"Our customers are enthusiastic not only because of the good opening behavior but also because of the ecological advantages. With dispersion adhesive and the unique spine processing of the book block, the Flatbind* products achieve great layflat behavior. In addition, durability and resistance to aging are important arguments for using this innovative type of binding. Top binding is a trendsetter for good functionality with great consideration for our environment. Whether soft or hard cover, Flatbind ensures that the book, not the reader, comes out flat."

„I was convinced by the smartflat technology due to its unique impact behavior combined with the environmentally friendly aspect. Today, only what is sustainable can be contemporary. Future-proof visions can only exist if they take this aspect into account. We at Zipperlen live and work by this guiding principle – and now bind smartflat for our customers.“

Michael Gugelfuß
Management Druck & Medien Zipperlen GmbH

„The result of the binding meets all our expectations. The strength of the binding is excellent, you can hold the book hanging from a single sheet in your hand, even though the book is quite heavy. The opening is phenomenal, the double-sided pictures lie flat in front of you and this results in a very special "viewing experience" with an illustrated book. The customer, as well as booksellers and critics, are thrilled with the workmanship.“
