Wire Binding is a form of binding in which all pages are punched and bound using wire coils.  At CMYK Colour Online Pty Ltd we offer an extensive range of wire bound calendars in various sizes and orientations.

When ordering calendars, it is important to ensure that all artwork is setup correctly.  To assist you in doing this we have included helpfull information, images, diagrams and links to our guideline templates on the page below:

When creating artwork for wire bound calendars, we always recomend that our guideline templates be used.  Guideline templates can be found by clicking here and navigating to the item you require.  Before using our templates, please always read the “read me” file first.  

 

Artwork tips and specifications:

 

  • To allow for hole punching and binding, we require a minimum of 10mm internal bleed on all page edges.  This means all text/important graphics must be kept a minimum of 10mm from the trim edge of your calendar (click diagram below to enlarge).

    Internal Bleed Explained Diagram


  • For wire bound calendars, we require 3mm of external bleed on all artwork.  External bleed is the area extending past the trim line, it allows for a small amount of movement that may occur when your order is being cut to size (click diagram below to enlarge).

  • Artwork should always be supplied as a 1-Up multiple page file (preferably a press ready PDF file) with the front cover as page one, and the back cover as the last page. 
    For a 26 page page calendar, this should be one file with 26 pages – NOT as 26 separate files.


    Please do not supply artwork as the following:

    • Multi-page spreads
    • Pages imposed 2-Up
    • Separate files for each individual page

  • Please ensure that the artwork is the correct page size.
    For example, if you have ordered an A3 calendar, please do not supply A4 sized artwork.

  • In your artwork, the front cover should be the first page and the back cover should be the last page.

  • Please ensure that your artwork has the correct number of pages.
    When ordering a 26 page calendar, your supplied artwork needs to have exactly 26 pages. If your design has less than 26 pages please add blank pages to make up the 26 page total.
