How do I know which size wire to use when binding books using my new Cinch binding machine? Also, is there a difference between using the spiral style and the type that needs to be "cinched" closed??

The size depends on how thick your book will be. If you have a few items you're going to "cinch" together, you won't need a very wide binding. If you have a lot of pages and dimension, you'll need a thicker binding. The binding spiral and the binding wire really boil down to personal preference. The spirals only come in the 1" width, while the wires come in varying widths. Hope this helps!
