Paper Sizes

Hi,
I just discovered this site and love it. I have a Circa Junior but want a more colorful cover (that is as sturdy as my Circa) and colorful discs - do Levenger pages fit Myndology covers and discs? Other suggestions?
Thanks

Have you thought of cutting a piece of scrapbook paper to incorporate under your levenger clear plastic cover?

Rollabind offers rings in a wide range of colors from basics to pastels to metallics.

Here is another thread on the discussion of compatibility: LINK

Covers

Hi.

Here's an illustration of the 'scrapbook paper under the plastic cover' concept.

My Flickr set

I use fancy papers for all my notebooks. Most of them are fairly fragile, but the plastic covers (I made them myself but they're comparable in strength to the Lev covers) protect them and keep them pretty nice.

Shris,
GREAT covers. I'd like to copy your idea to bring more color to my notebooks. What kind of plastic do you use and where do you buy it? I've seen nice fancy paper but haven't been able to find sturdy plastic.
Thanks

Rigid Vinyl

Hi.

I get 'rigid vinyl' in clear gloss/gloss and matte/matte finish. The transparent covers are .015" thick and the frosty back covers are .020" thick. The thicker stuff is very difficult to punch but if you jump up and down on your punch you can do it.

I got mine from a local plastic manufacturer. If you're in a major metro area you probably have one too--they might even give you a few 8.5x11 samples if you walk in and ask.

If you're not near a major metro, then search the net for transparent rigid vinyl and you'll find it in fairly big sheets. The trick is finding a company that'll let you order small quantities. You'll have to cut it yourself. Tin snips or heavy duty scissors or a box cutter will do fine for a rough cut. A guillotine will work fine for your final cut. A rotary will require a few passes to get a straight cut all the way through it. An x-acto can do it too, but will require multiple passes.

For slightly thinner stuff, you can look for transparent vinyl cover stock in the coil-binding section of your office megamart. It'll be more like .010 or thinner.

Hi Shris,

Thanks for the advice. Next time I'm in a metro area I'll search the phone book. I have looked at Staples and they have nothing heavy enough.

Hmmm.

What if a bunch of us got together and made a larger-size order? Would anyone be willing to cut it up and ship it out (paid for by us, of course)? I'd do it but I can't cut a straight line to save my life. :)

You may want to contact your local print shop and see if they have any in stock. chances are they can order it and cut it at a low cost... :)
