Sales & Company FAQs

  • What is a casemade binder?
  • Sometimes called a turned-edge or casebound binder, casemade binders are constructed from a non-vinyl cover material that is then wrapped around and glued to a board.
  • How is a vinyl binder made?
  • Vinyl binders are made using vinyl material surrounding a board placed in-between the cover and liner materials. The vinyl is then heat-sealed with special dies in a dielectric machine, which uses heat and radio frequency waves to form a seal. This process requires no gluing.
  • What is the main difference between casemade and vinyl binders?
  • Casemade binders are generally made with a paper, cloth, leather, or canvas outer material that is glued to an unfinished board. The outer material wraps around the board edges, which is then covered by a liner glued to inside of the board. Vinyl binders have boards that are completely surrounded by vinyl, which is heat-sealed by a process that does not require glue.
