If your books need to lay flat for a long period of time, Spiral Bound Book printing is the best option for you.
Print on Demand Spiral Bound books have a helical plastic coil that holds the papers together. After trimming and assembling the papers, we thread a plastic spiral through the holes punched along one side of the paper stack. It is standard for the cover to be printed on a heavier stock. The coil is available in many different diameters, making this option ideal for a wide range of page counts and applications.
This binding style is commonly seen in agendas, manuals, notebooks, guides, and any document or publication left open for long periods. The pages can be opened up to 360 degrees, allowing the book to lay flat as well as open fully, which makes them easy to write on. Spiral Coil makes the reading experience easy and comfortable.
The absence of any additional coating on top of the matte surface of uncoated text paper allows one to feel the texture of the paper fibers directly when touched. Although not as glamorous as gloss or silk paper, the matte effect of uncoated paper actually enhances the ease of reading and writing.
Uncoated paper, when used at heavier weights, can feel incredibly high-end and luxurious. With the right design and printing techniques, a matte effect can be created that many people prefer over glossy finishes. Additionally, uncoated paper is ideal for writing on.
For booklet covers, brochures, or postcards that require filling out by hand, the smooth finish of 100 lb. Uncoated Cover is a great option. However, it's important to note that bright colors and images may appear slightly muted on uncoated paper, so it's best suited for light coverage artwork.
Gloss text paper has a special coating that reflects light, which enhances the vibrancy and vividness of bright colors and bold patterns. This type of paper is particularly suitable for designs with full-color photographs, bright solids, or attention-grabbing graphics.
While gloss text paper is excellent at making your designs stand out, it may not be the best option if you need to include a lot of text. The shiny surface can sometimes make it challenging to read pages with small print. However, if you're creating a promotional piece that needs to make a statement, such as a catalog insert or poster, gloss paper is the way to go.
For cover pages, 100lb Gloss Cover stock is an excellent choice. Its glossy finish is perfect for booklets and catalogs, especially for bold patterns and bright colors.
Looking for a paper stock that falls between the high-shine of glossy and the matte? Consider Silk Text Paper. This type of paper boasts a subtle sheen that enhances the vibrancy of colors, without the intense glare of full gloss. It also has a luxurious feel that's noticeably soft and smooth to the touch.
Silk finish is highly versatile, making it an ideal choice for designs that feature a lot of text. It provides a great base for crisp, clear typography. Unlike glossy paper, you can actually write on silk finish, although it's not as easy as uncoated paper.
For a heavy, sturdy feel with a silky matte finish of covers, choose the 100 lb. Silk Cover. It's perfect for promotional items like catalogs, booklets, and postcards.

The paper's standout feature is its smooth, consistent surface, which guarantees exceptional print reproduction with every use. This versatile paper is ideal for printing textbooks, sketchbooks, catalogs, bulletins, financial documents, and manuals, making it a top choice for a wide range of printing applications.
Although the finishing options for the book cover are limited to the outside, they can still have a significant impact on the book's appearance and durability.
One popular choice is lamination, which enhances the cover's resistance to tearing, water damage, and general wear and tear. Say goodbye to creases, stains, and fading due to sun exposure! A matte lamination provides a refined and sophisticated finish with a natural appearance, while a velvet finish offers a soft and flexible texture that lightens colors and reduces contrast.
A gloss lamination, on the other hand, provides a more crisp and sharp appearance to text and images. For an even more impressive effect, you can opt for gloss UV, which delivers a high-gloss finish that makes high-contrast images and photographs truly stand out.
Alternatively, AQ coating is an eco-friendly, water-based, glossy coating that offers additional protection and glossiness to the cover. It also allows for easy writing with a ballpoint pen.
