Hello again!

Putting holes in important documents may seem an odd thing to do, but sometimes it can be the best way of bringing order to a “loose crowd” of sheets!

Today's Lesson
BINDER / (PAPER) PUNCH   バインダー/穴あけパンチ

Explanation

  • A binder is a stiff cover with a clip or rings inside for holding and storing documents, magazines, etc.

    A paper punch or punch is a tool for making holes along the edge of a document so that it can be put in a ring binder.
