Gateway PublishingOur History

Our History
PLASTIKOIL® originated as an alternative binding option for one of Gateway Bookbinding Systems sister companies. In the 1960's, they were binding all of their publications at that time with comb binding. The company was looking for an alternative - something fresh, something new - in keeping with their progressive thinking. They came upon a very small, local manufacturer of this exciting, new continuous plastic spiral type of binding. Coil bound books could lay flat, could open a full 360 degrees, and looked great! Gateway made the change to plastic spiral and never looked back!

Gateway Bookbinding, taking the basic coil forming equipment and the plastic formulas originally used, have evolved this exciting plastic binding product into PLASTIKOIL® - a now internationally recognized binding system that has become one of the most popular mechanical binding choices for today's books and printed projects.

Gateway Bookbinding makes it their priority to offer the most comprehensive product and equipment line on the market, with the objective of enabling all potential levels of the industry to utilize the product with maximum productivity. As a two-time award winner of the Binding Industries Association Feingold Award for Innovative Excellence, our product and equipment designs and concepts have revolutionized the plastic spiral binding industry. Gateway also enjoys the unique advantage of utilizing their own on-site trade bindery as a live test site for all product enhancements and equipment developments. Our Research and Development team continue to work on enhancing the coil, the manufacturing, and the coil insertion process.
