Speedy Spine Lifestyle

U.S. Patent Number 8,647,008, entitled “Spine Label Pocket for a Binder Cover”, claims the configuration of a label pocket on the spine of a ring binder using the transparent overlay material creating extra space for easy insertion and removal of labels without the need for tools or special label material. Several embodiments of the label pocket are covered in the patent with each one offering distinct visual and functional advantages.

The problem of tight and almost impossible to insert spine graphics has plagued view binders since its inception more than 40 years ago. This dilemma has grown quickly now that view binders are the most widely used and best selling ring binders on the market. The Speedy Spine™ Heavy Duty Time Saving View Binder incorporates the patented construction and eliminates the money and time wasting issue by allowing the easy drop-in of spine inserts for custom graphics five times faster than traditional view binders.

Features and Benefits of the patented Speedy Spine™ View Binder

  • Save money and be more efficient by loading spine inserts in seconds
  • 5 times faster than traditional view binders on the market
  • No more damaging spine labels by wiggling, pushing, or forcing them down the spine

  • Lifetime product guarantee – A Binders for Life™ product
