  Product Features Specifications

Image Strip



Image Strips
An Image Strip is a Powis thermal binding strip that has an image printed on it. This image can consist of photographs, vector art, and/or various color specifications. The strip is wider along the front edge to allow for a larger graphic element on the cover of the document. Image Strips comes in three styles: Theme, Branded, and Custom. Each has advantages, and each will appeal to a different customer need.

For use with the: Fastback 9

Perfectback Strip

Perfectback Strips
The Perfectback® binding strips add perfect binding to your Fastback® 15xs binder's capabilities. You can use a wide variety of cover stocks to create the document look you want. Covers can be offset, ink-jet, or laser printed. Even covers with heat-sensitive inks or toner-based digital printing may be used.

Perfectback® Lay Flat (LF) Strip
The LF strip is best choice when the book must lay open when it is placed on a table. This patented binding strip is designed to allow the book block to hinge freely from the spine, much like a hard cover book. You get a book that opens easily without creasing or damaging the title surface of your spine. It is an ideal choice for technical manuals, cookbooks, sheet music, or anywhere you need a book that can stay open hands-free to a specific page. With the LF strip, the wraparound cover is not thermally bound to the book block, so you can use heat-sensitive cover materials without worry.

Perfectback® Pressure Sensitive (PS) Strip
PS strips have a pressure sensitive adhesive to bind the book block to the cover. As with the LF strips, you may use heat-sensitive printing methods and cover materials for your wraparound covers. The entire spine is permanently attached to the book block. The PS strip is a good choice when you are using covers that cannot be subjected to heat.

Perfectback® Temperature Activated (TA) Strip
The TA strip binds a wraparound cover to the book block using the same adhesive that is binding the book block. The final step is done in the Fastback® binder, permanently attaching the spine of the book block to the cover. Covers using heat-sensitive inks, or digitally printed covers are not recommended for this product. The TA strip is the quickest way to create a durably bound book.

For use with the: Fastback 15xs
 Scoring Machine

Strips are available in three widths: Narrow, Medium, and Wide (up to 350 sheets), and lengths including 11" and A4. Powis Parker can also provide custom lengths. There are three types of Perfectback binding strips, giving you a range of binding options.
