Wire-O Bound Books (Metal Wire Binding)

Our Wire-O bound books use a twin loop wire with an eye-popping metal finish to create a sleek, professional book that works great for many applications.

Unlike spiral binding, which uses a continuous plastic coil wound left-to-right through the binding holes, the twin metal loops are hooked into each hole individually and then mechanically clamped together with the "seam" inside the back cover. While this binding type is very attractive and functional, it is not recommended if readers will be flipping pages all the around the back 180%, as this may bend the wires and cause sheets to come loose.

We Recommend Wire-o Binding for:

  • Business Reports
  • Portfolios
  • Training Books
  • Custom Journals
  • Personal Planners
  • Food/Drink Menus
  • Community Directories
  • Hotel Guides

Wire-O uses metal coils and comes in a variety of colors: black, white, red, blue and pewter.

Wire-O Bound Books: How They're Made

Wire-O Binding Margin

Binding Margin

For wire-o bound books, the binding will go into the page approximately .25". To make sure you don't have any content that goes into or is too close to the binding, we recommend at least a .5" binding margin. If you are worried how the margins on your book will look, we recommend ordering a hard copy proof first before we print all of your books.

Page Numbers

If you have page numbers in your file and are printing double sided, it is recommended to have alternating page numbers so they stay on the outer edges of the book. If you have your page numbers all on the left or right side of your pages, then half of the page numbers will be in near the binding of the book making it hard to navigate. For a professional look when printing double sided, alternate the location of the page numbers.
