Brochures & Booklets

The application to bind a brochure or booklet with only one eyelet allows the pages/text sheets to fan.   The standard setting for the eyelet is to allow the pages to move but to hold their position when not being moved.   Aero can modify the tension(setting) of the eyelet to meet each customer’s requirements.

Thickness of Brochure: The maximum thickness for your booklet should not exceed .300″ if you would like to consider an eyelet for binding the pages together.  

Placement of Eyelet: The placement of the eyelet should be considered during the design process to avoid putting text in the dead zone.  The dead zone is the area that will be hidden as the pages turn.   For example, if the center of the hole for the eyelet is drilled .30″ from the edge, you will end up with a .60″ diameter dead zone as the pages turn where the eyelet is installed.

Button & String

Aero will do the installation for you. Your task is to decide which combination of button, string and eyelets you would like to go with. We offer a variety of choices to bring your design to the next level. Our team will work with you to determine the best combination for your project.  

Dials & Wheels

The most common use for an eyelet is to connect two  circles together.    This application can used for calculator wheels, product reference tools as well as a marketing tool. 

3 piece wheels are common along with some applications with 4 pieces are more. 

Design Studio

We often work on projects that we think are quite interesting and fun.  Though we were not the people who designed these projects, we often work with the printers & the designers during the design phase.
