Plastic Comb binding has been one of the most popular types of bindings for many years, and for good reason. It is very versatile and allows you to bind any book from 3/16" up to 2" wide. If you have a comb punch now, you can also bind with 19-loop wire by purchasing one of our wire closers. Plastic combs are available in wide variety of lengths and colors. Automated Book Binding can imprint your company name, logo, or both on your plastic combs. We can also screen them to match any color!

Binding Process
#1: Punch your paper. Remember to only punch as many sheets as your machine is rated to handle.

#2: Place your comb on the comb spreader. If your machine has a comb spreader adjusting knob, adjust to the diameter of the comb being used. Push or pull your spreader handle to open the comb.

#3: Lay your pages on the comb so that the rings feed into the punched holes.

#4: Pull or push your spreader handle so that comb closes.

Wire Binding

19 loop wire is referred to as 9/16" because there is 9/16" spacing between the punched holes. It is available in 3/16" to 9/16" increments, and will not bind books over 9/16" thick. DescriptionThere are three types of wire binding: 9/16" (19 loop), 2:1, & 3:1. This is the same punch configuration as plastic comb bind.
