Here are two examples of customer-driven innovation that happens at iBookBinding. Tools that are assembled like a puzzle aren't something new for us. This happens because our printers aren't large enough. But this time we went even further.
Last Friday, I had to make some paper to test recently designed and printed papermaking molds with the Japanese wave pattern. One of the molds was a novelty for our shop — it's designed to make A6-sized sheets of paper.
It's time to announce a major addition to our section punching tools collection. Major as in huge, because this tool is massive! We've been quiet during the winter holidays. But now it's time to share something special with you!
I often get asked: what is the quality of the scans made with our book scanning system? Here are some samples made with my smartphone Samsung Galaxy S9. In the samples, the right part is approximately 4x magnified.
The launch of our new section punching tool was a blast! First, it was warmly welcomed by our Instagram followers, and then the orders just continued to come every day! Here are only a few of the recent orders.
As most of our 3d-printed tools may be adjusted for almost any client's needs, some of the changes are implemented for the standard versions on the product as well. That's why we add many new sizes to our bookbinder's gauges.
I've made this short video to show during bookbinding shows and fairs, as it answers all the major questions in just 30 seconds. However, I was a bit slow to share it. Don't know why. In this post, you'll find this video =)
Like our corner cutting jigs? Well, what's not to like—we make them in multiple sizes allowing you to adapt to almost any cardboard you may use for your book's covers. Now we offer you a metal version of the same tool!
We are happy to announce that we moved to a newer version of our corner cutting jigs. From now on they will be delivered to our customers with sizes inscribed on the surface. This works both for dimensions in mm and inches.
Our collection of book scanning frames now includes one more size designed for miniature books. We cover almost everything from small, for books up to 13x18 cm, and up to extra large that can accommodate tomes as large as 28x36 cm.
