Pro-Click FAQs

Have some questions about Pro-Click bindings? Check out our most frequently asked questions below, or if you don't see the answer you are looking for, give us a call at (866) 537-2244 so we can assist you.


1. Do you have more colors?
Sorry, but no. Currently, GBC is only manufacturing Pro-Click spines in black and navy blue, and Pro-Click cassettes in black, navy blue, white, and frost/clear.


2. What hole pattern does Pro-Click use?
Pro-Click bindings are compatible with a 3:1 pitch punching pattern, which has three holes for every inch of the binding spine. The spines have 32 loops on them for a standard 11-inch letter size page.


3. Are they flimsy?
Although Pro-Click spines are made of plastic, we can tell you with confidence that, no, they are not flimsy. The hard resin plastic keeps yor pages straight so the book does not flex around.


4. Can I get a larger size?
The largest size of Pro-Click spines available is a 5/8 inch spine, which holds about a maximum of 100 sheets of standard copy paper (20# bond). Unfortunately, GBC is not currently making any larger sizes. If you need to bind larger, consider plastic comb (can bind up to 425 sheets) or a 2:1 wire binding (can bind up to 260 sheets).


5. Does ProClick require a binding machine?
A machine is not required to bind with ProClick, but your pages will need to be punched. If you don't have a 3:1 pitch wire puncher, you will need to invest in one, or manually punch each hole. There are pre-punched paper and covers available in some select styles
