Wire Binding is a very useful and versatile bookbinding option, with the capability of opening flat as well as allowing the pages to go around the wire and back around on itself, this is ideal for sketchbooks and note pads alike.

Wire Binding is sometimes called 'Wiro' and is a similar type of binding to 'Spiro' and 'Spiral' Binding in appearances and functionality. Some Universities and Colleges use the term 'Temporary' binding for this process. Wire Binding is a commonly recognised book binding style and is used for documents, note pads and sketchbooks. We at Kristal Bookbinders, bind Wire bound books and it is one of our near instant style bindings. Therfore it is usually bound using our while-u-wait service. Wire Bindings can have Printed or Plain Card covers. In addition Clear Acetate and Frosted covers can be used. All of these covers come with the option to have your own text printed with our Hot Foiling option. A variety of colours are available and you can learn more by visiting our Foil Printing page or checking the Foil Printing on book cover section when filling out the form below.

Wire Binding can be regarded as a common bookbinding style, but we at Kristal use the same skill and dedication as our other bound volumes.
