What You Need to Know About GBC ProClick Binding

GBC is definitely the most famous name in the document finishing world. The company has been in business for more than 50 years and is known for manufacturing innovative and helpful binding and laminating equipment. They also make terrific supplies including their ever-popular ProClick spines. ProClick binding is a great way to make your work look great. Here's what you need to know about it:

ProClick spines are ideal for both personal and professional documents such as school assignments, financial reports, manuals, and so on. There are four colors available: black, white, frost, and navy blue. These supplies look very similar to plastic combs so you can be sure they'll make all of your documents look great.

ProClick spines come in three different sizes: 5/16", 1/2", and 5/8". The largest ones can be used to bind documents that contain up to 125 pages, so they're perfect for shorter books. (If you need to bind thicker documents, there are a number of other methods you can use including plastic comb and thermal binding.) Also, these spines are 11" long so they're best for letter-sized paper. However, you can trim them with a pair of scissors if your paper is smaller than 8.5" x 11".

One important thing to note about ProClick spines is that they require a 32-hole pattern. You can get this pattern by punching your paper with a 3:1 pitch wire binding machine or a specialized device like the GBC ProClick Pronto. You can also use pre-punched paper, if you want. If you choose to use pre-punched paper, you can bind your work when you're out of the office. You'll just need the tool that came with the spines to open and close them. Keep in mind that you can re-open the spines at any time. That makes them the best choice for documents that might need to be edited in the future.

Do you need to make sure your documents lie flat? If so, ProClick spines are the supplies to use. Not only will they make your work lie flat when it's open, they allow you to wrap the pages around a full 360 degrees. This will make your work easy to read and photocopy.

ProClick spines are available in packs of 25 and 100. If you choose to get the ProClick Pronto, you'll need to get special cassettes for the machine. Each cassette holds 100 spines.

If you're interested in this binding method but want to give it a try before you invest in a machine and supplies, you should get one of GBC's Do-It-Yourself Presentation Kits. Each kit comes with 2 ProClick spines, front and back covers, and pre-punched paper so you'll have everything you need to bind a couple of documents.

That's everything you need to know about GBC ProClick binding. It's perfect for personal and professional work, it's easy, and you don't even need a machine if you have pre-punched paper on-hand. If you're looking for a way to bind your documents, be sure to consider ProClick binding. You're going to be glad you did.
