Crease
A recess in the cover allows it to be folded. The standard width of the crease is 8 mm. Sometimes narrower ones with a width of 4 mm are used. Wide creasing makes it easier to break the cover - the binder closes nicely - the covers do not stick out from the documents. Binder covers are traditionally creased twice. In the case of files and binders with a semicircular back, 5-7 creases are used.
 
a17.jpgBlankholder
A device for pressing sheets in the binder lock. Lever binders use wide metal clamps with a release button. Wire clamps or plastic clamps are inserted into the rings.
 
Self-adhesive label      
It is made on self-adhesive paper. We offer company labels in white and red tones. It is possible to stick labels with the logo of the customer on the binders. Standard dimensions are 150 * 48 mm and 150 * 30 mm.
 
Removable label       
The removable label is made on a cardboard. It is used to be placed in a special window that is welded or glued to the ridge of the binder cover.
 
Horizontal format        
A binder to which you can insert sheets along. For example, the A-4 horizontal is 23 cm high and the cover sash length is about 35 cm.
 
Ridge width 
The width of the ridge is a consequence of the lock used, while this is due to the amount of materials that the binder is to hold. More information on this subject can be found in the chapter entitled "Type of closure". At this point, the question of measuring the ridge width will be explained.
Three ways to determine the width of the ridge:
1. Total width of a binder (Sp) - how much space a binder takes up on a shelf.
2. The width is determined by the creases (Sb) - from the crease to the crease on the outside.
3. Design width (Sg) - describing how much space the designer has for, for example, a logo on the ridge.
Sp > Sb > Sg​​​​​​​
 
Calendering
The process of giving a cover a specific texture - squeezing a regular pattern. It can be the effect of linen, orange peel, leather. In our case, we emboss a pattern of dense mesh.​​​​​​​
 
Label pocket       
Transparent plastic sleeve that is welded or glued on the back of the binder. It is used to affix removable labels describing the contents of the binder.​​​​​​​
 
a15.jpgRing mechanism    
Closure used mainly in advertising binders and office binders with a spine up to 5 cm.​​​​​​​
 
a16.jpgLeverage mechanism    
The most common closure used in office binders. The most popular dimensions are: 72 and 50 mm.​​​​​​​
 
Lamination
The process of paper refinement by applying a transparent glossy or matte foil. There are two methods of lamination: cold and hot. For further bookbinding processing, the "hot" method gives better results. However, remember that the sheet of paper cannot curl after curling.
An additional decorative effect is achieved by the so-called spot varnishing of veneers laminated with matt foil.​​​​​​​
 
a20.jpgEdge eyelet
It is mounted on the back of the binder and makes it easy to pull it out of the shelf.​​​​​​​
 
a19.jpgRado eyelet  
Also called a side closure. Oval, metal fittings mounted to the first page of the cover. Thanks to them, it is possible to close the binder - the top of the lever passes through the opening and hooks on the metal protrusions - thanks to which the binder loaded with documents stands straight on the shelf.
A common mistake is to mount eyelets in such a way that the binder is twisted after the cover is closed, or by using a spine that is too wide in relation to the lever used - the cover does not close on the eyelets.​​​​​​​
 
Outer veneer
The material used to bind the outside of the cover. They have different colors and different types of surfaces - smooth or embossed in various patterns.
We produce binders in three basic types of veneers:
1. Veneers based on paper printed with the offset method and then laminated with glossy or matt foil. "Kolor" binders and advertising binders.
2. PVC veneers with paper lining. Office binders with welded pockets and advertising binders with screen printing.
3. Paper veneers - mass-colored paper, specially reinforced - marble binders.​​​​​​​
 
Cover
The main part of a binder which determines its technical and aesthetic values. There are bookbinding covers and unframed covers: solid cardboard, glued cardboard or plastic.​​​​​​​
 
Fittings
The common name for any metal binder parts; edge eyelets, rado eyelets, rails, ring and lever closures.​​​​​​​
 
Bulk packaging
Our products are packed in two types of bulk packaging:
1. Heat-shrinkable foil,
2. Corrugated cardboard boxes.
As a rule, we have assumed that office supplies: lever binders and other ones made of non-glued cardboard, as well as other goods such as: binders, folders and Velcro-fastened folders - are wrapped in heat-shrinkable foil. On the other hand, we pack advertising binders and other advertising products in corrugated cardboard boxes.
Typical capacities:
Shrink foil:
- lever binders - 5 pcs / pack.
- ring binders up to 4 cm wide - 10 pcs / pack
- folders and tied folders - 50 items / pack.
- hardcover folders with Velcro and elastic band - 5 items / pack.
Corrugated cardboard boxes:
- 2.5 cm ring binders - 50 items / box
- ring binders 3 - 3.5 cm - 40 items / box​​​​​​​
 
Ring locks - round are used where there is a need to frequently leaf through the pages or when the lock is mounted on the spine.
The smallest diameter of the lock (G) is 13 mm - but it is not functional - it is better to use a lock with a diameter of 16 mm.
Ring locks - type "Q" are installed relatively rarely. The smallest diameter of the lock (G) is 13 mm - but it is not functional - it is better to use a lock with a diameter of 16 mm. Ring locks - type "D" belong to the most frequently installed in advertising binders. The straight edge on one side makes the pages fit evenly in the binder - the semicircular edge on the back allows for smooth page turning.​​​​​​​
 
Strengthening rails
Metal fittings put on the lower edges of the cover. Their task is to strengthen the edge of the binder and protect it from premature wear. It is sometimes mistakenly believed that the rails are intended to increase the stiffness of a file and prevent the cover from bending. If the cover is defective, the rail may only slightly reduce the bending of its lower part. The disadvantage of the rail is that, even when it is best placed, it damages the furniture base.​​​​​​​
 
Insert
It is the material with which the inside of the cover is taped. In office binders, it is usually colored or white paper. Sometimes laminated paper is used, or the same material as the veneer.
Advertising binders use white paper laminated with glossy or matt foil, or printed paper - also laminated.
