I am soliciting opinions on different binding methods. We currently use
spiral binding for all our manuals. We are thinking of introducing 3 ring
binding along with tab dividers for our larger manuals. We have produced a
mock up that we think looks quite professional; tabs, nice spine so it can
be read while sat on a shelf; does not collapse on itself when stood on end;
longer lasting; easier updates.

When we presented it to one of our product managers she was not impressed
and told us that it was a step backwards and made us look unprofessional.

I would like to hear other opinions on binding methods.
