Fastback® Composition Strip™ for Model 20 (Price per Case)


Composition Strips™ offer a smooth, premium binding strip that is compatible with the Fastback® Model 20 binding machine. The professional colors were chosen to match seamlessly with our standard vinyl cover stock, offering a consistent and clean appearance when paired together. The colors available include black, white, maroon, dark blue, and red. As with the other Fastback® binding supply strips, the Composition Strip™ offers an easy and quick binding solution, that looks extremely professional. The pre-applied adhesive on the strips is activated by the Model 20, and creates a nearly flush attachment to your covers and book block, as well as an extremely strong bind that will hold up, even to heavy handling.

A great option for mailers, manuals, presentations, proposals, and more, you can buy Fastback® Composition Strips™ for your Model 20 tape binding machine online for your letter size 8 ½" x 11" documents. They are also available in several different widths to accommodate thin books (use narrow strips, up to 1/2" books), medium books (use medium, up to 1" books), and thick books (use wide strips, up to 1 ½" books). The packaging varies depending on the strip width, so make a selection below or check the packaged quantities to the right.

Composition Strip™ FAQs

Q: Do Comp Strips work with the Model 9?
Powis Composition Strips™ were designed for the Model 20 and several other older Fastback® machines, however, not with the Model 9. For the Model 9 we offer LX Strips™.


Q: How are Comp Strips™ different from traditional Super Strips™?
The difference is in the materal and texture. Composition Strips have a vinyl, leather-like texture, whereas Super Strips™ have a linen, fabric-like texture.

Product Description


Fastback® tape strip binding is one of the most professional book binding solutions available, offering an extremely clean and seamless look. With these Composition Strips™, which are built to work perfectly with the Fastback® Model 20 binding machine, you can create proposals for clients, presentations, manuals and guides for machinery, and so much more. Their pre-applied adhesive is activated in the binding machine, and creates a very strong hold that will keep all of your pages bound securely, even through heavy handling. They create a nearly flush bind, which is not bulky at all, and great for filing and mailing.

Choose from a selection of corporate colors that were designed to match perfectly with our vinyl covers, including black, white, dark blue, maroon, and red comp strips. They are all 11" long to be compatible with standard letter size 8 ½" x 11" book sizes. Choose from several different widths to accommodate books up to 1 ½" thick. Narrow strips are packaged with 500 per box, and will handle books up to 1/2" thick (which is about 25 sheets of standard 20 lb. bond copy paper). Medium strips are packaged with 400 per box, and will handle books from 1/2" to 1" thick (120 to 250 sheets). And wide strips are packaged with 300 strips per box, and will handle books between 1" and 1 ½" thick (250 to 350 sheets).
