The answer will vary depending on the type of construction you select and the quantity you order.
Single color silk screen printed vinyl binders, silk screen printed EarthBinders, and entrapment style full color vinyl binders, in quantities of 500 or less, ship in seven working days after final proof approval.
Other styles generally ship in 15 days after final approval. Larger orders take longer, naturally.
In any case, if you have an urgent deadline, give us a call. If there is any realistic way of meeting your deadline, we’ll do so!
This is by far the most frequent mistake made when ordering custom looseleaf binders, so be sure to read this carefully.
We measure our looseleaf binders according to the inside diameter of the rings. Therefore, when we say “three inch binder”, we are referring to the size of the rings.
We use this system because that means you can know exactly how tall a stack of paper will fit in the custom binder.
Different manufacturers have (slightly) different sizes for the spine and front and back covers of their binders, so if you are working off of a sample you bought from a different company, it is essential that you measure the rings and not the spine width.
If you are unsure of what size binder you need, give us a call at 888 338 0924. We would be happy to send you a sample binder so you can confirm your ring sizing.
US standard hole spacing is 4.25″ between centers for 11″ X 8 1/2″ paper, and 2.75″ for 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ paper.
We also have various European specification ring metals (A4, A5) available. Call for details.
If you want to make sure your hole spacing is correct before punching the holes, we would be happy to send you a sample binder to verify.
Most custom binder styles have a 25 piece minimum order.
Other products (specialty items, printing, etc) can have higher or lower minimums.
For small orders (one binder, or just a few), we have partnered with Zazzle.Learn More
