Wire Binding is very useful and versatile bookbinding style, with the capability of opening flat and the pages are able to go around the Wire Bound fitting and back around upon itself, this is ideal for calendars and note pads alike.
Wire Binding is sometimes called 'Wiro' and is similar type of binding to 'Spiro' and 'Spiral' Binding in appearances and functionality. Some Universities and Colleges use the term 'Temporary' binding for this process. Wire Binding is a common recognised bookbinding style and is used for documents, note pads, calendars. We at City Binders bookbinders, bind Wire bound books and it is one of our “near instant” style bindings. Therfore it is usually bound using our “while-u-wait” service. Wire Bindings can have Printed or Plain Card covers. In addition Clear Acetate covers can be used.
The Wire binding system does not have any restrictions in the length of the binding edge and we at City Binders bookbinders can Wire bind pages from A6 to A0, time allowances permitting.
Wire Binding can be regarded as a common bookbinding style, but we at City Binders bookbinders bind these with the same skill and dedication as our other bound volumes.
In addition, we have made the Wire binding system itself a design feature of the binding system. This is done by using a number of fittings in a symmetrical design along the binding edge. A further adaptation can incorporate the Wire binding within a 3 piece Hardcover adhering the wired book to the back cover of the case cover this gives a standard Wire binding stability, protection and a luxurious visual appearance. A hard case cover has the added advantage of foil lettering or blocking on the outside cover.
Furthermore, the Wire binding can be a design feature purely on its own merits; this can be incorporating the card cover within the Wire binding system with 'Canadian and Half Canadian styles of Wire binding.
Another design is that the Wire bind becomes the design as the following series of pictures may illustrate;
This is a very simple design, similar to an opening flower, as each leaf/side opened new images completed the final design. (due to copyright we are unable to show the original).
