Interior pages are printed digitally in black and white or color. Our most popular paper is 60# white Lynx Opaque Offset. Other uncoated and coated interior paper stocks and colors are also available for spiral bound books. Check out the Quote Generator for all of our standard options or Contact Us to discuss more custom options.
We print all covers in digital full color. Our most common cover stock for softcover books is white Tango 12 point C1S, a heavy-weight stock that is coated on one side. We also offer 80# white Lynx Opaque Cover and 80# natural Cougar Opaque Cover. After printing, covers are finished with UV coating or laminated with either gloss or soft-touch matte film for added protection and quality.
Covers are finished with UV coating or lamination to ensure the highest level of quality and protection. We offer two lamination finishes, gloss and soft-touch matte. Our gloss is a shiny finish that gives a smooth look to the cover. Our soft-touch matte finish gives more of a flat visual to the cover and offers a textured feel as well.
In addition to plastic coils, we also offer wire-o binding as an option for custom spiral book orders. Also known as twin-loop or double-loop binding, wire-o is a metal binding style that provides extra support, giving your book a professional, polished look. Wire-O usually costs about 15¢ more per spiral bound book. Contact Us to add wire-o to your spiral bound book order.
This binding uses a plastic coil. Colors below are approximate and may appear different on your final books.
We also offer a variety of custom spiral bound options including clear covers, inside cover printing, fold-outs and more! Contact Us to discuss the right custom options for you.
