Coming in August 2006…
High Speed, Fully Automated…

plastic coil and spiral wire binding machine! We’re pleased to announce the addition of a state-of-the-art Kugler-Womako binding machine. This equipment will allow us to offer completely automated and inline plastic coil and spiral wire binding. Book blocks can be automatically fed, trimmed, punched, and bound in one continuous operation. Collated books can be fed, punched, and bound. Many shops still handle plastic coil and spiral wire binding manually which is tedious and time consuming. We’re excited to offer plastic coil, spiral wire, and Wire-O® with speed, accuracy, and high quality. For more information, contact your sales service representative.

Another Bindery First
We were recently awarded what appeared to be a simple perfect bound job with matte film laminate on the cover. The covers turned out to be solid black (surprise!) and the matte film would mark just by looking at it. Once upon a time we would have gone back to the customer and suggested they go with gloss film or accept the marks in the matte film. Now we are pleased to offer a scuff-free matte film laminate. We expressed the laminate in, got the job done on time, and the finished product looks great. No scuffing. While supplies last, we'd be happy to send you a sample of the book with the scuff-free matte film laminate on the cover. Call TJ Manning for info.

Bindagraphics Lands
Sesame Street Project
We recently completed a project for Sesame Workshop, the makers of Sesame Street. This special DVD kit (called “Talk, Listen, Connect:  Helping families cope with Military Deployment”) is designed to teach young military children and their caregivers how to deal with a parent’s absence as a result of deployment.

The kit is a film-laminated, diecut DVD box folder that required folding, gluing the front super-panel, and converting the ¼ " capacity boxes. The converted pieces were then packed in cartons and shipped to numerous destinations. Total quantity for this job was 404,000 and was done on 18-point coated one-sided stock.

Thanks to our triple shift, round-the-clock operation, duplicity of equipment, and an impressive staff of dedicated, cross-trained operators, Bindagraphics’ was able to produce 40,000 of these capacity folders daily.

Another Postal Increase??
Be advised that the U.S. Postal Service has filed for yet another postage increase with the Postal Rate Commission. If passed, first-class postage would increase by 7.1%, standard postage by 9%, periodicals by 11.7%, and package services (including parcel post, bounded printed matter, library mail, and media mail) by 13.4%.
