Just open the covers all the way up, insert your photos or pages, and close the covers to finish your book -- that's it, you're done!

Pinchbook hard covers make a beautiful photo gift for special occasions, and are the perfect POP point of purchase display item for your print studio or shipping store. They are so easy to use that anyone can do it, and they're safe for all ages. A huge variety of colors and sizes are available, including those with windows and in either a linen cloth or a faux vegan leather. No expensive equipment or tools are required -- they're ready to go out-of-the-box!

"Pinchbook" hardcovers are the fastest and easiest way to bind a hard cover presentation, without equipment of any kind. That's right, there is no machine needed to bind with these hardcovers. To use: just open the covers, insert your pages into the patented spine slot, and close the covers again. This simple process means you can actually bind presentations manually in as few as about 5 seconds each, making them great for on-demand and last-minute presentations, as well as those larger events.

In addition to creating a professional presentation for clients of all kinds, Pinchbooks are a popular choice for print shops and photo studios to make photobooks for customers, as well as offer quick point-of-purchase displays. No matter your intended use, a hardcover like this will help you up your presentation game.

Simply pull back the cover to make the spring-clamp open, insert the pages and snap the cover closed. The stop at the bottom of the spine ensures that all of the pages are perfectly aligned and held securely. If a mistake is made, simply reopen and adjust the pages. This editable feature ensures you will never have a wasted book or ruined print. These DIY hard cover books are reusable, expandable, and use no messy glues to hold the pages together.
