Presentation binders – the best of two worlds

A binder-folder hybrid that holds your materials with style!

Presentation binders are a fantastic solution when you want an economical, printed binder for your information pieces. They are basically a pocket folder with rings, so you will oftentimes hear people refer to them as 3-ring folders, paperboard binders or ring folders. Made from sturdy paperboard, these presentation binders weigh less than a full cased and lined binder, making it easier to transport them. Plus, they can be customized to your specific needs.

These flexible customization options make ring folders especially great for the medical industry or conferences, meetings and trade shows. They are ideal when you might have information pieces that everyone needs, but also allow the option of organizing variable components with your materials. Matching tab dividers make it even more convenient to navigate through your content.

Design options

Presentation binders offer the complete design flexibility with full color graphics inside and out. Even if you are only printing on the outside, your branding can extend to the inside of your binder through the optional pockets that fold in. Adding lamination provides extra protection for your graphics and increases the durability of your paperboard binder. Lamination is available in gloss, natural matte and D&K Soft Touch. Spot UV and varnish are other great options to make your design stand out!

Choose round back binders to square away your papers

Square Back or Round Back: What works best for you?

The first decision with your binder project will be whether you want a standard square back or an ergonomic round back binder. While we are all accustomed to the shape of a square back binder and how it looks on a shelf, the rounded spine is a unique shape for a binder. But when you think about how it feels to hold a standard binder in your hand while flipping through the pages, you will probably agree that there is room for improvement. A round back binder has an architectural curve in the spine which fits the shape of your hand perfectly. This shape also creates a sophisticated look and contributes to the overall strength of the binder.

CI custom printed 3 ring binders

 

Strongest binder on the shelf

The hinges of the binder are pressed directly into the board which allows the opportunity for uniquely shaped spines including the round back binder. With this construction technique, you have the advantage of stronger hinges (which have been lab-tested to 250,000 openings without fail) as well as great customizing options.

How to make the worlds best 3-ring binder - Corporate Image

The binder above, designed by James Maddox for Artesian Cancer Centers of Oklahoma, was awarded Best Binder in the World in 2011. According to the jury, the grooves in the spine add to the classic appearance of the product and make it a very flexible and strong binder.

Great design options for a round back binder

And the round spine does not limit your printing and finishing options. You can create a truly unique product that will stand out from the traditional square back binders.

Organize your life with tab dividers

Making your life easier to navigate 

Whether you are using a box or a binder, index tab dividers make it easy to organize your information. Your 3-ring binder is a custom designed work of art that is eye-catching and fulfills your presentation needs. Take your branding to the next step with custom tab dividers to compliment your custom binder. Need to organize your sales boxes? Why not enhance the look and function of your custom-designed box from us with the tab dividers created to fit your needs?

 

Offset printed tab dividers

When you need the absolute best, this is it. For eye-catching graphics and vibrant color, there is nothing like offset printing for custom tab dividers. It’s always the best option when you’re trying to match a PMS color. Offset printed tab dividers have a full range of options from standard tab cuts to half moon or custom. They are available in standard banks of 2-8 as well as custom configurations, including pocket pages, cut sheets and box tabs. Design your tab dividers to be printed either single- or double-sided and create a unique look by adding one of our 3 lamination options, spot UV or varnishes.

Design example offset printed tabsDesign example offset printed tabs

Digitally printed tab dividers

For runs of 50 to 350 sets of custom tab dividers, Corporate Image has two digitally printed options available. Naturally we offer eco-friendly digital printing.

Standard Tab Dividers 

Don’t let the name “standard tab dividers” mislead you. The standard tab dividers still offer you some beautiful customizing options. Your tab dividers will be printed single-sided. They come with Mylar reinforced tab and ring strip for additional strength and longevity and arrive in collated sets. Depending on how much information you need to organize, you can decide how many tabs you need. Corporate Image offers banks of 4 to 8 tabs with this option.

Custom Pocket Folders with Capacity

Sometimes you need more room in a pocket folder.

A standard pocket folder has no spine, limiting how much paper you can fit into the pockets (about 20 sheets). Sometimes that is not enough.  If you need more room you have several options that can help you get what you need without breaking the bank.

Capacity Pocket Folders

high capacity custom pocket folders - corporate image

For those of you who have larger information needs but don’t need a binder, a capacity pocket folder is the way to go.

A capacity pocket folder has two scores at the spine so the spine can be more than a single flat score.

Depending on the pockets you chose and the spine width (1/4 inch is fairly standard), you can fit much more information as well as having better shelf presence by branding the spine. Inside the capacity pocket folder you have more to think about. Depending on what you need, you can have box pockets (either vertical or horizontal).

 

 

Expandable Pocket Pocket Folders

custom pocket folders with high capacity - corporate image

An expandable pocket allows you to use the same folder for a meeting with 10 sheets of paper and a conference with 50.

One of the benefits of this pocket is that the folders can ship flat.  A box pocket is amazing, but takes a lot of space resulting in larger shipping costs and more storage space.

Upgrade Your Current Pocket Folder with a Custom Folder

 Corporate Image produces pocket folders that really stand out. With a huge range of pocket folder templates to choose from, and product designers who can help you customize to fit your needs you can always get what you need!

Customize your pocket folder with foil stamping, embossing, debossing and custom die-cuts, as well as aqueous coating, varnish, spot UV printing, PMS and full 4 color printing. Our laminates range from gloss, semi-gloss, and soft touch (which adds a tactile silky feel to your folder).

In addition to our standard 1 and 2 pocket folders, we offer folders with file tabs, folders with capacity, glueless folders with a box pocket and tri-folders. Standard business card cuts and brochure cuts can be added to horizontal folder pockets at no charge.  We have a standard or custom folder to fit every budget and every business.

Great 3-ring Binder Designs

Design Projects of the Month: June 2016  – 3-ring Binders

Showing the great products that go through our production facilities is one of our great pleasures. We see so much amazing design that is inspiring to designers across North America.

This month, our binder picks went to three very different projects. Gray’s Tied House created small, mini binders to be used as bar menus. Kathleen Leonard, who sells beautiful high end real estate in Sonoma and Napa counties in California, went with a lovely short run binder. Our third pick is a new product we are releasing! We now make tabloid size printed binder and architect folders (sample books for architects that hold flooring, textile, tile, glass and other building samples) up to 54″ long.

Check them out and learn more about them!

Custom, Printed Binders: short runs, great quality

Now, your short run custom 3-ring binders can be whatever you can dream.

Our 3 ring binders  have won both ‘Best Binder in the World’ and ‘Best Binder in North America’ (4 times!). When you place your order you know your binders are strong, sustainable binders with top quality printing matching the attention to detail and craftsmanship that you put into every aspect of your company.

custom printed short run binders - corporate image

Low quantity custom binders are no problem.

Our short run binders are digitally printed with a high quality printer giving you full bleed images that cover the entire binder. The printed sheets are then laminated with a natural matte laminate that protects them from scuffing and water damage.

Sustainable, recyclable, and strong, these binders

Short run binders are available from 50 to 350 binders, offering a great option for conferences, meetings, and training binders.

How does this compare to a vinyl binder?

It doesn’t. Corporate Image makes recyclable binders that are non-toxic. Our printing is better, the binders last longer, don’t poison the environment or go to landfills, and they look much, much better.

When considering your brand or corporate image, consider whether a vinyl binder sums up what you are trying to say. If not, let us send you a sample to show you how much better your materials can look and feel.

The Corporate Image digital binder combines all of quality we are known for with the lower quantities you need.

A pocket folder doesn’t have to be boring. From vertical pockets, custom closures, window cuts, and unique designs, a pocket folder can be a brilliant piece of design.

Corporate Image offers a wide range of options that take your pocket folder from ordinary to extraordinary.

Closures.

From tuck flap closures to velcro, Corporate Image can help keep your pocket folder information safe. A portfolio pocket folder has a flap that wraps around the open end of a pocket folder helping to keep your information safe.

Movement.

Need a pocket folder that leaves an impression? We can help!

DORMA makes sliding door systems, so they wanted the closure on the folder to mimic their products. This folder has a sliding panel that velcros down to close the “door” on the folder. The result is unique, eye catching and leaves a lasting impression on everyone who picks it up!

Sustainable pocket folders.

When your company demands the most sustainable pocket folders in the world, you can turn to our glue-less pocket fiddlers. The pockets close with tuck flaps to form horizontal or vertical pockets, and as the name implies,  so there is no glue involved in manufacturing this folder. What results is an elegant pocket folder that clearly speaks about who you are as a company and your values.

A Pocket Folder with Room.

One pocket folder can handle all of your needs, from 1 sheet of paper to 50.

An expandable pocket folder can take care of a wide range of needs with an ingenious system that allows you to pull out the pocket to 1/4″ capacity when needed.

If you always need a lot of paper or a catalog to go into your pocket folder, a box pocket offers a strong platform for information you know is always going to be there. For booklets or brochures, conference information pieces, and proposals, a box pocket offers the room to handle what you need
