Case Study: THE BUFF - Wooden effect Paper over Board Ring Binders...

Here we have a great Paper over Board Ring Binder that we manufactured for 'The Buff' who are a leader in cutting edge motion graphics for the film industry. 

They wanted a Custom Printed Ring Binder that reflected a less austere and environmental look. 

We recommended a fantastic new paper from GF Smith called 'Woodside Garden Pine'. This paper is so realistic that even up close, due to its wood texture feel, it's difficult to tell it apart from real wood.  

Real wooden ring binders are available, but when this special paper is mounted over our 2mm recyclced rigid greyboard it's makes a much lighter but still sturdy wood look ring binder and of course alot less costly than using real wood!  

On this Ring Binder we were asked to deboss their logo on the front cover, when we tested debossing the logo onto this paper it looked too subtle and not easy to see, so we added a clear gloss varnish film to the debossing which really enhanced the look of the logo and although still subtle, it gave the logo a really nice look and finished off the ring binder very well.
