Chicago Screw Posts & Binding Rings for Print Shops

Chicago screws (also known as screw posts) and loose leaf binding rings are a simple solution for paper binding, making them a necessity for print and copy shops to keep on-hand. We offer wholesale / resale pricing for print shops, as well as significant bulk discounts for large orders. Call us at (866) 537-2244 for a quote, or email us at

Binding posts are secure, very small to take up little space in your stock room, and are available in a huge selection of sizes, colors, and materials so you can find exactly what you need for your clients. Chicago screw posts are often used for thick books that are too big for traditional binding methods --such as swatches, blueprints, manuals, and more-- because they come in sizes up to 5" long, and have extension add-on's to expand the capacity even more. Whether you need a sturdy way to bind a large film script that allows for easy editing, a way to hold together fabric swatches, or need them to make screw post photo albums for your customers, our Chicago binding posts are a high quality choice. We offer aluminum binding posts, steel Chicago screws, as well as plastic screw post options. Aluminum and plastic options come in several colors, while all of them offer strong hold for whatever materials you are using the binding posts for.

Binding rings are also a necessity for a print and copy shop to keep on-hand, not only for client requests and jobs, but for internal organization of paperwork, hanging of job ticket holders, and more. You can choose from loose leaf binder rings in several styles, including standard loose leaf rings (available in sizes from 3/4" to 2"), screw lock book rings (2" to 10" capacities), as well as several plastic binder ring options for smaller capacities. With loose binding rings you can bind together punched paper, journals and notebooks, swatches, and more. You can also use them to hand and transport items throughout the printing process.
