People are always impressed by hardcover documents whether it’s a new novel from a best-selling author or a year-end financial report. Typically, you need to use a thermal binding machine in order to create hardcover books since most of the covers available for punch-and-bind methods are either made out of thin paper or plastic. However, you can instead choose to use Akiles Klassik covers. Here is some information about these covers and how to use them:
- Klassik covers are 8.75” x 11.25” and they can be used with documents of any length. They have a traditional cloth-like finish and are available in three colors: maroon, navy, and black.
- These covers can be used with the following binding methods: plastic comb, coil, wire, and GBC ZipBind and ProClick. They can also be used with three-ring binders. However, since the covers are fairly thick you can’t punch them with your modular punch or binding machine. You need to have the covers pre-punched before you can use them. Also, if you want to give your Klassic covers a special look, they can be foil stamped and/or have windows cut into them.
- When you are ready to bind, just add front and back covers to your document. Make sure your binding implement is large enough to accommodate the pages and covers, while still allowing the pages to turn freely. Bind the document as you normally would. That’s all there is to it.
Using Akiles Klassik covers is easy. Just remember that they need to be punched ahead of time so you don’t subject your binding machine or modular punch to unnecessary wear and tear. Good luck and happy binding!
