Paint Can Labels

An interesting, trivial fact is the fact that the sale of “paint” is growing substantially.  People change paint colours more frequently.  To the point of this Eblast, printers are being asked to print more paint can labels than ever before!  As pictured, all gallon paint can labels have two 1” or 1 ¼” round holes for the handle insertion.  There…

Elastics

Elastics as you can see “book elastics” come in dozens of colours, different widths, and a few different “sewn patterns,” round or flat.  Elastics for book are used increasingly for the exploding diary, journal, notebook market.  One “journal” book manufacturer called “Moleskine” generates over a billion dollars per year selling “journals”!!!  Three other companies producing similar products are doing a…

PMC

I did an Eblast about PMC machines over two years ago but I’m repeating the topic because this video explains the process much better.  As you can see in the pictures and video, the PMC die which is shiny, silver steal, acts like a giant “cookie cutter.”  Two or three inches of pre-sized printed products such as single sheet, folders,…

Playing Cards

We finish playing cards.  Lots of sizes, shapes, stock weights and card counts.  One of our competitive advantages is ability to collate single sheets, with thicknesses up to 20 point.  In additions we have PMC die-cutters.  PMC machines are absolutely necessary to produce card sets, because card sets finished through a PMC die-cutter have sides that are as smooth as…

The “printing” is done first…

Three Panel Cover

These pieces are memorable, unusual and user engaging.  I’ve said it in the past that “a genius is someone who knows the difference between a fad and a trend.”  Since I’m not a genius, I don’t know if these three panel cover books, are a trend or a fad!  On occasions when I’d shown different folks one of these books,…

Binders

What I’m showing in this video and still pictures what are usually simply called a “Binder.”  An older but more descriptive term is “ring binder.”  An even older term is “loose-leaf ring binder.”  The main purpose of a binder is to enable the user to add or remove sheets.  As explained in the video, the vast majority of binders are…

Big Sheets

Sheets larger than 28” x 40” for example 34” x 48” or 36” x 74” etc…often need to be folded.  The maximum size for most binderies is 30” x 42.” Our maximum is 44” x 80!”  Years ago, binderies with these large folding machines were quite common and they were busy, sometimes, around the clock, folding roadmaps.  For all intents…
