What colors do coil bindings come in?

Choose from 45 different color selections. See our Color chart.


Oval Holes vs. Round Holes in coil binding

The oval hole pattern uses a 4:1 pitch (0.248") versus the standard round hole 4:1 pitch (0.250") 
Most coil binding machines are made with round hole punches. The oval hole pattern pitch is designed to give you 44 evenly-centered holes on an 11" sheet, and make it easier for pages to turn and the additional height of the oval makes it easier to insert the coils.  The hole pattern is compatible with standard 4:1 pitch coils and can increase productivity by as much as 40%.   


Which is the best pitch for coil binding?

 A 4:1 pitch hole pattern is the most widely used as you are able to bind more sheets of paper; the 5:1 pitch hole pattern has a "tighter" look and works well for thinner books and presentations.


How should you store 36" length coil bindings?

36" coils that are stored in boxes should be placed horizontally on shelves or in storage areas to ensure they will lie flat and remain straight.


What does the pitch mean in coil or wire bindings? (2:1, 3:1, 4:1 and 5:1)

Pitch refers to the number of holes per inch. 


Can you use 4:1 and 5:1 coils on the same machine?

No, they are not interchangeable.  They need different spaced punched die sets. See different Hole Patterns

The 4:1 hole pattern will bind about 230 total pages because the holes are spaced farther apart.
The 5:1 hole pattern will bind about 150 total pages.
