I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
Pinbooks are an innovation! The only cover of their kind, they offer the premium look of a hard cover, with the ease to bind without a machine, and the flexibility to edit your pages whenever you need. These unique covers are popular for users of all kinds, from businesses looking to make VIP client presentations, to photo studios looking to offer an on-demand photobook, to restaurants looking to improve their menus; even individuals can use them for their own photos or documents with the affordable price point and low minimum quantities. So to sum up…I recommend pinchbook covers for… everyone!
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT:
First off, Pinchbooks are the only premium hard cover that lets you bind pages without having to invest in an expensive machine. In the past, the only way to achieve this look would have been to invest in a case maker and gluing machine, usually costing over $10,000. But now, with Pinchbooks, you can achieve a comparable look for only a couple of dollars a book.
Along the same lines, these covers are simple to use; you literally just have to open up the covers until the spine opens, slide in your pages, and then close them again. There is no punching, no gluing, no mess – just simple, fast, effective binding. The patented spine does a surprisingly great job of tightly holding the pages, while still allowing for editing as frequently as you need by just repeating the same steps. Make a mistake? Change out the page. Need to change the whole menu for a new season? Change it as many times as you need to without affecting the integrity and quality of the book. This also means that they are lightspeed fast to make – in fact, they can be bound as quickly as about 5 seconds each.
Pinchbooks also have a lot of sizes to choose from… from small 4x6 photobooks to large 12x12 documents, the choices make it easy to find the perfect fit. Professional colors available include black, navy blue, red, and taupe (additional colors might also be available on clearance while supplies last) and there are two materials available: a linen cloth and a faux vegan leather.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
The primary consideration before you choose Pinchbooks is probably the binding capacity, which has a maximum of 35 sheets of copy paper, or about 25 sheets of photo paper (depending on the stock thickness). This makes them great for smaller presentation and albums, but not suited for larger proposals or reports. Other than the page count, the real only other consideration is the color selection. As a lover of these books, I would like to see a full rainbow of color options to choose from; but alas, that is not the case…not yet at least.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
Pinchbooks are affordable, easy, professional, and require no expensive equipment or messy glue to bind. They allow for frequent editing and come in a variety of size and even material choices so you can find the perfect fit for whatever your need may be. They are suited well for large photo studios and corporate offices, down to the individual crafter looking to make photo gifts. Whatever your business, a hard cover Pinchbook can elevate your document to a whole new level; onlookers will have no idea how little you spent on them.
