Book Printing: Spiral/Coil – Wire-O – Perfect Bound

When it comes to binding books, there are several different techniques that you can use. Our experienced team is here to support you in all your book printing and binding needs. 

Spiral/Coil Binding

Spiral Binding and Coil Binding are interchangeable terms for the same bookbinding method. This popular method joins the pages and cover of a book using a durable plastic or metal coil shaped like a long spring. The coil is inserted and twisted through small holes or slots punched along the spinal edge of the book’s cover and pages.

The spiral coil holds the pages and covers yet still allows them to open freely. One of the primary user benefits of a spiral-bound book is that the pages can be opened a full 360 degrees. This allows an open book to fold back upon itself and yet remain flat, so it stays open for easy reference while taking up minimal room on a desk or table. 

This feature makes spiral binding an excellent choice for reports, sales presentations, proposals, directories, cookbooks, instruction manuals, and maintenance guides. 

Wire-O Binding

There are two main styles of wire binding – double loop wire binding and wire comb binding. When you choose wire binding, you can have wires designed in a variety of colors and lengths. Wire color and wire length both depend on what your needs for the project are. 

Wire binding can come across as more professional than spiral binding. And when you select wire-o binding, you can also be sure that the book will lay flat. If you are looking to save money, wire binding, particularly wire-o binding, can be an excellent way to achieve great results.  

Perfect Binding

Perfect binding is a popular type of book binding you see on soft cover books, such as paperback books and magazines. The internal pages are printed on both sides of text weight paper, then gathered together (collated) into a book, one on top of the other, in numbered page order. The cardstock cover of the perfect-bound book is placed over and around the inside pages, attached along the binding edge by the application of a strong yet flexible PUR glue.
