Colonial Blue half size poly binders are made to fit half-size sheets measuring 8 ½" H x 5 ½" W, as well as being a bit wider to allow for index tabs. The poly material they are made from is extremely durable; it won't crack or tear over time and can't be damaged by water, so will last you for years to come. Because of their ability to withstand water without damage, poly binders are a popular choice for hospitals, clean rooms, laboratories, and other locations that need to be able to wipe the binder clean as needed, even using disinfecting wipes and soap. The mini size and flexibility make half size poly plastic binders a popular choice for other industries as well, including churches and travelling groups. The huge selection of colors, popular ring sizes, even several different gauge (thickness) options means we are sure to have just what you need. From basic colors such as black poly binders and white poly binders, to the more vibrant colors, such as red, yellow, and blue poly binders in several hues. Take a look at our color swatch above for a full list, and consider requesting a sample by calling (866) 537-2244 so you can see it in-person before you buy. In addition to all these wonderful features, our poly plastic binders are made with up to 75% post consumer waste (PCW) and are considered an environmentally friendly product. Pair these mini binders with half size index tabs and sheet protectors for an organized solution. With all these unique aspects, poly ring binders are known as some of the best ring binders on the market.
For the most flexible and cost-friendly option, choose 23 gauge polyethylene; this lightweight poly option is most popular with non-profit organizations, churches, schools, and other groups that have a modest budget available. Though thin and flexible, the poly is still a very durable material that won't tear. We also offer 35 gauge polyethylene, which serves as a perfect middle-ground solution; they are still flexible, but are thicker and offer a bit more stability. These medium weight poly binders are our most popular option, industry-wide. Lastly, we offer a 55 gauge polyethylene binder, which is very thick and sturdy. Though it can still be bent slightly, it is much more rigid than the other options and can't be fully folded by hand without great effort. These durable ring binders are popular for heavy-handling, such as in large corporations and for travelling sales people.
Our poly ring binders are made-to-order and sold in "lots" of 100 binders. The average production time for these binders is bout 6-7 business days, plus transit time. Because they are made to order, this also means that poly binders are not returnable.
We can also customize our poly binders to meet your special needs! Thicker poly including extremely rigid 75 gauge, custom printing and custom pockets, and even custom sizes are available. Visit our custom binder page for more information or call us at (866) 537-2244 for more information.
Binder Dimensions & Sheet Capacities
Wondering how to measure a 3-ring binders size? For our round ring binders, simply measure the inside ring diameter, not the spine width. So a 1" binder will actually have a larger spine, but the ring itself will be 1" in diameter.
