Spiral Bound Book Printing that’s Affordable

One of the biggest cost factors when producing spiral bound book printing is printing pages in full color. Most spiral bound printers, make you either print the whole book in color or black and white. At, DiggyPOD we print all of our covers in full color and then laminate the covers to help protect the spiral bound book.

You can also print the inside pages in full color, or mix and match what pages you want to print in color and black and white. By only printing certain pages in full color and the rest of the inside pages in black and white is a huge cost savings.

Coil Bound Book Printing Advantages

spiral bound printingThe biggest advantage to printing a spiral bound book is they lay flat. Unlike a traditional paperback book binding that will tend to close and not lay flat. When the book lays flat, you don’t have to worry about losing your spot in the book because it closed on you.

Coil binding is great for these type of books:

  • Cookbooks
  • Training Manuals
  • Employee Manuals
  • Membership Directories
  • User Manuals
  • Calendars
  • Product Catalogs

File Prep and Specifications for Spiral Binding

At DiggyPOD we need a print ready PDF file with all the fonts embedded. You can learn more about creating a PDF file by watching our video tutorials on file preparation. We also recommend that the inside margin be a minimum of a ½”, so your type does not get cut off when we punch the holes in the paper for the coil. You will also want to make sure the outside, top and bottom margins are also a ½” for coil bound books. We do not charge extra for bleeds.

We use black coils, but if you want a colored color, feel free to give us a call, and we will see if the color is available. Color coils usually add about $30.00 to the overall cost and do take a few days to come in.
