Spiral binding and what it has to offer
Spiral binding, wire binding, or wiro binding is the most affordable binding available from BachelorPrint and is very popular among students for short academic papers, but not only because of its low price. You can also choose the colour of the back page of your spiral binding in the BachelorPrint shop. We offer a range of wire binding colours so that you can give your work that extra special touch. Also, the transparent front cover draw the eye to the cover page of your paper or thesis.
In addition, you can decide whether you’d rather have your work bound with a plastic or metal wire binding. Only one thing is important: quality! And that’s exactly what you get from BachelorPrint!
BachelorPrint offers seven different colours for the back page of spiral binding. The spiral comes in standard black, which matches all back-page colours.
Select from the following colours for your back page:
- Royal blue
- Bordeaux red
- Dark green
- Sunshine yellow
The process of producing spiral binding/wire binding takes three basic steps. To begin, the printed content of the work, including the front film and the back page in the chosen colour are hole-punched. Different punched holes are required based on the spiral variant chosen.
In the second step, the front film and back page are placed on top of or under the punched sheets. In the third and final step, with the help of a machine, the spiral is inserted into the punched holes and closed.
The options for adding finishing touches to wire binding, also called wiro binding, are very limited. Individual embossing and corners and a ribbon in complementary colours are only possible with leather book binding but not with wiro binding.
However, you can still enhance the appearance of work bounding using wire binding. Thanks for the transparent front cover, you can draw the eye to your well-designed title page.

Different spiral sizes based on the number of pages for wire binding
Wire or spiral binding is offered in seven different sizes, based on the number of pages. The spiral diameters range from 6 mm to 22 mm. However, the maximum number of pages is also based on the weight of the paper used.
You can fit more sheets of 100 g/m² paper into spiral binding than you can 120 g/m² paper. If you need to bind more than 300 pages with wire binding, we would recommend double sided printing. That way, up to 600 printed pages, or 300 pages, fit into wire binding/wiro binding.
