Thermal binding systems provide a wonderful choice when it comes to binding your documents. You will not have to deal with punching a stack of papers, cutting wire, or crimping plastic. This is a very simple binding process and will go very quickly. Plus, when looking for durability and longevity, you've got it with thermal binding.

With thermal binding systems, a cover with an adhesive spine is placed over your document. Then, you will you a thermal press to both hold your document together and heat the glue. As the glue heats, your document will fuse to the cover. Then, let it cool. Some machines have cooling areas that help your document cool fast. You will be amazed at how easy it is to use thermal binding systems and how great-looking your document will become.

Something that I really like about thermal binding machines is that you can put many different kinds of covers on them. Since you are using glue, you don't have to have a cover that is easy to punch holes in. You can use something thicker. In addition, if your cover has a picture, you don't have to worry about the picture getting distorted because you had to punch holes. Thermal binding is what it used on soft-cover books.

Types of Thermal Binding Systems

When you are in the market for a thermal binding system, you will need to evaluate the demands of your binding. If you have a high volume of binding, get a machine that can do a lot in a short amount of time and with the least amount of effort required by you. This will allow you to get other work done. However, if you have a very low volume of binding, save yourself some money and get a basic system.
