Vinyl 3-Ring School Binders from 1964.  These were very popular items in 1964-1965.  3 Ring Binders were manufactured by 3 companies in 1964:  Standard Plastic Products (SPP, USA),  New York Looseleaf (NYL, USA) and a Canadian Company which also produced the really cool School Bag.  SPP also produced such items as Kaboodle Kits, wallets and pencil cases.  The Canadian 3 ring binder has never been documented in any book;  this binder varies from the others as it has only 1 Beatles' signature for each Beatle instead of 2 for the American versions.  It has the same litho as the Canadian School Bag along with the exact same copyright information printed at the bottom on the front cover.  The SPP binders can be found in 7 different colors:  Pink, Red, Yellow, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Lavender and Beige.  The NYL company only produced a white binder and is shown in the group picture below.   The Canadian binder was produced in beige with the graphics and lettering in brown ink.  The Canadian binder also differs in that the vinyl has a pebbly feel whereas the other binders have a smooth vinyl surface.  Also shown is a Binder Store Shipping Box which contained 1 binder as a bonus for the dealer.  Not all colors used by SPP have been verified for each of their products.  For instance a peach colored 3 ring binder mfg by SPP has never been documented!
