Wire and Comb binding design is quiet straight forward. The only consideration for wire and comb binding is that approximately 8-9mm on the binding edge will be whole punched to attach the wires or plastic combs. Therefore, any content which you don’t want to lose should be kept away from the binding edge.

Wire and Comb Binding Internal Page Margins
Page margins for wire and comb binding are not required for structural purposes, aside from the binding margin which requires an area for punching which was explained above. Page margins are purely a design component and it is entirely up to you as to how you would like your book to look.
Wire and Comb Binding Cover design
Wire and Comb binding covers must be supplied as individual pages with 3mm external bleed on all sides.
