Cards, Cards, Cards

Do you find your wallet swelling with membership cards, loyalty cards, entrance cards, gift cards, hotel entrance keys, and just about everything in between?

These cards have become the norm in both the marketing and security industries—allowing customers to easily identify themselves and providing useful information to the companies they patronize. We’ve also seen a huge rise in the market for faux credit cards (the paper or plastic ones you receive in mail solicitations) because the banking industry is no longer permitted to send real, nonactivated, cards in their advertisements.

As a result, the demand for our Hi-Die equipment is on the rise. Here’s why:

  • Hi-Die is more efficient than individual die cutting.
  • We can cut a wide variety of substrates including paper, plastic, and paperboard.
  • Our multiple machines give us added flexibility to serve our customers.
  • Our minimum size is 13/16" x 13/16" and our maximum size is 19" x 19".

Tinning—Effective and Inexpensive

Tinning is a postpress method whereby a metal strip is clamped to the top and/or bottom of the sheets. It is often used for hanging products such as posters, charts, and calendars because it keeps the edges flat against the wall. Here are a few of the advantages:

  • It is inexpensive and effective.
  • Tin comes in a variety of colors
  • It can be collated or shrink wrapped on our oversized equipment.
  • It can be rolled and inserted into a paper tube for mailing.
  • It can be used with multiple leaves, i.e., a 12-month calendar.
  • Metal tins are available and can include up to three eyelets for hanging.

PUR Adhesives—Perfect for Thin Books

Got a thin book? Think PUR! Here’s why:

  • PUR is the most durable and flexible adhesive on the market.
  • It can form a very strong bond even on projects with heavy ink or coating coverage.
  • PUR withstands frequent usage and extreme temperature fluctuations.
  • It can handle books with just a few leaves—down to 1/16 spine thickness.
  • PUR is great for crossovers and coated stock.
