What is comb binding?
Comb binding is a semi-permanent form of book binding that is good when you are assembling a book that may have pages which change frequently. The rigid plastic material forms a semi-cylinder which is completed by a row of ring-shaped tines, or teeth. When held open by a comb binding machine, the binding resembles a hair comb.

With the binding held open, we then hand-fit the punched, rectangular holes of your book pages onto the teeth, and then the binding is closed shut. The tension of the plastic rings keeps pages neatly together, but allows the user to insert or remove pages as content is updated. This is easily done with a mechanical comb binding machine, but can also be done by hand.
Comb Binding Uses
Comb bound books are great for things like directories, training material and other documentation that will be frequently updated. For this reason, comb books pair great with printed tab dividers, which make navigating your book sections easy. Tab dividers can also be ordered separately if you're adding sections in the future.
