    Stride’s QuickFit binders are truly a “Quick Fit”. What we mean is, it’s much easier to load cover materials into the clear overlay of our binder. In fact it is so easy, time studies show there is a cost savings of time and labor. This cost savings may actually pay for the binder. If you or your customer have many presentation binders to assemble, why waste time with standard view binders? Cutting out spine labels and inserting the cover in two separate steps wastes time. QuickFit loads in one step without any cutting or trimming. A standard 8.5 x 11 piece of paper “slides right in” and to make it even easier, we provide free templates online at www.quickfitbinders.com

25 Years of Inventive Office Products

Stride Incorporated looks for ways to develop office products which enables “ease of use” to you, the consumer, when utilizing products in your day to day tasks around the office.



Stride is a unique small business, manufacturing and selling office products, including ring binders, writing instruments and other office products to large corporations across the United States from our headquarters in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Stride does custom manufacturing in our Reno, Nevada manufacturing facility. The name Stride was trademarked in 1982 and was chosen because their products were made by some very special employees, people with developmental and intellectual delays. Adults who had a job in an integrated environment and were earning a paycheck. They’ve made great strides in their personal development!



Stride, Inc. is a small, woman-owned business but not by choice!  Original founders Don and Barbara Brennan purchased a pen manufacturing company from a not-for-profit group whose primary focus was to employ adults with developmental delays in a sheltered work environment.  The founders had a dream to turn the business into a for-profit; maintaining the mission of special needs employment in an integrated environment.  Two months after the purchase, Don unexpectedly died, leaving Barbara to carry on their dream alone.  By employing special needs workers, Stride not only cultivates the dream Barbara and Don had for their company but also the aspirations of an exceptional workforce, their families, and a community that’s seeking to find meaningful work for them.




Thank you for visiting our website! Stride is very special to everyone in the Stride family. The third of my five children was born with hydrocephalus. Blind by the time he was two, Joe died shortly before his 8th birthday. This has led us to a lifetime of working for, and with, people who have special needs. Our vision has created success for our company. We sell to some of the biggest corporations in the USA by having quality products and fast delivery. But our mission is important to our customers also. Stride knows that working, mastering a task, gaining a skill, is the best builder of self-esteem in the world. And in the many years Stride has been in business, over 200 people have out-grown our factory and are now employed in the community.  Come join us in this mission. We would greatly appreciate your business.

Barbara Brennan, Founder/Owner.
