How does the Spiral Bound process work?
The Spiral Bound process uses plastic coils to secure all pages and the cover together. The coils are threaded through punched holes located at the spinal edge of each sheet. After the plastic coil is inserted, we add extra security by crimping the ends to prevent your book from falling apart.
Is spiral binding a good choice for small or large print orders?
The spiral binding process uses coils instead of an adhesive. This is the main reason it provides an excellent alternative to perfect binding for smaller production runs. In addition, the turnaround time is quicker, and the binding cost is reduced.
What is the maximum number of pages that can be used with spiral binding?
The answer depends on what type of coil is used and can vary according to the paper thickness selected for the project.
