We can compose, impose, print and stack trim our customized notepads just fine. The bottleneck is our padding press. We can do about 200 at a time on it, but unstacking and trimming the stacks apart is pretty slow and looks like our current production bottleneck. Let me "note" that each notepad is often for a different customer so that may limit some options or proposed upgrades. We have two pad presses but adding more of those would still have the trim-apart step as a bottleneck. We have looked at something like a Duplo Perfect Binder and that gets rid of the trim-apart problem, but one pad at a time is loaded so I am not sure that speeds things up much, if at all. I am hoping someone has some good advice on this. We did see a circular perfect bind machine but it was way to large to fit in our pretty crammed full shop.
