The new Fastbind Express Mini is a new, ultra-compact, portable bookbinding station. Make beautiful hardcover books quickly and easily, up to 12”x12” format. The Express Mini is an excellent choice for small binding needs for any office, copy shop or photo lab.
Express Mini is a versatile compact entry-level solution including tools for creasing, stapling, mounting photo books and more. One of the applications of this versatile device is the FotoMount process.
You use the Express Mini first to fold and crease your printed spreads. Then, you mimick the FotoMount process by alternating a tacking mounting sheet and a printed spread with a special end paper at the front and back of the content block.
You can use any material for your prints, including photographic paper, card or laminated paper and you always obtain a premium photo book that opens flat with a edge-to-edge panoramic view on each page.
