Our company has ordered these binders for years. We have noticed the quality gradually getting poorer over the years. I ordered 24 binders last week. Upon arrival 14 of the 24 binders were damaged. After I looked at the box, which was mashed on one end, it appeared that there were plain white labels over other labels on the box and a smaller sticker saying "returned". I think they shipped me returned merchandise. I notified Staples and the 14 were replaced. When I received the replacements, 4 of those were damaged. One was completely torn up with cracked spine and cover halfway off. The other 3 have bent corners or splits in the edge of the cover. I will not order these again given the hassle of calling to get replacements and sending the damaged ones back.
Out of the binders with recycled content, this is the best quality. We tried a different brand and the outer plastic was almost sticky, which made it very difficult to slide in the binder spine labels.
