A modern office is hard to imagine without helpers such as a booklet maker or laminator. They greatly facilitate work, allowing you to work with convenient compact staples, to protect important documents from dust and moisture. For the smooth operation of these mechanisms, you need high-quality "fuel" - the right consumables.
Thermal covers for binding
Unlike the documentation in a binder , the beautifully bound documentation has an elegant finish. For thermal binding of small runs, plastic or cardboard thermal covers of various thicknesses, from 1 to 18 mm, are used. There is a combined option, when a cardboard cover is chosen for the bottom, and a plastic cover for the top.
The contents of the folder are clearly visible through the transparent plastic. The multi-colored cardboard allows you to identify the contents even from a distance. The textured embossing of the cover for the binding gives the brochures an original and elegant look. Thick cardboard covered with leatherette can extend the durability of such a brochure for many years.
A layer of glue is applied to the end of the thermal covers, which melts when heated in the brochure and thus bonds the sheets from the inserted block. The stitching is beautiful, neat and tough, like a book.
Stitching Springs
The main technical characteristics of binding springs are such properties as curl, bend, displacement just like other art material. The following aspects are no less important:
Manufacturing material, color and quality of the coating - spirals are plastic and metal. Metal springs are colored by the nylon covering they are wrapped around like a stocking, while plastic springs are colored by the material they are made of.
The integrity of the nylon cover determines the presentability of the metal spring and the binding as a whole. However, some technologies are such that they do not allow to abandon small notches, almost invisible to the eye. Large cracks are abnormalities, obvious defects, and are considered unacceptable.
Pitch - the number of hooks per inch: for calendars, for example, use a 3: 1 pitch, for thicker staples, 2: 1.
Diameter - when compressed, determines the thickness of the paper stack. It is important that the compression is optimal, as deviation from the norm will negatively affect the quality of the stitching. A spring that is too tightly compressed will impair opening, and a poorly compressed spring can cause the sheets to fall out.

Speaking about the quality of the spring, they most often mean the justification of the hopes placed on it and the funds spent on its acquisition. The value for money depends on the manufacturer and brand of the wire from which the spring is made. The most expensive springs for a brochure made in Germany, spirals from China and Korea belong to the cheaper price segment.
Film for paper lamination
Lamination is a great way to keep your document looking original and aesthetically pleasing. There are three types of transparencies:
Glossy - used mainly for colorful printing and color photographs, emphasizing the brightness and richness of the color palette.
Matte - used for laminating documents containing text. Glare free is perfect for protecting badges, badges, business cards and other products.
Texture - various textures imitating sand, crystals or frosty patterns, perfect for book covers and other printed materials.
Depending on the quality of the material from which the lamination film is made , its thickness, curl, elasticity, transparency, and even air permeability will vary.
Roll and batch laminator requires different film formats - roll or bag type. Roll film is most often used for industrial scale production, and batch film - for small or one-time jobs.
According to the method of application, lamination is divided into two types - cold and hot. Hot lamination is done under pressure at high temperature. Cold film application is limited to one roll pressure, without heating the adhesive.
