I watched a tutorial on how to punch the holes and use the binding wire but the journal I am making is 200 pages and to hand punch is going to take forever...have any of you ever taken your materials to an office supply store and have them punch it for you? Or any other ideas? Thank you for your help!
Maybe i should explain what I am making. I am making a journal out of chipboard, 8 1/2 x 11 paper. The chipboard cover will be made into a gatefold and the spiral bound journal will be inside. The last page of the journal is thin chipboard that will be attached to the base. So will it work for that? Please tell me it will...
It is printed front and back and with the thin chipboard back it measures 1in total. I counted the pages and its a total of 164. I really need this to work.
Its not going to work with owires. I would say take it to your local binding/printing shop.
I second this. They'll punch and bind it for you. AND it's pretty darn affordable. Don't try to punch it and take it to a print shop for binding as your holes might not match up with their bindings. Trust me, I've punched and then taken it in and it wasn't pretty.
With my hands, I watched a tutorial by TracysTreasures TracysTreasures on youtube...and I took it to officemax to have the holes punch since there were so many pages and it worked perfect. They gave me the clear back as included in punching the holes. I gave it to her this morning and she loved it...we had the idea to make one to promote me selling things and she would use it to preach from so people would see it...well today she was in awe and said it was to pretty to write in...lol I am so glad it worked cause it just wouldn't have been as good as the plastic look.
