Lights, Camera, FINISH STRONG.

Inquiring minds... Your answers are here!

Yes. The scruff-resistant and scuff-proof films we carry accept animal- and synthetic-based glues.

Anytime you print a dark ink with heavy coverage, finger printing is a concern. To minimize finger printing, laminate using a scuff-resistant, scuff-proof or soft-touch film.

The vast majority of dies are made within 24 hours from the point of order.

We do not hot foil stamp, however we do cold emboss.

Yes – we can dual mount to any fluted material, as well as many other substrates.

Absolutely! We can make prototype samples on the stock of your choice.

No, we do not. We do, however, bind using double wire-o, single-wire, plastic coil, comb (GBC), eyelets, grommets and screw posts.

This is not recommended because the UV coating will dive into the uncoated surface, penetrating fibers of the paper and neutralizing the gloss content of the coating. Some potential work-arounds include:

  • Using a heavily calendered uncoated sheet
  • Using other coatings in advance to prepare the surface to accept UV coating
  • Laminating the sheets with a matte film and then coating the film, in order to achieve optimal contrast.

No – we do not have that capability at this time.

All films have a certain amount of UV inhibitors in them, but to optimize protection against UV fading, we recommend using Polyester “ZZ” Film.

No, we do not. We do, however, bind using double wire-o, single-wire, plastic coil, comb (GBC), eyelets, grommets and screw posts.

For most projects the thinnest stock we can fold & glue automatically is 7pt stock or the equivalent of 80# gloss cover.
