Wire-o binding makes catalogs look and feel very professional. The metal wire, available in many colors, adds a touch of elegance and style other binding types don’t match.
This makes these catalogs perfect for sales meetings, presentations, tradeshowers, conferences or anywhere you have the opportunity to put your best-looking print collateral in front of other professionals, decision makers and buyers. Wire bound catalogs put your best face forward by spreading brand awareness, generating leads and capturing sales everywhere you take them.
Wire-o binding uses a twin-loop method where the wire is inserted into the rectangular punch holes and mechanically squeezed closed in the back, creating a solid-feeling and gorgeous looking catalog. Printed cardstock covers are the most popular, but optional choices like clear or frosted plastic covers and colored vinyl backings give you even more options to make your printed catalogs match your brand’s image.
Wire-O Bound Catalogs: How They're Made
Watch a short video on how we assemble wire-o bound catalogs:
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.
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.
