Binders are Back

Post  Rip on Tue Mar 30, 2010 12:20 am

GoGoods is selling the KEBA ergo binders, also via Amazon. They're a bit pricey, but it's the only place I've been able to even find them lately. They seem to have sold out of quite a few of the colors right now, so here's hoping they continuing selling them... and possibly dropping the price.

Rip thanks for the info. I was actually looking for a couple binders recently and found a site to order but was unsure if they were the same thickness or not. I am going to use the replica binders (with corners cut and stickers of course) to display my Propworx COAs.

They're 2 1/4" KEBA ergo, 3-rings. The ones I have from the show were labeled "AXCESS Best Built Binders", which is how they were previously sold in the States (and I assume Canada). The AXCESS distributer shut down, but the KEBA ones that GoGoods sells are the same... they just don't have the "AXCESS" stamp on the inside. There appears to be a variation inside the notches on the spine which consists of 4 small vent holes. But two of my actual BSG binders have those as well.

For modifications, BSG not only cut the corners, but also trimmed back the covers by just under 2 3/4". That poses a bit of a problem if you want to create an exact replica, but also want it to hold COAs: the COAs in sheet protectors will extend a good 1 1/2" beyond the binder covers.

One other thing that BSG seemed to do with every binder except for the frost ones is to paint the spine. Most silver ones were originally yellow, but I have one that was red. I also have a red one that is painted red and a green one that is painted black. I've seen them repaint yellow as yellow, blue as blue, etc. Whatever color you decide to paint them, it's pretty easy to tape them off & spray paint them.

I've managed to get a couple binders before they were out. And I've seen they selling the last ones for $7 each! But when I found it they're already gone.

Thanks for the tips about modding them.
