The standard length of each staple is one inch, and usually each book requires two staples. Using the number of books for your quoted job, use our equations below to calculate how many pounds of wire you will need.

(2 inches per book) x (amount of books) = total inches of wire
(total inches of wire) / (inches per spool) = amount of spools
(total inches of wire) / (inches per pound) = amount of pounds
