What Is Wire-o/Coil Binding. 

When producing a coil bound book the inside book pages are sandwiched between two sheets of card (a front and back cover). Holes are then punched in to the spine edge of the book, before a plastic/wire-o/metal coil is threaded and twisted through the holes to form the binding.

Why Print Your Books Using Wire-o/Coil Binding

  • Coil binding is a popular binding method for functional books. Books that you plan on using regularly, and opening and closing frequently.
  • Recipe books, annual reports, training manuals, reference books, and diaries all work brilliantly with coil binding.
  • The main advantage of coil binding is that the books can be opened 360 degrees and lay flat on a surface.
  • Sizes
  • Colour
  • Pages
  • Design


We can print and bind Wire-o/Coil books in a range of sizes; A6, A5, A4, Royal or a custom size of your choice.

The size you choose will depend largely on what your book is. Most planners are printed A5, but workbooks, reference guides and training manuals are often better in A4.

Our instant price calculator is able to work out the cost of printing your softback book in any of the regular sizes. If you would like a quote for a custom size, get in touch with a member of the team on (01733) 898 102 or email info@bookprintinguk.com.

Why Print Your Coil Bound Book with BookPrintingUK?

1. We've Been Printing Books For Over 20 Years

We are a proud member of the Bonacia family who have been printing paperback books for more than 20 years.

We have a team of knowledgeable account managers, talented designers, and experienced production staff. Add to that our state-of-the-art printers and you find yourself in pretty good company.

2. We Guarantee Outstanding Quality

And if it’s good enough for us, it’s good enough for most people.

We have a stringent quality control process at every stage of the journey. Every single person that works on your book in any capacity, be it a designer, a print manager or a binder, is constantly assessing and reviewing your book to ensure that it’s perfect.

If anyone sees any mistake in the printing and binding of your book, they will highlight it and fix it even if that means we have to start all over again.

3. We Keep Our Costs Down

Two of our main priorities are to simplify the process of printing a book, and to ensure that we are providing our service at a fair price.

We do everything we can to make our processes more efficient, as doing so saves you time and money. For example, we offer our Free File Assessment Service. This ensures that your files will print without issue, reduces design time and minimises print errors, making you happy, and saving us time and therefore money. Processes like this mean that we can keep the cost of printing low.

Use our online calculator to get an instant quote. We usually find that we are a similar price or cheaper than most print companies, but if you get a cheaper quote elsewhere let us know and we will see if there is anything we can do.

4. You Don't Have To Feel Guilty About Printing On Our Paper

As a printer who uses a lot of paper, we take our environmental responsibility very seriously.

All of the paper we use is FSC credited, which means that it has been sourced responsibly by organisations who ensure that they are re-planting trees to replace those that they use.

If you’re interested, you can find out more about FSC accredited paper here.

5. People Who Use Our Service Tend To Love Us!

We don’t want to seem arrogant, but we think we are pretty good at what we do. And our customers seem to agree.

Putting our innate British modesty aside for a moment, we work very hard to ensure that the entire process of printing with us is an enjoyable one, and that we provide amazing quality printed books at an exceptional price. So when we are told that we’re doing a good job we like to shout about it.

You can see all of our independent reviews on our Trust Pilot page. Here are a few of the most recent:

As an apprehensive cartoonist who chose BPUK from a long list of book printers on google a complicated job which entailed the printing and coil-binding in hardback of 80 pages of artwork and text went as smoothly as I could have hoped expertly managed from start to finish by Giulia resulting in a very happy client of my own.
