Several years ago I got a Paper Parachute catalog that had the most wonderful spiral coil binding… it looked so neat and even…so professional… I loved the way it folded flat, even when I turned the pages back. I wanted to bind things that way!  I researched the machines that were capable of coil binding at the time and discovered that they cost from $600 to $1,000!  Ouch.

Later I bought a comb and wire binding machine, which was handy, but I still had that spiral coil on my mind.

After searching for several years, I  finally found an affordable and sturdy coil binding punch!  This punch makes beautifully clean round holes, four to an inch, for making spiral-bound calendars, journals, scrapbooks, address books, catalogs, cookbooks, and anything you'd like to bind!

It is so easy to use, I made a 20-page book within minutes of unpacking my new coil punch! I hadn't even read the instructions yet!  

After starting the coil through the first hole, all you have to do is TWIRL the coil and it automatically turns through the next holes until the book is done.  Then just trim the ends with scissors or finishing pliers and tighten the final coil, and your book is complete!

The RubiCoil will punch four tiny holes per inch on anything from the tiniest necklace books up to large documents.  It will punch six to eight pages of light-weight paper at a time and it will also punch three to four sheets of cardstock, as well as two sheets of lightweight cardboard at a time for book covers!  To make the holes align perfectly, all you have to do is position the paper or cardstock against the paper guide on the left side of the punch.  It makes PERFECT books!

The punch is easy to use, portable, and requires no electricity. The RubiCoil has a one-year warranty.

The RubiCoil machine is $179 plus shipping from the California warehouse. Click here to order plastic spiral coils.

Plan to make coil-bound books or journals?  
The Rubi-Coil is ideal for these projects -- with the Rubi-Coil,
you can punch 6 to 8 pages at a time with ease, or 10 sheets of 20# bond paper at a time.

This is the machine we sell to teachers and instructors, rubber stamp stores and scrapbook stores, artists who make thick journals, and companies that use spiral coil to bind their catalogs.

The RubiCoil machine is a heavier, desktop coil punch, sturdier and more powerful than the lightweight stainless steel punches.  It has an adjustable paper guide for more control in aligning the paper, and the hole pattern is printed in the white area where the paper goes into the machine, so you can see exactly where each hole will appear on your paper.  The RubiCoil punches 6 to 8 pages of text-weight paper at once, or 3 to 4 pieces of card stock, depending on the weight of the card stock. (The box says it will punch 10 sheets of 20# bond paper, but most of us don't use paper that thin.)  This machine will punch chipboard but it will not punch matboard. To make matboard covers, you can punch a template with the RubiCoil, then use the template as a guide for drilling individual holes with the Japanese Book Drill.

The RubiCoil machine is $179 plus shipping.  The RubiCoil machines is shipped from the West Coast warehouse.  Coils and all other products are shipped from Atlanta, Georgia.

Coil Mac

If you want to punch mat board covers occasionally, you can use the Japanese book drill to drill the holes one at a time, using a template.

If you want to punch mat board often, you might consider the Coil Mac.  The Coil Mac is larger and heavier than the RubiCoil, and punches one piece of mat board at time with ease.
