Vevor Comic Book Cooling Press



Amazon Affiliate link above.  There are a myriad of ways to cool a book after being in the heat press, ranging from wood plates weighted with dumbbells to conservation style wooden worm presses.  Often pressers/conservators build a comic book cooling press that can accommodate more than one book, in search of increased production/profit.  Home made presses are often cumbersome stacks of flat stock compressed with weights or hydraulic presses.  No matter what solution is employed it goes without saying that the cooling process is significantly more important than the heating process, while the heat relaxes the fibres and the pressure flattens creases it is the cooling method that stabilizes the work and finalizes the finished product.  This article to present a wonderful solution on the market produced by Vevor (they also have a large line of heat presses, reviews of a couple of them are here), this solution eliminates pretty much all the shortcomings of the home built rigs.  Disclosure: Some of the links here are affiliate links.

My personal thoughts on this item are favorable, I love the flexibility of cool pressing a number of books at a time without any concerns of stacking errors, additional post press defects, etc.  Ease of use is also two thumbs up!  In order to effectively stack a number of books for cooling I employ steel plates between each book and the finish on all books in the stack is amazing!  Here are the product details off of their Amazon site:

  • Durable Material: This commercial bookbinding press is constructed with thickened steel, featuring a classic silver-grey appearance. The durable thickened steel allows it to be used in the long term without deformation.
  • Effective Working: Our powerful paper flattener is commonly suitable for A4 sized paper. It’s obvious to perceive that your documents can be flattened more efficiently by 12″ x 8.7″ (305 x 220 mm) large working area and 5.9″ (150 mm) flattening thickness. Moreover, owing to the rotary handle, elongated nut, and thickened plate, the pressure can reach 2204 lbs (1000 kg), which helps you work effortlessly.
  • Steady Structure: Non-slip foot pads reduce damage on the tabletop and increase friction to make the bookbinding tool more stable. On the other hand, two balance rods and 0.3″ (8 mm) baseplate thickness facilitates it to bear more substantial pressure evenly.
  • Easy Operation It’s relatively easy to operate this bookbinding press machine, especially with the detachable three-side baffles. Documents can be flattened tightly against the left, right, and middle baffle, ensuring a more convenient working process.
  • Excellent Office Tool: Our paper press machine, as a necessary office tool for sorting out data, is perfect to press bills, documents, books, stamps, banknotes, etc.
