Plastic Binding Combs – Everything There is to Know

Here is a transcript of this video:

Welcome to MyBinding video. There are many different ways to misuse plastic binding combs and we know that they go great with other things in your book, but that’s not what they’re for. This is everything you need to know about plastic binding combs. There’s a large variety of sizes, ranging from 3/16 of an inch to 2 inches, which means you can bind a book from 1 page to 425 pages. They won’t scratch, chip, peel or discolor. Standard sizes have a 19-hole punch pattern, but there are options for custom links. Pages flip easy and lay flat, which makes reading a breeze and allows for getting the right margins for photocopying. In order to bind, you have to use a comb binding opener and the correct type of punch. Many machines do both. When placing the binding into the machine, make sure the teeth are facing up so you can thread the pages in. For plastic binding combs and other demos, reviews and how-to’s, go to

With 123PB, you can handle about 10 sheets of 20-pound paper in a single punch. And that’s just fine except for large books. So keep in mind, if you’re going to do a lot of large books, you want a larger machine. When you’ve punched through all your pages and organized them in your order, it’s time to bind. Select the right sized plastic comb that you need and place it over the teeth of the comb opener. Keep the opening of the teeth face up and the project face down. That way the book does not fall apart in use. Open the teeth of the comb with the plastic comb opener. It’s the same handle, just push it backward instead of  forward, ___ your project over the teeth, make sure they’re all through, close it up, and you’re all set.
