All You Need to Know About Velo Binding

Thinking of finding a convenient and secure binding style, then why don’t you try Velo binding? Velo binding (strip binding) is a safe and conventional way of binding.

It is a one-of-a-kind binding. Velo binding gives your reports, proposals, and other instructions a professional, polished look, and it’s the best binding option for bigger, thicker booklets and handbooks.

What Is Velo Binding, And How Does It Work?

Velo binding is a type of document binding that uses a thin strip of plastic on the front and back of the paper. Tide points are melted together to the two thin plastic strips to keep it all together like a slender vice.

Velo binding is a cost-effective and simple approach to binding your books. Velobind is commonly used to bind pages together for wills, thesis or dissertations, briefs, judgments, manuals, and handbooks, among other important documents.

Likewise, its secure and tamper-proof system is ideal as a safety feature against altering documentation. This unique feature makes it the perfect choice for institutional and law industries.

In addition, being a fast, cheaper and reliable binding solution, it’s a perfect solution for self-publishers without pricey equipment or people who want the look and feel of conventional books.

How Is Velo Binding Done?

The strip binding technique uses a pin system, where regularly spaced holes are punched along the edges of the document or book pages. The binding is a plastic strip with plastic tines that resembles a lengthy comb.

The pronged strip is inserted upward through the corresponding holes in the pages. The tines are then run through another plastic strip with identically spaced holes.

The protruding tines are then cut off using a Hot Knife machine. The heat machine is used to trim off the tines, and the strips are melted together, making a secure and durable document bind.

What are the Velo binding strip varieties?

Strips come in various sizes and colours to fit your document size and aesthetics. The Velobind strips consist of one spine set with tines or pegs on it and a second spine with a corresponding identical hole where the tines fit.
