If you have made very many scrapbooks, you know how costly albums can be to purchase. This cost is all too apparent if you are making scrapbooks that are designed to be given away as gifts or if you are one of those prolific scrapbookers with dozens or even hundreds of scrapbooks. However, there is an alternative to expensive albums when binding your scrapbooks. You can use spiral coil (also called color coil).

One of the best things about spiral coil is that it is available in almost any length and color imaginable. Currently, spiral coil is available in more than 64 stock colors.

Using the different colors available on the market, you can give almost any scrapbook its own customized appearance.

Spiral Coil also lends itself extremely well to scrapbooking since you can buy coils in almost any size or length imaginable. Color coil is available in sizes as small as 6mm (1/4") and as large as 50mm (2") however it works best in sizes up to 1" (25mm). Coil can also be ordered in almost any length up to 36" long and can be easily cut to the correct length if needed. This flexibility makes it possible to bind almost any size of scrapbook including 12" x 12", 8" x 8" and 8.5" x 11" albums.

Traditionally, the equipment to punch holes for spiral coil binding has been too expensive for the home market. However, there are now a few different coil binding machines that are affordable for doing scrapbooking and creating memory books. For 11" x 8.5" albumsPsychology Articles, GBC (General Binding Corporation) recently introduced a new binding punch called the ProClick P50. The ProClick P50 costs about $60 and can be used in conjunction with 3:1 pitch spiral coil for an extremely economical coil binding solution.
