Everyone has seen a folded paper road or trail map, but have you ever picked up a folded plastic road or trail map? This email features a new product we now offer you: finishing and folding plastic! We are one of the handful of binderies that can efficiently fold any quantity of map, in sizes up to 44” x 74”, printed on plastic.
The above images show a plastic map with a number of accordion folds. We can do up to 12 accordion folds on our machines.
The Killarney hiking and ski map shown above is a very large finished piece, which first opens as a book (see image below).
Then, this map opens fully to a large, 44” x 74” plastic map.
You might be asking yourself, “Why plastic?” Or you might be thinking, “Finally! A map that won’t rip when it gets wet or when it’s repeatedly folded and unfolded!” Producing tear-proof, waterproof options might just be what your customer is looking for! This product is great for any product that will be used long term or a wet environment. We’re seeing a growing demand for “plastic” folded products like maps and books. There’s a need for this kind of material and now there’s the technology on the print end to produce a great consumer product.
