Super Strong

Our patented self-configuring strips are the cornerstone of our revolutionary binding technique. A single thermal adhesive strip produces durable tape binding without the need for awkward stapling or infamous ‘time sapping’ ring binding.

Over time, there’s been questions leveled at our competitors in thermal binding, we know it!. these questions were always squarely aimed at the strength of the bind… they never got it right!
With our unique system, you dont have to worry about it! – The bind strength we produce can withstand a pull test of 25 kg on a single page. It’s super strong!

If you dont believe us, get in contact with us, we’ll give you a free demonstration!

Stacks Up

Put Simply, Fastbind Document solutions are built from the ground up to save you time, and therefore, save you money!, it STACKS UP! When you can bind a document in 20 seconds, compare that to conventional punch binding, when each document can take up to five minutes, you start to easily see the savings over time.

Our unique binding system allows for nice, neat stacking of books in piles too, you’d be surprised how much this helps over a massive stack! they also fit neatly into envelopes for posting.

The perfect binding solution…
