How to use the brochure
A brochure, or binding machine, is needed for the created printed document to become not only presentable, but also convenient to handle, because the sheets stitched in the brochure do not disintegrate. Often these machines are used by office employees, so that their reports, presentations and other documents have a neat appearance.
Varieties of brochures
The binding machine will allow you to punch holes of different shapes from a circle to a rectangle on the edges of paper sheets. This block with sheets is then put on the spring. There are several varieties of brochures:
- working with plastic springs;
- working with metal springs;
- combined or universal brochure.
Manual for the manual brochure
Place the machine on a table or a cabinet. Prepare documents or a sheet of sheets, which will need to be sealed with springs. Do not forget to prepare also crusts which become a cover for your brochure, it can be cardboard or transparent plastic covers. Remember that after installing the spring to the document, it will no longer be possible to add sheets.
First, holes are made in the document itself, i.e. perforated sheets. After that, similar actions are performed with transparent or cardboard sheets (covers). If the document has more than 25 sheets (with a paper thickness of not more than 125 grams per cubic meter), it is recommended to divide it into several parts and perforate each part separately, while strictly observing the boundaries of the perforation.
To bind, you need to take a plastic or metal spring, depending on what kind of binder you have. If a metal spring is used in the brochure, which is much stronger than a plastic one, remember that it is impossible to remove the sheets sealed by it from the brochure. But when a bookbinder with a plastic spring is used, then after the binding it will be possible, if necessary, to add sheets, opening the spring, however, while its appearance is significantly spoiled.
The choice of the size of the spring is based on the number of sheets, after which it is put on the comb of the brochure and opens (unclenched). Then, in each dent, the sheets of the document are inserted: first the cover, then the document itself, then the second cover and the springs are closed. Thus, on the way out you get a nice and presentable document that you will not be ashamed to hand over to your boss or your business partners. In addition, bookbinding machines are very often used by students to design diploma projects or coursework.
