Smartbind Plastic Comb Binding Machine Review
Are you looking to buy a plastic comb binding machine so you can easily create great-looking bound documents? If so, one machine you should consider is the new SmartBind plastic comb binding machine. This is a brand new binding machine that's affordable and easy to use, so you can create professional-looking reports, proposals, booklets, etc. within mere minutes in the comfort of your own home or office. This review will outline the advantages of using the SmartBind binding machine, as well as alert you to two of the machine's possible drawbacks.
The SmartBind is one of the most stylish binding machines you can buy. It will look great in any office setting. Plus, it's easy to tote around because it only weighs 10 pounds and it has a built-in carrying handle.
This binding machine can bind documents that are up to one inch thick using plastic binding combs. (A one-inch document can contain up to 200 pages.) Plastic comb binding is binding method that's easy to master and the combs are available in a lot of different colors so you can easily choose the right comb for your document.
The SmartBind is easy to use, so even if you're new to plastic comb binding, you'll be able to learn how to use this machine quickly. Plus, it has a built-in plastic comb opener so you don't need any additional equipment.
This machine can punch 11 sheets of 20 lb. bond paper and it does so vertically, which makes punching very easy because your pages will be accurately aligned. The SmartBind can also punch two clear plastic covers at once.
The SmartBind is made of metal, so it's durable and long-lasting. This unit isn't very expensive (it will set you back approximately $200.00), so it is terrific that this machine is so well-made considering other inexpensive binding machines often have plastic components. It's likely that you will really get your money's worth if you buy this machine.
The SmartBind can only bind documents that are up to 11 inches long. This machine lacks disengageable dies and an open throat, so binding longer documents simply isn't possible. You also can't control where your holes are punched. While this machine can beautifully bind 11-inch booklets, if you need to bind anything longer or you want a unit with an adjustable depth of punch margin control, a different machine will need to be chosen.
Some people will find the punching capacity of this machine to be too small since it can only punch 11 sheets of paper at once. If you're binding documents that are an inch thick, you may find that it takes a while to punch all of your pages. (Just so you know, pre-punched paper can help you cut down on the amount of time spent punching.)
Overall, the SmartBind plastic comb binding machine is a great choice if you need a simple binding solution. This is definitely not an advanced machine nor can it be used to bind really long documents, but if you need a basic comb binding machine, the SmartBind would be the perfect choice for your binding needs!
