"Back to the old grind."
One of Henry's lines when punching in.


The punch card stand is a save system located from throughout the chapters of Bendy and the Ink Machine. Interacting it automatically saves the player's game progress, and will cause Henry to say random things.

It has the appearance of a normal punch card stand with a clock on it. There is usually a sign next to the stand with a text that says "DON'T FORGET TO PUNCH IN! IT COULD SAVE YOUR JOB!".


Chapter 1: Moving Pictures

The punch card stand can be found in the pub room.

Chapter 2: The Old Song

It is located next to between Wally's closet and Sammy's office.

Chapter 3: Rise and Fall

Many more of these appear in Chapter 3. This is because the chapter is much longer than the previous chapters, and much harder in difficultly due to spawning Searchers and the "Butcher Gang" enemies - Piper, Fisher, and Striker.

Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders

There's a punch card stand down the stairs in Bendy Land. It is the only one that appear in this chapter.


  • Before Chapter 3's release, there is no punch card stand anywhere in earlier previous updates from both Chapter 1 and 2.
  • The card from on top of the punch card stand is written with Henry's name.
  • As the back area is never seen visibly in-game, looking up in the punch card stand's texture map from the files reveals the back view of the said stand and there is a text that reads "TIME KEEPER".
