Wire-O Binding

  • Allow sufficient margin on the bind edge so that copy does not get punched through. For books that bulk less than 1/2”, copy needs to be placed a minimum of 3/8” away from the spine. Books bulking 1/2” or more require that the copy be placed 1/2” away from the spine.

  • If you slip-sheet your job, make certain the slip-sheets are the same size as the job.

  • If the covers are the same size as the text, save time and money by gathering them with your text which also eliminates the need for slip-sheets.
