Does anyone use these anymore? They were all the rage when I was demo (200. I am absolutely sure I got sucked into the tool frenzy back then. I was looking for In-Color markers from back then and found all this old stuff. Hodge podge hardware, binders, coils, chipboard up the wazoo. My son hates me right now. Use for old cardstock???? I have no patience for ebay. I can do PIF if mailing isn't too much. Get ready to be overwhelmed! I even have old odd numbered stamps from swaps!!!!
I have a Cinch and use it frequently. I am currently making Halloween mini albums as Christmas Presents and an 8"x8" baby girl album for my niece who finally has a grandaughter after 7 grandsons.
I do have problems finding supplies for it now. I used to have a lot of the chipboard covers and colored binding wires, but lost them in a flood. It is particularly hard to find the colored binding wires anymore. I don't want to buy a box 50 binding wires all the same size and color, but that is pretty much all I can find. I would love it if you put your binding machine supplies on the BST forum!
I posted not long ago that I was being enabled with a YouTube video to buy The Cinch! Lots of people said they stopped using them, but quite a few people said they still use their binding machines. I make a lot of mini books and it would really come in handy, but I think I figured out a way to do it by hand with the binding wires. I guess everything comes around again eventually!
Well bad me I have a brand new Cinch still in the box. I was a demo for a company that is no longer, I truly miss it. So here I set with a Cinch and wires. Should I sell it/shouldn't I. hmmmm I also have a Wizard that I finally used for the first time last year when I made all of the thank you cards for my sister's funeral. Do I like it? I think so, but still unsure about how to use it. So I totally understand the buying a tool frenzy purchase.
My nephew's wife's dad retired last year and had a full size coil binder he was getting rid of. It sits in my closet but I love that I can bind all my Stampin' Up! catalogs (I am a demo) for free so they lay flat at workshops. This year, I am going to offer to my customers if they want to pick up their catalog at my house, we will have a "binding party" for anyone who wants it. The little bind It All was too much work. This thing is super easy and does the entire catalog at once.
