We also can kiss cut self adhesive sheets to make label sheets, ideal for packing labels and picking sheets.

Duplexing

Duplexing is the gluing or two layers of card together to make a thicker card, triplexing is three layers. Different colours and textures can be used for each layer, ideal for thick, standout business cards.

Embossing

Hover Box Element

Using our platen press we can blind emboss and deboss into paper or card, this can be combined with duplexing so the image can only be seen from one side.

Foiling

Hover Box Element

We have two options for foiling, either tradition hot foil stamping or a new digital option. The digital option has the added advantage of minimal set up cost and short lead times.

Hole Punching

Hover Box Element

We use special paper drills for making holes. We can drill most combinations and sizes of holes. Standard 2 or 4 hole drilling is ideal for pads and sets that require inserting into binders for record keeping. We can also drill single small holes with or without string, ideal for clothing tags and the retail industry.

Laminating

Hover Box Element

Laminating is a thin clear film that is applied with heat and pressure to one or both sides of card. We have three options, gloss, matt and new velvet soft touch which is very tactile. Laminating should not be confused with encapsulating, which uses thicker film with an overlapping edge to totally seal the card.

Numbering & Perforating

Hover Box Element

All our invoices, NCR pads and sets can be sequentially numbered and perforated, we can also number and perforate tear off raffle tickets and voucher books.
