What do you need to make Wire Bound Calendars?

1) Wire Binder and Closer.

The basic wire binder with fixed pins is great for making A4 Landscape/A3 Portrait Calendars.
When making an A4 Calendar in portrait (binding on the shortside) using a fixed pin machine you may end up with half a hole.
There are 2 solutions:-
You trim the paper to size to avoid this or
You upgrade to a wire binder with selectable pins.

The selectable pins allow you to cancel the punch when you have half a hole - so you are able to bind any sized paper (up to A4) without getting half a hole.

For the more ambitious projects (100s - 1,000s of calendars) you should consider an Electric Punch as the manual punching can be strenuous.

2) Calendar Thumbcut Punch.

This is the tool to punch the semi circle in the top/centre of the paper to allow the pages to turn. The Cal Cutter is an excellent tool for this, allowing you to cut the semicircle in a whole calendar in one go. For more commercial applications then the Oslo is recommended as it will slice through up to 10mm of paper in one go.

3) Calendar Hangers.

Calendar hangers are the little hooks that sit in the centre of the calendar allowing you hang the calendar. 76mm are excellent length for most calendars. There are 100mm hangers too for bigger calendars.
The calendar hangers normally come in white.However we have a variety of colours available by special order, normally with next day delivery.

4) Binding Wires.

Binding Wires are the wires that hold the calendar pages together. For the majority of calendars a No 4 wire is suitable. If you are using thick paper or card for every page and adding a thick cover and back then you should be looking to get a No 5 or 6 wire.

5) Wire Cutters.

You will need wire cutters to cut out the centre of the binding wire to slot in the hanger.
