Binding wires (O-wires)
for The Cinch and the Bind-it-All
SPECIAL: All blue binding wires on sale $5 to $6 off!
Binding wires are designed to bind 11 inches of spine, with a 2:1 pitch. A 2:1 pitch means that the wires are made to be used with a hole-punch pattern of 2 holes per inch. Pitch is important, because if the pitch of the wire does not match the pitch of the holes, then the wire will not fit well in the book. Diameters below refer to the size of the wire when closed around the book.
For 12" projects, you will center the holes. leaving 1/2" of un-punched space at the top and bottom of the project.
The wire we carry is the standard length for binding 11" spines and is packaged in the standard 50-piece boxes. Because we sell the standard length wire in its original, standard packaging, it costs much less than it would cost in special-order lengths or in custom, smaller-quantity packaging.
We buy our binding wires -- by the pallet -- from major manufacturers that supply binding wires to other commercial enterprises. These are the same wires used to make the wire-bound books that are available on the commercial market -- the same binding wires used to manufacture the wire-bound books sold in stationery stores and scrapbook stores.
Important: Binding wires and plastic spiral coils are NOT interchangeable. These metal wires are designed for use with wire binding machines that punch 2 holes per inch -- such as the The Cinch from We R Memory Keepers, the Zutter Bind-it-All and the Akiles OffiWire machine. If you have a RubiCoil machine or other plastic spiral coil binding machine, these metal binding wires are not compatible. Click here to see plastic spiral coils for use with the Rubicoil and other spiral binding machines that punch 4 holes per inch.
