Image Adjustment

The image should be centered on the gap if printing cross page spreads.  Otherwise, full bleed images can be printed through the gap entirely as necessary.

Once the image imposition settings have been determined, a “hot folder” can be created which will maintain those settings for everything it contains.  New books of the same size can be dropped into that folder and printed easily without extensive setup requirements.

Printing Tips

  • FlexBind® sheets can be run with the hinge in any orientation.  Ideally, in-board or out-board (in the print direction) is preferred.
  • Slight image deletions when printing in the gap are normal.  When bound in a book, those deletions become less noticeable.
  • Printing with the clear toner will improve the toner transfer into the recessed gap.
  • Run any FlexBind® product with an opaque hinge (black or white) at the proper GSM setting.
  • Fan sheets gently when loading into the feed drawer.
  • UV coating can be used normally with FlexBind®.
  • The Nexpress 5th Imaging Unit can be used normally.
  • The NexGlosser can be used normally
