Custom Poly / Plastic Ring Binders

Item #: CUSTOMBINDERS_POLY

Custom poly binders are a very popular choice, especially for schools and churches. The poly material is a eco-friendly plastic that can be made in a variety of thicknesses, from flexible to rigid, as well as a huge selection of colors, including even translucent and tinted colors. There are several reasons why custom plastic binders are so popular: for one, they are inexpensive. The per-piece price of these ring binders is one of our least expensive options, so can fit well into nearly any budget. They are also easy to clean, so getting wet will not damage the material. And they are also very durable, outlasting many other binder types, as the poly resists tearing and cracking, even with heavy use. For a fully customized binder package, request a quote for our custom index tab dividers.

Minimum Order Requirement: 100 Binders

Ring Binder Capacity Chart - How to Choose a Binder Ring Size

Determining the best ring size for your needs using the ring capacity chart below. The sheet capacity listed is based on standard 20 lb. bond copy paper, so the most accurate way to determine the best ring size is by the stack capacity, as it doesn't matter what type of paper you are binding for this to be accurate. If you are between sizes, always go with the larger size to allow for easier page-turning and room to grow. Note that ring binders are measured based on the ring size, which is not the same thing as the spine size; the spines will be larger, as the ring size is measured by the actual inside ring diameter.

Custom Poly Binder FAQs:

Q: What are the poly "gauges"?
Gauge refers to the thickness of the material itself. Poly binders are most popular in a 23 gauge, 35 gauge, or 55 gauge (thicker 75 gauge is also available). They are listed from lightweight and flexible to heavy weight and rigid. Take a look at the photo gallery to see how the three most popular thicknesses compare to each other, placed next to a pencil for scale. Polypropylene (tinted colors) gauges are slightly different (20 gauge, 30 gauge), but look the same in photos.

To compare to an inch measurement, simply move the decimal point five spaces to the left. To compare to a mil measurement, move the decimal two places to the left. So, for example, a 23 gauge poly is equal to 0.23 mil or a 0.00023 inches.

 

Q: Do you have more options?
Yes! Our options for custom poly/plastic ring binders are truly limitless; please call our custom binder experts at (866)537-2244 to discuss your exact needs, so they can guide you in the right direction.

 

Q: What kind of file do you need for printing?
To guarantee the high-quality standards we live by, we require high-quality files for printing. Please take a look at our artwork requirements to see the file type and size that we require. If you need help, we have an art department that can often assist with certain kinds of modifications (they are not designers).
