2. Punching Documents

Arrange the documents you want to staple and select the appropriate position along the edge to punch. Most plastic folders can punch multiple pages at once. Align the edges of the documents and place them in the punched area according to the binder's instructions.

3. Inserting the plastic comb

Select the appropriate size plastic comb and unfold it. Insert the comb into the document slots. Line up the hole in the comb and feed it through any holes you make on the edges of the documents. Make sure the comb goes through all the holes evenly.
