Plastic binding: black plastic spirals, 21 rings, various diameters, suitable for up to 270 sheets (largest ring diameter 28 mm), – stable and long-lasting, – the document lies flat, but cannot be turned over (tie-bar at the rear), – spiral may be opened easily again on the binding machine, e.g. for amendments, – very suitable for shipment.


Wire binding: silver-coloured or black wiring, 23 rings, suitable for documents up to 300 sheets (largest ring diameter 32mm), – stable and professional, – document can be turned over 360°, suitable for copying – changes in the bound document are difficult since subsequent opening of the spiral is not possible.


Thermal binding: the black flax strip is bonded with the document as a spine in a single operation. Suitable for bindings up to 350 sheets – very fast binding – flat –  compact, suitable for shipment – is not as stable as plastic binding or wire binding – not suitable for copying, since the document is no longer entirely flat.
