Advantages of wire binding

No more loose and flying documents: this type of binding - alsoknown at under the name wire comb binding or wire-o binding - shows its strengths where stability and reliability are required while maintaining a professional appearance. Further advantages when using these inexpensive products:

  • The dimensionally stable character of wire comb bindings protects important personal documents.
  • Wire binding is an uncomplicated solution for creating a representative and attractive folder from sheets and foils.
  • Elegant brochures that can be turned 360 degrees can be quickly realised with high-quality and cost-effective wire comb binding.
  • Thanks to the binding, booklets such as notebooks or instruction manuals remain flat when opened.
  • Calendar hangers, which are incorporated into the binding spines, enable the design and simple installation of an attractive wall calendar.
  • Accessories: The SPRINTIS range includes practical filing strips for the selected wire binding spines.

Special wire binding machines are required for the binding process. This also requires the sheets to be punched. SPRINTIS offers suitable punching machines for both square and round holes in the online shop.

Uses of wire bindings

Wire bindings can be used for a wide variety of purposes. They are ideal for producing reports, presentations, manuals, training materials, calendars, notebooks and therefore all documents where it is desirable for the bound pages to remain open.

Customise wire comb bindings

Choice of binding spines and accessories

To set the right tone for every occasion and purpose, SPRINTIS offers you a wide range of different colours for the wire binding spines to be used. Whether classic, elegant or in your primary corporate colour, nothing is left to be desired. This applies both to binding spines in sections and on spools, which are also available in all standard colours in the online shop as custom-made products. We look forward to your enquiry!

A wide selection of different shapes, colours and lengths also awaits you when choosing our calendar hangers, which are primarily used for wire comb binding and are extremely easy to use. The corresponding calendar hanger is simply inserted into the binding. The straight calendar hanger variant is also suitable for use with fully automatic binding machines.

Combinations: Covers and back covers for wire binding

If required, back covers and covers can be used as a high-quality jacket and protection against soiling or folding of the pages. The advantage of this combination is a significantly increased durability of the wire-bound documents. For this purpose, we offer you various formats and materials, such as rigid PVC or polypropylene film with different thicknesses. Depending on your requirements, the cover sheet can have a transparent, matt-transparent or translucent-coloured character.

Difference between wire comb binding (Wire-O binding) and spiral binding

These two types of binding are often mixed together, but what is the difference? The spiral binding spines from SPRINTIS are plastic spirals that are twisted into the holes after the sheets have been punched and bent at both ends.

With wire binding, on the other hand, a wire comb is pressed into the punched holes of the documents using the appropriate binding device. The higher initial purchase price of a wire binding machine is offset by the high stability of the binding on the one hand and the flexibility in the selection of documents to be bound on the other. In addition, there is no recognisable page offset when the product is opened.
