          My Thermal Binder was easy to operate and helped me produce a great-looking product in very little time. I will not hesitate to use it for the next project.

          Comments about Fellowes Helios 30 Thermal Binding Machine:

          The ideal was good and I was excited to purchase this product because I wanted to use it to put together my genealogy documents but I was really disappointed with this product and didn't do what it was suppose to do. I purchased the Thermal Presentation Covers as well and followed the instructions and it didn't work the pages did not stick together it looked nothing like the product review I seen in the video clip. I sent it back for a full refund but I'm stuck with the Thermal Covers since I used two trying to get the product to do what it was suppose to do. I would buy another machine like this in the future but only after all the problems have been sorted out and there is proof that it does what it says it does. Plus I found the Presentation Covers to be a little on the pricey side.

              I have been a library media specialist for 26 years. I have always had problems trying to repair books successfully and have literally used every type of glue on the market. The Helios 30 Thermal Binder glues the books back together and they look like brand new! I am so impressed and happy with the results!

              Cartridge Comparison Guide
              • Cartridge Types
              • Ink & Toner Basics
              • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
              Cartridge Type
              Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
              Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
              Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
              Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
              What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
              Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
              Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
              Material Liquid ink Dry powder
              How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
              Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
              Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
              Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
              Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
