Special Form Cut Index
I recently did a video about how we make step indexes on perfect bound books by trimming the face edge of book pages. We recently had a customer ask for us to cut a special form cut index on a run of Smyth sewn books. This appealing and smooth type of index is a combination of a single 90 degree step cut from the outside and a rounded cut on the inside.
We can do a full range of step index cutting:
• Form cut
• Full step cutting
• Corner step cutting
• Single Bank
• Double Bank
Unlike standard index cutting, custom form cutting is done on a different machine. This machine can do the rounded edges and creates a smooth and more durable index edge.
Does your customer need index cutting on their perfect bound or Smyth sewn books? Please give us a call to talk about standard step cutting, corner cutting and custom form cutting.
