This binder for the Des Moines Art Festival (an excellent Arts Festival by the way) was designed by Kayli Kunkel and just came off the line yesterday. When we got a look at it, we were excited. When the Art Festival saw it – well lets say they were very pleased:

If you need custom 3-ring binders for a conference, meeting or proposal, you know that most of the options out there are slim pickings. Perhaps you could get away with a screened vinyl binder if you had to, but does it really represent your company well?
Now you have an option that not only gives you the quality of image, but the quality of construction that shows the attention to detail and craftsmanship that you put into every aspect of your company.
Custom Digital Binder stats and information:
The Corporate Image digital binder combines all of quality we are known for with the lower quantities you sometimes need. Call today to get samples or more information!
A digitally printed binder allows you to make your binders in quantities of 50 and up, which is great for proposals, meetings and conference information binders.
There are a few differences in how the artwork is treated and how they need to be submitted that we should discuss.
1. Formats for submitting
2. Corrections to artwork
Formats for submitting your artwork:
We ask that your binder art be submitted in PDF format. This insures that your art doesn’t shift, modify or lose elements when sending us the files.
What is a PDF file? Glad you asked. We turn to Wikipedia:
Since the art work is encapsulated in one file, what we print is exactly what you designed and sent. How do you find where to output a PDF file? Good question. In the Adobe design suite you should look where you save your files:
Corrections to design / art files
Remember that whole PDF thing? This means if there is an error when we open your file (art is misplaced in relation to the template, we noticed something mis-spelled… something like that), we will let you know what is wrong and you will need to correct it.
Double check everything before sending files to save time. Also keep your work files until the job is done. I am sure you do anyway in case a client calls and needs a later version with some changes, but we still wanted to mention it.
Layout of your Digitally Printed Binder
Turned Edge = The part of the cover that gets folded into the inside of a binder.
Any artwork that runs to the end of the turn-in should probably not have text that needs to be read, but continues your design into the binder. All text that needs to be read on the cover should be at least 1/8″ away from the “edge of binder” line. There can be 1/16th of an inch shift of the cover in manufacturing the binder, so if text is too close to the edge there is a possibility it will get lost.
I am going to refer you to How to Use a Binder Template #1 on this one, but wanted to re-iterate: In North America you read a book spine by placing your right ear on your shoulder, in Europe the left ear to shoulder. Check it out to make sure you are right. We don’t know who your customers are, so can’t second guess you.
This series will continue so keep an eye out and email us your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. For the subject “Hey! I have a question!”

This is a project we did with Chicos for their White House Black Market boutique chain. The product is a QuickShip binder that can ship in as little as 5 days and can be ordered in quantities as low as 50 binders. The idea for the QuickShip came from repeated requests for a unique product that could be produced quickly. The result is a binder covered in black, recycled paper to which we attach a printed, spine wrap or you can use just the spine wrap over bare board for a more natural look. There is a thin layer of Natural Matte lamination on the printed wrap to protect and enhance the graphics.
Short run, fast turn around custom 3-ring binders
The Quickship binder has a full-color, printed spine wrap is applied to either a bare board binder or to a black 3-ring binder. These 2 options are available in quantities from 50 to 1,500 with your choice of 3 chrome D-ring sizes.
If you need binders for your next board meeting, proposal or conference Corporate Image offers a great custom option giving you unlimited design potential. On top of that, we ship within 5 working days of getting your order, so you can get it when you need it.
