We issue reports on the quality of bookbinding and identify the causes of problems in production.

We offer:
  • Binding assessments of adhesive bound books
  • Durability and archivability
  • Material evaluation
  • Stability problems (e.g. cover warp and waviness)
  • Advice on material selection and specification.

The Smithers Booktester, measuring the page pull strength of adhesive bound books, is available for sale from Mecmesin
