Ring Binders are a widely used document file that has a variety of applications. The width of regular ringer binders makes them most suited to daily use, presentations and manuals. A standard ring binder holds about 100 sheets of paper but the capacity will depend on the ring shape and spine width. The standard ring binder shape is the ‘O’ ring which is designed for easy page turning. Larger ring binders are available and some of these feature a ‘D’ ring shape which offers increased storage capacity. The ‘D’ ring shape is more commonly found in Lever Arch files which is a larger file option more suitable to archiving and long term document storage.

Ring binders are available in 4 different sizes, A4, Foolscap, A5 and A3. The standard document type to store in a ring binder is a hole punched sheet of paper. For documents that will need to be referenced regularly and may not be suitable to hole punch; plastic pockets offer the ideal storage solution. Ring Binders contain 2 or 4 rings which are suitable for different types of document filing.
When selecting what type of ring binder to purchase the 2 other features to consider are the material the ring binder is made from and the identification method required. The materials to choose from are …..
Paper covered board – The cheapest ring binder cover is paper covered board which is available in a large selection of colours. More durable laminated paper covers are more suitable for regular use.
PVC cover on board – The PVC covered board is much more hard wearing than paper and has a wipe clean finish.
Polypropylene full cover – The most durable cover is made completely of polypropylene. This material can either be used for solid cover files or thin flexible covers that weigh less and last longer. This type of ring binder cover is ideal for manuals and documents that are to be transported for meetings or presentations.
The identification options available are ….

Clear full pocket on front – This enables you to add a personalised front page to the ring binder.
