Description

Wire binding has a few different names including, spiral binding and comb binding, but essentially these are all the same.

The biggest benefit of a wire bind is the printed document will lay flat, making it easy to use whether printed single or double sided

Spiral binding – this is a single plastic coil that is threaded through the punched holes

Comb binding – is similar to our wire binding, but combs are made from plastic and can be broken/damaged easily.

Our wire binds use either 3:1 pitch (3 holes to every inch) or a 2:1 pitch (2 holes to every inch) depending on the page count
