There’s nothing better than fresh, new and beautiful looking organizational tools! When it comes to binders, they are no exception– adding design, color, pattern and labels make actually using binders more fun!
Of course, when organizing, things can’t be too bland or boring. It’s best to spice it up with cuteness and color! That’s why I am loving these free editable Binder Covers & Spines.
Free Editable Binder Covers & Spines
- binder with clear view cover (can be any size: 1″, 1.5″ and 2″, etc.)
- card stock (can use regular printer paper, but the print is bolder and much brighter on the card stock)
- download (get it at the bottom of the post)
- dividers (optional–if you need to organize the inside of your binder)
Creating the binder covers and spines is super easy! Each of the spine covers is available in three size options: 1″, 1.5″ and 2″.
Follow the super short video below where I show you how to add text to the covers and spines using the free program Canva.com:
When you print your labeled binder covers, I would suggest printing on card stock. This will allow the cover to easily slip into the cover pocket without bending and, as mentioned in the supply list, the color is much brighter when printed on card stock versus regular paper.
I used to hold my breath every time I printed something in full color. Sometimes i would even take things like this to the a printing center, like Staples. But these days, I don’t every worry about ink costs any more!
I switched to the Instant Ink Program with HP. I got rid of my ink-hog printer, purchased a new printer and enrolled in the Instant Ink Program. Now, every page I print is only $.03! When printing ink-heavy designs (like the binder covers & spines), I don’t have to worry about how much ink I use! Want to give it a try? Enroll now in the program. The first month is FREE! If you hate it you can always cancel, but I can guarantee you’ll love it as much as I do!
