This was a year of hard work, great weariness, constant experiments, and achievement. I can't say that iBookBinding faced many challenges, but I personally had my fair share of them. It was a fantastic year. However, I'm glad to start a new one.
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.
We've been asked to add this item to our stock for quite a long time. And finally, that moment came. From now on, we offer this signature punching cradle with a guide for an awl at our Etsy shop.
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.
What I truly love about bookbinding (woodworking, other crafts) is that there is always a chance to experiment, find some new tricks, small hacks and create strange jigs. Currently I’m working on a couple of large boxes (for dolls) designed to resemble books. The project brought me a lot of fun, and I plan to share all of it in time =) Continue reading →
