Reliable Binding

Fastback binding is strong, durable and attractive. Pages in a Fastback document can withstand more than 50 pounds of pull. The tough thermoplastic adhesive will not become brittle with age, so it’s perfect for archival storage.

  • Layflat: Fastback Thermal Strip delivers true lay-flat binding.
  • Colorful: Fastback offers 15+ strip colors.
  • Bind Faster: Fastback binders are 3.5x faster than competitive binding systems.
  • Super Strong: Fastback bound documents can withstand more than 50 pounds of pull.
