BOOKLETS (Thermal Bind) - Quick & Short Run
Thermal bind books are similar to perfect bind books. It does not require the creation of holes in the pages or the insertion of a spine. Binding equipment is used to position and heat plastic or tape strips so that the pages of the document are securely bound into a solid volume. When a front and back cover is added to the pages, the thermal binding creates a finished look that is produced at very little cost. Because of the secure hold created with thermal binding, any books or booklets assembled with this binding method can be opened and laid flat. This is especially helpful with workbooks or other types of study material. Readers can lay the book completely flat if necessary, making it possible to use the hands for other purposes such as taking notes or highlighting passages. At the same time, there are no worries of damaging the book in some manner, such as accidentally breaking the spine.

Gloss Coated Paper Very smooth Vibrant color Difficult to write on Gloss Coated Paper provides a lot of shine, which results in a higher contrast and color gamut than other papers. This coating is good for full color images where the color needs to “pop”. This coating gives a very nice finish and professional look for marketing materials or any other kinds of prints that want to show off the color.
Matte Coated Paper Smooth Softer color Okay to write on Matte Coated Paper has a light coating that provides a boost to the contrast to images, but results in little glare. The matte coating provides a smoother presentation than an uncoated sheet, and softer than the appearance of a glossy sheet. Matte sheets are good for enhancing visual designs with a more subdued layout and color set without having a lot of glare which glossy coatings suffer from.
Uncoated Paper Porous Warmer color Easy to write on Uncoated Paper has no extra coating or paper finishing. Since there is no coating, there is no glare on the surface. This makes it ideal for prints that have a lot of text or reading materials. Since there is no coating, this is the most porous paper, which is the best for smudge-less writing with the widest range of pens and pencils when compared to the other finishes. All bond stock paper is uncoated.
Quick Tips Cover means cardstock (thick paper). Text or Bond or Book means paper (not as thick as cardstock). C2S indicates coated on two sides. C1S indicates coated on one side.
