Clear cover and vinyl back: In the Print Lab, we offer the option of having a clear plastic cover front and a black vinyl back cover for spiral and wire-o binding or your custom cover. These options are there to provide extra durability to your printed project. This works exceptionally for projects such as cookbooks or employee handbooks.
Pages: Spiral and wire-o orders must be in two-page increments. Save your print-ready PDF with each single-facing page for your project, including the front and back cover. Upload pages in this order:
Size: Our standard sizes for spiral and wire-o are as follows:
Portrait: 8.5 x 11 | 5.5 x 8.5 | 6 x 9 | 4.25 x 11
Landscape: 11 x 8.5 | 8.5 x 5.5 | 9 x 6
Square: 6 x 6 | 8 x 8 | 10 x 10
Paper: For Spiral and Wire-o Binding, for the pages we recommend 100# Matte cover or 100# Matte text. However, if the project is a workbook or journal meant to be written in, we recommend 60# uncoated text.
Whether you choose spiral coil binding or wire binding, the Print and Imaging Lab provides exceptional spiral binding services and wire o binding services. If neither of these bookbinding types fit you for your project, consider our two most popular bookbinding types: Saddle Stitch or Perfect Bound books.
