Round Cornered Book

Wintry Press recently produced a smallish booklet with rounded corners on the 2 front corners only-the spine corners remained square. The stock on both the text and the cover was the very high quality Mohawk Superfine-beautiful. The challenge on something like this is to figure out a way to get a very smooth radius without going to the expense of die-cutting. Many round corner jobs produced on a traditional round corner machine do not create a smooth radius, instead they create what can be a bumpy, curve-not pretty. We had to practice with several cutting edges, along with modifying the speed of the cut to produce a very smooth corner that was loved by our client.
