Plastic coil binding, also known as spiral binding or spiral coil binding, is a bookbinding method that involves inserting a plastic coil or spiral through small oval holes punched along the edge of a stack of pages. The coil is then crimped at both ends to keep the pages securely bound together.
Plastic coil binding is a popular and practical binding method for documents that need to lie flat when opened, such as training manuals, cookbooks, or calendars. It also allows for easy page turning and the ability to include tabs or divider pages during book assembly.
The plastic coil is available in a variety of colors and sizes, making it easy to customize the look of the bound document. It is also a durable binding option that can withstand repeated use and handling, making it ideal for frequently referenced materials.
