Ring Binder Capacity Chart - How to Choose the Ring Size

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.

Keep in mind that ring binders are measured based on the inside ring diameter, and not the actual spine of the cover. So, for example, 1" ring binders will have a 1" ring diameter, however, the spine itself will be wider.

1 ½" Ring 310 Sheets 1" Thick Stack
2" Ring 450 Sheets 1 ½" Thick Stack
2 ½" Ring 540 Sheets 2" Thick Stack
3" Ring 650 Sheets 2 ½" Thick Stack

Custom Vinyl Binder FAQs:

Q: Can you pad vinyl binders?
Yes, padded binders are a great way to add elegance, as well as create a thicker surface for decorations such as blind debossing. We can pad just the front cover, or include the spine and back with padding - whatever your preference, we can get it done.


Q: Can I have 4 color process printed on vinyl binders?
Yes, we do offer full color printing on vinyl binders for higher quantity needs. If you need a smaller quantity, consider an entrapment binder instead, which offers the same great look, at a less expensive price point.


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.

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 customize a ring binder with your 1 color logo, contact information, and more, keeping the price low while still giving you a one-of-a-kind look. Our ink is very opaque, which allows us to print light colored ink (such as white) onto dark materials (like black). Some materials could use a little extra pop in this case, however, so can opt in for a 1 color + white underlay, which puts down 1 hit of white ink below your design so the colors of your ink are sure to pop.

2 Color Printing
(Spot Color)

2 Color Printing for Custom Binders
2 Color printing offers more versatility, so you can create a more vibrant look that will grab the attention of your clients. Whether you are printing a 2 color logo, or you just have a 1 color logo but want text written in a different color, this is a great option.

3 Color Printing
(Spot Color)

3 Color Printing for Custom Binders
3 Color printing offers even more versatility, so you can print more complicated logos. To the left you will see that white, red, and orange were printed onto a black binder. The black that you see in the design is called a "reverse print" which is empty space that shows the color of the vinyl. You can also see that the colors touch each other, which is called "close registration".

4 Color Process
(Full Color)

4 Color Process + Full Printing for Custom Binders
4 Color process, also known as full color, is a premium solution for those who wish to print photos, graphic designs, and more onto ring binders. This is a popular choice for large corporations and brand names that will not modify their brand image to keep costs low. With a 4CP custom binder there is no limit to the number of colors, tints, or shades that can be printed. The minimum for printing 4 color process direct onto vinyl starts at 250 binders. If you need fewer than that, but still want the full color look, consider custom entrapment binders as an alternative.

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).

(Available on Some or All Sides)

Padding for Custom Binders
Padding adds class and looks expensive. It gives a soft appeal that helps you binder stand out from others on the shelf. We can pad just the front cover, or can also pad the spine and back covers. Padding can be done as the only customization for a ring binder, or we can add printing (1 color shown), a deboss (see below), or a foil stamp (see above).

Blind Debossing
(Available on Padded Binders)

Blind Deboss on Padded Custom Binders
A blind deboss is an impression that is pressed into a padded ring binder without any color, creating a depressed design that looks expensive and classy. It is especially popular for high end restaurants and corporations that want an understated look for their custom branded products.

Deboss with Print
(Available on Padded Binders)

Padding for Custom Binders
Depending on the deboss design you use, color can be printed along with it to create a depressed design that also has that extra pop. With a deboss/printing combination custom binder, you get the classy look of the pressed-in logo, with the clear edges that the color contrast adds.

Deboss with Foil
(Available on Padded Binders)

Padding for Custom Binders
With a deboss and foil stamp you can blend the depressed stamped look with the pop of a metallic foil. The edges are crisp and easy to read, and the pressed-in look is expensive -- this look is sure to impress your clients.
