Print hassle-free braille books

Traditionally to bind braille books, spiral or wire binding methods have been used. To create a completed braille book using this method, one must first separate the printed braille document, then perforate and align each page for the chosen binding method. This process is outdated and takes considerable time and money efforts.
Braille Booklet

With BrailleBox V5 using 11x17 inch paper and booklet format, it is naturally much easier and less time consuming as much of the manual labor is removed. BrailleBox V5 is able to emboss at speeds up to 30% faster than V4. After the pages are printed, the ready documents will pile in page order with a dotted braille line down the middle of the page, you can then fold along this braille line to have a completed braille book. After having folded the A3 size paper, each printed page will then be in A4 size. Just staple, using the Index Braille stapler, along the middle line if desired and just like that you have a braille book!
