We didn't use a binder or sleeves. We simply clipped together related papers and flagged them with those yellow sticky Post-It notes. We divided them into logical sections: identification documents, relationship evidence, intention to marry evidence, sponsorship and support evidence etc - sometimes adding a covering note where needed (for example: we attached a note to the sponsorship papers to explain an unexpected payment into one of our bank accounts). We then attached two letters to the top of the pile: an opening letter from my partner (applicant), and a letter me (sponsor).

We did similarly too, everything in a pile, sections separated by paper clips and headings indicated on post-it notes. My understanding is that papers are re-organized for viewing by the entry clearance officer, so any unnecessary "presentation" materials are probably not only unnecessary but also a pain for them to have to deal with.

But document and copy clipped together and placed in a plastic punched pocket and put in a ringbinder is fine, as pages can be taken out and rearranged. Don't put them in a permanent heat- bonded binder.
