The Fastback binding system provides a revolutionary new way to bind documents, books, reports, presentations and even yearbooks. In fact, a Fastback machine can be used in so many different ways and can save most schools so much money that no school library should be without one. This article will identify five reasons that your school library should consider owning a Fastback Binding System.

1.Book Repair: The Parker Fastback 15xs binding machine is a great option for schools that are looking to repair damaged soft cover and hard cover books. You can use a Fastback system to add a new wrap around printed cover to a soft cover book. You can also rebind the contents of a hard cover book and place them in a new hard case or glue them in the old hard cover. Many school libraries also use their Fastback Binding machine to strengthen the bind on their trade paperback books. By running every paperback through a binding cycle before it is placed on the shelf, you can in many cases double the shelf life of these books. School libraries spend a huge amount of money every year replacing paperback books that are worn out and have pages coming out. The fastback binding system can help you save on some of those costs.

2.Downloadable Content: More and more providers of school curriculum and book publishers are offering access to websites with downloadable content. With a Fastback binding system you can quickly and easily turn those downloads, e-books, curriculum supplements and other materials in to printed bound documents. This is a great way provide an added service to your teachers and your students. These materials can be printed and bound on demand and can easily be added as volumes to your collection for use in future years.

3.Yearbook Creation: For small and medium sized schools, the cost of having an outside service print and bind a yearbook for you can be astronomical. In fact, the cost is so high that many smaller schools simply don’t produce yearbooks. However, with a Powis Parker Fastback binding system you can have students print and bind their own yearbooks. Many schools have successfully turned the production, printing and binding of their yearbook into a leadership development project for their students. The cost savings of producing the yearbook in house will usually pay for the equipment the first year and offer substantial savings in following years.

4.Student Publishing: Having a Fastback Binding machine in your school makes it easier than ever for students and classes to publish their own bound and printed books. Many schools around the world already use Fastback to allow their students to publish their own poems, short stories, essays and reports. These written works can be published with tape binding, perfect binding or can even be added to a hard cover book or anthology. Some of your classes may even decide to publish their own book as a fund raiser to sell to the parents.

5.Out of Print Materials: With a Fastback binding system libraries can have a whole new world opened up to them when it comes to out of print or public domain materials. Librarians can download, print and bind books that are in the public domain, rare, out-of-print or super specialized. These books can be bound and printed for addition to your library’s collection.
