Infinite Official Collection Card Vol. 2 Binder Review

Infinite released their second set of official collection cards, "Space: The Arts," on June 26th, 2015, which I reviewed here. Almost six months later, I finally got the accompanying official binder. The format of this binder is very similar to Infinite's official binder from their first collection card set, which I reviewed here.
This binder has a canvas-like matte texture and a gorgeous, monochromatic image of space to match its theme. This time they use the "Last Romeo" logo instead of creating a new logo, unlike last time. There is also a nice exterior slip, shown in the first picture. The backside of the slip just has the product information.
Here is back of the binder. The silver lettering looks really pretty against the matte black background.
The silver lettering also looks really pretty on the sides; they're a lot more visible than the first binder. It's just weird how the right side's lettering is upside down though, whereas the right side's lettering on the first binder is right side up.
The dimensions are about 10.25" x 8.5" x 1.5." It is about 2/16" thinner than the "Lucky Guys" binder, which is an upgrade because it minimizes the dead space inside. The contents of the binder are separated into three parts; you can see the clear sleeves on top and the white pieces of paper on the bottom inside the binder.
The binder is really sturdy and held together with two strong magnets on the right to keep the front cover closed. This is a 3-ring binder, with the rings 1" in diameter. The top includes a card stock cover of Infinite, the first of the three contents inside the binder.
Here are the sleeves.
The sleeve margins include "OFFICIAL COLLECTION CARD VOL 2" and "INFINITE," just like in the first set; this time the "N" in "INFINITE" are printed the correct way though.
The last section has all the black-and-white sheets of paper revealing all the cards in order, so you have to put all the sleeves in between each sheet yourself. I really like how they includes these sheets, so you can clearly see all the cards you're missing (making you want to buy more cards...), and especially to see cards that you'd probably never get, like these fabric cards.
Here are how the pages look after putting my cards into the sleeves. These eye cards are so pretty~ And the empty spots are just begging to be filled...

Overall, I really like the binder and its upgraded quality. If you're planning on collecting all or majority of the cards, I definitely recommend getting this binder so you can organize your collection well and know which ones you're missing. But if you're more focused on collecting all the cards and have a tight budget, I'd suggest getting two boxes of cards first instead of buying one box and one binder, just so you can trade cards while people are still trading (this is advice more for future star card releases).
