List of products by brand GBC®
In 1947, William N. Lane and two partners founded General Binding Corporation (GBC) to meet the binding equipment needs of Chicago’s many printers. The company quickly took off and introduced the ComboComb binding machine in 1960 to make mechanical binding accessible to the masses. A few years later, in 1966, the tabletop laminator was introduced to make laminating more accessible as well. GBC continued to innovate and grow by launching a shredder business in 1973 and expanding into visual communication in 1996. Today, GBC has a full range of quick, easy, and complete document finishing solutions to meet all business needs.
In addition, GBC has a strong presence in the wide-format graphics market providing a comprehensive line of products used to create signs, banners, point of purchase displays, window graphics, and much more. This includes dual heat, heat assist, and cold wide-format laminators, and supplies.
