Great for manuals, promotional material and textbooks, plastic spiral binding is the standard in binding. It is formed by coiling a single section of plastic wire through a punched book and crimping (snipping & fastening the end of the coil) at either end. Spiral binding can open 360 degrees and allows for easy photocopying and note taking. Plastic spiral binding is available in a wide range of colors and gauges to give you the exact look you desire.
Perfect binding is an adhesive binding using EVA hot melt adhesive. Also called a “softcover” which is similar to a paperback novel binding, it is excellent for brochures, books and manuals. Using our SULBY Auto-Minabinda MKII perfect binder we are able to create the highest quality perfect bound product for our customers.
Double Wire-O Binding
Professional, secure and versatile, Wire-O binding is one of the most popular styles available and is perfect for manuals, calendars, cookbooks, promotional materials and more. Pre-formed pairs of wired loops are inserted into a punched book allowing pages to lie flat for easily accessible photocopying and note taking. Wire-O binding elements are available in multiple colors (white, black, silver, bronze, gold, pewter, blue, grey, green, and red) and sizes to give your books the exact look you desire.
Plastic Comb Binding
Durable yet professional, plastic comb binding lets pages lie flat and allows you to easily add or remove pages with a machine. It comes in a variety of sizes and colors and wont scratch, discolor or chip.
Saddle stitching is the most commonly used binding option and is excellent for brochures, newsletters, booklets, direct mailers, catalogs and pamphlets. Folded pages are laid over a “saddle” and the material is then stapled along the spine.
