Multi Bookbinding - A tradition of excellence

Wire-O binding

For more than 25 years, Multi-Bookbinding has continuously worked on improving our offering of bindery services.

In June 2014, Multi-Bookbinding announced the acquisition of the assets of Alternative service de reliure (Alternative Binders) from Quebec City. Thanks to this acquistion, Multi-
Bookbinding increased our service offering in a strategic and advantageous way for our clients. Alternative service de reliure specialized in perfect binding and mechanical binding (wire-o binding), calenders and books. These diverse offerings, combined with those of Multi-Bookbinding, now give our company the most complete offerings in the industry. These new mechanical binding services wire-o align perfectly with our company’s mission. Many different products require hardcovers, perfect binding, laminated covers, folding and gluing or hot stamping; some of these services have already been offered by Multi-Bookbinding for several years.

The wire-o binding choice of colours is black, white, green, red, blue, silver, bronze and pewter.


The greatest advantage with mechanical binding is the ability for the documents to open flat and their 360° rotation, ideal for reference manuals and other documents that will be consulted frequently. This option also allows a combination of different substrates (paper, board, plastic, diecut pieces, folded pieces, etc.), without having to take into account grain direction during imposition.

Wire-O offers a superior and luxurious appearance with its metallic double-ring formation, allowing the pages to remain aligned when opening the document. This type of binding can be enhanced with the addition of round corners and detachable corners (perforated at a 45° angle), frequently used in the production of agendas. The binding can be completely visible, partially exposed on the back, or partially exposed on the spine. This binding is used for such classic products as desk calendars and wall calendars.
