At ThermoBind, we specialize in the widest range of presentation options for realtor professionals. We offer a wide selection of both hard and soft cover products. Our customization options include foil stamping, silk screening, embossing and offset and digital color. We also offer window cuts in a wide variety of sizes.
Realtors know that presentation is an essential ingredient to the sales process. In a highly competitive environment, it’s important to make a positive first impression.
Smart realtors recognize that the very tools used to develop a Market Analysis in hopes of securing a listing can be critical in differentiating their company. The quality of the package presented to a prospective seller speaks to how well the realtor will present the property to prospective buyers. Even the quality of simple handouts offered to potential buyers in a walk through, say a lot about your professionalism.
At ThermoBind we sell empty hard cover and soft cover books that have a heat activated adhesive or resin inside the spine. The correct spine width is selected for the appropriate volume of sheets. Then the cover with the sheets inside is placed into a thermal binding machine where it rests on a heating plate. After a minute or so the glue slightly wicks into the paper and the cover is removed and placed into a cooling rack. The result is a book store quality report presentation. Depending upon the machine and the spine width, as many as 20 covers can be bound at the same time.
We offer foil stamping, embossing, silk screening, window cuts, and one to four color printing. We also offer soft covers in many configurations including two and three panel designs with pockets, business cards slits and all the customization options listed above. Our 100,000 sq. ft printing plant in the Midwest can make just about anything that holds paper.
Most stock items will be shipped within two working days from receipt of order. Custom orders can vary from 10 to 20 working days from the time of proof approval.
Provide us with your 300 dpi high resolution artwork in vector format with your suggested positioning and we will provide you with a digital proof for approval. We can stamp up to an 80 Square inch image. However, the one time cost for foil and embossing dies will increase from $150 for a die that covers 20 square inches to as much as $320 for a die that covers up to 80 square inches. You can have more than one color foil stamped. Each color will require an additional stamping fee.
