How to Choose the best Binding Machine

A number of binding machines are available from AfterPrint in a number of different styles, with each one having a different finish.

If you have never used binders before you may not know what to look for when choosing one, which is why we have put together this handy guide.

It is crucial to know how often you will use the machine to make sure you are not putting a small-scale machine into a heavy-duty setup.

Understanding different types of Binding Machine

Here is a breakdown of the different type of binders to consider –

Comb Binding – Gives you a traditional finish which is ideal for reports and presentations and handles documents up to 500 pages. Pages can be added or removed easily with the machine lying flat when open.

Thermal Binding – Strong, light and compact this machine allows for permanent and secure bind. It lies flat when open with bound pages rotated 360 degrees.

Wire Binding – Another machine that offers permanent and secure binding featuring a squared back for easy on-shelf storage. Quick and easy to use it also lies flat for mailing uses.

How Often will the Binder be used?

For homes and small offices looking for a binder that can bind documents no larger than 150 pages a few times a month. In small offices that tend to bind documents of around 300 pages a few times every week, you will need a more durable model.

Alternatively, for office users that bind documents every day, consider one of our more robust models.
