These pictures are of “spinners.” I did an Eblast on spinners months ago, but now I’m seeing a much wider range of “styles,” rather than the commonest, namely two circles of two different sizes.
Picture #1 and #2 is very unusual; three levels or pieces with the most unusual die-cutting for a “spinner” piece that I’ve ever seen. You’ll notice in picture #3 and #4 that the “faces” change from a man to a woman. The piece could be bound into a magazine. Notice the right-hand side of picture #4 an index finger “pushes” the “centre” piece around to a different position.
Similarly, on picture #5 and #6 you’ll see the finger movement on the left side and if you’ll look carefully the “combination” changes about the door handle.
“Spinners” are a fabulous marketing tool for picture changing, consumer involvement and intrigue. The eyelet than holds the two, or three or four pieces together. It comes in many, many colours and various diameters.
TIPS FOR REDUCING PROBLEMS IN THE BINDERY
Always ensure layout allows for “creep” at trim and spine when binding.
When a book or brochure’s pages are folded together or collated into sections prior to being bound, and as the pages are stacked together and increase in number, the gauge of the paper forces the inner sheets out until they are sitting proud of the outer sheet. The result when trimmed: the inner’s outer margins will be thinner than the outer’s. Not only will this be unpleasant on the eye but also any items dangerously close to the trim edge could be cut off. Similarly, one must be wary of the binding mechanism specified, as some techniques use up more of the gutter of the page than others. An example is perfect binding, where up to 5mm of the gutter margin on the page can be lost. When deciding on your layout and working out the margins, consider page extent and the binding so that you can counteract that dread “creep!”
