More perfect than perfect (bound)!

admin Lay-Flat Paper

As a printer I’m sure you will have had the odd complaint that a perfect bound job has been rejected due to image loss in the spine, a spread obscured within the spine, cracked spines and loose pages… the list goes on.

So, where do you go from here? Do you re-create the job as a spoilt work, or refund the client for the percentage damaged? In the meantime, you lose your credibility, reputation and potentially the customer.

Alternatively, you could educate your sales team and let them know about Mazina lay-flat paper. Allowing them to get their foot ‘back in the door’ so-to-speak as Mazina lay-flat paper can guarantee none of these problems will ever re-occur. 

Mazina lay-flat paper utilises a patented FlexBind® technology. The FlexBind® lay flat solution is the most versatile technology for making the widest range of lay flat books. Virtually any size and thickness can be made without any investment in new equipment.

Don’t just take our word for it, below, is a really nice testimonial we recently received from a customer, Booked Images, who produce exquisite, high quality digitally printed lay-flat books.

A bit more about the FlexBind® technology: it includes a flexible, innovative, toner-receptive hinge into high-quality papers that can be used for a variety of books; Photobooks, Wedding albums, Portfolios, Pitch books, Architect portfolio books, Cookbooks and Memorial books for example.

Leaving your customers to enjoy a full panoramic spread, without losing the image in the gutter. You can see an example of this in the Architect’s book sample below.

You will find all the digital sheet sizes, weights and stock options (all of which are off the shelf and can be delivered within days of ordering) in the ‘Transeo Media Printers Guide’. However, if the quantity is high enough to justify, bespoke orders can be made on either sheets or reels.
