Wire-O Binding Offers High Quality and Affordability

What is wire-o binding?

Wire-o binding uses a double thickness of wire that is bound in a spiral in order to form an uninterrupted hinge of double loops. These loops interlock with the leaves and cover of your mechanically bound product, creating a durable and effective binding. This method allows the book to fold over itself and also lay completely flat, and facing pages are always perfectly aligned. The ends of the connectors and hinges are hidden within the inside back cover, which gives the product a neat, finished, and complete look. Long popular for both commercial and personal projects, wire-o binding is an affordable way to bind any book.
