Default Roll-a-bind?

Should I get roll a bind or another binder system? What do you all use when you make a journal, etc?

I just recently bought a roll a bind. I'd used one before and it was fairly easy. I've used it a lot already and love it!

I have a Rollabind. I don't use it as often as I'd like, but it's very quick and easy. I bought mine at California Stampin' - www.castampin.com. They usually offer a 10% discount on these, and there service has been great.

I bought mine on Sizzix.com. They have a ton of color discs. I buy in bulk because I use them at my church with the kids. They love them.

I have the hand held type. I chose this one so I would have a little more versatility, I can punch as many or as few holes as I want. I use it alot and love it. I bind my own calanders every year and various other things. I bought it at keeping memories alive website and they sell the discs in many different colors too.

I have the Carl tozzicle (sp?) system, and am very happy with it - got it from EverafterArts.com when I got my Carl cutter (which I really, reallly love!).
Tozzicle is easy to use, and looks fairly professional when finished.
I have a notepad done with rollAbind, and it is lovely - fascinating until I figured out how it went together. Yes, I am easily entertained. You should see me with a spinner card - don't get many finished

So -- which do you think is a better purchase, the Carl? What does it look like when you bind? I've never heard of this one.

Ha, ha, ha! I didn't even know there was a desk or hand held choice! Thanks for asking the question ... I'm really not in the know here at all!

The tozzicle uses plastic combs - just like we used to have in the office (I've been a full time mom for 12 + years; I'm remembering reports from over 20 years ago)
You punch holes across the edge of the paper, then you put one of these curled comb things on the binding part, and raise a lever and it unrolls the comb so you can fit the paper over the teeth of the comb. When you are done, you lower the lever and the comb curls back up. I did a horrible job of describing this, imagine the comb is more like your hand, in a fist when closed (duh!), and opened when unrolled.
Not sure it did, but hope this helps.

Does anyone have a binding machine that does the wire combs? I really like the looks of those but don't want to pay $400 for one.

FYI scrapbooking-warehouse.com has the rollabind kit on sale for 40% off. I ordered from them recently and had my order within a week.

scdecker or anyone else that knows...Can you make different size "books" with the carl tozicle? I looked at their website and saw the combs. If you want to do a 6x6 book or calendar or something do you just cut the comb to the right size (length)? Also it gave a couple of sizes for the the "teeth" part of the comb. When the sizes say 5/16 or 3/8... are they talking about the width of the teeth... or the length? Sorry... this is all new to me!
Boy do I feel like a big dummy with all these questions.

Sencie-
I'm guessing the 3/8" is longer becasue it holds more sheets.(55 vs 40 for the 5/16")

Now the question of the day is: "ROLL A BIND OR TOZICLE"? Maybe I should start a new thread!

With the Tozzicle - you can make different sizes, up to I think 11". The 3/8, 5/8 - those are the diameter of the comb thingies (don't you love when we talk technical?); the teeth are longer. I think the max # of pages it can hold is 70. The combs come in lengths that are easy to cut to what ever size you need. The only part I don't absolutely love is that you can only hole punch 8 sheets (copy paper weight) at a time, BUT the system is set up so you line them up just right every time.

Do you have any opinions on roll a bind vs tozicle? Is one better than the other? Or is it just personal preference? Thanks for all the interesting info so far.

At the risk of being obnoxious, I'll ask again :

How does the rollabind work??

Thanks!

I'd like to know, too! I've been searching through several websites, and I just can't for the life of me figure out how those disk things work!

Default rollabind

I don't have a rollabind, but have looked at it. With their punch, you end up punching T-shaped holes in the end of your booklet (they go off the end of the paper, if that makes sense). The little disks are concave, so that they have a wide edge that fits in the upper part of the T-shape and a sunken center that the paper fits in. Believe it or not, this holds the booklet together. One thing to consider is that with the rollabind, you should be able to open the booklet all the way (fold it back onto itself to lay flat, at least I think so). If the Tocizzle is what I think it is, it can be folded, but it doesn't lay completely flat (but you are able to fold it open, it just doesn't lay completely flat). Hope that made sense.

Does anyone know of a binder system that uses the coiled wire, like in notebooks that you buy in stores?

I absolutely love the Rollabind. I have the hand held version and I use it quite frequently. I've made tablets, mini scrapbooks, and for this Christmas I made 6X6 calendars for gifts. It is so easy to use. I was a little concerned at first that the pages would fall out but they don't. My toddler has an alphabet book I made her and she carries it around without it falling apart! I'm glad I bought it.

I have a rubi coil and would HIGHLY recommend it. I researched the comb style, the rollabind and chose the coil style. The coils come in a variety of colors and sizes, SUPER easy to use. There are 2 different size binding machines, I chose the bigger one and have absolutely no regrets. You can do hundreds of things with it, cardstock on cardboard (also using my xyron) the uses are endless. I bought it from Bonnie at the Coil Connection, super woman to deal with, service was fantastic, , shipping was through UPS and only took a couple of days. Let me know if you have any other questions or contact Bonnie directly.

http://www.coilconnection.com/spiralcoilbinding.htm

She has a lot of info on the different binding machines, FAQ section, and also sells the rollabind. I guess it comes down to personal preference and how much you will be using it.

Happy Stamping and binding!
