VeloBind is a document binding system, particularly popular for binding reports and theses / dissertations. Small holes are punched through the document by a VeloBinder. VeloBind strips consist of a strip of plastic with rigid prongs. The prongs are inserted through the paper and met with another strip with holes to accommodate the prongs. The book is then held tightly while the excess, protruding lengths of the prongs is cut and the tips melted to seal the bind. The VeloBind is cheap and effective. VeloBind can easily be removed with a utility knife.
VeloBind is a GBC trademark but is often used as a generic for this type of binding. Strip binding is sometimes used to refer to this process. SureBind is another GBC trademark.
