Bound for Success

Print Ready delivers a professional binding service in Dublin and across the island of Ireland. We house state of the art binding machines, offering first class quality at competitive prices. Binding gives your documents a professional finish. Binding can also protect your documents and reports from wear and tear. Loose sheets and papers inevitably get lost and damaged. Binding and laminating can preserve your documents keeping them safe for years to come.

Binding presentations and submissions creates a great first impression. Our affordable rates, quick turnarounds and nationwide delivery makes Print Ready your preferred binding company of choice.

Don’t underestimate how impactful a well presented document can be!

We provide 3 types of binding for your documents:

Wire Binding / Spiral Binding

Wire binding also known as spiral or wiro binding involves punching holes along the side and fastening them together using a metal wire strip. Wire binding is our most popular commercial binding method. Wire binding allows documents to open flat on a desk and allows for a full 360 degree rotation of your sheets. Wire binding or Wiro Binding is stylish and professional.

It is ideal for any sales or marketing material, training manuals, company reports and much more. Wire binding is robust and hard wearing. We bind using a clear plastic front cover and a coloured back cardboard cover.

  • Wire bind along the long edge or short edge
  • Laminate your cover for extra strength
  • Wire bind various sized documents (A6, A5, A4, A3)
  • Ideal for calendars
  • Suitable for presentation documents, research findings or reports.

Thermal Binding / Soft Binding

Thermal binding uses heat and glue to bind your documents. A specialised Fastback glue strip is heated and applied to the spine of your sheets. This then creates a secure bond with the edges of the book. Thermal binding offers a fast, and strong binding option for large quantities and always looks professional and stylish.

Thermal bound documents splay when opened and will not lie flat unlike wire bound books. Thermal binding comes with a clear plastic front cover and a coloured cardboard back cover unless otherwise stated.

  • No hole punching required
  • Ideal for large quantity orders
  • Suitable for bulky documents with a lot of pages
  • Can be filed away on a shelf or in a cabinet neatly
  • Ideal for dissertations/theses, final year reports, research documents, catalogues.
