iBookBinding Starts Sales of a New Item: Plexiglas Book Cradle

We are glad to offer you a new category of items in our shop: Plexiglas/Acrylic book cradles. At the current moment, we have already added two versions of the cradle in two different sizes, but soon there will be more of them!

This is a project that has been quite long in the making and formerly was a part of the development of our book scanning frames. These products will also be updated with Plexiglas part quite soon, by the way.

There are two types of cradles at the moment: standard book cradle and a book cradle with a flat spine. You may see the difference shown in the photos below:

And here are the same cradles with books on them:

Default versions include cradles for books with pages sizes of around A5 and A4 (15×20 cm / 6″x8″ and 20×30 cm / 8″x12″, respectively.) Opening angles: 90º, 120º, and 150º. Flat spine width 2.5 cm / 1″.

However, as we always try to accommodate all the customers’ needs, these frames are customizable to other angles and sizes.

Soon we are adding more versions of book cradles, including inclined cradles that allow placing a book at an angle so that it would be better positioned for a viewer looking at a display at a museum or a fair. Along with that, we will update our book scanning sets as well.

And if you place an order this week, until the 20th of October, you qualify for our Halloween sale with a 20% discount on everything! (except for our merch, as a partner produces it)

All currently available Plexiglas/Acrylic book cradles can be found here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/iBookBindingStore?section_id=27286991
