In a world where digital information is king, why do we still need loose leaf binders? For many, the first experience with a three ring binder is through school. Homework crammed chaotically into our take home binders. That's what many think of when they think of loose-leaf binders.
Believe it or not, the looseleaf binder is a relatively new invention. And with this simple concept, the uses for binders has only grown over time. As a custom binder manufacturer, Rose Packaging works with many customers to bring their binder vision to life. And believe us, the days of the chaotic three ring binders are long gone. Here are some of the uses we see most often.
Let Us Count the Uses for Loose Leaf Binders
- The most common use is for organizing financial information. Whether personal or otherwise, sensitive financial documents really only hold value if they are original. This means holding on to printed copies of contracts, tax statements, and so on. Though it's common to handle financial matters online, it's important to have a back-up.
- Loose leaf binders are also helpful tools for portfolios and professional work samples. When interviewing for a new job or promotion, you wouldn't depend on using the interviewer’s computer to show your past work, right? Using a three ring binder of your portfolio is another common use of ring binders.
- The third most common use of 3-ring binders is what we at Rose Packaging can create: promotional packets and presentation materials. Companies use binders to organize presentation materials that promote their business and the services they provide. Professionals in these roles are often called upon to give presentations. Binders are great leave-behinds because they contain all pertinent information and if done right, they are customized with your brand logo and mission statement.
- The last most common uses for loose leaf binders are on a personal scale. Think collections of recipes, photos, and scrapbooking purposes.
