Exclusively ours - the Universal Playbill Binder is not available in any other stores!
The Universal Playbill Binder features the same archival-quality materials, ease of use, and handsome design that have made the Ultimate Playbill Binder our number one bestseller.
But unlike the Ultimate Playbill Binder, which is designed to fit only contemporary-sized Playbills measuring 5 and 3/8 inches by 8 and 1/2 inches - the standard size for almost 30 years - the Universal Playbill Binder is designed to fit issues of Playbill magazine from ALL eras, measuring up to 6 3/4" by 9 1/4". As collectors of Playbill magazine know, from the turn of the 20th century until the early 1980's, the size of the magazine changed several times over the decades. With the exception of Playbills produced in the 1920's, these magazines were all larger than contemporary Playbills.
If your collection contains older issues of Playbill magazine that are larger than today's Playbill, the Universal Playbill Binder is the perfect solution for organizing, storing, displaying, and preserving your collection.
This custom-made three-ring binder - the top choice for Playbill collectors who wish to keep their collection in mint condition - uses archival-quality materials to protect your Playbill collection for years to come. All materials in the Universal Playbill Binder are proudly made in the USA.
The Universal Playbill Binder comes with 18 polypropylene sleeves and acid-free backing boards - the same materials used by professional archivists and serious collectors to preserve paper products, which are extremely susceptible to the damaging effects of sunlight, oxygenation, acidic corrosion, and dust.
The binder is easy to use and handle. Simply insert a Playbill into a sleeve, fold the flap over the top, and slip the flap under the strap on the back of the sleeve to hold it in place. For the most effective preservation of your collection, we recommend that you seal the flap closed around the edges with invisible tape to keep out air and dust completely.
Once you've filled the sleeves, slide them over the rings and close the clasp. You can easily change the order in which the Playbills are organized as often as you wish.
These handsome binders come in black and are covered with Arrestox Cloth. This 100% cotton book cloth with a water-based acrylic finish is strong, beautiful, and eco-friendly. The rivets holding in the rings are not visible on the outside spine of the binder, and the Playbill logo is tastefully stamped in gold at the top of the spine.
The binder measures 3 inches across the spine, and the cover is 9 and 1/2 inches wide by 10 inches tall.
Because so many of our customers have very large collections and they wish to fit as many Playbills as possible into the Universal Binders, we also offer this extra pack of six sleeves with acid-free backing boards to bring the total number of Playbills held in the Universal Binder to 24 - the absolute limit we recommend before the stress of overstuffing the binder may damage the spine of the binder and your Playbill collection over time.
