While some book binding methods can be costly, there is great value to be found in the professional, yet inexpensive spiral-bound book. Spiral-bound printing is ideal for many applications when you need something quick and affordable, as well as for short-term and non-retail books.
The pages are printed on high-quality paper using digital printing technology, creating a professional finish from front to back. Then, they are stacked and hole punched, and a spiral (or coil) is inserted into the holes to keep the book together.
Spiral books can lay flat and even fold over on themselves and are an attractive, long-lasting choice for business, home use, and even in education.
Read on to learn more about the many uses for this process and how you can get your book printed quicker and easier than you think.
When To Use Professional Spiral Bound Book Printing
If you need an affordable printing solution that can be customized for various uses, spiral-bound book printing could be just what you are looking for. Take a look at a few of our most popular spiral printing services below to see why so many people rely on us for their printing and binding needs.
Employee handbooks are a must when it comes to having a “hard copy.” Those stapled packets and printed “manuals” aren’t really giving anyone the sense that your company is serious about its rules. Something as simple as upgrading to a spiral-bound manual with a coated cover can give your reputation a serious boost. Not only does it look more professional, but with the spiral binding, we can create custom tear-out pages for signatures and other unique features.
Journals, fitness workbooks, and self-help workbooks are also popular genres that are chosen for spiral binding. The binding is affordable and durable, and it allows people to remove pages if they desire. Plus, spiral binding makes it easy to flip completely open on itself or lay it flat, giving your user versatile options.
At Print Bind Ship, we provide full color, high-resolution printing for recipe books of all kinds. This is ideal for the modern recipe book that wants to offer a realistic example with the photos included with the recipes. Recipe books are more popular than ever. So, keeping them affordable and still durable, spiral binding is a good way to go.
Creating a unique directory for your subdivision, private club or company is a great way to keep people in touch with each while providing useful information. A printed directory can also incorporate technology like QR codes for social calendars, websites, and more. With spiral-bound printing, you can create an affordable and professional product whether it has 10 pages or 50.
Spiral binding is another inexpensive, yet durable choice for children’s books. This market relies on a unique level of durability. Even if you can’t afford full hardcover printing, you can still create some durable products. Just let us print and bind your children’s stories into a spiral-bound book!
Spiral Bound Book Sizes & Colors
Although standard sizing options for our spiral-bound books, they can be customized in just about any size. Our most common sizes for spiral bound printing include:
- 8.5 x 11 inches

As far as colors go, we can print your spiral-bound book in any color – or as many colors – as you desire. Whether you just need your company logo in color or you want an entire workbook journal with full-color printing, it can be arranged.
