Product of the Month: Wiro Binding

Commercial printing

Wiro binding is recognised as one of the most effective binding techniques – commonly used on sketch books, note pads and calendars. This binding method involves a punch and bind machine to punch holes in the document and then insert a twin loop wire around it to secure it.

Here we look at some of the benefits of wiro binding:


Wiro binding is more durable than coil or spiral binding. While these processes utilise a single continuous loop of plastic that is wound around the document, wiro binding uses twin wire loop to bind it. The more complex twin loop system also makes the product tamper-resistant.


A wiro bound document can support both low and high page counts and the pages can rotate 360 degrees so can be folded back on itself or opened completely flat.

Premium Look

While a little more expensive than some other binding methods wiro binding gives a professional and stylish look. The wires come in a range of colours and are not just practical and durable but elegant and attractive too.
