The advantages of spiral binding

book bindingMany businesses use booklets and brochures to promote products or advertise their services while others use booklet printing for reports, magazines and manuals. We regularly print all of these for customers and we offer a number of binding solutions depending on the purpose and size of your document. There’s perfect bound, saddle stitched and spiral bound.

Spiral binding is often the best solution for documents of between of four and 180 leaves – or 360 printed pages. Also known as wiro or coil binding, spiral binding is where the document is held together with a black metal wire spine that is fed through holes punched near the edge of the pages.

There’s no fold or solid spine in spiral bound books, so they can open flat and fold completely back on themselves.This makes spiral binding a perfect solution when printing reference material, recipe books, manuals, reports and notebooks. They’re also great for presentations because they can lie open on a desk for easy reference.
