Colored Screw Posts

Colored Screw Posts

Colored aluminum screw posts are used wherever the post is exposed and a different appearance is desired. Instead of hiding the postheads with a fold–over cover, leave them exposed and use a complimentary colored post. You can also use materials such as polycarbonate to build a display where the entire post will be visible. We also offer a large selection of Paper Cutters, Laminating Machines, Coil Binding, GBC Binding and Tape Binding Machines. Consult with our knowledgeable staff if there is a particular machine or product you require.

Screw Post Tips and Tricks

Making Holes for Screw Posts:

For most uses, you should make the hole slightly larger than the post. A 1/4 inch hole is recommended for most applications of aluminum screw posts. The posts will be slightly smaller than this hole, which makes inserting the posts easier. It also allows the pages of the document to spread, making the inside pages of your document easier to read.

You can punch the holes if you only have a small number to do. Use a single-hole punch for swatches, samples, and similar materials. A three-hole punch makes larger sheets of paper easier to punch.

Use a paper drill if you need to put holes in a large number of sheets of paper, or stacks of cover stock, foam core, and similar materials. A drill is also much less effort to use.

Use a high-quality leather punch for leather. For holes in wood, metal, plastics, etc., use a drill press with a bit suited to the material.

Securing Screw Posts:

Finger tight will be sufficient for most screw post applications. If you need more, a screwdriver or coin in the slot can be used to good effect. Make certain that the screw is tight against the post and not the material you are binding.

Some people suggest a drop of thread lock or adhesive for more durable applications. Be very certain that you want the connection to be permanent if you do this.

Other Uses:

All of the suggestions on our aluminum screw post page will work with these colored aluminum screw posts.
