A hole punch (also known as a hole puncher) is a common office tool that is used to create holes in sheets of paper, often for the purpose of collecting the sheets in a binder or folder.

Hole punches are devices used to make holes, typically in thin objects such as paper.

‘Hole punches’ are also known as ‘paper punchers’, ‘holing pincers’, ‘hole makers’, ‘hole punchers’ and ‘perforators’.

A leather punch, of different construction from one designed for paper, is used for leather goods, cloth, or thin plastic sheeting. Hole punch tools are also made for use on sheet metal, such as aluminum siding or metal air ducts.

Hole punches are most commonly used in office workplaces for punching holes in documents for binding, although there are variety of hole shaped punches used for other purposes including leatherwork.

The origins of the hole punch date back to Germany via Matthias Theel, where two early patents for a device designed to "punch holes in paper" have since been discovered. Friedrich Soennecken made his patent on November 14, 1886, for his Papierlocher für Sammelmappen.

Hole punches for industrial volumes (hundreds of sheets) feature very long lever arms, but function identically.

Hole punches come in a wide range of colours and sizes, and the blade can be small cylinder that will punch small holes, or it can be shaped like a star, heart, flower or other small shape.

Hole punches are most commonly made of metal, and they often have plastic components and casings, as well as a catcher to catch the ‘chads’ – the scrap circles.
