What ever happened to comb binding machines? You know, those strange looking gadgets that sit alone in a dark corner in the copy room. It seemed only just a few years ago that comb binding was the most popular method to professionally binding office documents. Wire binding machines and coil binding machines have been around for a while too, but they have lured away former loyal comb binding enthusiasts in recent times.
There still remains, however, a strong customer base for comb binding machines. For example, we have several schoolteachers and others in the education market that love the versatility and relative low-cost of comb binding machines and materials. A plastic comb binding spine is easy to remove from a punched document. You would do this if you needed to remove or add a page or two to an already bound document.
If your child brings home a stack of artwork or similar project from school, chances are it’s been bound with a plastic comb binding machine. Several of our customers also prefer using a comb binding machine over other binding methods simply because of the ease of use, low costs for supplies, and you can actually bind up to several hundred sheets at a time.
