Product Overview

Wiro binding (also known as wire binding, which is simlilar to spiral or coil binding) involves gathering pages together, punching holes along their side and holding them together with a metal wire spine. When the pages are opened they either lie flat or can fold fully back around, making wiro binding ideal for annual reports, recipe books, manuals and other reference material.  It’s also suitable for between 4 and 180 leaves  - that’s up to 360 printed sides.

Choose wiro binding on the top or left-hand side, and landscape or portrait orientation. You can select from silk, gloss or uncoated paper (with recycled options for both silk and uncoated), or from our broad range of luxury papers. You can opt to laminate your cover, and for extra strength and durability, you can choose to add protective clear acetate covers.

We can provide wiro bound documents in sizes A3, A4, A5, 1/3 A4 and 210mm x 210mm square. A3 sizes can only be bound on the short edge. We only use black coloured wires on all products. 

We know what you’re thinking. These high quality products are (wiro) bound to have high delivery costs. Well, that’s where you’re wrong! In fact, when order values exceed €90 you can qualify for free delivery to anywhere in Ireland. And when we say anywhere, we mean it. Dublin, Cork, Galway, the list goes on. One thing's for certain when you order through DigitalPrintingIreland - you will get high quality wiro bound documents delivered fast to your exact location. Sound good? Order, today!

Paper Options

Silk 
Silk coated paper has a smooth feel with a discreet surface sheen. It offers excellent ink to paper contrast, and printed colours appear distinct and clear. A recycled option is available. (115gsm – 350gsm)

Gloss
Gloss coated paper has a shiny surface and very smooth finish. Colour is sharp and stands out well. Ink dries quickly and the need for lamination is reduced. (115gsm – 350gsm)

Premium uncoated 
Our premium uncoated paper is more absorbent than coated paper. Printed inks appear flatter due to this absorbency, and the paper has a soft finish. A recycled option is available. (100gsm – 350gsm)

Choose from:

- Acquerello (160gsm-280gsm)

Finishes

Matt lamination gives a soft, contemporary effect. Adding gloss lamination gives a higher quality shine finish than printing on gloss card or paper alone. 
Lamination is most useful with solid colours or images to enhance their vibrancy or where you want to protect your printed documents. 

Lamination is not available on luxury papers.

There is no best seller for wiro-bound books as the page content ordered varies greatly, but we have noticed that nearly all our clients opt for protective clear acetate covers. Worth considering?
