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 works, but not only because of the low prices. You can simply choose the colour of the back page of spiral binding in the BachelorPrint shop. Here, we offer a range of colours of wire binding so that you can give your work that extra special touch. Also, the transparent front film attracts the first look to your paper or thesis.

In addition, you can decide whether you’d rather have your work bound with a plastic or metal spiral in wire binding. Only one thing is important: quality! And that’s exactly what you get from BachelorPrint!

Spiral binding is most suited to shorter pieces of work. For longer or more significant work, spiral binding is not used so frequently. The reason here is the simple look.

We recommend spiral binding for the following academic works:





BachelorPrint offers the spiral binding back page in seven selected colours. For the colour of the spiral, we offer standard black, which matches all back page colours.

The following colours can be chosen for your back page:

  • Black
  • Royal blue
  • Bordeaux red
  • Dark green
  • White
  • Sunshine yellow
  • Grey

The production process of work with spiral binding/wire binding takes place across three basic steps. To begin, the printed content of the work including front film and the back page in the chosen colour are punched with holes. Different punched holes are required according to the spiral variant chosen.

In the second step, the punched sheets are surrounded by the front film and the back page. In the third and final step, with the help of a machine, the spiral is inserted into the punched holes and closed.

The possibilities 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.

The look of the work with wire binding can still be enhanced though. This is thanks for the transparent front film, which puts the well deigned title page of the work on display.

Different spiral strengths according to number of pages for wire binding

Wire or spiral binding is offered in seven different strengths, or sizes, according to 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.

Here, more sheets of 100 g/m² paper fit into the spiral than 120 g/m² paper. If you need to bind more than 200 pages with wire binding, we would recommend double sided printing. That way, up to 400 printed pages, or 200 pages, fit into wire binding/wiro binding.
