I have been asked to compare the Zutter bind-it-all and the We R Memory Keepers Cinch, by a facebook friend of mine.
So, I will do the best job and I will also link some official videos of the 2.
Okay, the biggest differences that I have noticed are that The Cinch cuts round circles for the wires, and the BIA cuts rectangular circles.
However, the wires in both machines are interchangeable. So, you can pick up Zutter or WE R Memory Keepers binding products, including wires and covers, and have no problem.
The set up is a little different, because you place your project pieces in through the top on the bind it all, but with the cinch you slide them in, laying them flat.
The Cinch does allow you to choose the holes you want punched, allowing you to customize your project even more! For instance you can choose to punch 2 holes, skip a few, punch 2 more and so on….like in this book.
The Bind it all does take up much less space, but the cinch has a couple extra features that make it’s bigger size worth while. For instance, the Cinch has a side arm to allow you to hold onto your o-wire while putting together your project and a back “cincher.” The footprint of the Cinch is about 1sq foot, whereas the footprint of the BIA is about 4sq inches.
What I love about both machines–is that they are both distributed by reputable companies–and that they both come in PINK!
