For the Printing Industries

Wire for the production of archive ledgers, bingo tickets, book matches, cheque books, company accounts, exercise books, magazines, memo pads, menus, newspapers, periodicals, raffle tickets etc.

If you "stitch", we can supply the wire.

Whether you need a "mild steel" or "hard steel" our products are manufactured from the best available steel which is heat treated through a strand annealing process to achieve consistent properties, then plated using the latest technology to achieve smooth adherent coatings.

Our normal stock in trade is a polished galvanised finish which gives an effective coating with regard to appearance and corrosion resistance. Copper and Bronze metallic finishers are also available. Additionally for ultimate corrosion resistance, pure brass wire can be supplied.

If you are looking for a prestigious finish on a small run, nylon coated wire in white, black, red, green, blue or yellow is available. Although expensive it may be just the product you are looking for to enhance the appearance of your cover.
