Wire-bound (spiral-bound) book printing, booklets & manuals

Secure, flexible and durable: hand out information in one go.

Wire-bound books (sometimes called spiral-bound books) or manuals are the most popular choice for courses where material is to be handed out all at once, i.e. not in small modules. They are also convenient back in the workplace in situations where holding the manual in one hand makes life easier e.g. in a workshop.

Fixed bindings may not be suitable for courses in which the trainer wishes to hand out modules stage by stage. Ring-bound manuals offer a better solution in such cases.

These type of books may also be unsuitable for situations where safety and security could be compromised by the presence of metallic wire. In these cases plastic coil-bound books may be more suitable.

Please let us know if you would like to receive a bound hard-copy proof of your manual before the final print run.
