What’s The Difference Between GBC VeloBind and GBC SureBind?

GBC VeloBind System OneI had a confused customer ask me recently what the difference was between a VeloBind and a SureBind machine. I can understand the confusion. The machines look the same, have the same specifications and retail for the same amount. So what is the biggest difference between these machines?

The biggest difference between these two machines is nothing. That’s right. VeloBind and SureBind are exactly the same thing. Years ago they used to be competing brands, but GBC now owns both names. Why they continue to use both names is purely for marketing and distribution purposes, but all it seems to have done is create confusion.

Many years ago GBC also used the name QuickBind, which was synonymous for  VeloBind. Here are the VeloBind machines and their SureBind equivalents:

Confusion aside, VeloBind is one nice looking binding format. The machines are easy to use and the bind is solid. You can find our entire selection of GBC VeloBind machines here.
