Mechanical Binding Services

mechanical bindingMechanical binding is an economical way to create bound documents that lay flat. It can also offer 360-degree rotation. The process involves trimming, collating, punching, inserting tabs when needed, inserting a wire or plastic coil and closing. At Steve’s Bindery Service, Inc., we have a variety of colors available that will enhance black and white printed material or complement the document’s cover. We offer both Plastic Coil Binding and Wire-O Binding.

Plastic Coil Binding

Plastic Coil Binding not only offers a wide range of colors, it is also durable. It will hold its shape and bounce back if pressure is applied. It is a smoother product than Wire-O Binding, especially when in children’s hands. There are several options for pitch, which is the spacing between coil loops. A wider pitch is needed for larger coil diameter.

Common uses for Plastic Coil Binding include:

  • Technical manuals
  • Classroom presentations
  • Workbooks
  • Notebooks
  • And much more

Wire-O Binding

Wire-O Binding uses a double-looped, coated metal. Bound documents and books have a competitive edge with this type of binding, and it adds a touch of classic elegance. This high-quality, attractive finish provides perfect page registration and because it has no “step-up,” it is great for crossover images.

Common uses for Wire-O Binding include:

  • Manuals
  • Notebooks
  • Calendars
  • Appointment books
  • Cookbooks
  • And more
