Canadian Bound Books

Looking for a more presentable alternative to wiro-bound booklets? Canadian wiro binding offers the perfect solution - and here at Better Printing, you can create your own custom-printed Canadian-bound books at great prices.

Each Canadian-bound booklet consists of a standard wiro-bound booklet with a stylish wraparound cover; which not only hides the wire loop when closed, but also offers a printable spine for more elegant bookshelf display.

It’s great for boosting the presentation quality of your booklets, while retaining their ability to open flat - ideal for recipe books and repair manuals!

At Better Printing, the design and style of your bespoke-printed booklets is completely up to you. Choose from half-Canadian binding (which covers the wiro spine from the front and side of the booklet) or full-Canadian binding (which also hides the spine from the back as well).

And there’s plenty more print specification options available to make your books your own; including sizes, die-cut shapes, page counts, material stocks, finishing options and extras. You can even select from back, silver or white wire loops to complement your booklet artwork colours.

Plus, if you can’t find the print specs you’re looking for under the Specification tab above, Better Printing can provide a fully bespoke book print run to match your requirements. Simply call our sales team on 023 8087 8037 or email us on for a quote today!
