GBC System Two VeloBind Binding Machine Review

GBC System 2 VeloBind Binding MachineDo you bind a lot of reports, documents and other printed material? Do you need to be able to bind a book up to 2″ thick? If your answer is yes to either of these questions, you may want to consider using a binding machine like the GBC System Two 2″ VeloBind machine (found here). I have a lot of experience with this book binder and this is my review.

The GBC VeloBind system is one of the most popular book binding systems out there. It looks great, provides a solid bind and is tamper proof. GBC sometimes markets their VeloBind systems under the SureBind name. They are both the same machine. GBC currently makes a 1″, 2″ and 3″ VeloBind machine.

The GBC System Two is a 2″ VeloBind machine. That means it can bind anywhere from 2 sheets of paper up to a maximum of 2″ of paper. Few machines are capable of binding this much paper. It can be used to bind books as small as 8 ½” long or as large as 14″ long. The most common size is 11″.

The System Two most commonly uses an 11-prong (1 x 11 or 2 x 11) VeloBind strip. This strip is very proprietary to the GBC VeloBind sytstem. It measures in at about ¼” wide and 11″ long and is available in several different colors. I will go into a little more detail on exactly how the System Two works.

To begin with, you will need to punch the paper. The GBC System Two can manually punch up to 22 sheets of paper at a time. This is a lot of paper for a binding machine. Punching 1-2″ of paper takes just a few minutes. Once the paper has been punched, the 11-prong VeloBind strip can be placed through the holes.

Once through the holes, a back strip can be applied to the VeloBind strip. The stack of paper can then be placed in the System Two for the final step. The System Two then cuts off the excess prongs and thermally seals the prongs to the back strip. The end result is an extremely tight and secure bind.

Many construction companies and lawyer’s offices like to use VeloBind because they can bind a lot of paper at once. VeloBound documents are extremely easy to file away and place on a bookshelf.

The GBC System Two VeloBind is a solid binding machine. Having used it myself, I can tell you that the quality needed for an office binding machine is all there. It has been around for years, is time tested and the end results look great.
