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!

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.

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.

Great 3-ring Binder Designs of the Month

This month, we picked three binder projects ranging from half sheet sized bar menu binders to large 5 fold architectural binders.

 

Gray’s Tied House

Custom printed menu and bar binders- Corporate Image

About Gray’s Tied House:

Gray’s Tied House is a contemporary version of the traditional tied house that emerged in england during the 18th and 19th centuries. During that time beer was available at two types of public houses (pubs). A “tied house” was owned by a brewery and sold only beer that it brewed, while a “free house” was privately owned and featured beers from multiple breweries.

As the name implies, gray’s tied house serves products manufactured by the gray brewing company founded in 1856 by joshua gray, an irish immigrant. Since then, gray’s has continued it’s tradition of producing the finest handcrafted beers, ales and sodas in its quaint brewery and bottling facility in Janesvile, Wisconsin.

How to make a Graphic Designer happy.

A: Make their life easier.

Graphic designers work long hours for customers who have vague and changing idea of what they need and want. Generally, by the time a project is ready to go, there is a rush because of last minute changes.

Sound familiar?

Our sales team have over 50 years of collective experience in printing processes, materials, coatings, sizing and finishing techniques and will work to get you what you want when you need it. We can send samples and even mock-ups of new products to test sizing and fit.

You will also get custom templates to make art set ups easy. Did something change in your design brief? Our in-house product design team can re-design, re-size and work with you to match your new specifications.

As an employee owned business, each and every one of our owner / employees watches out to make sure your project is perfect – from printing to packing – so you don’t have to worry about last minute “surprises” when your customer opens their order.

How many pages do pocket folders hold?

Knowing how much paper a pocket folder holds can keep your presentation, conference or meeting neat and organized.

1 or 2 pocket folders with flat pockets

A flat pocket in a pocket folder and a flat spine will hold about 15 sheets, which means a 2 pocket folder can hold 30 sheets.  This may mean your folder feels pretty full and has a bit more heft.

1 or 2 pocket folder with a capacity spine

The capacity spine is very helpful, even with a flat pocket.  The pocket folder doesn’t bow open and so sits better when full. Added bonus, each pocket can hold 20 sheets. So a 1 pocket folder would hold 20 sheets, a 2 pocket – 40 sheets.

Pocket folders with capacity pockets

There are two possibilities here.

Expandable pockets can hold up to 50 sheets of paper (each). These pockets sit flat until you need them, then they fold out. Great if you have variable amounts of data  that you need to hand out.

Box pockets in pocket folders are the other option.  These can be as big as 1/2″ to 3/4″ so they hold a lot of paper. We would suggest looking at other options at the 3/4″ size, as the weight of the paper can become an issue. Also, if you are creating a 2 pocket folder with box pockets, you may consider 1 flat pocket and 1 box pocket or two smaller box pockets for stability.

When designing your next custom pocket folder, try to get an idea of how it will be used and if there is a set amount of materials going into it.  The expandable pocket folder offers the most range if the materials are variable.

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.

Fully cased and lined like a hardcover book, these binders look great, are stronger than any other binder.

How does this compare to a vinyl binder?

It doesn’t.

From art possibilities, strength and quality of construction, to sustainability, a Corporate Image binder is better in every way. Our printing is better, the binders last longer, don’t poison the environment or go to landfills, and they feel better in the hand.

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.

Spot UV – Add excitement to your print pieces

Spot UV – Add excitement to your print pieces

UV coatings are one of the range of print finishes and textures that you can use to make your art jump off of the page (or binder). We have found that a lot of designers haven’t worked with these finishes a lot, so we are offering a little series on print finishes.

What is spot UV and how can I use it on my binders, folders, and boxes?

UV (ultraviolet) Coatings start as a clear liquid that is dried or cured with an ultra violet light. This is printed in-line on a UV press. This is often seen in a gloss or matte, though it is available in textures (like sandpaper among others). While you can flood an entire piece with UV, we most often see it used in spot coverage, highlighting text and images, or in the case of the image below, the spot UV creates the design elements of the folder.  Subtle, but effective.

If you are printing a pocket folder, binder or box, you are probably laminating your materials to protect the whole piece from the rough and tumble life marketing materials go through. The nice thing about spot UV is that it can be applied after the lamination offering more opportunities to pop your art even more.

Liners: Get the Most out of Your Printed 3-ring Binders

The liner of a 3-ring binder is not just a blank space that the interior pages cover, it is a rich design space that adds life, information and interest to your design project.

Good things to know about 3 ring binder liners:

  1. When you are printing more that 250 binders, they print of our offset printing press.  This means that a matching fully printed liner is FREE at Corporate Image. Say you have a 4 color process cover, print the liner 4cp at no extra cost!
  2. People see the cover on the shelf, and when the binder is closed on a desk. People see the liner when they are looking at your information. The chances are they will spend a lot more time looking at the liner than the cover of your binder!

Printing architectural folders for flooring or carpet samples? Your information, product placement guides, specs and more are part of your liner. Ringless binders, or sample folders, are just one way a printed binder liner can help reinforce your message.
