Twin-loop wire binding, also known as Wire-O binding or double-loop binding, is a bookbinding method that involves threading a double-looped wire through a series of closely spaced square holes punched along the edge of a stack of pages. The wire is then crimped at both ends to keep the pages securely bound together.
Wire-O binding is a popular and professional binding method for a wide range of documents, such as reports, proposals, calendars, and journals. It allows the pages to lie flat when opened and provides a sleek and modern appearance.
The wire used in Wire-O binding is available in seven colors and a variety of sizes, making it easy to customize the look of the bound document. The wire is made of steel and is nylon coated, which allows for added durability and flexibility.
Wire-O binding is often used for documents that require frequent reference or handling, as it can withstand wear and tear without compromising the integrity of the book. Wire-O can also be used on book designs with semi-concealed or fully-concealed wire.
