InstaBook Maker is a production system so small,
it may be installed anywhere.
7' Long (200 cms)
3' Tall (90 cms)
2.5' Deep (80 cms)
With InstaBook Maker you can go from typing the final period,
to make as many perfect bound books as you need. Without
transition, or waiting period.
Traditional development period requires months between
the final draft and the first book.
With InstaBook the distance between the final draft and the first book
is just a click away. A true book on demand system that works just like
your office printer.
Page Layout and Formatting;
You may continue using your present software, or use our own software.
InstaBook works with just about every major
commercial software in the market.
You may use files in formatted in .doc, pdf, html, etc.
It doesn't matter. InstaBook can take it.
Since you do not have to change anything from what you are already doing,
it reduces even more the development time for your books.
InstaBook makes so much sense,
you have to wonder how have you managed without it.
When you are ready to start making books, you just click a button.
The electronic file is then printed on sheets of bond paper of the best quality,
the sheets of paper are then mixed and matched, cut and assembled
by the InstaBook Maker into a book.
17 seconds after the last sheet of paper is printed,
you have a finished book in your hands.
InstaBook is so affordable, you have to wonder why you don't have one yet.
InstaBook requires very little operator intervention,
and it makes a 100 page, perfect-bound book in a few minutes.

boxes of paper going as low as $19.00
