How to supply artwork for Wire Binding

When creating your artwork, we highly recommend using our guideline templates. Guideline templates can be found by clicking here . Before using our templates, please ensure you read the “read me” file first.

When creating your artwork, please take into account:

Wire Binding Bleed

(Click to enlarge)

It is not possible to have bleed (printing right to the edge of the page) with our standard wire bound books. As bleed is not possible, artwork must be supplied:

  • At the exact finished size (e.g. A4 = 210 x 297mm)
  • All design elements must be kept at least 10mm inside the edge of the page on each page.
Wire Binding Even & Odd Pages

(Click to enlarge)

Please note, that after a book is bound, even numbered pages will always be on the left hand side, and odd numbered pages will always be on the right hand side of a spread.

If you require certain pages (headings, menus, diagrams etc) to be on a specific side of your book, please ensure you take this into account when designing your artwork. B
efore approving a proof for approval, we also always recommend you carefully check to make sure important pages are placed on the correct side (even or odd).
