Zazzle is a website that allows anyone to create and use their own designs on several of their products. This review is on the new Avery Binders.
Recently, they began offering Avery 3 ring binders for all sorts of customers and occasions. The design I have included is one I created for a Recipe Binder that also has two large pockets on the insides of the binder. So if you have small notes or other little cards you don't want to lose, just slip them inside the binder pockets. These binders can be created by anyone and you can make them for scrapbooks, recipes, photo albums, weddings, school and business. You are able to upload your own designs or images and make these binders your own.
You can personalize the front, back and spine - it's totally up to you. The color choices are black or white. The font for your own personalization can also be chosen from the many available on Zazzle, as well as the color choice you want.
The binders come in 3 ring sizes, 1" 1.5" and 2"
2 styles of rings are also available - E-Z turn ring or 1 touch EZD Ring (these ring names are trademarked and the property of Avery)
Delivery is faster than the two weeks they normally ask for, but may be closer to that delivery time with the holidays coming up, but everyone so far is reporting that their binders are coming super fast. They are also being delivered directly from Avery and you can also customize your own binders by going directly to Avery's website and it will lead you back to Zazzle. Creating your own binder is easy for a beginner, as long as you follow the directions and layouts posted.
These Avery binders are top quality and are great for keeping your own personal recipes, photos or whatever you can think of. And I am a scrapbooker and most of the time, I can't find an album I would like to use for my pages. These Avery binders are perfect beause now I can put my own designs on the outside and still pay less than buying a scrapbook binder in the store.
To see this and many other binders, go to their website at www.zazzle.com
Update On May 22, 2010: These binders that you can create yourself on zazzle.com are great for graduation photos, wedding albums, scrapbooks and of course recipe books - or whatever you can think of. And since it's designed by you and made by Avery, you are getting the best quality. I'd love to know what anyone has created for their album.
