SEEDED PAPER

We love a challenge, so when clients have an unusual job or want to incorporate non-traditional materials into a job, we’re all in. 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!

Seeded Paper

Seeded Paper

When a client wanted to use Seeded Paper for a die creased 4pg stringed tag, we directed them to the best Seeded Paper suppliers for this specific job. We experimented with 8 stocks and only 1 ended up working. Another job required experimentation because we needed to guillotine square Seeded Paper cards and automatically tip them onto a carrier.

 

 

We do not sell Seeded Paper, but we can direct you to specific suppliers. Some Seeded Paper is extremely textured because of the size and type of seeds used. Other Seeded Paper options are much smoother. Seeded Paper can be either is very stiff or flexible. Depending on the application, there are various degrees of difficulty in using Seeded Paper.

Saddle Stitching with Foldouts

We can produce highly unusual Saddle Stitched books that have multiple foldouts!

Saddle Stitching

Saddle Stitching

Most binderies can do 6pg foldout covers on Saddle Stitched books, but only a few (like us!) can also add foldouts from the top and/or bottom and/or face.

Saddle Stitching

These operations require die-cutting, oftentimes some very tricky folding and then Saddle Stitching. We can do all these processes in-house, using one of our 4 – 40” Bobst/Brausse die cutters, box gluers, buckle/plow folders and Mueller saddle stitchers.

PERFECT BINDING – 4” THICK

We have just re-engineered one of our perfect binders. We can now Perfect Bind books up to 4” thick! I don’t know of any other bindery that can do this.

PERFECT BINDING

The book pictured above is Smyth sewn with a drawn-on cover. We can Perfect Bind 4” books that are PUR Perfect Bound as well as Layflat Perfect Bind.

If you need a special Perfect Bound book that is extra thick, give us a call!

TRIANGLE FOLD

One style of folding you don’t see very often is Triangle Folding. This style of folding is a great option because it’s distinctive, memorable and just plain different! We can do a Triangle Fold on sizes up to 20” x 20” on 50lb to 100lb offset.

Triangle Fold

Triangle Fold

A Triangle Fold can have multiple panels. For instance, a piece that measures 10” x 40” could be accordion folded down to 10” x 10” and then right angle folded. Then, for the final Triangle Fold, we “bump and turn” the sheets and then, depending on the stock and number of panels, we plow or knife fold.

Map Folding

There are only a few binderies in North America that can efficiently fold huge
quantities of maps on sheets as large as 44” x 80”.

The above images show a plastic map with a number of accordion folds.
We can do up to 24 accordion folds on our machines.

The two images below show common road maps that we fold.

The two images below have 5 accordion folds and the right angle folded.

Large Sheet Accordion Folding

Accordion Folding is just one of the many services our bindery offers. We can produce 24 accordion folds in one pass . . . on sheets as large as 44” wide! If you’re trying to get a job folded that is unusual or tough for other binderies, please give us a call.

Large Sheet Accordion Folding

We also do extra-small Accordion Folding jobs. Our machines can Accordion Fold pieces as small as 3/4” wide!

Perpetual Card

This is one of my all-time favorite pieces! It’s called many things, but we call it The Perpetual Card. Perpetual Cards are a genius, tactile marketing tool that engages users unlike few other products available. It folds endlessly and reveals 4 individual designs.

We can produce Perpetual Cards in be different sizes, stock weights (heavier is better) and small to large quantities. This product is not under patent.

Depending on the distribution method, one of the very slight disadvantages of a Perpetual Card is that the design does not allow it to inserted automatically.

The diagram below shows how the images change as the Perpetual Card is folded in sequence.

Specialty Tipping

We do high-volume tipping and attaching jobs in all quantities!

If the job requires tipping multiple pieces, we can do it … all in one pass!

If the job requires tipping inside a pre-folded brochure or booklet, we can do it … all in one pass! Our machinery opens the brochure so we can tip up to 3 pieces on the inside, plow fold shut and add a clip/wafer seal on 1, 2 or 3 sides.

If the job requires adding glue at the head, foot and face to close, we can do it! If the job requires perforated tear-off cards or tipping on two pages, we can do it!

The image below shows a 4-page tipping job. We tipped the piece onto the carrier, folded it and then added a clip/wafer seal to close.

Specialty Tipping

The image below also shows a 4-page tipping job, but this carrier had 2 pieces attached/tipped on.

Specialty Tipping

The image below shows a PMC die-shaped card we tipped onto a 4-page brochure.

Huge Folding

How many binderies do you know of that can fold sheets up to 44” x 80″? Our folders can handle sheets that large and we can do a wide range of folding options!

Huge Folding

As you can see, the poster I am holding is huge and we folded it on one of our machines! In the past, when road maps were not GPS and were all on paper, most binderies had machines that could fold large sheets. We are one of the few binderies today that have the machinery that can accordion or roll fold sheets that are 80” long and 44” wide! Our machinery can right angle fold sheets as wide as 44” and then do second and third right angle folds.

Does your client have a job that they want printed and folded on an extra-large scale? Give us a call for jobs that required sheets as large as 44” x 80”. We can help!

Kiss Cutting

Kiss Cutting - Specialties Graphic Finishers

The service featured in this email is Kiss Cutting. The particular job I show in the video above is a sheet of Kiss Cut stickers that was bound into a children’s Christmas wish catalogue. You might be thinking, “I thought there was just one kind of sticker!” Well, there are Kiss Cut and die cut stickers. The main difference is that a Kiss Cut sticker has a backer that is larger than the sticker, whereas a die cut sticker and its backer are the same size. Kiss Cut stickers are made by adjusting the die so that while it cuts through the sticker, it only “kisses” (but doesn’t cut through) the backer.

Two benefits of Kiss Cutting are that there can be more than one sticker on each sheet and the stickers are easier to remove from the backer. The image below shows the difference between a Kiss Cut and die cut sticker.

Kiss Cutting - Specialties Graphic Finishers

This particular Kiss Cutting job was 25 stickers on 5.2 million sheets … that’s a lot of stickers! We can do much smaller jobs and jobs in the millions of sheets. Each of these Kiss Cut stickers is about the size of a nickel and are in various positions all over an 8.5” x 11” sheet.  We have 4 – 40” Bobst/Brausse die cutters (one that is up to 36” x 50”!) that can handle a range of jobs.

As you can see in the image above, Kiss Cutting was just a part of the job; we also die cut the individual sheets. One of the advantages of working with us is range of services we offer and our capacity. Not only do we offer die cutting services, but also binding, foil stamping, embossing and gilding … all value-added services!
