Manual Comb Binding Machines

A manual comb binding machine is a great choice for smaller schools, offices, and churches that want the ability to make their own plastic-bound documents whenever they want. Comb binding is one of the most cost-effective ways to bind pages together, making it very sustainable for businesses of all kinds. These systems will have manual punching that is operated by a handle, and most may also have a comb opener that is controlled by a second, smaller handle.

Manual comb binding equipment is ideal for anyone who needs to bind less than about 100 books per month. They are user-friendly, so anyone in your office can easily use them as-needed, while still offering clean and professional finishing. Starting at only about $160, small plastic binding machines can easily fit into even some of the tightest budgets, quickly paying for themselves in the avoidance of outsourcing time and costs. Plus, the consumables (the plastic binding spines) are also incredibly affordable, making them inexpensive in the long-term as well. But don’t let the low prices fool you, because our collection of manual comb binding machines excuse quality and are built to last.

Plastic comb binding is an economical choice that employs PVC plastic comb spines with round rings that are spread apart and then closed around a stack of paper. Along with the economical price benefits, this binding method is preferred for applications such as cookbooks and manuals that will be stacked on shelves because of the ability to custom print on the spines. Plastic binder spines can also be opened and closed as often as you need, making for simple editing of your documents should you find a typo, or simply want to add or remove some pages.

At Binding101, we are backed by nearly 90 years in the industry, and lifelong partnerships with the most world-renowned brands like Akiles, Fellows, and Tamerica. These manufacturers ensure that every machine is built to high standards, and the high user ratings and longevity speak to that point.
