Spiral Wire Binding

The most economical type of mechanical binding, single-wire spiral is ideal for products with short shelf lives like blank notebooks. It can also be a lower-cost alternative to Wire-O® when page registration is not an issue because it lies flat and opens back-to-back for hands-free use. Spiral wire binding is available in a variety of colors and allows for a mix of paper and cover stocks to accommodate foldouts, tabs, and inserts.
