  1. Family History. Putting together a history of your family is a great project and one that will be appreciated for generations to come. You can conduct interviews of senior members of your family, research the eras and locations where member of your family settled, and gather news stories, family photographs, and other historical items to help you with your work. There are numerous genealogy programs available online and on CD-ROM, so there's no reason not to get started on producing your family history book today!
  2. Poetry. Whether you just want to get your own poems together in one place, or you and a few friends want to create an anthology to draw some attention to your work, publishing your own poetry is a great solution. With the right machine, you can make a finished product that looks like it came from a publishing house, or make smaller chapbooks to hand out to friends, family and potential publishers.
  3. Family Yearbooks. From first steps to packing for college, putting your family's year together in book form is a great way to keep your photos, memories, and accomplishments all in one place. These also make great gifts, and each member of your family will want to have one on his or her shelf.
  4. Family Reunion Books. Before your next big family reunion, send out some questionnaires and requests for photographs so that each family will be represented. Then take a lot of photos of the family reunion and put them together in a book you can send out as holiday gifts. It's a great way for everyone to stay in touch and to remember the fun they had.
  5. Cookbooks. Whether you want to put together a book of your own recipes to share with friends and family (or the world at large), or you are part of a church or another organization that wants to raise some funds, creating your own cookbook on your own binding machine is a great and satisfying project that will be appreciated and used for years to come.
  6. Photo Books. Vacations, holidays, and special events can be great subjects of photo books, and with your own thermal binding system, you can make as many or as few copies as you wish, whenever you like, quickly and easily.
  7. Novels and Short Stories. If you are a budding author, you don't need to seek the approval of a far away publisher in order to see your work in hardcover form. Get your own binding machine and get your hard work out into the world on your own terms.
  8. Coloring Books. With your own binding machine and some photo processing software, you can create your own custom made coloring books for your kids. Use photos from a recent outing, or of family members, and just watch how much fun the little ones have.
  9. Art Books. If you are looking for ways to display your artwork in a form that you can carry around in your backpack, you should consider taking high-quality photos of your work and binding it all in a hardcover or wire-o book
