Unibind covers come pre-folded with the thermal adhesive pre-applied for easy binding; there is no punching or clean up is required.

Unibind will prove to be the absolute easiest binding method you have ever used! In addition, covers and other supplies are available in a variety of styles and colors to meet your exact needs.
