Ninja Turtle Twist Ties

As resident experts on all things twist ties, it was obviously cool for us to see a twist tie art project such as this get such large scale attention recently. And why shouldn’t it?

Cable Ties Keeping Things Together

Cable ties for cards

Browsing through Flickr the other day and I came across this useful way of holding your life together. It’s a picture taken by N6HON depicting a car that MIGHT have been in a little bit of an accident recently. Yet instead of haphazardly zip tying the body of the car back together, or heaven forbid … Continue reading

Wire Cable Ties as an Artistic Medium

If you want to be an artist (or a graffiti artist, as seen above), there’s a whole pile of options when it comes to the medium in which you choose to work. Paint, ink, charcoal, chalk, pencil—the list goes on and on, and that’s just for two-dimensional art. If you want to work in three … Continue reading

In an Unforeseen Pinch? Use Zip Ties!

I have absolutely no idea. … Continue reading

This one is clearly designed as a matching accent for some kind of minimalism interior design. Don’t get me wrong — it looks good and while I … Continue reading

Zip Tie Window Display

Zip ties have finally made the move to the world of high fashion, being spotted as a backdrop for a window display on the streets of New York. Frankly, I’m surprised it’s taken this long. After all, we already have zip tie dresses — or at least one of them that I’ve found. Interestingly at … Continue reading

Twist Ties vs Zip Ties Death Match

Twist ties

Taking a break from discovering awesome new zip tie stuff on the internet to address a surprisingly common (and annoying, if you’re me) question: why not show twist ties stuff too? The argument goes that, like zip ties, there are all sorts of strange and wonderful things that people do with twist ties. To put … Continue reading

Let’s take a look at some … Continue reading
