You would have seen the small ads on the Games Workshop webstore for the binders to keep your White Dwarf magazines in.
The magazines do have a habit of flopping around and falling over when in stacks, so it does seem like a logical idea - but what are they really like?
Do they work? Do they damage your magazines?
This kind of binder has a bit of a history to it and reminds me of the older versions for aircraft and tank magazines from the 80s and 90s.
Those folders tended to be very good, but once the magazine was in - it was in.
The older issues of White Dwarf even had two small grey dots along the binder inside so you could line up a hole punch and do it yourself.
I have hundreds of old issues of White Dwarf needing a better storage solution than multiple shelves. Well thankfully there is a new kind of binder out there that won't destroy your issues and is reasonably painless to use!
The binder itself is folded over itself and comes with some very rudimentary instructions.
In the middle you can see the strings that will hold your precious issues of White Dwarf in place.
For youngsters , I'd suggest getting a patient adult to help. The strings tend to move a bit, so sometimes you'll find one hiding under the already bound issues and pulling firmly on the string is a challenge at first..
The magazines move pretty well once inside and turning the pages is easy - in fact by using this central string method to bind, you don't miss any of the action and you can open each issue fully!.
- VERDICT -
I would probably have added a sticker option so people could see by the binder what issues were in which binder, but apart from that - this is pretty solid if done carefully.
