Remember when you were a kid and school was about to start and you stocked up on spiral notebooks? Yeah, we all remember them. Some of us still buy them. Whether you liked the tear out pages or the ones that had perforations, those notebooks were in every kid’s desk. Today, in our adult world, those spirals are being put to a whole other use.
Presentations, catalogs, reports, manuals – so many reasons to use spiral binding. Wisconsin professionals have been using this technology for binding up all kinds of information. You can get really creative with binding these days. Choosing colors and styles of the binding will only enhance the look of your project. The three main types of spiral binding are:
* Wire-O: Also known as double loop or twin loop binding, this binding has a narrow and wide end that comes together during installation that is kind of like a zipper. Wire-O is a lay flat option that also allows for cross alignment between pages.
* Plastic Spiral Binding: This binding is great for materials being mailed as it is crush resistant. It’s flexible, lightweight and scratch resistant. Need a special color? You can get a wide variety of choices when you choose this type of binding. This type of binding is commonly used for children’s books, education material and calendars. Similar to wire spiral, this binding allows for lay flat use.
* Spiral Wire: Nylon coated wire spiral allows for easy lay flat uses. Allowing the book to be completely folder over, it is space saving for reference use. Standard wire color is black, red, blue, white, green, brass and brown.
What Will You Use It For?
