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!

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.

How to make a Graphic Designer happy.

A: Make their life easier.

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.

custom printed 2 pocket folders - corporate image

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.

capacity pocket pocket folders - Corporate Image

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.

expandable capacity pocket pocket folders - Corporate Image

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.

Spot UV – Add excitement to your print pieces

Spot UV – Add excitement to your print pieces

custom portfolio binder with closures

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.

Printed, sustainable pocket folder with spot UV - Corporate Image

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.

Print Facts: The Sustainability of a 3-ring Binder

Business is seeing the benefits of creating a more sustainable workplace.

From health benefits, happier employees, benefits to the environment and sizable savings in spending, sustainability is a winning, and growing, movement.

print facts - news and discussion on print materials - Corporate Image

Together with our sister company, Naked Binder, our 3 decades of being a sustainable manufacturer have helped us raise the bar for the entire North American binder and presentation products field. Corporate Image creates products that will last, but not at the cost of the environment.

Why not vinyl?

Why not vinyl? So many reasons.

Economic: Vinyl binders fall apart. The hinges are weak and affected by both heat and cold. This means you replace them constantly. A well made binder – like those made by Corporate Image or Naked Binder – has been tested to 250,000 flexes – so the cover won’t fall off even if you use it 20 times a day for 30 years.

Health: The plasticizers in your vinyl binder are toxic. A vinyl binder will off-gas for it’s lifetime, affecting the air in your office or home. These toxins are released into our ground water from landfill and add to issues of the approx 9300 landfill fires every year.

Sustainability: Add to this, that vinyl is not recycled in the U.S. except for a small amount during the manufacturing process, and massive amounts of vinyl are being landfilled every year.

Recyclable save money.

Money spent on waste disposal can be cut down, especially in large corporations where you can potentially have a warehouse with 10-30,000 vinyl binders that need to go to hazardous waste disposal.

Cutting down your waste stream by diverting recyclables to where they be reused saves you money, protects the environment, cuts landfill and uses less resources than making products with virgin resources.

Recycled materials save the planet.

Corporate Image uses 100% post consumer waste board to create better binders, and we work with many recycled stocks including Neenah papers and folding papers to make your folders, boxes and packaging!

 

So many more options for sustainable binders, folders and boxes.

sustainable, printed 3-ring binders - Corporate Image

Great range of options and benefits

A sustainable 3-ring binder, box or pocket folder from Corporate Image is not only crafted with outstanding quality, our products are stronger, have better printing and more options. Our 3-ring binders were tested to 250,000 flexes (opening and closings) without failing. That means your binder could last over 30 years if you use it 20 times a day. Instead of replacing your materials every few months you can use them for years, saving you money.

Print options: Need spot UV or varnish? 4 color process with spot colors? Mixed materials – say a cloth and printed binder? Foil stamping and debossed logos? Vinyl and plastics don’t have the same range of options we can offer you to make your presentation or sample kit stand out.

Printed, sustainable pocket folder with spot UV - Corporate Image

Best of all, our 3-ring binders, pocket folders, boxes and packaging are all 100% recyclable and don’t off-gas. No landfill or toxic gasses in your office.

Sustainability in presentation materials is a real thing. Protect the environment, support your green initiatives, save money and increase your influence with a move to better materials!


Alternatives to the Standard Pocket Folder

Upgrade the Look of Your Current Pocket Folder with a Custom Folder

Every business needs a pocket folder. And Corporate Image produces pocket folders that really stand out. We use heavier paper, provide higher lever of print quality, and finish our folders with film lamination that enhances graphics and adds strength. We offer a wide range of economical standard folders that can be customized to fit your needs. You can select custom paper stocks, foil stamp, emboss, deboss and custom die-cuts. Aqueous coating, varnish and spot UV printing are also available.

In addition to our standard 2 pocket folders, we offer folders with file tabs, folders with expanding pockets, 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.

This presentation binder / ring folder is a patient guide for the Loyola Transplant Center.

Offering heart, lung, kidney and liver transplants, Loyola needs to convey serious information in a reassuring way. The information also needs to be easily found – not just a stack of loose papers that could get lost. A presentation binder / ring folder offers pockets for loose papers and brochures, and rings to keep things organized.

A 3 Ring Binder and Folder Make a Great Combination

Playworld 3 ring binder and folder - Corporate Image

 

 

 

PlayWorld’s 3 ring binder and pocket folder highlighted their corporate commitment to sustainability as well as their commitment to fun.

 

Corporate Image specializes in helping you make the most of your presentation packaging needs. We are your partner in creating great impressions that make people stop and look at your materials. The bottom line is we want to help you sell more of your products and services in the marketplace.

Combining your marketing efforts into one cohesive set can be cheaper (by doing everything at once) as well as help you look more professional. Perception of your brand can help drive up your sales and repeat business. From architecture and engineering firms, to hospitals, or financial institutions, being seen as trustworthy can make a world of difference.

A pocket folder and binder offer cohesive branding

We produced this folder and binder for secondmarket, which was really stunning because of the ultra violet coating that highlighted their logos. The binder is covered with B-Cloth, which is a poly-cotton blend that looks great and has a durable finish that resists water.

For even better presentations, try combining your custom 3 ring binder and pocket folders!
