Hinge strips are the perfect tool to add flexibility to the pages of your portfolio. Photo paper and other heavier pages do not bend or turn easily and have a tendency to flip back. These hinges are made with a very thin, flexible fabric that allows the page to turn easily and lie flat. On the left of each hinge is a strip of 100 lb paper, which adds stability and strength to the fabric where the holes are punched. The following photographs provide step by step assistance to show you how to apply these custom made hinge strips.
