Spiral bound catalogs are one of our most popular products. Spiral binding offers a durable and clean look with the ability to bind more pages together then any other binding method.
For added durability on small and large catalogs alike, add a heaver cover, clear cover and vinyl back, or both to get the most resilient and best looking product. To give your catalog that extra sense of professionalism, be sure to pick a spiral color that will match your covers.
Spiral Catalogs: How They're Made
Watch a short video on how we assemble spiral catalogs:
For spiral bound catalogs, the binding will go into the page approximately .28". To make sure you don't have any content that goes into or is too close to the binding, we recommend at least a .5" binding margin. If you are worried how the margins on your catalog will look, we recommend ordering a hard copy proof first before we print all of your catalogs.
If you have page numbers in your file and are printing double sided, it is recommended to have alternating page numbers so they stay on the outer edges of the catalog. If you have your page numbers all on the left or right side of your pages, then half of the page numbers will be in near the binding of the catalog making it hard to navigate. For a professional look when printing double sided, alternate the location of the page numbers.
