Binders – Offering a Professional Finish to Paperwork

It’s often the little things that add to the success of a paper presentation and getting the right message across to the right people.

Whether it be a presentation for work, a CV for your dream job, your first attempt at a novel or a child’s school project, one look at how the work is presented, can tell someone a wealth of information about the work’s creator.

As insignificant as it may seem, display binders offer not only a professional finish to your work but can actually maximise your odds of making a better connection with your target audience.

Also, since people at generally not very good at remembering someone they’ve only spent a short period of time with, leaving a professional piece of you behind to continue to speak for you, will further assist in making sure that you continue to stand out from the rest.

Here are a few tips on how to keep yourself at the top of the pile.

Keep it Simple with a Binding Machine

As important as it is to bind your work, you don’t want your binder to overshadow your message. Display binders should thus be more on the simple side to capture the audience’s attention, while not being so distracting that it takes away from the content.

Spiral or coil binders are a perfect solution to providing an understated but professional finish. The binding, like for a notebook or booklet, is one where the pages are fastened together by a spiral of wire or plastic that coils through a series of holes punched along one side of each page.

Spiral binding also allows for more movement and flexibility of the pages you bind together, thus making the final product easier to read and use.

The spiral binding coils are available in a variety of colours which you could match to a coloured cover page and are effective for holding together up to 300 pages, depending on the binding machine used.

Mailmech’s DSB (electronic or manual), or Prima Opera binding machines, ready to ship to businesses and individuals, are compact and convenient devices that make it ever so easy to stack, punch and spiral bind documents in a flash.

Use Tab Dividers

If you have a whole host of information you want to present, adding customised tab dividers to your binders will help keep everything much clearer and more organised.

Only include Important Information

You should aim at not overloading your audience with information in getting your main message across. If your document requires that the information contained therein be fairly comprehensive, it is a good idea to include highlights of the overall contents with snippets of additional information only meant to build upon your main points.

This will get your message across quickly, but also allows your audience the opportunity to read further if they find what you have to say is of interest to them.
