Wiro Bound Books - DL

Black and white print

Need to make a good first impression? Choose our dl wiro bound books for a stylish and professional way to present your documents.

Wiro Bound books, also known as Acetate Covered Books, Spiral Bound Books, Coil Binding or Wiro Bound Documents, are the perfect way to showcase your annual reports or presentation documents. Traditional PUR binding techniques bind the pages together at the spine and so they have to be held open to stay on any one particular page. With wiro bound books however, the pages can move freely round the spine and lie flat or fold back on themselves.

Are you the next Mary Berry? The spiral binding makes our wiro bound books the ideal choice for presenting your recipes. Have you ever noticed how you always seem to lose your page in the recipe book at a crucial moment? Our wiro bound books are the ideal solution, they even come with a clean Acetate cover to protect your documents or recipes!

Our standard Wiro Bound Books are available in sizes DL (99mm x 210mm) in either portrait or landscape. We recommend using 130gsm silk stock for the inner pages and a robust 350g silk front and back cover. However more choices are available upon request, such as a heavier, quality cover with lamination.

With full colour single or double sided printing and various printing options it's quick and easy to create your own custom spiral bound books, design them to your exact specifications and personalise them to reflect your company brand and message.

We aim to deliver your finished DL Wiro Bound Books within 3-5 working days of proof approval.

Designs can be uploaded at the checkout stage. Files should be uploaded in PDF format as single pages; our team can give you guidance as required.

To see our full range of sizes finishes, lamination and printing options please see the specifications tab.

What is wiro binding?

Wiro binding is a method of bookbinding where each page of the booklet (including the cover) is hole-punched and threaded onto a wire comb.

What are the advantages of perfect binding?

Wiro bound books offer very little spinal tension and can be laid flat while open, which makes them handy for hands-free applications such as recipe books and instructions.

Unlike other bookbinding methods which open two pages at a time, wiro booklets can be opened on a single page; you can turn pages a full 360 degrees with no damage to the spine. This reduced footprint makes wiro booklets ideal for desktop stationery, such as journals, notebooks and more.

Wiro books can also contain an even or odd number of pages, with any combination of paper stocks.

How many pages can my wiro bound books have?

You can view our page count options in the table below. Each paper sheet (or ‘leaf’) of your brochure will have two printed pages (pp); one on each side of the paper.

You can also add an additional 8 pages to each book using the table below; but if you need a slightly different number of pages to the options here, call us on 023 8087 8037 to discuss your requirements.

What sizes are available?

Wiro bound books are available in the following standard sizes. Please note that these measurements refer to the size of the brochure when closed:

  • A4 (210mm by 297mm)
  • A5 (148mm by 210mm)
  • A6 (105mm by 148mm)
  • DL (99mm by 210mm)
  • Square (205mm by 205mm)

What materials are these products printed on?

Please see the Specification tab for more information on this product’s standard material specification. Alternative stocks and grades can be supplied for most products to help you customise your order - simply get in touch to discuss your print requirements.

Will my wiro bound books be printed via litho printing or digital printing methods?

The right print method will depend on a number of factors; including the product type, quantity and turnaround time you require.

Better Printing can produce your order on either litho or digital, with both available in-house. Our sales team can recommend the most cost-effective solution for your needs and will confirm your preferred method before going to print.

How do I select portrait or landscape?

All brochures and booklets are produced in portrait orientation (with the spine located on the longer edge of the booklet) by default. Alternatively, you can specify landscape orientation for your brochures if needed at the checkout stage.

What imposition or page order format should I use for my artwork?

We recommend supplying artwork as single pages in the same order as you want them to appear in the finished brochure. Please avoid supplying your artwork in printer’s pairs or double page spreads, as this may extend production times of your print order.
