Pop Up V-Fold Cards Produced in Superspeed

V-Fold Cards

This complex saddle stitched booklet has multiple folded panels and a v style folded popup, which was produced completely automatically in a single pass on our high speed box gluing machines.

V-Fold Cards

These types of folders are often done on folding machines, and either require hand gluing or multiple passes, which increases the price and delivery time.

Tipping Inside Pocket

We’re a Smart Bindery that Finds Creative Solutions

Tipping Inside Pocket

This tip-on book cover featured this week is no ordinary job. It looks like a simple folder, but ultimately becomes the cover of a saddle stitched booklet. The client needed a pharmaceutical information sheet (folded on lightweight stock) to be tipped to the inside cover of a saddle stitched book. Not only did we figure out how to tip-on a lightweight folded brochure to the 2-up covers of a saddle stitched booklet, we did it without multiple machine passes!

Tipping - Specialty Graphic Finishers

The slow way would be to saddle stitch the booklets and then reopen the cover to tip-on the folded pharmaceutical insert. We found a better solution. If there’s a smarter, faster way to do a job, leave it to us!

Tipping Inside Pocket

These covers start as 2-up 3 panel folders. As the third panel of the cover is “backfolded,” a lightweight medical brochure is simultaneously inserted and attached with fugitive glue. This ensures that the tip-on stays in place during the subsequent saddle stitching stage and eliminates the need for multiple machine passes.

The end user simply pulls the inserted piece out of the “pocket” formed between the 2nd and 3rd panels.

Saddle Stitching with Foldouts

Saddle Stitching with Foldouts

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

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 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.

SADDLE STITCHING – DELICATE COVERS

A common problem we see with Saddle Stitched books is when the chosen cover stock has a beautiful texture and finish. These stocks look beautiful . . . until they go through a Saddle Stitcher. The result is a scratched and scuffed book cover.

We have the solution to this common problem! The images below show what we do so solve this problem.

First, we drill 2 large round holes in blank, lightweight stock and then fold as a 4-page. Then, we run the books through a normal Mueller saddle stitcher with the blank cover on. When the Saddle Stitched books are removed from the stitcher, the blank covers fall off.

Depending on the thickness, size and stock weight of the book, we shape the signatures using one of our 4 high die/PMC die cutting machines. We can produce Triangle Saddle Stitched Books in a wide range of sizes and can even add colored wire stitches.
