Create Your Own Spiral Notebook

Spiral Binding SuppliesDo you want to create your own spiral notebook? It can be done, and at an affordable price. The type of binding that is used with spiral notebooks is what we call coil binding (aka spiral binding). The only difference between traditional spiral notebooks and what our coil binding machines can do is the coil element itself.

Our coil binding machines use colored PVC coils, versus the metal coils used in spiral notebooks. The hole patterns are still the same, pages still turn the same and sheets can be torn out the same way as will a spiral notebook. The hole pattern used with a spiral notebook is usually a 4:1 pitch (four holes per inch). This makes the pages easier to tear out for note taking purposes versus a 5:1 pitch (five holes per inch).

So why is PVC coil better than metal coil? Metal coils bend easily. Very easily. This may be from stacking a book on the metal coil or placing the notebook in a backpack. PVC plastic coils do not bend and can take a lot of abuse without showing any wear.

Coil / Spiral Binding MachinesYou can actually buy lined paper at a paper store for creating your own spiral notebook. Simply punch holes in the lined paper, put chipboard on the back and a sheet of card stock on the front. The end result looks great and the coil notebook can then be taken to school, used for taking notes and much more.

Another big advantage of using PVC plastic coils over metal coils is the color. Metal coils are usually nickel or chrome in color. PVC plastic coils are available in an assortment of different colors. This means you can create a spiral notebook with a pink, blue, red or black coil .The colors are endless.
