10 Frequently-Asked Questions about the Spiral Binding Method
Spiral coils come in a variety of diameters to accommodate books of varying thicknesses, and the larger the coil diameter is required for proper function and aesthetics, the more pages the book has.
The maximum number of pages is determined by the capacity of the largest coil available for binding the book and the thickness of the paper used for the pages. A 2 diameter coil can hold 920 pages, but a book with this many pages will be bulky and difficult to handle. Spiral binding works well with a variety of book sizes, including pocket-sized books and most oversize books.
How much does it cost to spiral bound a book?

Are spiral bound books better?
1) Spiral binding is an excellent choice for reports, sales presentations, proposals, directories, cookbooks, instructional books, and maintenance manuals because the pages can open completely, preventing important information from becoming buried near the book’s spine.
What is the appropriate margin for a document that is to be spiral bound?
Leave enough margin space on your document’s pages before printing; standard spiral coils require 1 to 1 1/2-inch margins on all sides, with a 1/2-inch margin on the left. If your print is too close to the edge of the paper, the holes and coils will punch through your text.
