First, let’s talk about vinyl binders. They are the most popular option, and what most people picture when they think about the word “ring binder”. They feature a vinyl material that comes in a huge variety of colors, and is wrapped around chipboard to create a stand-up, sturdy display. The minimum order requirements for vinyl binders starts at 50 pieces*, and they can be customized with 1, 2, or 3 color printing, 4 color process, foil stamping, padding, debossing, and more.
Next we have poly binders, a close second in popularity. They are made of a plastic material that comes in different thicknesses, so you can choose from flexible or rigid styles. The variety of colors is huge, and minimum orders start at 100 pieces*. Poly ring binders can be personalized with 1, 2, or 3 color printing, 4 color process, and foil stamping. We can also add clear pockets.
We also offer turned edge binders, with are premium wrapped binders with minimum order requirements starting at 50 pieces*.

Turned edge binders can be customized with 4 color process printing, foil stamping, debossing, and more. They can also be laminated with a variety of finishes.
An entrapment binder is a style of vinyl binder that features a full color printed sheet embedded underneath a clear cover. These are a great alternative for when you want the premium look of full color printing, without the premium price point. Minimum orders start at just 50 binders*, and they can be customized with 4 color process printed sheets, and optional padding.
Chip board binders are a great eco-friendly solution. They can be made from thin and flexible boards or thick boards with a minimum starting at 50 pieces*. No matter which you choose, they are made of 100% recycled chip board, which means that the color of the board itself will vary from brown to gray, and may have little speckles in it.

Paperboard binders are another option that we have, and their minimums start at 250 pieces*. They are made of a flexible paperboard material, and are most commonly printed with 4 color process. They can also be all-over laminated with various coatings.
We also offer custom easel binders, also known as stand-up or flop-chart binders. Easel binders are usually made with vinyl or turned edge materials --so can be customized in the same way as those binders-- and are available in either horizontal or vertical styles.
Lastly, we offer slip case and binder sets, which contain both a ring binder and a box to hold the binder. They can be built to hold a single binder, or many binders, depending on your needs. Slip cases are most commonly made in the turned edge style, and minimums start at 50 pieces*.
Any of our binders can be made in standard or custom sheet sizes, including letter size, half size, legal, memo, and more. We also have 3-ring, 2-ring, 6-ring and specialty rings available.

Frequent Asked Questions
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.

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).
