Custom Ring Binder Spine Design: Posture and Personality

Custom Ring Binder

Posture is Everything. Even in Custom Ring Binder Design


Even in the world of custom ring binders. Binders have spines just like a person. And, just like a person, they come in a variety of shapes, from rigid to relaxed. The evolution of the ring binder spine can be tracked just like the history of posture. Changing with the day-to-day needs of the modern person. Arguably, the spine is what gives the ring binder its personality. So which personality fits your own?


Standard Flat Back: The Old School Classic

This custom ring binder style is the hard worker of the bunch. The sit-up-straight type. Flat back, nose to the grindstone. Plenty of room on the spine for words and names, and maximum visibility for easy reading. It will also lay flat while open, freeing up your hands for notes.


Euro-Flat Back: The Sensitive Type

To the untrained eye, the Euro-Flat Back custom ring binder is almost identical to its predecessor, save for the slightest edge. Literally. The Euro-Flat has a scored hinge, making for a softer, more organic edge. This feature gives this ring binder a little bit more flexibility and a distinguished look when displaying your boardroom notes or other important files.


Euro-Round Back: The Yoga Guru

Slouching isn’t lazy anymore. Many studies point to having straight back posture as a negative. Plus, isn’t there something cool and relaxed about a slouch? The same could be said for the spine of this custom ring binder. While it may not offer the readability of the other designs, the rounded edge makes for a distinct look that really stands out. This might be the right choice for a cookbook or art portfolio; something that a person would look at standing up. While the other ring binders’ designs desire to lay open flat, the spine on this one offers the most flexibility of all.
