BachelorPrint produces the spiral binding in three steps. In the first step, all pages of your paper plus the front page and the back page in a chosen color will be punched. The different spiral binding options (metal or plastic) need different punching holes. In the second step, the punched pages will be surrounded by the front and back page. In the third and last steps, the spiral is inserted in the stamped holes and closed. Once an order is put through the online print shop, this process can be completed within 24-72 hours.
Spiral binding is mainly used for smaller academic papers due to its simplicity. For more important papers, other bindings are more suitable. Using the 3D configurator, you can test how your academic paper will look with each binding in the online print shop.

The spiral binding is offered in seven different sizes, based on the number of pages. The spiral diameters’ range varies from 6 mm to 22 mm. The maximum number of pages is also based on the weight of the paper used or the purpose of the academic work.
You can fit more sheets of 100 g/m² paper into spiral binding than you can 120 g/m² paper. If you need to bind more than 300 pages with wire binding, we would recommend double-sided printing. That way, up to 600 printed pages, or 300 pages, fit into our wire binding. For more information about paper for printing, head over to our blog post ‘Paper for Thesis Printing and Binding‘.
