Gbc Proclick Pronto P3000 Automated Binding System and Punch Review


  • The GBC Proclick Pronto P3000 is an all in one automated binding system that is designed to both punch your pages and insert the GBC Proclick binding spine onto your documents.
  • This system is ideal for an office that is looking for an easy to use intuitive binding system that can produce high quality professional looking documents and reports.
  • It was designed specifically for small and medium sized organizations that need professional looking documents that can easily be edited by end users or company representatives.
  • This system is fast, easy to use and creates contemporary and professional documents that are sure to impress your customers and potential clients.

Strengths / Features:

  • The Proclick Pronto P3000 is an all in one binding solution that is designed for use in a professional office environment. It was designed to look very much like a large desktop laser printer. The design of this machine helps to make sure that it doesn't seem out of place in a professional office space. However, the machine is not only classy but it is also highly functional. It includes a binding punch at the bottom of the machine and an inserting unit at the top of the machine to finish your documents.
  • The P3000 is fast. In fact, once your documents are punched, it only takes about six seconds to insert and close the spine. That is faster than any other finishing unit on the market. The punch on this unit is simple to operate and is controlled by the touch of a button. It can handle between fifteen to twenty sheets of 20lb paper at a time which is a fairly decent punching capacity for an all in one binding unit.
  • Most large pieces of GBC modular binding equipment only come with a 90 day warranty. However, GBC has chosen to support this unit with a one year onsite warranty. This means that if you have problems with your unit during the first year that it is in service, GBC will come to your location and fix your machine for you. Very few other manufacturers offer that type of service.
  • The Pronto P3000 binds documents with the GBC Proclick binding system. This innovative new binding system has some real strengths. It can lay flat like comb binding, can wrap around like wire binding and offers a contemporary look that no other binding systems can match. Documents bound with this binding style can also be edited by end users by simply unzipping the spine of the document using a small zipper tool. This feature is ideal for sales organizations and companies that need to have their representatives edit documents in the field or on the go.

Weaknesses / Limitations:

  • The Proclick Pronto P3000 is only designed for use with letter sized documents that are bound on the eleven inch edge. It cannot be used with oversized covers, half sized sheets, legal sized paper or any other document sizes.
  • The thicknesses of documents that can be bound with this unit are also limited. There are currently only three sizes of spines available for this machine. Small spines are 5/16" in diameter and can handle about forty sheets of twenty pound paper. Medium spines are 1/2" and can handle about seventy sheets of paper. Large spines are 5/8" in diameter and can handle about one hundred sheets of paper. These spines come loaded into special cartridges that are inserted into the back of the machine. Unfortunately these are the only sizes that will work with the P3000. If these sizes don't work for your organization then you will need to choose a different binding style.
  • There are only four colors of spines available for this system. You can choose from Black, Navy Blue, White and Frost. Custom colors are not available and the last word from GBC was that there are no other colors planned for this system.
  • The binding punch on the P3000 is a medium duty punch that works great for punching standard paper and cardstock. The punch can even punch a clear cover if you punch it along with paper. However, the punch does not handle poly covers very well. It is highly recommended that you purchase prepunched Proclick pronto covers if you want to use plastic covers with this system. Plastic covers have too much flex for this punch and will ruin your punch if you attempt to punch them.
  • This system does not come with the small zipper tools that you use to open and close your documents. It does have a spine opening tool on the left side of the machine. However, it is a really good idea to order some extra zipper tools when you order the supplies for your machine so that you have them on hand for editing your documents. You can even give each of your employees their own zipper tool so that they can open and edit documents on their own.


  • The Proclick P3000 binding machine is a great machine for a small or medium sized office that is looking for an easy to use and highly professional binding system.
  • This machine looks a lot like a desktop laser printer and is designed to blend in with your other office equipment.
  • However, it can create highly professional, contemporary looking reports, presentations and proposals in record time.
  • Provided you can live with the sizes, colors and punching limitations of this machine it will be a great addition to your office.
