Binding supplies include
Binding Wires – these offer a professional looking finish to bound documents and are often used for reporters note books and the more upmarket wirebound books such as Black N Red. Binding wires come in a wide range of colours and sizes making them suitable for all sizes of bound documents. The added benefit of binding wires is that the pages can lie flat making them great for photocopying of bound documents. We have binding wires from GBC, Ibico and Rexel.
Binding Combs – These are made from plastic and come in a variety of colours and sizes from 6mm diameter capable of securing approx. 10 bound pages up to 51mm capable of securing up to 350 sheets. Plastic binding combs can be opened to allow removal or insertion of sheets and then re-used. We have binding combs from GBC and 5 Star.
Binding Covers – These are manufactured from pressed board and come in plain or textured finishes such as leather grain or linen and are available in a variety of colours. They are ideal to add as front and back covers to bound documents. We have binding covers from GBC, Rexel, Durable and 5 Star.
Thermal Binding Covers – These incorporate the binding covers with an adhesive linen spine which when placed in the thermal binding machine melts the adhesive on the spine to bind the document. These offer the most professional looking of all the types of binding. We have binding covers from GBC, Ibico and Rexel.
