James Burn International inventor of double loop binding WIRE-O ®.


Wire-O® opens flat 

Unlike all plastic or glue-based binding systems, Wire-O® bound documents will open flat and stay flat making it an ideal solution for notebooks, instruction manuals, text books, cookery books, atlases

Documents fold back to back 

Uniquely, Wire-O® bound documents may be folded back to back without damaging the spine and losing pages. 

Binds a range of materials 

Be creative - you can now use different materials in your documents including: acetates, plastic sheets, cartridge or art paper, thick and thin samples, material swatches, and even most metals. If you can punch holes in it, you can probably Wire-O® bind it!

Perfect registration 

Wire-O® holds pages in perfect registration making ideal for any document that requires overlays: floor plans, site layouts, circuit diagrams, educational drawings.

Double page spreads 

Each page can be designed to its fullest dimensions. As the document opens completely flat, images that run across two pages (eg maps, large illustrations, layouts, flow charts) are effectively presented.

Standard colours: black, white, blue, red, and silver.


Other colours are also available on request.


Meets US and European (REACH) safety standards.
