We also know that sometimes large collections like this can be challenging to navigate. After all, how can you choose between the various options? Below we will provide a brief overview of each kind of binding style so you can make an informed decision on the best binding supplies for your needs.

Coil binding is a single piece of plastic that is spiraled into a coil from end-to-end. They are rolled through tightly spaced round or oval holes. It is incredibly durable with impressive bounce-back and comes in a huge selection of colors (+ custom colors). Coil bound books can flip 360 degrees.

Comb is one of the most affordable binding methods. Made from plastic, this single piece has “teeth” that roll into punched rectangular holes. They can be opened and closed over and over again, and the spines can be custom printed on, making them a great choice for those who may need to edit their document or want to personalize the spine.

Wire-O binding (or twin-loop binding) is a top-quality spine that has double loops inserted into usually square holes. The metal looks higher end than plastic alternatives and allows for perfect registration of your pages, makng it one of the best binding supplies for quality presentations.

Fastback is the most common brand name for tape binding. It uses heat to thermal bind a tape strip to the spine of a book. The strip is made of a fabric and comes in different finishes to pair great with report covers.

VeloBind and SureBind, also called legal binding, are most commonly used by court reporters and law firms. This is because of its innate tamper-proof bind. Heat is used to melt two pieces of plastic together around your pages, creating a secure bind that is very difficult to undue without damaging the book. Velo also allows for thick binding up to 3” stacks.

ProClick is a fun binding solution that looks a bit like plastic coil and wire combined. It allows for easy editing of your book as often as you need. You can use them with a machine or by hand with just a zipper tool.

Screw post or Chicago screw binding is the perfect alternative for anyone who wants to bind using a hole punch, instead of a binding machine. You can use one, two, three, or more along the binding edge. They come in a huge selection of colors and lengths up to 5” and extensions can also be added for even longer. Completely editable and reusable, screw posts are a popular loose binding option.

Ring binding is another popular option. This can refer to standard ring binders or loose rings not attached to any spine. We offer a huge selection of ring binders and loose leaf book rings to suit your needs.

Metal binding is unique alternative to traditional punch-and-bind, as they require no punching. When paired with a MasterBind machine, these spines are punched around your pages to hold them together; no glue or punching needed.

Spiral-O is just like Wire-O binding, but with further spaced loops to fit into a comb punch hole pattern. This is a great way for those with a comb binding machine to add wire bound documents to their batches. All you need is a wire closer to finish them.

Thermal binding supplies are a great choice for anyone who wants the ultimate professional report. Choose from soft cover and hard cover options, all that can be bound incredibly quickly using Coverbind, Fellowes, or your other compatible thermal binding machine.

Custom binding supplies are the perfect choice if you want to personalize your presentation. Combs, tape strips, and thermal covers can all be printed on with your report name, company information, and more. Standard spines like wire, coil, and comb can be custom cut to special lengths.
