How to Choose the Best Comb Binding Size

The best way to ensure the correct diameter of comb for your book is to assemble the entire book (including covers), let it lay flat and loose on the table (do not press down), and measure the thickness of the stack. Then add 1/8" to that measurement to get the comb diameter recommendation. For example, if your book was 1" thick you would want a 1 ⅛" comb diameter size. If between sizes, we recommend you go with the larger option to ensure that your book pages will turn smoothly and easily. You can also use the chart below to choose a size based on approximate sheet capacity.


The sheet capacities listed below are approximations, determined using standard 20 lb. bond copy paper; the actual sheet capacity will vary depending on what paper stock and covers you are using.

We offer a selection of customization opportunities to our traditional plastic binding combs, including custom printing and custom cut-to-size pieces.

For custom printed combs, we can produce either pad printed or silk screened designs that contain simple logos and text. Silk screening combs is a process of printing where a fine stencil is created in the shape of your design. The stencil is placed on the comb, and the ink is then rolled on. Pad printing uses a stamping method that uses a pad that is pressed into an ink plate, distributing ink in the shape of your design. Depending on the design complexity, comb size, and color combinations, our printing experts will make select the printing type that will produce the highest quality and clearest finished image. Both printing methods produce a crisp and sharp image that will represent your company brand in a way that you can be proud of.

To choose what comb size you need, assemble your book, including covers and all content, and let it lay loose on your table without pressing down on the top. Measure the stack thickness and add 1/8" to that measurement. So for example, if your book is 1" thick, then a 1 ⅛" comb is recommended. If your measurement is between sizes, then choose the larger size to ensure you book has enough room so the pages turn easily. Below we have also put together a chart with approximate sheet capacities fort each size, based strictly on standard 20# bond copy paper, as well as showing you the shape of the comb and whether or not they feature locks. The larger combs with locks are needed to add extra support to the plastic to ensure pages are kept in the book.
