Plastic Comb Binder

At home book binding

A cost-effective method for binding reports, manuals, galleys, and booklets in a somewhat professional looking style. The hand-operated device cuts and then binds pages into a plastic comb binding. It has saved our household countless disruptive last-minute trips to Kinkos, and paid for itself after the tenth binding. It’s pathetically easy to peel combs off from booklets headed for the recycling bin. I’ve stock piled a wide assortment of combs that way. Get a variety of sizes (the combs are cheap); the largest size can handle several hundred pages.
