Screw Post Tips and Tricks

Holes for Plastic Screw Posts:

You should make the hole slightly larger than the post to prevent tearing. A 1/4 inch or a 5/16 inch hole is recommended. The posts will be slightly smaller than this hole, which makes inserting the posts easier. Make a test sample if you are using materials other than the standard paper and cover stock to see what hole size works best.

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 than a hand-operated punch.

For holes in wood, metal, plastics, etc., use a drill press with a bit suited to the material. Check with the supplier or the manufacturer of the material you are using for the proper type of bit to use.

Binding Small Documents with Plastic Screw Posts:

This is where these posts excel. Plastic screw posts are available in lengths starting at 1/8 inch. These tiny posts are suitable for only a few pages. Remember to select posts long enough that the screw will snap in all the way. Posts that are too short can pull apart in use, so make them too long rather than too short.

Plastic Screw Posts in Signs and Displays:

Screw posts are a quick and easy way to assemble many types of signs, retail displays, and similar items. Use whatever materials you want, then drill or punch the proper size holes for the screw posts. Select the screw post length to be the same or slightly greater than the total thickness of the materials you are assembling. Once you have everything ready, just insert the posts and snap them together. It couldn't be easier.
