      How would you describe the binding method or device used in
      illustration one here:

      http://books.google.com/books?id=S78TtvOky1IC&lpg=PA200&ots=4vNP5vTvR5&dq=%22pinza%20de%20pl%C3%A1stico%22%20libro&pg=PA201#v=onepage&q=%22pinza%20de%20pl%C3%A1stico%22%20libro&f=false

      For what it's worth, in Spanish it's referred to as a "pinza de
      plástico" (which literally means "plastic peg").

          I'd agree with that, might also be called spring back, but probably has a specific brand name. There are many different kinds of patent loose leaf bindings, some with only slight differences. A plastic comb binding would be No. 4 in the illustration (also known as GBC or Cerlox bindings, and other names too).

            Has anyone used a polymer plate to print Braille? I am working with an artist that wants to print Braille over an image. Thanks for any help. Bill Big Wheel

              Braille needs to be punched up from behind the paper - the negative space in a debossed image won t (in my experience) have enough of a relief to be readable.

                Braille needs to be punched up from behind the paper - the negative space in a debossed image won't (in my experience) have enough of a relief to be readable. A male/female embossing die might do the trick. I happen to have a brailler in my studio - interesting little machine.
