Spiral-bound books are useful for all types of activities including taking notes, doodling and recording your hopes and dreams. If designed well, they also can make a great gift. Making your own spiral-bound book online allows you to use your creative energies, talents and skills to design something the way you want it. Spiral-bound books have spiral spines that allow them to be folded back fully and lie flat.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Brainstorm design ideas. Think about the appearance of the cover as well as the size of the book. The cover can consist of a photo or a plain coloured surface. Smaller books can fit into a pocket book and be convenient to carry around; a larger book may be good for classroom note-taking.

  2. 2

    Determine the number and colour of lines that will fill each page. You can choose unlined or design filled pages. The more pages you include, the more the book will cost. Colour-filled books cost more to make than black and white.

  3. 3

    Search online for a print-on-demand (POD) company that fits your design requirements. POD is a term used for the digital printing technology that allows a complete book to be printed and bound in minutes. POD companies can also help you with designing your book. Transactions between you and the POD company take place online. Once you upload your book to their system the company will print out and ship the book to you. Upload and production fees vary.
