The Benefits of a Turned-Edge Binder
Traditional vinyl binders are functional, but Turned-Edge Binders offer function plus an extremely prestigious look and feel. Hence, turned-edge binders are the preferred option to promote an organization's professional image.
Similar in construction and durability to hardbound book covers, turned-edge binders can be printed with vibrant, full-color graphics. They can also be enhanced with special features such as metallic foil stamping or embossing.
Why is it called a "Turned-Edge" Binder?
A turned-edge binder is created by adhering an outer cover over rigid paperboard. In most cases, the cover is a sheet that has been printed and laminated, but it could also be some other high-quality material.
The outer cover is designed so that it overlaps the paperboard substrate and bends around its edges, hence the name "turned-edge." The result is a very professional and finished-looking binder.
The Benefits of a Turned-Edge Binder include…
Full-Color Graphics: Turned-edge binders can be printed with crisp and elaborate full-color artwork. In addition to the outside cover, the interior of the binder can also be printed in full color.
Enhances Creativity: There are no seams to interrupt the cover's artwork design, so it can flow continuously around the binder. Also, because the cover artwork wraps around to the inside, a full bleed is automatic.
Available in Multiple Styles: In addition to ringed binders with or without pockets, the turned-edge method can be used to create self-standing easel binders, presentation and catalog covers, slip cases, and more.
Special Sizes & Smaller Quantities: Unlike many other types of binders, turned-edge binders can be custom assembled. This allows for unique sizes as well as shorter production runs.
Professional Look and Feel: Turned-edge binders offer high visual appeal. Plus, they are extremely durable and well-constructed. As such, they provide a lasting impression.
