Also known as strip binding or hot knife binding, Velo binding is a document binding method that uses a narrow strip of plastic with rigid tines (or prongs) to secure the pages together. The plastic strip is often called a “VeloBind strip” or “hot knife strip.”You can use Velo binding for producing professional and secure documents like :
- Legal briefs
- Financial reports

As a trade printing specialist, we take the velo binding process very seriously, so that your clients’ demands go beyond their expectations.Here's an overview of the Velo binding process:
- Preparation: The pages of the document are collated and punched with rectangular holes along the edge where the binding will be placed. Velo binding machines are typically used for this purpose.
- VeloBind Strips: VeloBind strips are available in various lengths to accommodate different document sizes. The strip has rigid tines spaced at regular intervals along its length.
- Inserting Pages: The punched pages are inserted onto the tines of the VeloBind strip, ensuring that they are aligned correctly.
- Hot Knife Binding: The next step involves using a Velo binding machine that incorporates a hot knife mechanism. The hot knife is pressed down over the tines of the VeloBind strip, melting the plastic and forming a tight bond between the pages.
- Cooling and Setting: After the hot knife process, the plastic cools and hardens, creating a durable and tamper-resistant binding.
- Trimming (Optional): For a neat and professional appearance, excess VeloBind strip may be trimmed from the edge of the document.
