Enthralled by the ability to easily edit documents and the low cost of the Proclick book binding machines, many users have jumped at the new GBC book binding style. However, these same users often discover that the convenience of the GBC Proclick book binding system also comes with a price. Unfortunately, Proclick binding spines are only available in two colors and two sizes. This presents a unique challenge when companies want to bind reports or documents with a unique color or in a specific size that doesn’t fit well with the offerings of the Proclick book binding systems.

Fortunately, there is a simple solution for companies who wish to use their existing GBC ProClick (or twin loop wire binding) equipment to bind documents using color coil binding spines in many sizes. With a small investment of approximately $30 in a pair of coil crimping pliers and a box of 3:1 pitch color coil, you can now use color coil binding with your Proclick or WireBind book binding machines. You simply punch your document using your ProClick punch and then manually spin the coil binding through the holes onto the book. Use the coil crimpers to crimp the ends of the coil binding and your presentation or proposal is done. You then have over 60 colors and 25 sizes of color coil binding that are available to use with your Proclick Binding Machine.

This also provides a new option for individuals looking for a cheap color coil binding machine. At less than $70, the Proclick P50 book binding machine is over $100 cheaper than the least expensive coil binding machine on the market. Now using 3:1 pitch coil, a new low cost coil binding option is available to individuals who want to do coil binding. Just remember, that you can’t use standard 4:1 pitch color coil binding with the Proclick binding systems. Standard 4:1 pitch coil is designed for use with documents that have 43 or 44 holes and the Proclick binding machines punch 32 holes. Simply order 3:1 pitch coil binding and you are ready to go.
