Resources for ordering Custom Binders

How much do custom binders cost?

The cost of custom ring binders is determined based on materials, construction, quantity and customization. What we want you to understand is that we can create a custom ring binder that meets your budgetary needs. Here are a few examples where we can save our clients money and still produce a premium binder with a high perceived value.

Leather-like binders are much more cost effective then using actual leather, but are much more cost effective. The perceived value is much higher, and your binder users will never know the difference.

Aluminum binders are not always practical. They are incredibly durable, and probably necessary in the construction industry. But we have created turned-edge binders with a print overlay that gives the binders a metal feel and finish, but a much more lightweight construction.

The possibilities are limitless for your next custom binder project! At Forbes Custom Products, we have creative ways to help you build a hands-on brand experience with your custom binders.  Contact us today for a hassle free quote!
