TEMPLATES

Our standard templates are available for download below. The .eps template files are vector images and can be viewed in graphic software applications such as Adobe Illustrator, or other programs that can open .eps files. These images are not viewable through Microsoft Office or similar programs.

The .pdf template files can be viewed in Adobe Acrobat Reader. They can also be opened in Adobe Illustrator. If you have Adobe Acrobat Reader already installed on your computer, the PDF will automatically open. If you do not, a browser window will appear asking whether you would like to save the file. You may save it, and then download Adobe Acrobat Reader at no charge from the Adobe download page.

All templates listed below are for 11” x 8 ½” + ½” tab extension sheet binders except for the 8 ½” x 5 ½” + ½” tab extension small sheet size binders*. Please ask your Binders.com (VIP/ATC) representative for all other product templates. If you plan on providing prints for your binders, please see our section on Customer Supplied Prints for important guidelines.

The .pdf files are only for printing and viewing the template’s dimensions and information. Build/position artwork to the .eps template and to submit to the Binders.com (VIP/ATC) Art Department.

Warning—if the templates are not printed at 100% on calibrated equipment, the produced drawing will not be to scale.

  • Paper: 80# minimum, 100# preferred—C1S Label
  • Gloss Lamination: .5 mil glueable/stampable polyester (1.2 mil with adhesive)
  • Matte Lamination: .5 mil glueable/stampable polypropylene (1.2 mil with adhesive)

Miscellaneous:

Press sheets cannot have aqueous primer or coating prior to lamination. This will cause the lamination to detach from the binder leaving air bubbles.

Lamination is applied to paper in a way that cancels out paper curling. Prints should be printed grain long (see diagram below). Lamination must bleed past our cut lines to allow for excess trim on all four sides.

Sheets must arrive flat with no curling. Each stack must not exceed 30” tall. Sheets cannot cling together due to lamination, paper, static, etc. Sheets stacked over 30” create blocking/clinging due to weight factor. Each sheet is fed into automated equipment. Clinging causes multiple sheets to be inserted into the equipment, spoiling those sheets.
