Best Graphics Clinches a Half Million Dollar Contract


AUTHOR: John Hower

It’s been an exceptional week for the Best Graphics sales team! We closed a lucrative deal worth over half a million dollars, all within a single contract. Our valued customer from California made the strategic decision to enhance their digital finishing department by acquiring the following cutting-edge equipment:

  • New! IBIS Smart-binder SB-3, Digital Saddle Stitcher
  • New! IBIS CIF-102, Cover Feeder
  • New! IBIS CAL-101, Cover Feeder Autoloader
  • 2015 Hunkeler UW6, Unwinder
  • 2007 Hunkeler CS6-II, Cutter
  • 2008 Hunkeler LS6, Stacker



IBIS, founded in the United Kingdom in 1999, is a world-leading supplier of high-speed digital book finishing systems. The IBIS Smart Binder ‘Plus HS’ can produce personalized, variable page-count wire-stitched (SB-2) or cold-glued (SB-3). These systems are used around the world to produce personalized booklets for schools, health care, insurance, financial, government, and many other applications. Notable installations include RR Donnelley, O’Neil Digital Solutions, Pearson Educational, Broadridge, and Liturgical Publications.



Achieving up to 7,000 booklets per hour, IBIS Smart Binders individually score and fold 4- or 8-page sigs into a collated set before wire-stitching, or spine-gluing books in 3.8” x 4.7” up to 17.4” x 10.7” size formats.



The Smart Binder may be supplied as a model SB-3, which includes IBIS’ unique ISG cold glue binding system. This system produces a “stitchless” book which has better lay-flat qualities than a wire-stitched booklet, as illustrated in the photo above. The SB-3 lay-flat solution inserts better during the mailing/fulfillment process.
