Anyone work at Kinkos? Or familiar with a clear plastic thick material used as a report cover there? Help me please.

The VP downstairs has a booklet that was printed at Kinkos. It's 8.5 x 11, landscape, the pages are just typical bond or whatever, the back cover is chipboard maybe, and the front cover is a plastic translucent "board". It's not clear, it's frosted so to speak. The book is plastic coil bound.

This VP wants to bind some booklets the same way, but these are 17" x 11" and Kinkos does not have the cover stock in anything larger than legal size.

They are not very forthcoming on what the cover material is called, perhaps they really don't know. So I am reduced to trying to describe this stuff to my vendors, much like I am trying to describe it here, and so far, so bad, finding it.

I'd like to Google this material and find a source, as Kinkos says they will bind his booklets with supplied material. BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS CALLED.

I have tried various word combinations but it's not working.

Anyone know what this stuff is called? It looks like Glama if you are familiar with that, but it is thick like a really thick duplex stock. What is this stuff?

Is it paper like Glama or is it plastic?

Glama does have a 65# cover now...

It feels like plastic to me. I don't actually have it here, maybe I need to go down and have another look. But it is thicker than 65#, I'm sure. Thanks for the the tip about Glama, maybe they would be okay with using that since I seem to be coming up short here!

I work at Kinko's, so here's the scoop. I'm not sure if we can get the frosted covers in 11x17. The frosted covers are made by GBC and I know they make custom covers in 8.5x11, but not sure about 11x17.

I would contact GBC and inquire with them. We can get clear 11x17 covers up to 10ml, but most stores dont stock it because we do very little binding of 11x17s.

Thank you Stavs. According to the woman at GBC, 11 x 17 would be a custom order, so I don't think we will be using the GBC frosted cover!

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions.
