I bought myself a Bind-it-All on a whim - a splurge! It has quickly become one of my favorite tools. I use to not only to bind projects (making my own custom sized albums) but to punch holes on embellishments and paper accents on los. It is easy to use and the documentation that comes with it is great. I only wish that it came with one of the idea booklets because i know it can do more than I can make it do! I also love that it doesn't take up much space on my shelf (not that it gets put up much) and doesn't need to be plugged in to work.
The zutter binder is so wonderful for making cards.
The sizing is easy to handle for cards and the rings come in different sizes so making any craft is simple.
I would recommend this binder for everyone.
It also stores easily as the binder is small and compact.
It is also shipped completely secured by the proper packaging.
Buy and enjoy...I did....Sandy
This is a wonderful product and I am so happy I purchased it. The company was very reasonable with price and product was shipped very quick. Instructions on you tube was very helpful which the company made available to everyone. I am enjoying my machine everyday. Scrapbooking.Com is a wonderful to deal with.
I bought my blue BIA v.1 second-hand - and it sat gathering dust for 2 years before I jumped in to try binding with it. Now I use it a lot! Do'nt know why I waited so long...
Great for making Art Journals out of junk mail flyers, postcards and chipboard.
Before getting started, be sure to have these on hand too:
wire cutters or Tim Hultz scissors
o-wire (I use 3/4" and 1" by Zutter or Cinch).
Practice in advance on 2-3 journals to get the hang of it before using your 'good' paper
I bought this tool because I wasn't happy with the types of binding used on the mini book I was making. I needed something that could withstand some use. I am so happy with this Bind-it-all! It was clear and easy to set up and use. My project came out just like I wanted and I will continue to use this on all my future binding projects
I've only made one book with this machine, but so far I'm really enjoying it! It punches through 15 sheets of paper, acrylic, and wood like butter, and feels incredibly solid and durable. However, my main complaint - and the only thing keeping this from being a 5 star review - is the instruction booklet. It's just.... wrong.
I was making a book with a 7.5" spine. There's 2 places in the book that detail how many holes I'd need to punch; one place (a chart that just said how many holes to punch and with which technique) said 13 holes. The second place (detailed instructions for how to "perfectly line up" punches for different sized spines) said 14 holes. Ok, I said. I'll go with the detailed instructions. Thankfully I used a scrap piece of chipboard to test my punches, because after 4 failed attempts, my holes were shifted nearly 1/4 an inch off center in spite of the fact that I followed the directions perfectly. I ended up just eyeballing it in the center and going from there, and the book came out well (I rushed pressing the binding wires so one end came out a bit smushed).
Overall, definitely a handy and powerful little machine, though I would DEFINITELY recommend looking for instructions elsewhere. The booklet that's included just isn't trustworthy IMO.
I finally got my zutter, and can't put it down. I love making 6x6 and 8x8 books. Back in my cagestone life, lol. I had to use hole punchers, eyelet puncher, anything I was able to get my hands on to make holes. But now I am using my zutter bind-it-all, it's wonderful for my 6 yr. old to look at his friends photos and all the wonderful things they love doing together. It's easier for him to open the book and know it won't fall apart as oppose to the past where he had to be extra careful. It's so easy to use and you can use it on just about everything you want to bind things together or just use your imagination and have a great time with it!
Ok, so I must say I was a bit worried that this product would not be able to stand up to the types of projects I had in mind for it. how ever straight out of the box it was super easy to use and was able to take on cutting right through records as well as thin wood planks as described in the listing which amazed me I must say. The pink was a little girlie for me, seeing how I'm a male in my 30's but after seeing what it could do and how well it was built I'd buy this any any color. LOL . so to conclude, all I really feel needs said is Keep Up The Great Work !
First of all..it's pink! Quick shipping, thank you! Watched several YT videos and it's pretty easy to use. I found the user manual too small for my eyes so I found it in the web and saved it to iBooks..perfect. I bought the add on tool for small projects and it works well once inserted. It makes the margin narrower than standard so smaller o rings can be used and the pages have the room to turn without binding. This machine also produces a nice decorative edge..could possibly feed ribbon through the holes.
