Printing Out Digital Notebooks

For competitions that require hard copies of notebooks, what “binding” should you use? Is it ok to turn in a 3 ringed binder with the pages for your notebook or is it suggested you get it printed more professionally?

3 Ring Binder is good, judges are focused on the content of the notebook, not the presentation. (good formatting still applies, but the type of notebook or binding doesn’t matter.


Expanding on what Dave-TBR said the only things judges look at when judging notebooks is the topics mentioned in the engineering notebook rubric.
