Plastic comb binding is one of the most popular document finishing methods available and it’s perfect for reports, proposals, and other professional documents. Combs are easy to use and you can make the binding process even easier by following these three tips:
- Make sure you measure the thickness of your document and choose a comb that can comfortably accommodate all of the pages. You want the pages to turn freely so that your work is easy to read.
- If you are binding a half-letter sized book and all you have are 11-inch combs, you can trim them with a pair of scissors. Don’t forget the disengage the appropriate punching dies on your machine. This will help you get the right hole pattern.
- When you open up your comb for binding, make sure you don’t open it up too much. If the comb is too open, it can make binding your work more difficult than it needs to be. (Plus, the comb could fly off the comb opener, which is very annoying.)
Plastic binding combs are easy to use and they can make any document look more professional. Hopefully these tips will make the process even easier so you can crank out great-looking work in a flash. Happy binding!
