Wire-O Bound Books

Wire-o bound book printing provides unmatched style and luxury.

Order wire-o binding for formal, professional presentations.

Wire-o bound books are a stylish binding option guaranteed to impress your audience. Wire-o binding uses a metal, twin-loop binding wire, also called duo-wire. Unlike spiral binding, which is a coil shape, the metal wire is formed into many small, individual loops. These loops are hooked into the binding holes and mechanically squeezed/clamped together, with the "seam" inside the back cover.

Wire-o binding is great for formal, professional book presentations.

Wire-o book binding is an excellent choice for booklets and formal presentations which need to look professional and attractive.

Please note that wire-o binding is not recommended for books with high pages counts if readers will be flipping pages all the way around the back 360°, as this may bend the wire binding and cause sheets to come loose. For the most durable book binding which can be flipped through easily and held to read in any position, we recommend Spiral instead.

Common uses for Wire-o Bound Books include:

  • Business Reports
  • Portfolios
  • Planners
  • Custom Journals
  • Product Manuals
  • Food/Drink Menus
  • Community Directories
  • Hotel Guides

The metal wire-o bindings come in several color options:


These custom wire-o book binding options pair great with our wide range of cover materials, including heavy covers, colored vinyl, translucent and frosted plastic (clear and colored).

"Thank you for doing such an amazing job with my workbooks! They are the envy of my co-workers (I think some of them will be ordering with you guys in the near future) and my students love them. Thank you for keeping the prices so reasonable for such high-quality work. It is greatly appreciated!"Kristyn P. - NY

"Finding has been a great work and stress reliever. I lead workshops often. Before, I had printed small books on my laser printer. I sat by my printer for hours reading while page after page printed. Now, I upload a PDF and in a few days the beautiful workshop books are delivered to my door or to the destination of my workshop."Jerrie B. - MO

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.
