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.

1 Color Printing
(Spot Color)
1 Color Printing for Custom Binders
1 Color printing is one of the most popular options, as it offers the ability to quickly and inexpensively provide a custom branded piece. Our ink is very opaque, which allows us to print even white or light-colored ink onto black or dark-colored poly. If you want the color to pop even more, there is an option to add a hit of white below your design to help. 1 color printing on poly binders can be done on the front cover, spine, back cover, or even on the inside of the binder.

At Binding101 we offer a huge selection of custom binder styles, and in this video, we will briefly discuss each so that you can better decide which style is best for your needs.

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*. They offer an upscale appeal, and can be wrapped in textured linens, thick vinyls, and even genuine leather. 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. They can be custom printed with 1, 2, or 3 colors, or 4 color process. Thicker chipboards can also be made with a euro-hinge rounded spine.

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. Check out the links in the description to learn more, or call us today at (866)537-2244 for a competitive quote.

* The minimum quantity for custom binders that is listed above is the starting minimum, and may vary depending on the specific customization needs. Some of the printing options are only available on certain binder materials as well.

Frequent Asked Questions

Is there a bulk discount for 1,000 custom poly binders? 1 color. 1.5 inch. Medium weight. Thanks!

Answer by Binding101
What are the poly "gauges"?
Asked by Customer

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.

What kind of file do you need for printing?
Asked by Customer

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).
