Spiral Binding & Coil Binding Printing Options

Cover options

Spiral bound books have a soft cover, available in 10-point and 12-point thickness. All spiral bound books can be printed with custom book covers, using enhancements like our Diamond 3D foil, texture or clear, spot gloss options. Leatherette covers are also available in several colors and can be customized with Diamond 3D Foil.

Efficient and attractive

Our spiral binding is made from durable plastic coil that is auto punched. Plastic coil binding offers advantages over wire coil binding, as it won’t easily bend, and it comes in lots of coil color options to match your cover artwork.

Tab and divider options

Spiral binding allows us to add tabs or divider pages of heavier stock, which you can’t do with other types of book binding. Tabs and dividers are good options for workbooks or cookbooks, allowing you to easily designate sections for quick reference.
