53-S adhesive, hard to stick material,
It’s nice to hear good stories involving our customers and products we provide to them. Lucas Bindery in Baltimore, Maryland had a customer who was having trouble gluing the turned edge of a film laminate to the liner. It just wouldn’t stick. They called our veteran analyst, Joe Lauricella who recommended our 53-S Casing-in paste. Designed for casing-in applications, 53-S is a liquid col...
Gane adhesives
Although many refer to us as a "One Stop Shop", occasionally some customers we have known for years come to us asking for a product or service they did not know we have. They may have purchased a board or cover material solely, and were not aware of our vast product line available from Gane Brothers & Lane. One of those items sometimes overlooked is adhesives. Gane has been supplying a...
Gane Imitation Leather
Gane is really everywhere!  Just imagine – our Imitation Leather being used for the speakers that Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top uses.    Venturing to Ravinia last summer, I was personally invited by Billy himself for front row seats to see those very speakers that Gane provided the material to make.   The speakers were made by MoJo Music of Burgaw, NC and designed by Magnatone of S...
Book Artistry
In today’s automated society, it is sometimes hard to fathom the time and effort it took to create the simplest of things we used in our daily lives. Before books were mass produced, they were painstakingly printed and built one at a time, and Gane was there to support these craftsmen. I recently discovered this video on Facebook thanks to my friend, Werner Rabsamen. The video is easy on...
Wedding MBA
What an exciting time for the event, bridal and reception groups. Wedding MBA members meet yearly in Las Vegas – where event planners, photographers, wedding officiants, venue localities, gown designers even candy designer – hey you name it – they show it at this event. Starting with over 50 meetings (you decide which ones you want to attend) then transitioning to the trade show portion. I...
5-yard minimums
One overlooked advantage of dealing with a distributor like Gane Brothers & Lane versus a mill is flexibility. Often, a mill is tied to large minimum orders and extended lead times. Over the years our customers have told us often their orders arrive from Gane soon after they have placed them. Of course, with any stocking product, there may be an occasion where we have been hit with large...
Mechanical Binding
What are the advantages of Mechanical Binding?     When your books need to have true lay-flat capabilities and a clean, modern appearance, mechanical binding is the style of choice.  All four mechanical binding styles can accommodate fold-outs, tabs and inserts, and are available in many colors.  Several cover options, including semi-concealed, fully-conceale...
Yes! paste
Gane's Yes! Paste has been used the world over by bookbinders, paper artists, and crafters for decades when a repositionable, non-curling acid-free adhesive is needed.  What’s the best way to apply Yes! Paste?  More isn’t always better.  With Yes Paste, a little goes a long way.  A bristle or foam brush works well to apply this thick consistency product, but th...
The creativity of people in the industries we supply never cease to amaze us. From our packaging customers to luxury box manufacturers, event planners, and too many other industries to mention in this blog…We have seen the evolution of the basic vinyl binder where volume superseded a healthy profit, to today, where functionality and design meet head on to create an amazing wow factor. And...
