It has a base and lid and is usually wrapped with printed paper or bookcloth material.
The bottom part of a set-up box
A complete set that includes both a base and a lid
The thickness of the paper that is shown in mils (thousandths of an inch)
A metallic closure used to securely close a lid or lid flap to a base
The texture of the paper or material being used to cover the board.
A lid attached to a box that has no sides or ends
The joint where the lid is attached to the base of a one piece box allowing movement.
A plain or printed die-cut paper or board affixed to a box. These are used to enhance or identify the contents
The top portion of a set-up box
A box in which the lid is in the form of a shell into which the base is inserted at the side or end
Material used for securing and reinforcing the corners of a base, lid tray
A box in which the lid fits totally over the base, when opening gives the appearance of a telescope.
The part of the wrap which shows on the inside of the lid
Material that is glued to the base or lid of a box. Wrap can be plain paper, printed paper, book cloth or any other materials that are glueable.
Using color separated artwork: a screen is created for each separate color and/ or copy change. These screens are utilized in applying opaque color ink to the product surface. This method is used for artwork with close registration of multiple colors or large imprint areas. PMS colors can usually be matched adequately at no extra charge.
Utilizing dies, heat, pressure and a variety of colored foils, your logo or other graphics can depressed onto the product surface, producing a bright, shiny or matte metallic design depending on the type of foil selected. Foil Stamping is not recommended for multiple color artwork or art that has close registration.
Using heat and pressure to produce graphics with a raised appearance on the surface of the product.
Using heat and pressure, the debossing die depresses the graphic down into the surface of the product, smoothing out any graining or embossing in the materials.
A custom die made from your artwork is used to apply, cut and seal one ore more pieces of vinyl to the surface of another. When the sealing process is complete, these layers of material are removed, leaving only those within the perimeters of the seal, This technique has some size limitations, but with good artwork, results can be very effective.
The printed sheet of artwork that is placed under the clear overlay.
The process of enclosing printed sheets (70#, coated one-side, enamel stock) under clear vinyl during the manufacturing process. It is also possible to have the product constructed with an outside overlay, open at the top. The inserts can then be inserted into the pocket as you are ready to use them.
A layer of clear vinyl on the outside of a product into which a printed sheet can be inserted by the customer or sealed in permanetly during manufacturing. All stock products allow the customer to insert Printed material beneath the clear overlay.
Entrapment is the process of fully sealing your custom artwork beneath the clear overlay of a product.
A method of cutting materials into various shapes by use of a steel rule cutting die.
Heat Sealing/ High Frequency Welding is when electromagnetic energy in the high frequency range (microwave) creates intense friction that chanegs the vinyl to a liquid state. The pressure being applied to the sealing die holds the differnt layers of vinyl together. When the RF power is removed, the melted vinyl instantly cools and the resulting product is one which has been welded into a single unit.
The “finished edge” on a pocket that is produced by heat sealing, as opposed to die cutting is called the Formed Flap.
Vacumm Forming is the process of heating ridgid PVC near melting point, drawing it over a mold, by applying vacuum from within the mold, producing a rigid finishinhg shape.
