Schnellhefter in English, por favor?

Postby jacob » Thu Dec 22, 2016 12:51 pm

Two questions:

https://www.brevo-service.de/on-top-Sch ... arton-grau

1) What's the equivalent English term for this kind of binder?
2) Where can I find one that takes 3-hole letter format paper? (the "mechanism" would obviously be a bit different).

I've looked for alternatives (clamps, binders, folders), ... but this is the thinnest type I know (back from 5th grade).

When I was a kid we used these.

Mrs Ego is an organizational freak. She loves file folders with fasteners like these which are similar to what you are looking for.

I think you're referring to prong paper fasteners, but I can't see any with a 3-hole configuration. You could use an individual post-type fastener in each hole.

(Edit: I see that Ego already posted pretty much the same thing.)

In elementary school my teachers called them "duotang folders".
