Would spiral or wire-o binding be best for my book printing job?

Spiral book binding uses a plastic coil that is more durable and allows for frequent use while wire-o binding is for more formal use and is more professional-looking. The spiral binding coil offers a variety of colors whereas wire-o’s standard wire is black. Wire-o generally has a lower page count than plastic spiral binding.

Product Details

Spiral Binding is more durable than wire-o binding but does not have the professional look of a wire-o bound book. A spiral bound book uses a durable plastic coil which makes it an ideal option for spiral book binding that needs to lie flat and can fold or wrap back around themselves (360 degree) and are continually being referred to. The plastic coil allows for frequent use that not damage the book binding coil. Spiral bound book printing is great for instruction and repair manuals, cookbooks, directories, handbooks, guides, and other reference materials. Spiral binding is excellent for wall calendars and planners can hang flat against the wall.

Digital Softcover Photo Book Printing Services

Softcover photo books are printed on a more durable, heavier weight cover paper to give your book a little more thickness and heft.

  • We have a customer who takes 500 of his key personnel to Hawaii for a week. They take pictures of everyone and when they get back, they put them into a photo book and give them to the participants. Can you imagine the goodwill this creates with an employee?
  • I have been to several sales and training seminars where they have taken pictures of the proceedings, meetings, dinners, golf events, spouses enjoying themselves, etc. and when the event was over, they presented the attendees with photo books of the event.
  • One of our customers even sends photo calendars to everyone featuring the event. They make sure to mark off the event dates for their upcoming events next year so everyone can be sure to attend.

  3. Consider selling your photo books at the recital to make an easy profit.
  4. Keep a record of past and current sponsors to contact for next year’s photo book.

This was the best book at the best price! I wanted to print a family history book of just under 100 pages, which was just under $100 on Shutterfly/Mixbook. I took a leap of faith with an online printer and got a quality book for a price the family could afford - 10 books at $25 each. Thank you.
