Swatch Fasteners / Mask Rivets
Swatch Fasteners are a unique swatch fitting with the ability to thread a string or chain through the final made swatch to hang from a stand or to affix a tag. Swatch fasteners are a two part click-together fixing, push the two parts together to clamp your document/swatch firmly and it instantly becomes a permanent, non-openable fastening. They have a ratchet style closure, and the centre of the fastener contains a 3mm hole through which nickel ball chain, string, nylon cord or security tag can be threaded. This can then be hung up for display enabling your customers to easily view your range of products.
Typical uses are for producing colour and other swatch books, secure legal document binding, POS assembly fasteners and for making masks and other PPE products.
Swatch fasteners are made to a patented Presco design and are still the original and the best. We stock them in three colours, a clear plastic, a silver/grey plastic and a white plastic (smallest size only). There are three size options available, the smallest is for just 2 or more sheets of paper up to a total of 3mm capacity. Whether your document is 1 or 3mm thick the same size fastener will grip it tightly. There are then two larger sizes, for swatches up to 6mm thickness or swatches up to 9mm thickness.
If you do not want the fastener to hold the swatch tightly, for example if you want to be able to rotate card samples in the swatch freely you can simply click the fastener just down onto the first ratchet and not all the way down. It will still provide a strong permanent fixing but there will be space for pages or samples to move around freely on the swatch.

What our customer say about this product:
We supply printers, wholesalers, craft companies and more with our swatch fastener (you may have seen it advertised elsewhere through wholesalers and point of sale providers that we supply). End users working with the swatch fastener have used it in a variety of applications:
"The swatch clip has been the best thing for us. Producing hundreds of small sample swatches a day, just seven bits of card and the fixer clips them together, we put a plastic loop through it and fix our brand tag to the loop."
"Yes, we use lots of your swatch fasteners and find them very easy (although a bit sore on the thumbs after pushing 2,000 together!) to use. We fit them into temporary documents as a quick form of binding, single hole punched at top of a few pages then swatch fastener clipped in to hold those pages then we put a ball chain through several of them to keep them all together. Use these fixings all the time and would recommend them."
