7 hole 'classic' punches in Australia
After looking around for some time, I've finally found an affordable 7-hole punch for the 'classic' (8.5 x 5.5 inch; half US-letter) sized organiser paper in Australia.
Some background; in Australia, Collins-Debden and Filofax own the organiser market. Filofax appear determined to price themselves out of the Australian market (think 250% of US prices AFTER currency conversion; $240 US for an organiser that sells for $105 US on Amazon, and their refills cost approximately double that of Collins-Debden). Hence, I use a Debden DayPlanner; a 7 ring classic-sized binder.
After looking for some time, I noticed that Franklin-Covey have setup an online shop in Australia, and their metal 7-hole punch for the classic size is $23 AUS! Relatively cheap! I believe that the Franklin-Covey 7-ring classic binder has exactly the same ring configuration as the Debden classic 'DayPlanner'.
On purchase, I noted on the online payment that it went to Collins-Debden, so Debden obviously run the Franklin-Covey store here.
So there you have it; if you want affordable hole punches in Australia, go to Franklin-Covey... their 'classic' binders are the same as Debden, and I believe that all of their smaller models (e.g. personal) are the same ring configuration as Filofax (which are the same ring configuration as Debden; it's only the larger sizes that differ). The only thing they don't have covered is A5 Filofax, and I believe that you can do that by using a punch for the 'personal' size, flipped around so that it does 3 holes at a time.
