Wire Binding is one of the most elegant binding styles available on the market and is popular with real estate offices, architects, engineers and marketing departments. Your presentations always look great. Documents also lie flat with 360-degree rotation, making note taking and photocopying hassle-free. Choose from a variety of colours and spine sizes for your project.
This style is ideal for higher end presentations and proposals but should not be mailed without protection for the metal spines can become deformed.
However, if you are considering using Wire Binding in your office there are a few User-Tips you might like to know …
Depending on the size of the documents that you are looking to bind you will need to choose the right wire binding machine. Most wire binding machines either punch the 3:1 or the 2:1 hole pattern. However, the JB Wire Duo manual binding machine is capable of punching both the 3:1 and the 2:1 patterns.
If you are looking for an electric binding machine capable of punching both 3:1 and 2:1 patterns, you will need to consider a desktop modular semi-automatic or stand-alone fully-automatic punch with interchangeable dies depending on document size and output. Call us and we will help you to decide the best solution for your requirement.
Most desktop wire binding machines include a wire closer that is designed to squeeze / close the wires until it is round. It is important that this wire closer is accurate and closes equally across the entire length of the wire otherwise your documents will not operate correctly
When inserting your document, a good trick to remember is to bind the back cover of the report on the front of your document. Then you can flip the back cover over and it will hide where the wire meets giving you a more professional bind.
