by sourcing elasticized fabric belts with quality interlocking buckles for fastening. We have noticed that although fewer books are being produced each year, the demand […]

Printed Rubber Band Book Binding

This clever book binding technique uses rubber bands, instead of glue or thread! We can source rubber bands in a wide range of widths and colours. Rubber bands can also be printed! The image above shows how the pages are notched near the spine. Elastic band book binding allows the end user to easily insert […]

No Spine Smyth Binding

No Spine Smyth Binding This Smyth-sewn book has no outside cover or spine! Notice how the printed signatures were planned so they would align to spell the company’s name. The majority of books in the past were Smyth sewn, but less costly methods of binding have become dominant. Only the finest books now are Smyth […]

OVERSIZED PERFECT BINDING

In this video, I show 3 different oversized perfect bound books. I’ve done a few videos in the past about our oversized perfect binding capabilities, but we’re pushing the size limit again! We can now perfect bind books that measure 20” from spine to face or 20” head to foot. We can also Smythe thread […]

3-Panel Pullout

You’ve probably seen a 1 or 2-panel pullout but have you ever seen a telescoping 3 or 4-panel pullout? If your customer needs a 3 or 4-panel pullout, we’re the bindery to call! We can do a single panel pullout completely automatically. Any additional panels are inserted manually. Pullout marketing pieces with 1, 2, 3 or […]

Three Piece Break Apart

The piece for this eblast is called a “three piece break apart.”  As illustrated the customer/user, bends the piece in the middle two ways and pulls the piece apart.  The “centre piece”, for example, could be a simple card, it is removed from the two “halves!”  We can produce these pieces in quantities from hundreds […]

Double Spine Bound Books

Double spine bound books!  I confess I’ve never seen a book bound in this style before.  This “double spine binding style”, could be bound by any style of mechanical binding…plasticoil, wire-o, cerlox (Americans refer to this style as “comb binding”), spiral wire, or “rolla-bind”.  Binding this style of binding using the perfect binding method would in […]

Multi Cavity Box

I think this piece is fascinating.  When I first saw this, I thought it was a giant book, but as you can see it is a multi-cavity box.  It took us awhile to figure out how to produce this complex box which requires various board thickness, somewhat extensive die-cutting, hand wrapping…the time required to make […]
