I like the option of the Binderymate 2 Wire Stitcher has to switch from a saddle stitch to flat so easily. And, you can’t help but being impressed by the ISP wire-fed magnetic stitching head. It’s patented. If it’s worth a patent, it probably works well.
How is it Used?
The Binderymate 2 is operated by a foot pedal and will mount easily to most work tables. You’ll be able to stitch 60 pages at a time (depending on the stock you’re using), and the transparent guard will keep you safe without getting in your way. I like that its also flexible enough to accommodate sizes as small as 2″ x 2″ to 11″ x 17″. If you’re looking for a dual head stitcher, this Binderymate Wire Stitcher can be easily converted to connect a twin machine.
And How Much Does it Cost
The MBM Binderymate 2 Wire Sticher is $2,195 at Lloyd’s. We’ll throw in free shipping and a gift with your purchase.

What Do They Do?
A booklet maker or booklet machine basically creates booklets by taking a stack of paper and then folding it and stapling it along the spine (this is called a saddle staple). It’s ideal for making pamphlets, reports, bulletins, newsletters and, of course, booklets.
Our booklet makers are automated, meaning they can be interfaced with a collator to automate the entire booklet making process. So, no more counting, sorting, stacking, folding and stapling by hand.
The Akiles can produce up to 800 booklets in an hour and can make booklets up to 64 pages in thickness. There’s no warm-up time and it can handle folding and stapling or both simultaneously. It’s ideal for short jobs at a print shop, businesses and institutions like schools, churches or community organizations.
The Formax FD 170 Booklet Maker can fold up to 15 sheets at once (making a 60-page double-sided booklet) and, like the Akiles, can do up to 800 booklets in an hour. It can also handle stapling for a polished look.
How Much Do They Cost?
The two booklet makers that we carry cost upwards of $2000. The Akiles BookletMac is currently on sale for $2199 ($300 less than standard market price) and the FD 170 Booklet Maker sells on our site for $2995.
