Several years ago I got a Paper Parachute catalog that had the
most wonderful spiral coil binding… it looked so neat and
even…so professional… I loved the way it folded flat, even
when I turned the pages back. I wanted to bind things that

cardstock against the paper guide on the left side of the punch. It makes

electricity. The RubiCoil has a one-year warranty.
