Flooring Roll outs

For all of you who came to HOW and saw us at booth 215 it was a pleasure to meet you and hang out! Here are a few of our photos of HOW and Boston:
We enjoyed meeting everyone and for those who were not there, a lot of our working conversations trended around sustainable 3-ring binders, digitally printed binders, glue-less pocket folders and the recyclable binder, folder and box options. ( If you want a small glue less pocket folder sample – let us know!)
But we also covered the weather, coffee, paper options, crazy things all you designers are working on, the US census (great meeting you all!), Iowa and a whole lot more.
Thanks for all the great talks HOW Design Live 2014!
A lot of designers work at one point of another with healthcare providers or medical device manufactures.
Whether you are creating patient information packets, medical supply information kits or anything else everyday or for the first time, we would like to share what we see happening in medical information kits.
From presentation binders, pocket folders, 3-ring binders and boxes, we see the trends as they happen.
Come check out our page on the trends we see in patient and medical information kits! We update as we get new projects in, so it is worth checking in regularly!
How do you decide between a pocket folder, presentation binder or a 3-ring binder?
First off I am going to assume that you know what each of these items are. (if not, scoot down to the bottom of the post – just don’t tell anyone)
Time to talk to yourself. If you can answer these questions, it will make your choice easier:
Get a 3-ring Binder –
if over 220 sheets of paper, it needs to last and or is heavily used.
The more paper you need to use and the more heavily used your information is, I would suggest a 3-ring binder. The heavier board means it will stand up to abuse better and keep looking great. And also, the weight of all that paper risks pulling a rivet out of a presentation binder.
These are great for proposals – especially in Engineering and Construction – interior design, sample kits, car companies, and a lot of other uses. Also ideal for conferences and important meetings. Added bonus of branding for quality, sturdiness and design possibilities.
Get a Presentation Binder –
if under 220 sheets of paper, paper needs to be locked in and/or there is some variable paper (presentation binders have pockets too!)
Presentation binders straddle the hardback 3-ring binder and a pocket folder in that they have pockets and a ring. The paperboard is not as sturdy as a 3-ring binder, so if it is going to be heavily used over a longer period of time – consider going to the 3-ring binder.
Many healthcare information packets use presentation binders for a few reasons: It only gets heavy use for a limited period of time, pockets allow extra information to be easily stored and the rings hold the important information in place.
Get a Pocket Folder –
if you have a smaller amount of paper that may need to be accessed out of order.
Sometimes a pocket folder is the ideal thing. Great branding possibilities, easy to cary and organizes all of your papers in a flash.
We have seen a lot of these in healthcare and financial information packets, and for anything that just needs to hold less, but important, paper.
Printed or plain 18pt or 22pt paper with pockets that is folded so the pockets are on the inside. Usually with 1 or 2 pockets that can be horizontal or vertical. All this brings a huge amount of variations of pocket styles, capacity pockets…
A heavy recycled board (in our case 94pt to 110pt and 100% post consumer waste) that can be bare, wrapped in cloth or printed paper sheets with a 3-ring mechanism to hold various amounts of paper. We case and line our binders like a hardcover book. Why? So they are the strongest 3-ring binders in the world.
