What’s inside matters!

Custom Inserts for your Packaging Project

A custom designed insert makes your box even more special. They are ideal to present your product with an additional “wow” and they hold all your pieces securely in place.

  

Corrugate and Paperboard Inserts

An insert for your box can be created from different materials, depending on your product specifications and preferences. While a corrugate insert is ideal for holding heavy duty samples in place, a paperboard insert has a more elegant appeal to it.

Our in-house packaging designer will create a white mock-up of your box and insert, so you can test the dimensions and make sure your products stay securely in place and are presented exactly the way you envisioned.

       

Foam Inserts

Corporate Image also offers foam inserts for extra cushioning and protection. The foam will be custom cut to fit the dimensions of your box and to hold your product or sample in place.

Pocket Folder Custom Configurations

You’ll be surprised by the many varieties a custom pocket folder can come in. Choose the best pocket layout for your folder – horizontal, vertical or expanding. We even offer folder pockets designed to securely hold multimedia like CDs, DVDs and USB flash drives.

Not just an ordinary folder!

Portfolio flaps.

With a variety of unique closures, this solution is another great presentation that will hold your materials in place with a little more interest.

Expandable pockets.

Some pocket folders need to carry more than 25 sheets per pocket. In that case, look for our custom high capacity folders. A high capacity folder may not have a box pocket, but it has a wider spine allowing more paper to fit easily into the folder.

A box pocket will have an actual pocket that is built out to hold a certain capacity of paper (say 1/4″ box pocket). A vertical pocket also helps keep that larger amount of paper from slipping out.

USB folders.

Our USB folder houses your digital information securely in place to give your presentation the electronic option attachment. We have a standard USB folder, or can design a custom folder that holds your specific USB.

crowehorwth

Business card cuts and brochure slits.

There are many options for card cuts as well as brochure and CD/DVD slits that can go on the pockets of your folder. This allows you to further customize the way the information is being held and perceived.

You can specify vertical or horizontal cuts for business cards or go with a universal card cut to keep your options open. Business card slits are usually changeable on pocket folder dies, and we provide standard card cuts on horizontal pockets at no charge.

We look forward to working with you on your next custom folder project!

Cloth binders

If you are looking to up your 3 ring binder game, look into a cloth binder.

custom cloth and debossed binders - Corporate Image

A cloth binder offers a sense of elegance and permanence that you don’t find in plastic or vinyl binders. Plastic and vinyl project a feeling of impermanence, cost cutting as well as being toxic.

Cloth binder options:

B-cloth, Pearl Linen and Verona Naturals are three options for wrapping your binder (b-cloth shown below)

color options for your cloth 3 ring binders - Corporate Image

 

Why not merge the beauty of cloth with the branding of print? With printed spine wraps your 3 ring binder can have it all.

Printed Spine Wrap and Cloth Binder

This binder is a great example of a print and cloth mix.  A printed spine wrap visually pops next to the classic look of the foils stamped cloth. The brand is supported and enhanced by the contrast.

 

Foil Stamping.

Foil stamping on cloth offers a range of options allowing you to match corporate colors and enhance logos. Sometimes subtle, sometimes bold, foil stamping gives a unique look for your binder as the example of Sava’s restaurant shows.

 

img_7141

 

The benefits of cloth go beyond looks and feel.  Book cloths are incredibly durable making a cloth binder stronger than almost any other binder you can find.  The cloth binder you make today can easily still be in use (and looking great) 35 years from now. How do we know?  We use our own product and Corporate Image is 35 years old.

If you are considering using a 3 ring binder to represent your company, a cloth binder gives you a feel, look and branding that is unique. Contact us to learn more!

Finger Pulls

Metal finished finger pulls make it easy to remove 3-ring binders from shelves and actually extend the life of the binder by reducing stress and wear on the top of the spine.

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.

Helath, Wellness and Medical Marketing Materials - Corporate Image

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.

Who is Tree City USA

tree city USA custom 3-ring binders - corporate image

The Tree City USA is a program of the Arbor Day Foundation which has been greening up cities and towns across America since 1976. It is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees.

More than 3,400 communities have made the commitment to becoming a Tree City USA. They have achieved Tree City USA status by meeting four core standards of sound urban forestry management: maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.
