Monochrome Parts Manuals are one of the main applications comprised of a booklet at 116 pages plus a heavy stock cover.
One of the main reasons Seaboard Graphics invested in a Pro30 system, is their customer’s preference for the SquareFold look over Perfect Binding.
They produce 10,000 booklets per month.

Seaboard Graphics saves as much as 10 hours per week with the Pro30 Booklet Maker inline to the Nuvera 120 Printer. The Pro30 system has also created new opportunities and cost effective solutions for their customers.
