I have a tool fetish...crafting and office supply. I have an ARC punch which I like, but sometimes I want a connected spine binder rather than disk binding. I saw a pic in one of the Thirty-One Facebook Groups that I belong to where a lady had laminated and had paid Staples to spiral bind the new Summer Catalog. I thought that was a good idea, but I also wanted to see if there was an affordable spiral binding option I could use at home. And there was at Office Max, which is much closer and more prevalent than in my area than Staples. So, I got a new tool...the Pro Click P50 binding system.
After I cut apart my catalog, I laminated each page. I use an expensive Scotch Laminator that I bought at Wal-Mart a couple of years ago. It works great, and I highly recommend it. You can also purchase it at Target, and I have read that you can get a large pack of laminating sheets at Sam's. I must remember to look next time I'm in there. Anyway, I then slid each page in the P50, pushed the lever up and all the binding holes were punched. It was that easy!
Next, I loaded the pages on the 1/2 inch spine, also purchased at Office Depot.
The spine just snaps closed.
I then laminated and spiral bound a school handbook.
I enjoyed how neat and organized it felt to laminate and bind documents so much that I think I will do it to some of my craft tool manuals and documents.
Thanks for stopping by!
