Custom Book Shapes
The product I’m featuring this week is two parts: PMC / high die shaping and board book binding. They don’t have to go together, but the combination of the two processes really is impressive.
The books I show in the video, like all board books, have square spines. This type of binding involves cutting printed press sheets (only printed on one side) into 4 pagers, which are then folded and glued back to back. The double-thick signatures are then gathered and then either trimmed on a traditional cutter or PMC / high die cut. The finished product is a super smooth edged, custom shaped book!
Our facility houses several PMC / high die shaping machines that can cut sizes up to 9” x 11”. Our PMC / high die machines can cut books that are saddle stitched, perfect bound, board books and pads. Consider adding PMC / high die shaping as the final step of your next book project.
As always, if you need a sample, please ask!
