Brochure Holders Produced Automatically

 

The die cut Brochure Holder I’m featuring is functional, durable and extremely easy to use. Customers can successfully promote their products with these Brochure Holders. Brochures and pamphlets are held securely in the tray.

This design is particularly cost effective because it is a single die cut piece and no hand-labour was required to prepare it in production. The entire piece was produced automatically!

As shown above, the stand is first formed by inserting the tabs into the die cut openings.

Next, the end user pops open the tray, folds the side tabs and tucks the flap into the tray.

Die Cut Hang Holes

As a premier full-service bindery, we offer customers in-house die cutting for retail packaging. We produce a range of hang holes as per client instructions. As you can see in this week’s video, there is a huge range of hang hole styles and sizes.

Die Cut Hang Holes

For a product to fit retail display hooks and hang properly, the hang hole style, size and placement have to be precise. Take a look at the images below to get an idea of how important die cut hang holes are to the retail packaging design process.

Die Cut Hang Holes

Die Cut Hang Holes

Die cut hang holes can have various diameters, from 1/16” up to 1/2”

Die Cut Hang Holes

Some kinds of retail products require offset hang holes to help the product hang evenly.

Die Cut Hang Holes

A Butterfly Hole is mostly used to display small, light retail products. This kind of hang hole is versatile because it fits both single-prong display hooks and Euro-style loop hooks.

Some merchandise may require triple product hanger holes.

Die Cut Hang Holes

This double offset butterfly hang hole is very unusual, we can die cut any required holes for customers.

Die Cut Hang Holes

The open hang hole style makes it easier to lift merchandise off hooks.

This type of die cut hang hole is unique and serves two functions. The hole is both a hang hole and a handle!

Since there is such a huge range of sizes and styles of hang holes, be specific with your client about the size and weight of merchandise and the style of retail hook.

If you need die cutting for a retail packaging or merchandise job, please give us a call!

Saddle Stitching with Foldouts

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

Saddle Stitching With Foldouts

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.

Book Carriers

Book Carriers

Book Carriers

When a client is looking for a slipcase for a book, it’s usually for just a single book and is mostly for aesthetic or protective purposes. Slipcases also can’t really have a handle as the only location makes it difficult to remove the book. Traditional slipcases (pictured below), therefore, aren’t overly practical for the client that wants to carry the books in something functional with a handle.

Book Carriers

Enter the die cut Book Carrier! This style of slipcase requires conventional printing, die cutting, the application of Velcro or magnetic closures and a handle. Traditional handles can be applied, or you can get create and use materials like rope, faux leather, plastic, metal, etc. From a cost point of view, die cut Book Carriers are generally cheaper than a conventional book slipcases and Book Carriers involve you (the printer) in the printing!

FULL SERVICE PACKAGING

Full Service Packaging

Since when did trade binderies do Full Service Packaging for printers? This is a service we have recently introduced as the turnaround timing for some packaging jobs is getting tighter.

Full Service Packaging

We produced 40,000 of these containers out of 28” x 40” sheets. We inline box glued the containers, manually popped them open, snapped the bottom shut, manually inserted the 3 products, and then closed the top.

The advantage of offering Full Service Packaging to our customers is the fact that we greatly reduced the timeline to market by doing the die cutting, inline gluing / box forming and insertion packaging. This gives printers more influence over their customer because the more operations they control, the greater the probability of having repeat business!

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 for this type of locking bottom lapsed years ago and is also referred to as a Hymes bottom, lock bottom or crash bottom.

Lock Bottom Beverage Holders

We easily produce Collapsible Beverage Carriers with all operations done in-house. In addition, to die-cutting, we can also add pressure-sensitive labels in line during the box gluing process (see below).

For standard lock bottom boxes, we can add reinforcing corner brackets and special handles. Collapsible Beverage Carriers can also have clear plastic windowing. Whether your client wants a collapsible carrier or die-cut box with a sturdy lock bottom, give us a call!

CAPACITY FOLDER WITH MAGNETIC CLOSURE

Look at these beautiful Capacity Folders! They’ve been debossed, foil stamped and have hidden magnetic closures. When your client is looking for a folder that will stand out on a desk, we can help!

CAPACITY FOLDER

CAPACITY FOLDER

These two Capacity Folders each required a total 5 finishing operations in our shop:

  1. Debossing
  2. Foil Stamping
  3. Die Cutting
  4. Gluing
  5. Magnet Application

CAPACITY FOLDER

CAPACITY FOLDER

The customer supplied blank 16pt stock, which we debossed on one of our 4 – 40” clamshell die cutters. Next, we foil stamped the flat sheets on one of our 2 – 31” Heidelberg cylinder presses. Third, the sheets went through our a 40” Brausse die cutter to be cut to shape. Finally, because this was a small run, each Capacity Folder was hand glued and had two magnets applied to each closure flap.

CAPACITY FOLDER WITH MAGNETIC CLOSURE

If this job was a much larger quantity, we could have produced it automatically on one of our box gluers.

TEAR-STRIP POSTER MAILER

TEAR-STRIP POSTER MAILER

TEAR-STRIP POSTER MAILER

 

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 folding job that needs to be mailed without an envelope or clip/wafer seals, give us a call!

MAILERS WITH GLUELESS INSERTS

We tackled this project on one of our highly specialized machines. Using this unusual machine, we applied the two inserts to the flat sheet automatically, using a drop of water instead of glue. The drop of water held the two inserts in place as the flat sheet travelled up the fold plate to be glued into a formed pocket, folded, and glued shut as a finished piece. When the water evaporated, the card became loose!

Doing this entire job automatically, and not hand inserting the two cards, saved the client time and money.
