Presentation Binders

Best For: Proposals, presentations, and reports.

Presentation binders typically have a clear vinyl overlay on the front, back, or spine. This allows you to add a title page to the front, along with additional information on the side or back. Some common names for presentation binders include Clearview, ClearvueTM, or Clear Overlay.

Reference Binders

Best For: Creating manuals, files, or workbooks

Also known as standard ring binders, these binders are built to be durable as they are for everyday use. Reference binders are probably what your kids use to hold homework assignments and lined paper for notes at school. While these binders typically don’t contain a clear view overlay on the front, they do contain internal pockets to store important papers.

Storage Binders

Best For: Annual records, archived information

Storage binders are used for files you won’t need to access regularly. These binders can typically hang and have a stiff cover.
