Lock Bottom Beverage Holders

The product I’m showing in this email is die-cut Collapsible Beverage Carriers. This type of carrier ships flat but has a bottom that “locks” into place when erected. The end-user simply squeezes two sides together to erect the carrier, which is sturdy enough to carry between 2 and 6 beverage bottles or cans. The patent […]


Many people think Ring Binders are a thing of the past. Ring Binders (with improvements), however, are sticking around because of just how useful they are! What we see more of are value added features like cloth or litho wrap covers, magnet closures, built-in stands, gromets for hanging, etc. When these components are combined, a […]


The featured product this week is Swatch Books. Swatch Books aren’t limited to just paper … if you can collate the swatches, we can make it into a book! The Swatch Book you see in the image above is part of a 50,000 run we do each year for an American printer. The images of […]


  The Tear-strip Mailer featured in this email unfolds to large 28×40 sheet. The tear strip was die cut and then we folded the Mailer on one of our 44” x 80” folding machines. Lastly, we plow folded the final fold over flap and line glued the Mailer closed. When your client has a large […]


I’ve previously shown a new product for us, which the industry calls Setup Boxes. I often use the term “chocolate box” as it’s a bit more descriptive. The product I’m showing this week is largely produced on our Setup Box machines but is designed to hold booklets. A piece like this requires regular die cutting, […]


In past videos, I’ve shown Courier Envelopes, of which there is an exploding demand as online shopping increases. The piece featured in this week’s video is a Courier Envelope but with an added process – a clear plastic address window. We do the entire process, from die-cutting, gluing, applying plastic tear-strips and double-sided tape to […]


Case wrapping board isn’t just for hardback book covers. The product featured in this email is a Product Swatch Board, which would ultimately have metal door handles riveted on as a sales piece. We die cut, case wrapped and lined this Case Wrapped Product Swatch Board and then applied metal corners for durability. The client […]


Are you a designer, print broker or printer that’s on the hunt for something different and unusual to differentiate your product? Flock is just that – different and unusual and it can be applied to books, boxes, packaging, etc. Flock is the fuzzy stuff you see on paper and books! It feels and looks like […]


Rollabind, which is also known as Discbinding, is a mechanical binding process like Wire-O and Plasticoil but with a major advantage. The Rollabind binding method was designed to enable end users to add and remove sheets by hand without damaging them. Books bound with Rollabind lay flat when open and can be opened 360 degrees! […]

One of the benefits of working with us is our experience in experimenting with different products and knowing the right suppliers. We’re used to doing a lot of experimentation for different projects!
