    Good morning! Is there a tutorial on how to use the Demco reattaching tape (item number 1267003)? This tape, which I’m not sure is even called reattaching tape, is not the easiest to use, so I’m thinking there must be a better way. It is just like the double-stitched binding tape (zero width), but is has 4 adhesive flaps. Is it best to attach the tape to the signature, then fit it in? Or is it best to start by adhering one side to the book and then working the signature in? Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you, Monica

      Hi Monica,
      I believe the product you are referring to is called single-stitched binder tape. We discussed that product and detailed how to use it correctly in the blog post in mid-September.
      A video detailing correct usage is also available on the Demco web site. Copy the link I have added at the end of this message into your browser. It will take you to a description of the product and the “videos” tab there will take you to the video.
      Single-stitched binder tape is used to repair a book with one broken hinge. If both hinges are broken so the text block is separate from the cover, use double-stitched binder tape which was discussed the the blog in late September.
      I hope this answers your question. If not, please feel free to contact us again. Here is the link to the product:

      Hi, Zanele,
      Demco does not currently offer book repair services. We do, however, have lots of instructional content on how to make your own repairs. Simply search “book repair” in the search bar above and you’ll find lots of information. Thanks!
