Are Custom Size Wire Binding Supplies Available?

Custom Wire Binding SuppliesSo you want to bind a custom-size book using wire, but can’t seem to track down wire available in the right length. The only double loop wire that seems to be available is 11-inches long. Are there any custom wire options? Here are a few ideas you may want to consider.

I completely understand the need and the desire to wire bind books in custom sizes. Not everyone wants to use, read or bind books that are 11-inches long. You may want to bind a photo album that is only 6-inches long, or perhaps a cookbook that is only 8-inches long. So what are your options with wire?

Unfortunately double loop wire is not sold in custom lengths, but don’t worry. Our customers are very creative and have come up with easy ways to bind custom books using standard 11-inch wire.

What’s the magic tool they use? They use a pair of wire snips. Really. It’s that simple. Wire binding supplies are made from a very thing gauge of wire, which is simple to snip shorter to the length you need.

Customers tell me they will put the 11-inch wire in the punched holes and then slip the excess wire prior to closing. You can’t tell the wire is snipped and it still looks professional.

This method of custom wire binding can be applied to 2:1, 3:1 and 19-ring Spiral-O wire. Custom-length binding supplies usually cost more than the standard 11-inch supplies anyway.
