Fellowes Starlet Comb Binding Machine Review

Fellowes Starlet Comb Binding MachineDo you occasionally need to bind a small report, but don’t know which machine you should use? Have you considered the Fellowes Starlet comb binding machine? This small little machine is the cheapest, smallest and most compact comb binder Fellowes has to offer. So is it any good? Here is my review.

To begin with, the Fellowes Starlet is a compact little machine designed for home use that can easily sit on the end of a desk. It is small. It is designed to bind booklets of up to 90 pages thick with a ½-inch diameter comb. Fellowes had light-volume in mind when they designed this machine. I wouldn’t recommend using it for binding any more than 5-6 books a day.

Why would you use a machine like this? It can be used to create the occasional report, a customized photo album or a cookbook. It is very easy to use and very economical.

When the back support is folded down and the lever is folded into a compact position, the entire machine is no more than a few inches tall. It is compact enough that it can easily be placed in a cupboard or drawer for convenient storage.

The punch on this machine is rated at punching 7 sheets of paper at a time. While this is the case, I wouldn’t recommend punching that many sheets. I would probably scale that back to 5-6 sheets.

Most manufacturers, including Fellowes, post the absolute maximum number of sheets that can be punched at a time. That number, however, is not recommended for continual use.

One thing I really like about the Fellowes Starlet is the vertical load paper punch. Most comb binding machines have a horizontal punch. The vertical punch makes it easier to keep paper lined up and holes properly aligned.
