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.
Digitally printed tab dividers

Standard Tab Dividers

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.

Keystone Designers binder
We really appreciated the elegance of design for the Keystone Designer 3-ring binder and tab dividers. We also identify with the way they operate!
The binder features a 4 color process cover, with a Pearl Linen Smoke Screen spine wrap. On the cloth spine wrap is an elegant white matte foil.
The binder liner is white with a set of one color printed tab dividers that keep the attention and focus on the products within.
Corporate Image re-created the 3-ring binder for you.
Your binder is strong, sustainable with a huge range of custom and printing options. Before you go planning window cuts, spot UV and other finishing options, make sure you have a good grasp on the basics.
What are you putting in your 3 ring binder?
Before you make any other decisions or hunt through hundreds of pictures of 3 ring binders, find out how many pages and other materials you need. This will clarify ring size, which gives a clear picture of what style of binder, 3-ring mechanism and how strong your binder needs to be.
Knowing the page count of your materials (and whether it vary) is key to determining ring size. Adding pamphlets, samples or give-aways, USB drives or other objects lets you know how large the spine of the binder might need to be.
If your information is in protective sleeves, we will also have to make sure tab dividers and front and back binder covers fit.
How many sheets of paper does a binder ring hold?
This depends on what style of ring you choose. A D-ring and a round ring hold the paper differently and have different benefits.
In a D-ring, the ring is shaped like a backward “D” so the paper is held evenly on the right, your tab dividers all line up and there is a clean line of paper. Some people find the harder to turn the pages quickly with a D-ring binder ( though a slant D-ring solves this problem). A D-ring always mounts on the back panel of a binder – not the spine – so the paper rests on the flat part of the ring when it is closed. This makes the cover a little wider. If you need a small ring, it is good to know there is no 1/2″ D-ring.
Round ring binders (O ring)
A round ring can mount on the spine of a binder, so the covers, front and back, are a little shorter. It is easy to turn pages since it is a continuous curve. The issue with seeing tab dividers toward the bottom of the stack of information is negligible in smaller rings and up to you to decide if it is an issue in large rings. A lot of people don’t see it as a problem. For people with small paper needs – you can get a 1/2″ O ring binder!
Picking a Binder for A4, US standard or Notebook binders
It is good to know that there are different sizes of paper depending on where you are in the world and what you need.
US standard paper is 8.5″ x 11″ and generally uses a 3-ring set up in a binder. This paper sized in used in the US, parts of Mexico and most of the time, Canada.
A4 paper sizes are used in Europe and most of the rest of the world. A4 paper is 8.3″ x 11.7″ which is very similar, but the binder needs to be resized to make sure it fits correctly. If you are in the US and think the A4 size looks arbitrary, it is a much more intuitive paper sizing – with A1 half of a sheet of A0, A2 is half of A1 …. Clever. A4 rings are either a 4 ring set up or a 2 ring set up, so make sure you know what your end needs are
Notebook sized paper can vary, but generally a half sheet of US standard paper. The sheets are 5.5″ x 8.5″ so you get a nice small binder. These are also generally a 3 ring set-up.
Have fun with your custom binders! Just make sure the basics of how many pages and what sized paper are taken care of!
