Flat unfinished sheet printing case studies
Here are some practical examples of the use of unfinished flat sheets.
Let's say you're the head of a folder and ring binder manufacturing company. Your goal is the production of ring binders, folders with dividers and elastic bands, and much more.
Your customers order the production of these products and deliver the print files to you in high-resolution PDF format. The files are the content to be printed on the paper that covers, on the outside, any of your folders. As you do not own offset presses, you outsource the printing of your cover paper to your trusted online printer. In this case, you go to the product category and select the Unfinished flat sheet category and place your order. You want the printer to deliver the sheets in the same format as they come out from the press, including the finishing you need (lamination, UV varnish) but without any cutting or handling. During the production process of your folders, your machines will perform the task of shaping the product in the most suitable way.
Let's suppose now that you are a manufacturer of bedsheets, protective mattress covers, pillows, tablecloths, etc. In short, you specialize in bedding and household linen. You commercialize each product properly packed in transparent plastic accompanied by a die-cut flyer that identifies the product. In this flyer, you show an identifying image together with a text describing the product, as well as complementary texts showing technical specs. Since your range of products is extensive, you need to print a variety of flyers, so you have already arranged the die-cutting with your usual provider, which takes care of the files and the custody of your dies. The die shapes are always the same, so you just need to select the die that corresponds to each product. The workflow with your die-cutting provider is very fluid. Obviously, you need to outsource the printing of the flat sheets to your trusted online printer. Then you'll apply the finishings mentioned above but most important, you need your usual printer to deliver the unfinished flat sheets to your usual die-cutting provider.
You're a manufacturer of lab kits. As in the previous case, you have already made a set of dies for your standard products, and you also have arranged the services of a company specializing in die-cutting and manufacturing your kits. This supplier not only does the die-cutting, but also the gluing of the kit tabs, delivering the kits to you flat (unassembled). In the same way, you can order the unfinished flat sheets to your trusted online printing company. You can also add the finishings you need, including lamination and UV varnishing, with complete peace of mind. Sheets are delivered flat, with a mark indicating which guides we have used when printing.
