PLASTIC COIL: A Sleek Modern Look
Plastic coil (a.k.a. “plastic spiral”) is a popular binding method for children’s books, calendars and computer manuals.
- Like Wire-O, plastic coil elements are available in a wide variety of colors and sizes
- Unlike Wire-O, the coil elements will spring back to their original shape, even if stepped on
- Plastic coil production is a semi-automatic process; long runs usually aren’t economical
- Since plastic coil bound pages step-up when opened, crossover images should be avoided
