Wire-O Binding

Wire-O BookWire-O or Mechanical Binding is an economic and attractive binding solution. At Riverside Binding, we offer a variety of Mechanical Binding options to keep you ahead of the competition.

Wire-O binding (also known as “double loop” binding) is produced using pre-formed wire loops that are bound in pairs down the spine of a book. Wire-O-bound books do more than just lay flat; they can be folded 360 degrees for single-hand use.


Wire-O detailWire-O binding is attractive, sturdy and available in more than a dozen colors, including PMS matched tones. Like all mechanical binding styles, Wire-O binding can be produced with multiple stock weights and sizes. Design options such as foldouts, pockets, index tabs and die cuts can be easily incorporated. Semi- and fully-concealed cover options make Wire-O binding even more versatile and attractive.

Plastic Comb
Plastic comb binding utilizes a hard “comb” binding element to hold pages together. Plastic comb-bound books will lay flat, and can include a wide range of design options. One advantage of plastic comb binding is that the spine can be printed for easy identification while on a shelf.

Plastic Spiral
Plastic spiral binding involves coiling a length of plastic binding material along the spine of a book. Like other mechanical binding styles, plastic spiral binding lays flat and is available in more than a dozen standard colors and PMS-matched tones.



Many people think of Wire-O as the Cadillac of mechanical binding. It is an elegant, durable and versatile binding style that has endured for decades, yet never looks dated. Wire-O binding is a great solution for books that need to lie flat.

Since Wire-O binding opens without a "step up", it is ideal for booklets with crossover images. This freedom of design gives you more room to place larger images that span across two pages. Additionally, Wire-O binding can be cased in, allowing for spine printing and a more durable cover option.

Wire-O binding has become the standard for cookbooks. Wire-O can open at 360º and is ideal for single hand use, giving the end-user freedom of readily available information while performing multiple cooking tasks.
