1 Vinyl Binder includes Clear View, Easel Binders and Entrapment Binders.
2 You can screen print in 1 to 4 colors, but most cost effective at 3 colors and below. Above 3 colors, consider a product that allows for digital print.
3   A Die is required for Foil Stamping. Consider a Gold or Silver print alternative.
4   Least expensive option, especially at low quantities. Minimum Quantity 25 for Kraft Binders, and 250 for Paper Binder Folders.
5   Printing methodology, adding pockets and other features may impact recyclability. We limit features on the Kraft Binder to retain recyclability.
6  “Unlimited” is any size up to equipment max. “Limited” requires equipment tools which determine available sizes. Most common sizes are available.
7   Digital Print on White Vinyl. Interior will be white. Outside can be flood printed to match any PMS color and include any print or picture.
8   While linen looks similar in appearance to paper, it feels softer and warmer to the touch. It is our highest quality book cover material and makes a powerful brand statement.
9   Our most customizable, high-end binder! A design specialist will assist you with fully customizable color, cover material and shape.
10   A litho wrap binder can be designed with a plush, soft touch matte finish to emulate an executive padding feel. One of our design specialists can provide design options.
11   Because of printing cost, more cost effective at higher quantities.
