But we also like to "Bragg" about some of our other post press finishing
services. Our newest services that we are providing to the market have been
built around a product we have been producing for years - brochure mailers.
Taking a step backwards, we have been manufacturing these self contained
mailers for years, but only recently brought the finishing end of products
under our roof. Maybe not as flashy of a machine that you would expect,
however it is one of the only product lines setup in the tri-state area
that is folding and glueing brochure mailers, self contained mailers and
bangtail projects day in and out!
You dred that call from your customer who is asking how fast can they
get it? Those calls launched us into figuring out how we could bring this
very specialized manufacturing process to our shop. Over the years we found
a few other finishers that could do this type of work but preferred not to
because of the complexity and speeds associated with the process - we found
ourselves waiting for weeks on end getting our products back from the
converts, certainly not the best approach to try to grow your business.
Yes bringing these new finishing services into our business hasn't been
easy, but we are now starting to branch out from our foundation of just
converting brochure mailers and realising all of the great services we can
offer to other printers who have found themselves in the same bind.
Our convertings services our setup primarily to take brochures of
various sizes and dynamic folds and to place a remoistenable glue strip
down and to build an envelope that is attached to the brochure. During the
same process the brochure is then advanced into a series of folding units
that allow us to roll fold our brochures to the final size; Customers love
these self contained brochure projects because they have saved upwards of
30% on their project budgets and tremendously simplify their entire
campaign process. These brochures also really hel pexcelrate turn around
times because you are now only producing one brochure that contains the
Certainly when time means everything, the key is to get your project
turned around as quickly as possible. We are more then happy to have you
send us your product all ready printed and ready for finishing and folding.
We do ask that you work with us as you prep your projects so we can help
head any problems off at the prepress stage. We do offer a full line of
templates that match our standard sizes for our self contained mailers that
are available for you to use.
Several of our commercial customers have found it easier, faster and
cheaper to have us complete the entire project at our facility. Our digital
department has equipment that allows us to print these brochure mailers in
short quantities and even offer variable data service through the printed
brochure mailers. Higher quantity needed? No problem, we can handle up to
six colors in-line with a full coating unit to handle Aqueous gloss, satin,
and soft touch services.
It is has been interesting that we now offer these gleing services we
have been getting all types of request for glue services. There really are
endless opportunities for brochure ideas and concepts that contain printing
projects that have some form of tear away slip that goes back into a
continued envelope to be sent back to the originator of the mailer. These
self brochures with envelopes can also be used for statements and invoices
that you are sending to your customers. We have also had a demand for
printing order forms that photographers,and fundraisers. Photography order
forms are great for school and sporting events when the photographer hands
out the request form to the family to take home and complete the ordering
process at a latter time.
Remoistenable Gluing is the application of laying down a very fine strip
of glue that is activated once moisture is applied. This strip in the same
that you would find on a standard envelope. We use the application
primarily on our brochure mailers and self contained brochures.
We can do a wide range of cold gluing. Cold gluing is used for many
applications but is most commonly known for gluing closed envelopes. The
envelopes we make on our self contained brochures are sealed closed with
When our bindery manager found out that we were moving into converating
brochures into self contained envelope applications - he wanted to run for
the hills! Actually we are very fortunate to have the talent we have in our
folding department. AS much as you would assume it should be as easy to
loading paper and folding, folding is as much of an art as everys step in
the graphic arts business. Understanding not only the machines - but how to
take different paper finishes, weights and a wide range of folding
applications and making it work every time takes years of practice. One of
our signatures in the bindery arena is being able to not only create the
envelopes, but then take the brochure and "roll " the brochure up to 6
times to a final size
