MBM AutoBook Electric Booklet Maker Review

MBM AutoBook Booklet MakerBooklet makers are useful machines to have on hand. They can be used to create booklets, reports, pamphlets and much more. There are dozens of different to choose from. Once machine that you may want to consider using is the MBM AutoBook booklet maker (found here). I have been lucky enough to use this machine on several occasions and this is my review.

MBM currently makes about 6 different models of booklet makers. This includes models that staple and models that stitch with wire. MBM has been making office equipment for some time now. This includes Destroyit shredders, Kutrimmer paper trimmers and Triumph paper cutters.

The AutoBook booklet maker is one of MBMs entry-level booklet makers and can be used for light to medium-volume booklet making. Setup of the AutoBook literally takes just a minute or two. Once out of the box, you should be able to have the MBM AutoBook up and running in no time.

Simply take your stack of paper, place it in the booklet maker, press a button and the machine does the rest. It essentially places 2 staples down the center of the paper and then folds it. The end results are professional, clean and they look great.

The AutoBook has a 15-sheet capacity (using 20# paper). This means you can bind a book, counting front and back, which features a total of 60 pages. The paper range goes from 8 ¼” x 10″ up to 12″ x 17″. This is pretty impressive, especially for a machine at this price.

The control panel on the AutoBook is pretty simple. An LCD screen makes navigation extremely easy. It allows you to select up to 6 different pre-set booklet sizes. A series of buttons make it easy to enter the menu, make adjustments and begin using the machine.

One thing I like about the AutoBook is that it’s compact and easy to use on just about any desk or table. It weighs in at 58 pounds shipped.

Another alternative you may want to consider is the Formax FD 180 booklet maker, which is extremely similar in setup and design. You can read my review of the FD 180 here.

Overall I consider the MBM AutoBook to be a great machine. The quality is there and it is backed by an excellent manufacturer. Just remember that this is not designed for high-volume use.
