On the plus side, the combs are pretty tough and you can remove and add pages yourself if you have a basic comb binding machine. You can also get some pretty large combs, meaning they are ideal for very thick documents.

Available for A4 documents only. Spine widths up to 50mm (roughly 500 sheets of 80gsm paper or up to 1,000 printed pages).

Comb binding is a largely manual process, making this a more expensive and time consuming option for larger quantities.
