Folding and Gluing
When folding and gluing long runs of 5 million or more pieces, we often run the product on a web folding gluing machine. Web folding and gluing machines do require longer set-ups. However, once set-up, we have the ability to sheet, die-cut, window patch, print, fold, and glue all in one high speed operation. Running all of these operations on one machine is very cost effective and therefore lower prices for large volume orders.
Many of our folding and gluing machines are run from die-cut blanks that provide us the ability to run custom printed jobs from 1,000 envelopes to millions. Let us know what you need. Open-end envelopes are manufactured ranging in size from 1” x 1-9/16” to 10″ x 15-3/4″. Open-end envelopes have the opening on the end (short dimension) of the envelope. Available in all materials from Tyvek® to 8 pt. board stock. Open-side envelopes are manufactured ranging in size from 1-3/4” x 1-11/16” to 10″ x 15-3/4″. Open-side envelopes have the opening on the side (longer dimension). Available in all materials from Tyvek® to 8 pt. board stock.
Our specialty is folding and gluing envelopes for plastic cards, archival documents and DVDs. The envelopes used for plastic cards are used to protect bank cards, RFID blocking cards, contactless cards, hotel keycards, building access cards, gift cards and ID cards. We have several envelope sizes and styles that can be used for the plastic card. Whether you are looking to hold two cards, protect your card from skimming, need it custom printed, protect your card water and chemicals, or need something different, we probably have a solution. Archival envelopes are used to preserve documents, photos and film. Special paper, adhesives and construction that passes the Photo Activity Test are used with the archival envelopes. Information Packaging has manufactured over 400 billion envelopes to protect electronic media from the 8″ disc, 5-1/4″ disc, 3-1/2″ disc, CD to the DVD.
