Elijah Abron had a problem to solve. He wanted to make paper fasten together without using bulky binders, cumbersome paper clips or staples. Through trial and error he invented the Substrate sheets with removable strip and received a patent for the invention in May of 2006. This revolutionary product binds papers together through a simple step process. Stack the self-binding paper, pull the strip and the papers are securely fastened. Abron continues to head his company Eli's Papers in Shreveport, Louisiana.
