Standard M2 Bookletmaker Review

Standard M2 Electric BookletmakerBookletmakers are used to create a wide variety of literature. This includes instruction manuals, promotional literature, booklets and much more. If you are in the market for a bookletmaker, one model you may want to consider is the Standard M2 electric-powered bookletmaker (found here). I have used this machine and this is my review.

To begin with, this model has been around for some time. That isn’t a bad thing. That just means the design works, has been proven over years and continues to be popular. It is best suited for on-demand jobs.

While not as digital as many newer models, the M2 is still very easy to set up. It can be used with a wide range of paper sizes (6 x 8 ½-inches up to 11 x 17-inches).  Once the paper size has been set, the rest is very automated. The built quality is excellent and should easily last for years of trouble-free operation.

Simply take your stack of paper, place it in the feed tray and push a button. The machine then pulls that stack (up to 15 sheets), folds it and staples it along the spine. The newly created booklet exits the other side of the machine.

The M2 can single fold and staple up to 15 sheets of standard 20# paper at a time. This means it can create a booklet with up to 60 pages, which isn’t half bad. A total of two staplers are used to do the stapling, although it has enough slots for up to five. The motor itself runs at a speed of up to 800 booklets an hour.

This booklet maker can be found in schools, churches, clubs, corporate sales, marketing departments and much more.  It is ideal for any business that has the need of a short-run booklemaker. While not designed for high-volume production, it can be used for low to medium-volume jobs.

The only downside is that there isn’t any onboard storage system where you can create and store custom jobs. This isn’t a huge deal as the machine is easy to set up, but it would still be a nice feature to have.

Overall I really like the Standard M2 Bookletmaker. It is certainly a solid machine and can easily be used without any problems. The end result is professional and presentable.
