Your Vancouver Island Source for Die-cutting, Foiling and Embossing
We are in business to provide the printing industry with specialized types of printing processes such as die cutting, foiling stamping, embossing, folding & gluing, along with other printing trade services. It’s imperative to make your marketing materials stand out. Your marketing materials should strive to be different so that you can get an edge over the competition. Many printed materials such as brochures, business cards and postcards don’t have anything unique that separate them from the competition. Incorporating textures into your designs is a fantastic way give your marketing materials a visual and tangible edge that won’t be forgotten.
DIE CUTTING – Don’t limit your project to a square — give your product curves or have intricate folded patterns cut to suit. A die cut is achieved by first creating a steel-rule die that is used for cutting the material in the desired shape. We can produce anything from display boxes, header cards, point-of-purchase displays, to pocket folders. We have a wide range of “stock” cutting forms at your disposal, with no charge for their usage. Or we can help you design a custom form to give your project an extra something.
FOILING – Foil stamping is the only printing process capable of applying bright, non-tarnishable metallic effects to paper. The basic concept behind foil stamping is simple. The process is achieved when a stamping die is mounted on a platen and heated. Foil is then placed between the die and the material to be imprinted. When the die presses against the foil, the heat releases the coloring layer from the foil and binds it to the end product.
EMBOSSING – Embossing creates a raised image on the paper. Embossing adds a distinctive touch to folders, business cards, stationery, folders, and covers. Embossing is the process in which paper is pressed into a relief using heat and pressure. It requires an etched metal die and a matching counterdie. When a paper stock is pressed between the heated die and the counterdie, the desired image is pressed into the stock.
FOLDING & GLUING – When it comes to putting your project all together we’ve got you covered. We do it all including half-folds, tri-folds, letter fold, gate folds, z-folds, accordion folds and more.
HANDWORK – ASSEMBLY – Sometimes certain jobs require special attention, for this very reason we also offer hand assembly when your job requires it. We can make your project come together by putting all the finishing touches on it to make it really get noticed.
