Bookbinding Coptic jig.
The easiest way to mark / punch the holes in your book covers.
Our punching jig will allow you to make holes in the covers of your notebooks in the right place without measuring.

This Coptic binding jig consists of a clear acrylic plate with holes every 5/10mm.
To use simply align up the edge on your book cover (spine side) and use the hole pattern to mark where you want your holes.
Being symmetrical it is very easy to repeat the pattern you want across the cover.
