This is my first Instructable, so forgive if this is alittle ruff. As I alway do, get back up and move on and try again. So let get the show on the road.
 We do print thing and some time it lot and lugging a binder around is head ache. I myself do print a lot pdf file a lot and keep track what I have is big order. And looking for it in binders is real pain in back end. I seen this idea on this site as video, I made mine my way. And also don't copy copyright please.
