PrimeOne board



Cover board for Photo Books, Books, Binders, and Menus.

Designed to meet the needs of Bind-On-Demand and Photo Books

A growing segment of the book market with unique challenges is Bind-On-Demand and Photo Books. These are books printed digitally and bound and shipped immediately after. The binding must be tolerant of this quick service and still arrive at the customers in excellent condition.

These types of books are very meaningful to the consumer. They’re a physical expression of the memories recorded in the pictures and words. We’re packaging the
most precious moments of people’s lives.

A common problem with Bind-On-Demand and Photo Books is cover board warp. In many cases, the books don’t have time to rest or be pressed. They are printed, bound and shipped. If there is even a bit of unequal moisture distributed within the binding, it may cause the cover to cup or slightly warp. Once this happens, no amount of pressing will correct the problem. A warped cover detracts from the feeling of quality.

LBS knew Bind-On-Demand and Photo Books need binder’s board that is smooth and consistent with warp-resistant qualities. So we worked with RockTenn’s mill, in Aurora, IL, to develop and launch an exclusive board for the Bind-On-Demand and Photo Book market. We analyzed each step of their operation in order to develop a new board that would have the qualities demanded by these markets.

The result is our new PrimeOne® board. To make PrimeOne® consistent, we developed a mixture of waste papers and fiber that would result in a warp-free board that was free of blemishes, smooth, and even in color. We use the cleanest waste paper and fiber available.

Of course, these same characteristics that make PrimeOne® ideal for Bind-On-Demand and Photo Books make it an excellent choice for any type of book – coffee table books, cookbooks, travel books, bound paper backs, children’s books and more! With PrimeOne®, you can bind with confidence.
