Our founder, Hyrum W. Smith, has often described his ideal binder: It would fit comfortably in his hand, have an open design for quick access to his plans, just enough pockets to stay organized without bulk, and be crafted to the highest standards. We decided to make one just for him—and anyone else with his distinguished taste. The Smith Binder is crafted from hand-selected French leather and finished in an Italian old world process for a gentle touch, beautiful grain detail, and durability. It offers a pen loop, card pockets, secretarial pockets, and organizer pockets in the back, with 0.75” silver rings for a slim, easy-to-carry profile. We think you’ll love it as much as Hyrum does.

- Townsend Pen
How thick is the spine of the Smith binder when closed? I know it has .75 rings, but when you close the binder, with no pages in it, how thick is it?

Hello. The depth of the binder is 1.75" when closed.

Greetings, can the binder accommodate an upgrade to 1.25 or 1.5 inch rings?
Submitted by Ryan on September 17, 2020
Hello. We believe upgrading this particular binder with that large of rings would keep the binder from closing properly given it's open design.

What grade of leather is used in this binder? Is it full grain leather? Is the interior all leather? Could the rings be easily removed and replaced if they become damaged?
Submitted by Chilliflowers on June 14, 2020
Hello. The leather is described as Italian old world process combined with the highest quality French calf and made with a beautiful yet gentle hand feel. A full aniline finish that allows the transparent viewing of the natural grain as well as a tight fiber structure for durability. It is a full-grain leather. The interior is leather as well. The rings can be removed with an allen wrench.

Is this a soft binder? Meaning that the front and back covers are flexible? or they are rigid?
Submitted by tonyliulaw on February 15, 2020
Hello. This is a lightly structured binder. It's not super stiff, but it's not super flexible either.

I would love to see the smaller ring size in an less expensive option. Years ago I had a classic snap binder with smaller rings but I gave it away. Any plans to offer the smaller ring size in another option?

Hello. Currently there are no plans. I will pass on your request to the proper team.
