Custom Turned Edge Binders


If you want a premium-branded ring binder, made to meet even the highest expectations for an upscale appeal, then consider custom turned edge binders. They are made with specialty materials that are wrapped around a sturdy chip board, and can be customized in literally thousands of different ways. Most popular with big brand names and corporations that will not substitute quality and brand-image, these classy custom binders can be made with huge number of materials, including even fabrics and genuine leather; if you have your own fabric you want to supply, we can often even use that. On the inside of the binder most customers choose to have a plain "liner" in either white or black linen, however, the inside can be made with the same material as the front of your binder, and printed, if you prefer. Want a glossy look? We can laminate your printed design on the binder. Call us at (866)537-2244 (866)537-2244 or email info@binding101.com for a custom turned edge binder quote. All of our custom binders are manufactured in the USA, and minimum order requirements start at just 50 binders*, with bulk pricing for higher quantities.

Minimum Order Requirement: 50 Binders

Ring Binder Capacity Chart - How to Choose the Ring Size

Keep in mind that ring binders are measured based on the inside ring diameter, and not the actual spine width. So, for example, 1" ring binders will have a 1" ring diameter, however, the spine itself will be wider. Use the chart below to choose the best ring size for your binder. You can do this by checking the sheet capacity (based on plain 20 lb. bond paper only) or the stack capacity, for a more accurate fit. If between sizes, always choose the larger size to ensure easy page turning and room to grow.

Custom Turned Edge Binder FAQs:

Q: What is the curved spine binder called?
This is called a "Euro Hinge Spine" and is made with our specialized equipment that creates multiple creases on a flat spine and curved them to form the U-shape.


Q: Can you make a box cover for the binders?
Yes, we call this a "slip case". Most commonly they are open on one end for easy sliding in and out of one or more binders, but we can also make boxes with top-loading, wrap-around closures, and anything else you can imagine.


Q: Do you have more options?
Yes! Our options for custom 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?
Please take a look at our artwork requirements to see the file type and size that we require to create the highest quality custom binders. If you need help with the file, we have an art department that can assist with some kinds of modifications.

Foil Stamping
(Solid Color)

Foil Stamping for Custom Binders
Foil stamping is most popular when you want a metallic look, and is especially popular with gold and silver foils. Solid color foils, as well as metallics in other colors are also available. Some customers will even ask for a black foil on a black binder, which gives an understated glossy design look. The foil stamping process may create a very slight depression into the vinyl, but it is not like a deboss (scroll down for info on debossing).

Blind Debossing

Blind Deboss on Padded Custom Binders

The impression does not have any color and creates a depressed design that looks expensive and classy. It is especially popular for high end restaurants and corporations that want an understatded look for their custom branded products.
