    Slimmer alternative to a 3-ring binder?

    I have a 32-page document that I need to print out (so, 15 sheets) and keep in some sort of portable, easily accessible, and protective cover.

    I would like something that's as easy to open up and flip through as a 3-ring binder, and lies flat like one too, but slimmer. I think the smallest binders I've seen are 1/2", which is still more capacity than I need.

    Any suggestions?

    I'd prefer to not have to buy any special hole punchers, since I'll only use it once.

    You could also take it to a copy shop to have it spiral bound with plastic covers...it will lay really nice and flat that way, and it's cheap to do.

    I like to use clamp binders, but the pages don't lie flat when you open them. For that I have to unclamp and flip through everything loose. Since it's quick and easy to clamp and unclamp, that's not a big deal.

    My vote would be to have it spiral bound, like FoxValleyDame recommended, unless you don't have time. Then go with the clamp binder.

    Large Tom Bihn Organizer Pouch

    then, a strong plastic pocket folder to house the sheets.

    Corner Lock Four-Pocket Folder


    That pair is much, much thinner than a binder and enable the transport of sheets without bending, wrinkling, etc...
