Any documents you want to bind with the 2.5:1 Pitch Plastic Coil will open fully from front to back and will easily lie flat on a table. This plastic coil is suitable for mailing thanks to the lightweight material. It also complies with CPSIA regulations as it is both lead and phthalate free. Also available in White and Black.

Choose a Coil Size / Diameter

Now choose your coil diameter for your page capacity. You can use the capacity chart here to help choose the best size based on your stack thickness or an estimate of your sheet capacity. Finding how to choose the best coil size is easier than you may think with our capacity chart. There is also a general rule with 3 simple steps to get the proper fit for any kind of binding that works as well: ① Take the book being bound and lay it flat on a table. ② Don't compress the paper and measure the thickness of the binding edge. ③ Take the measurement and add 1/8" - that will be the size of the binding element recommended for your document thickness.

* You will also see that we offer a "sheet capacity" rating above. Using this method of size selection may be less accurate, as it was calculated using all 20 lb. bond paper, with no covers and no other paper stocks. The actual sheet capacity will vary depending on what paper stock and covers you are using. For this reason, we recommend you use the stack capacity for a more accurate fit. All of these capacities are approximations.

Plastic coil binding, also called Spiral Binding, is an incredibly durable and flexible way to bind books, making it one of the most popular document binding solutions on the market today.

A binding coil looks like a phone cord, with a continuous plastic spine that spins around into many loops. The coils are spun into several closely spaced holes that are either round or oval shaped, punched along the edge of a book.

They are made of a very flexible plastic material that can bend in all directions, and still retain its original shape. This makes them very durable, and able to withstand heavy handling.

Binding coils come in a large variety of colors and sizes to bind books up to about 440 sheets, or a 1-3/4” thick stack.

To bind with spiral binding, you will need a coil binding machine, the coils themselves, and a pair of cutter crimper pliers. You can also use an electric coil inserter for higher volumes to drastically increase the inserting speed.

Just punch your pages, roll the coil through the holes, and then crimp in the ends. Once bound, your books can lay completely flat and pages can turn a full 360°.

Hey everyone, it’s Mallory from Binding101 and today I am going to answer your FAQs about spiral coil binding. Let’s get started…

In simple terms, “pitch” refers to the hole spacing. 4:1 pitch is the standard for spiral binding coils, which means that there are 4 holes for every inch of binding. So an 11” binding edge would have either 43 or 44 holes, depending on the margin siz...

Hey everyone, it’s Mallory from Binding101 and today I am going to answer your FAQs about spiral coil binding. Let’s get started…

1. What does “pitch” mean?
In simple terms, “pitch” refers to the hole spacing. 4:1 pitch is the standard for spiral binding coils, which means that there are 4 holes for every inch of binding. So an 11” binding edge would have either 43 or 44 holes, depending on the margin size. 5:1 is also available for specialty needs.


2. How do I choose a coil size?
Lay your stack of papers, including covers, on a table and measure the thickness, without pressing the stack down. Add 1/8 of an inch to that measurement and THAt is your recommended binding size. You can also use our handy chart that shows the capacity for each size, which I will link to below.

3. Can I get a bulk discount?
Absolutely! We can usually begin offering discounted prices when you buy 10 or more boxes of coils. Call or email us to see if your order will qualify.

4. What gauge is the coil?
The gauge of the coil –which refers to the thickness of the plastic—starts at 63 and thickens as the coils get larger, topping off at 103 gauge. I will link below to a full chart.

5. What colors are available?
We stock white, black, maroon, red, clear, blue, navy, and forest green binding coils. We also have special order colors that can usually be made in just a few days, including purple, pink, yellow, brown, gold, pearl white, many shades of blue, and more.

6. What is the largest book I can make with coil?
The largest binding coil is 50mm or 2”, which will hold about 440 sheets of copy paper, or about a 1 and ¾ inch thick book.

Binding coils are priced in the middle range of the punch-and-bind solutions, starting at only about 5 cents each.

And reason #5 – They are more fun!

Spiral Binding Coil Supplies 5-Star Expert Review

 

I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
Spiral coil binding is the ideal choice for anyone who needs a durable and flexible binding spine. For users such as those who may travel with their bound documents on sales calls, or go to conferences across the country, coil bindings are a great choice because they are durable enough to withstand handling and packaging without being damaged (but be sure to protect your pages properly with report covers). They might not be the best choice for high-end presentations, though, because some users feel that the plastic is not very professional; but if durability, longevity, and ease-of-use are important to you, then plastic coil binding might just be the best bet.
 

HOW COIL COMPARES TO OTHER BINDINGS:
When talking about punch-and-bind solutions, coil binding is often what people first picture in their minds. In fact, spiral coils are the most popular way to bind presentations and books within a business across the board. But with that in mind, let’s compare some of the functions and features of coils with other popular punch-and-bind options, so you can more accurately gauge which one will be the best choice for your individual needs.

Binding TypeSpiral CoilsWiresCombs
Largest Book You Can Bind* 1 ¾" Thick Stack

1 ⅛" Thick Stack
About 260 Sheets
(With a 1 ¼" Wire)
1 ⅞" Thick Stack

(With a 2” Comb)
Part of the reason why coil bindings can hold more capacity, even compared to larger alternatives, is because they are a continuous loop of plastic. Wires are metal (which doesn’t have the same bounce-back) with loops that protrude into the holes, and combs have prongs or teeth that tuck under the spine. The continuous coil is stronger and can hold more pages, without worry about them falling out.

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT SPIRALS:
As mentioned above, the most notable feature of coils is their durability. But if you’re asking me for my personal favorite thing about them...well, I would have to say it is that they make fun cat toys. Check out my cat, Shadow in this coil video at 0:14 in her moment of fame (supervised play only, IMO). In more seriousness, though, coil bindings are truly a staple in the industry. Preferred by the majority of businesses, they are simple, they look nice, and they’re tough.

I also love the huge variety of colors and the fact that, even the more unique special order colors, can be produced quickly, making them more accessible for any company, even those on a more strict deadline. The many colored coil options make it easy to brand-match them to your logo, your client’s business, or the theme of your specific presentation.
 

THINGS TO CONSIDER:
The reason for choosing options other than binding coils is nearly always the “cheap look” of the plastic. But that refers simple to the fact that the material is plastic, not to the thickness or make of the plastic. In fact, the plastic filament used to make coil bindings is quite thick, and this falls more to a color choice. For example, the black and clear are my favorite stocked colors precisely because of the fact that they look professional (and the pearl white special order; so gorgeous!). Something else we sometimes hear is that the bind process takes too long; customers who need something fast should consider some document binding solutions that don’t require punching at all, such as thermal binding or tape binding. And lastly, some users feel that it is too difficult to roll in the extra long coils through the many holes on a binding edge (usually 43 or 44 holes); those users would benefit from adding an electric coil inserter (preferably one with adjustable rollers) to drastically increase the speed and efficiency, virtually eliminating any stress. And even with all of these “negatives” or reasons why someone might choose a different binding over coil, our spiral binding still have an all 5-star rating, and remain our best selling binding supply.
 

THE BOTTOM LINE:
Spiral binding is awesome. That’s the bottom line!
 

* Approximations. Sheet capacity based on 20# bond copy paper. | ** Although the comb is larger, you will notice the sheet capacity is less. That is because of the weight of the paper sheets; too many pages will be too heavy for the comb prongs to hold. | *** Clearance colors, available in select sizes, while supplies last.
