Subject: Thermabind thread
Need your help...
Our library is investigating "thermabinding" (temporary heavy paper covers
with hot-glue in the spine) as a general solution to a very low binding
budget this coming year. However, when we called the company (address
below) to re-order paper covers, we were told that they are no longer
being produced. We do have an adequate supply for the time being but
don't want to get into a full-scale policy of using them if we can't
continue it for long.
We use a GBC 2000XT Therm-A-Bind machine, and covers by the same company:
General Binding Corporation
One GBC Plaza
Northbrook, IL 60062-4195
Can other libraries share their temporary binding methods with us
(preferably those most similar to what we use)? Or.... would someone out
there by any chance have surplus Therm-A-Bind covers they'd be willing to
Thanks for your help.
