Ibis targets newspaper binding

Ibis has launched a new Smart Binder X for the newspaper market. The new system has been stretched to increase maximum booklet format size to 18 x 11 inches.  It can therefore be used to produce A5 portrait booklets 2-up – at up to 10,000 books per hour – using the optional trimmer centre-knife – or to produce tabloid sized newspapers 1-up.
John Cracknell, Managing Director of Ibis, said: “It is also an ideal solution for tabloid size production newspaper production, which can be produced with variable page content and with the option of wire stitch or cold glue binding, or no binding. Newspaper ‘sections’ may be collected together into finished newspapers on the Ibis SB-X delivery and an optional final knife-folder if available, if needed.”





Syndicate content

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
