It wasn’t long after Ken Bill, General Manager of A-1 Printing visited Graphco for a test run of the Spiel Digibinder, that he and owners Dan and Barb Price were convinced it was just what their perfect binding customers needed and deserved. Since 1983, A-1 has grown to a three location business (Bucyrus, Upper Sandusky and Galion, Ohio) with 13 employees. A-1 is a full service commercial printer offering 4-color offset & digital printing, complete bindery and integrated mailing services. Up to this point 90% of their binding has been to produce pads; however, they keep their eyes on the newest and most economic solutions available. The company’s goal was to grow the perfect binding segment and be able to offer a higher-quality, perfect bound book to customers. Ken is especially impressed with the ease of operation and changeover from padding to perfect binding on the machine. Within the first month of operating the Spiel Digibinder, Ken produced a 1000 run perfect bound job and was “especially pleased with the quality of the books and the short amount of time it took to produce the job.”
