Our Corporate Image custom printed binders are made from high quality book binders board, produced from 100% post consumer waste. A remarkably clean board, our binders board is light gray with small flecks of color in it.

The hinges on our binders will never fail because they are pressed into the board with a unique computer controlled machine. These hinges were tested by an independent lab, US Testing, and after more than 250,000 flexes, the hinge showed little wear.

We offer bare board binders, flush cut binders, custom printed binders – all 100% recyclable.

Our heritage is book binding and we use that knowledge and craftsmanship in every custom binder, folder and box. You can count on it.

Foil Stamping Adds Impact to Your Custom Binder

The Fuego binder is a bare board binder with a single color of foil stamping.

Enhance Your Custom Folder with Lamination

Lamination adds strength and makes your graphics more brilliant

Lamination is a film of nylon, polyester, or polypropylene. All of these films are inert and none are harmful to the environment. They can be safely recycled. When applied to paper, the paper can be repulped and the plastic film will be separated and recycled with other plastics. Corporate Image offers gloss, semigloss and natural matte lamination films. All Corporate Image laminations are available with either a gloss or linen finish. Our polypropylene natural matte film has become the most popular because it is non-reflective and has a smooth, silky feel.

The Corporate Image Difference

We specialize in first impressions

Corporate Image is in the business of creating good first impressions. One of our presentation packages, whether it’s a custom binder, folder or box speaks volumes about a company, product or service. The Corporate Image difference extends far beyond our printing ability. Nowhere is our attention to detail more evident than in the care and thought which have gone into the design and engineering of our basic styles. Each is designed to meet a specific presentation packaging need.

Should one of our basic styles not meet your presentation packaging needs, our internal package designer can help you create a custom binder, folder or box and send a mock-up. Whatever your presentation project, we’ll design a distinctive professional package. Also, we make your job easy! We’ll email a template into which you can drop your art and after we receive it, we’ll review it and send you a color proof to approve. When the job is finished, it is shipped fully assembled or flat if you wish to conserve valuable space.

We’re becoming a  leading source for quality presentation packaging. Our products and services set us apart from the rest.    Printing standards are very high, which is evident when you receive your job. We use offset presses that are dedicated to printing only covers, so our pressmen go the extra distance to get the color right. We’re in the business of creating good first impressions. And that’s the Corporate Image difference.

Green Innovations in Custom Binders

Eco Friendly, Smart, Durable and Innovative Bare Board Binders

Bare Board Binders from Corporate Image are the perfect choice for clients who want to express their environmental values through a more earth friendly, recyclable product. We were an eco sensitive company long before “green” was mainstream. We built our headquarters on a reclaimed business park more than a decade ago literally recycling a junkyard into a beautifully landscaped campus. And that was just the start.

Our custom binder, originally called the FlexHinge Binder, was the first true American alternative to toxic vinyl binders. Constructed from recycled 100% post-consumer waste binders board covered with printed sheets or bookbinding fabrics, these binders will provide decades of service. When it’s time to discard them, the paper, fabric, metal and board can all be recycled.

The Bare Board Binder is just that…bare board, but it can be foil stamped or embossed to give it a distinctive look. The textural quality and simplicity will make a powerful impact on your audience. In addition, spine wraps in cloth or paper bring a unique look to your Bare Board Binder.
