Best Value Products of 2018

December 19, 2018

If you're wondering where you can get the most value for your dollar here at Binding101, then read on! These products were determined to offer customers the best value for several reasons...

    • They're very popular. We listen to our customers and when they buy a lot of a specific product, then that product is clearly of high value to them!
    • The price is incredibly competitive. We are pretty competitive with other sellers across the board, but these products in particular can't be found anywhere else for a price like ours.
    • They're top-quality. When we sell an item for what seems like a low price, it is important to know that it has always stood up to our testing, proving it as a good quality product. Just because you find a low price at Binding101, doesn't mean you are getting a flimsy product.

With those points in mind, here are the top 5 Binding101 products that offer you the most value and the most bang-for-your-buck.

1. Self-Stick Foam Mounting Board

#1 Best Value of 2018: Self-Stick Foam Boards

One of our best sellers has absolutely nothing to do with binding! Who would have guessed when our company name is "Binding101" huh? Well, it is actually foam mounting board that was consistently at the top of our best sellers list throughout 2018. More specifically, the white self-stick foam board in 32" x 40" and 24" x 36" sizes.

2. Black Vinyl Report Covers

#2 Best Value Product: Vinyl Binding Covers

Vinyl covers offer customers incredibly high value; they are arguably the most professional plain binding covers on the market. The premium vinyl material looks and feels like a piece of leather. These faux leather covers have a textured surface on one side, and a smooth surface on the other. While many colors and sizes are available, the black letter size covers are the most popular option. They can really elevate the look of any presentation or report, adding the look of expense without the price.

3. Half Size Mini Poly Binders

#3 Best Value Product: Half Size Poly Plastic Ring Binders

Poly binders are incredibly durable and strong, while also being more affordable than other binders on the market. The poly material is easy to wipe clean and won't warp when wet, which is another reason why they are so popular for schools, outdoor nature groups, churches, hospitals, and doctors' offices. Plus the HUGE variety of colors make them fit well with any company branding, and even the ability to choose the poly thickness. This gives you more control over the budget by getting a thinner 23 gauge, or lets you get a non-bendable binder in a 55 gauge (plus in-between options). They can also be custom printed for a very fair price, and are actually our most popular custom product as well!

4. Binding Rings

#4 Best Value Product: Loose Leaf Book Binding Rings

Book binding rings are incredibly popular! They're actually our #2 most popular sold product EVER. Durable, versatile, and (let's face it) fun, loose leaf rings are consistently one of our top sellers each month. The 3/4" and 1" sizes are especially loved. We sell these book rings in packs of 100 which helps keep the per-piece price incredibly low; compare it to a 5-pack or 10-pack from a craft store and you will see a huge price difference.

5. Fastback Binding Strips

#5 Best Value Product: Fastback Tape Binding Strips

Coming in a close 5th place is a variety of our Fastback tape binding strips. One of the reasons these are so popular is because we have clearance pricing on several sizes, colors, and binding strip styles. Not many online suppliers offer closeout sale pricing on these Fastback stripes. Super Strips are the most sold, but Composition Strips and LX Strips are also right up there.
