Perfectback Strip

The Fastback 20 allows you to make a perfect bound book with a wide variety of cover stocks. Covers can be offset, ink-jet, or laser printed. Even covers with heat-sensitive inks or toner-based digital printing may be used.

Perfectback LF Strips

The LF strips create a book bind that lays flat when opened — hence, the name LF. The spine hinges free from your book block. The book opens easily without creasing the spine. And you can do the final binding without heat so you can use printing methods and cover materials that are heatsensitive. These strips have two narrow bands of release paper, one on each side of the back of the strip.

Standard lengths: 11”, A4

Perfectback PS Strips

PS strips have a pressure sensitive adhesive for assembling books — this is why they are called PS strips. The entire spine of the cover is permanently bound to the book block. Final binding is done without heat so you can use cover materials or printing methods that are heat sensitive without worry. These strips have a narrow and a wide band of release paper on the back of the strip.

Standard lengths: 11”, A4

Perfectback TA Strips

The TA strips bind your wraparound cover with a temperature activated adhesive — thus, the name TA strips. As with the binding of your book block, final binding of the cover is done on a Fastback® model 20 binder. Your cover is bound entirely to the spine of your book block. Heat sensitive cover materials or printing are not suitable for this method. TA strips can be identified by the single piece of release paper on the back of the strip.

CP Strip & LX-Studio Strip
