Our printing house is based on roll printing. The leading technology is offset. Printing can be done on either of 33 machines produced by the market’s leaders: Müller Martini, Goebel, PCM, Giebler and other. Twelve of them have the function of UV drying which allows us to print over large surface at high paint saturation with efficiency no lower than usual. Most of our presses can apply perforations in line (during the printing process before web is cut into sheets). We can produce sheets (cut separatelyof inter alia A5, A4, A3 size), fanfold paper or rolls. Forms we do can be of any length within circumferences of cylinders we apply (e.g. 1”, 2”, 3”, 4”, 4 1/6”, 5”, 6”, 8”, 9” and other), as specified on the side. It is important to remember that in the place where edges of a plate are fastened to a cylinder there is a cylinder gap- i.e. a space 8mm wide that cannot be imprinted. It can, however, be subsequently filled out by using another printing unit that completes the gap in printing with precision.
We can print guilloche background with sector correction (relief). We use paints visible in UV radiation and that includes microprinting. We moreover apply metallic and desensitizing paints.
In comparison to sheet printing houses our products are perforated during the printing process; it means that every form is perforated separately and thus perforations are applied with precision and sheets are not squeezed. When applying perforation we use blades suitable for particular paper or Clients’ requirements – from microperforations to 8:1 perforations. Such a range enables us to select precisely an optimum length of ties and determine the distance between them so that a product remains an entirety until it is required that a proper portion is separated.
Once a form is perforated ties are pressed to prevent the form from deformation in a pile and to enable smooth imprinting in high volume mailing laser printers.
Our machines allow also die cutting of windows and stripping away the paper from cut out areas.
Fanfold paper and reels have implicit sprocket feedholes.
Our clients often require file holes for ring binders in ordered forms. We do both two and four file holes, depending on needs and individual preferences. Holes are not bored but punched so that their edges are smooth and unimpaired.
Numbering / barcodes
We specialize in production of numbered single part forms and unit sets in any of available forms.
We have units of mechanical numbering (typographic/crushing) – including option with an algorithm and mechanical application of barcodes. In this method printing can be applied in any color A Client chooses.
In the case of more demanding processes of personalization (imprinting of personal data such as addresses or telephone numbers or application of numbers from databases provided by our Clients and barcodes that are generated in-line) we offer laser (magnetographic) technique. Its resolution of 480 dpi guarantees the best imaging quality of applied personalization.
Moreover, we have ink-jet numbering units of 240 dpi resolution that allow to personalize forms directly in-line while printing on an offset machine. The quality obtained on these machines is sufficient to transfer precisely the image of most of barcodes. This technology is commonly used for personalization of unit sets and it works out there excellently.
We have ten collators. The biggest is equipped with eighteen units, which allows us to glue that many sheets at a single machine run. Sheets can be glued either lengthwise of crosswise. They can also be fastened with a crimp lock or multiflex. Using one of the collators we can apply a line of glue secured with a silicon strip (see “Delivery confirmation receipts”). Thanks to the roll technology of production and collating we minimized possibility of error occurrence in numbering within one set.
Our forms can be folded either directly in-line on an offset machine or on one of our buckle folders. A number of folds depends on physical properties of paper to be used.
Multipart fanfold paper have to work smoothly. It is possible to meet this requirement only when all parts stick together when imprinted. In the case of fanfold paper of up to three parts it is enough to press paper within sprocket stubs with blades that cut little prongs in paper and fold them through all the parts. Such a solution does not cause additional material costs and simplicity and effectiveness made it a standard means to fasten parts. In the case of fanfold paper of more than three parts crimp lock is additionally strengthened by multiflex.
When crimp lock turns out not to be enough to fasten all parts of fanfold paper we apply additionally multiflex to ensure 100% effectiveness in this respect. Depending on grammage and format of fanfold paper we apply this solution in products of four and more parts. This method allows to fasten the first and the last part with a narrow self-adhesive tape threaded through sprocket feedholes. Inner parts hold together thanks to crimp lock and the entirety is fastened with multiflex.
On our collators we can glue particular parts of forms in a stub delimited by stub perforation or along one of the edges. In one collator run we can glue up to eighteen parts! It is also possible to glue forms manually in pads by using standard or “intelligent” glue. The latter one is characterized by weaker adhesion between CF and CB parts of subsequent forms and stronger one inside a form between CB to CF parts. This way a single unit set can be easily extracted from a finished pad. It is also possible to apply glue secured with a silicon substrate so that forms can be glued down by our Clients (e.g. an envelope), attached to other objects (e.g. parcels as in the case of consignment notes) or used as delivery confirmation receipts. Moreover, we manufacture integrated labels.
Forms that are used in business need to look professional and perfect even when they consist of several unit sets. It can be achieved thanks to the option of gluing parts of a form in the stub and – if required – subsequently into a wrap around cover. Parts are fastened on collators lengthwise with a line of glue 8-15mm wide. Thus we get an elegant stub that holds parts of a form together. This technology allows also to apply perforation only on selected parts of a form. Moreover, in this technology different kinds of paper can be fastened. The result – always an elegant and neatly manufactured form.
Gluing in pads
A popular way to finish forms – single part forms and unit sets – is gluing them into pads of determined number of forms or into sets. Thanks to special receiving tables we are able to manufacture pads of any – electronically controlled – number of sheets. Pads can be glued either mechanically or manually – depending on technological capabilities that are different for various formats of pads.
Pads normally have a chipboard backer to provide stability to a pad and minimize the risk of an error as far as number of sheets per pad is concerned. Additionally, it is possible to add a cover at the top or to glue a pad into a wrap around cover combined with a fly leaf that is used to prevent self-copying forms from being damaged when filling in other.
Application of glue
Thanks to collators we can not only glue particular parts of a form together but also enrich selected ones with self-adhesive fields secured with silicon substrate until it is used by the Client. This solution allows us to manufacture e.g. consignment notes to be sealed, forms that can be stuck to e.g. a parcel once they are filled in or forms with integrated mailer that can be extracted.
For business purposes it is often the legal requirement to secure half of a form on one of its copies against unauthorized persons. In the case of carbonless paper that remains active all over its surface the only effective solution is to apply desensitizing paint to the front side of a selected part that deactivates copying properties in determined areas. A copy of the impression is transferred to subsequent parties. Additional protection used as a complementation of this technology is deflecting pattern printed in the form of sea of numbers over area to be secured.
This technology is applied in eg. safe PIN envelopes, sick leave forms (a medical record number of the case is secured), forms whose particular parts are an invoice and shipping specification in one (accounting data is secured), forms issued in the financial sector that require original signature on copies.
Carbonization is technology which enables to integrate carbon coating with paper that transfers the impression to subsequent parts. Thanks to this solution it is possible to furnish selected areas on offset or coated paper with copying properties. Our plant is equipped with technology that allows to apply black cold-pressed carbon, where “cold” means room temperature. A disadvantage of this technology is relatively limited durability of carbon coating; we provide a 6-month guarantee against its malfunctioning provided cold-pressed carbon products are stored properly. The alternative is hot-pressed carbon.
Carbonization is technology which enables to integrate carbon coating with paper that transfers the impression to subsequent parts. Thanks to this solution it is possible to furnish selected areas on offset or coated paper with copying properties. We have a production line that allows to produce carbon wax and apply hot-pressed carbonization either in black or in red. A coat of oily carbon applied in this technology remains active for a long time (provided it is stored properly). A cheaper solution is cold-pressed carbonization.
Modern forms need to be elegant and functional . An attractive and sometimes even necessary element of a form is a self-adhesive label. As far as quality is concerned integrated labels are in the lead. They are die cut out of the actual form. When an adhesive coating is applied to the back of the form in the label area and secured with a silicon patch, the label in the shape of a rectangle with rounded corners is die cut on the face of the form. Thus the label can be personalized subsequently in high-volume laser printers of our Clients along with the rest of the form as it is the case of e.g. A4 forms. Application of the adhesive and die-cutting of a label are preceded – if required – by application of printing, perforations and numbering.
Piggyback Labels aplication
A handy and tailor-made product adjusted to requirements of a particular project is a prerequisite for making modern forms attractive and functional. A frequent requirement is to furnish a form with a double label called a piggyback label, which is to guarantee optimum functioning and demanded level of security. Such a label allows to transfer part of the form’s content by re-sticking it.
Depending on material used for piggyback labels it is possible to manufacture labels that can later be easily removed or that cannot be removed in one piece. Thanks to a wide variety of piggyback labels we are capable of meeting all your requirements.
The most modern way of securing paper forms is application of holograms. At the present we are able to furnish forms with holograms provided by our Clients. Depending on kind of provided holograms (in sheets or on roll) they can be pasted either manually or fully automatically. In the case of translucent holograms once they are pasted we get attractive, modern and aesthetic protection of a form. We can also personalize standard holograms by pasting them in the place where your logotype has been previously imprinted by us.
