Ring Bound Cover Troubles
by: kraftyiam

Good day, if your cover is popping outward you need to allow more space (more distance) between the spine (where 3-ring is sitting) and the cover. Stand book upright - the cover should not touch the rings - adjust the width of the spine before gluing. No more popping out cover for you.

Binder Ring Size
by: Debbie-Anne

I would test the ring size and how far from the edge you punched the holes for the rings, and maybe even if the size of holes themselves is too small and constricts their movement. You could use scraps of cardboard, or chipboard to test this out and see if that's causing a problem. I haven't used them often myself and have never ventured bigger than 1 1/2" inches, and the quarter inch hole seems to work better for me.
