Customer Feedback

IBIS have installed over 160 book finishing solutions at over 100 customers at locations all around the world. Many of these customers have chosen, after a period of time, to purchase additional IBIS systems.

Here are a small selection of our customer endorsements:

Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. NY, USA

The fold quality is second-to-none because the Smart-binder individually folds each sheet, instead of folding 'groups' of sheets as our other stitchers do.... IBIS's 'patented' ISG cold glue binding... provides numerous benefits, in addition to helping the booklets lie even flatter and giving a stronger bind.... We will certainly look to IBIS when we require further finishing solutions in future.
