We do much more than just printing. From simple projects to complex projects we have you covered. Last week we covered several binding, stitching, and folding techniques that we provide. In this week’s blog, we will continue to discuss additional custom finishes that we provide at Accent Group Solutions.
The drilling process is exactly what it sounds like. Using a rotating bit, round holes are cut into the paper.
The tabbing process is used for folded self-mailers. You will normally see a round adhesive tab that will close a piece of direct mail, to ensure that it doesn’t open and get damaged in the mail.
Shrink Wrap is a polymer plastic that shrinks when the heat is applied to the plastic. Shrink wrap is often used in printing to wrap catalogs, letterhead, notebooks, and many other items. When these items are shrink-wrapped it doesn’t allow them to rub up against anything to get damaged. It also keeps the printed items from getting dirt or moisture on them while shipping.
This process is when printed papers are enclosed by two sheets of clear plastic film. There are several different thicknesses you can choose from when laminating. It is up to the project on the thickness that you will choose. If you want to have a thick protective sleeve, then you will pick a higher mil to use for the lamination process. This process is often used for pages of a book that you will be showing to multiple people or if you have something that will be outside, if it is laminated it will last longer.
Foil stamping requires heat, pressure, metal dies, and foil film to complete the process. This process is used a lot for event invitations and holiday cards to make certain words or shapes to stand out.
Embossing presses an image into paper or a substrate. This is often used to make text, or a logo has a 3-dimensional design.
