Wire-O® Twin-Loop Binding Supplies (Box of 100)

Item #: WIREOBINDING-CFG

Wire binding is the most popular binding solution for businesses who need to create professional-quality books. The Wire-O® spines offer a clean and high-class appeal that is unmatched by any other traditional binding method. Books bound with Wire-O® double-o wires lay flat and the sheets can flip a full 360°. They offer a semi-secure binding method that can only be un-bound if cut off.

Available in both 3:1 pitch and 2:1 pitch options for your Wire-O® binding machines, these twin loop wire spines come in a large selection of colors including black, white, silver, pewter, blue, green, and several more. 3:1 pitch wire-o comes in sizes from 1/4" up to 9/16", which means it can be used for books from 2 to 120 sheets. 2:1 pitch wire-o is typically available in the larger sizes from 5/8" up to 1 ¼", perfect for books from 135 to 280 sheets, but we also offer unique special smaller 2:1 wires in the full range of sizes, offering more versatility. Select a color, pitch, and wire size below. All sizes are packaged with 100 wires per box.

2:1 wires feature 21 loops and 3:1 wires feature 32 loops.

Product Description

Wire-O® binding supplies are the most popular binding spine in offices and print shops looking for a professional and clean finish. Sometimes called twin loop wire binders, these binding spines offer a stylish metal finish in a variety of colors including black, white, silver, pewter, blue, green, red and more. Wire-O is a semi-secure binding method, meaning that the book cannot be unbound without cutting and discarding the spine itself. Books bound with Wire-O® double-o wires lay flat and the sheets can flip a full 360° from front to back, making it an ideal solution for notebooks, journals, and calendars, when paired with our calendar hangers.

Wire binders are available in either a 3:1 pitch (pronounced "three to one" and with 3 holes per inch) or a 2:1 pitch (pronounced "two to one" and with 2 holes per inch) options. Depending on the capabilities of your wire binding machine, you can choose either pitch or both. 3:1 pitch wire binding options range in sizes from 1/4" up to 9/16". 2:1 pitch wire binding, however, is available in a wider variety from 1/4" up to the largest 1 ¼" size. Most 2:1 wires only come in sizes 5/8" and larger, however, we offer special smaller 2:1 pitch wires in select colors.

When you bind with wire o spines, you can create a professional, attractive, and clean book up to 280 sheets* thick. Use the capacity chart below to help determine the best size for your needs, and buy wire-o twin loop binding supplies online today.

Good ProductReview by Hannah

I am happy with the wires I bought. They were packaged really neatly, with a little piece of cardboard for each loop of the rows of wire, which was great so they didn't get tangled. I can remove 1 wire from the cardboard separators without disrupting the organized box, which is great too. Received them real fast too, the next evening (faster than Amazon, sheesh!). The wires themselves are good quality, and the pewter color is a really nice kind of matte or muted silver...almost pearlescent, kinda. It looks real nice. Wires are kind of fidgety to work with...like the closer has to be set perfectly for the size and you have to close them tightly, otherwise they end up oval. But I am by no means a professional, and was able to perfect it with a little practice. (Posted on 4/5/17)
