Glued Folders - More Info

Summary:

Our standard range of glued presentation folders arrive fully finished, ready to use and offer a sleek professional finish without the need to invest in an expensive cutting form. Choose from a wide range of pre-designed templates up to 10mm capacity and if you're not sure which you need, simply ask us for free samples.

Prepress:

Whether or not you request a proof, all supplied artwork files undertake our rigorous 10 point file check to ensure your printed job turns out exactly as you intend. Using sophisticated software, files are automatically checked and imposed ready for printing in the most effective way to minimise waste. Every job is sent to print along with a FOGRA colour-matched proof to ensure high levels of colour accuracy.

Templates:

We offer a range of styles, all available to download as templates, in your favourite file format. 

Material:

Choose your preferred gloss, silk, or uncoated board - and like with every material we use at Flexpress all are first grade, environmentally responsible materials.

High Definition Printing:

Every job at Flexpress is printed using the finest technology available. You wont receive any products printed on beefed-up photocopiers from us - another reason we back everything with our total satisfaction guarantee. Pocket Folders are printed either lithographically using LED UV inks or using HP Indigo offset which is arguably the finest digital technology available.

Precision Finishing:

Whichever template you choose, your pocket folders will be cut out and creased using a Heidelberg Cylinder Machine; still regarded as the most effective way to cut and crease at this size.

Glued folders will arrive fully assembled and finished.  Please be aware that capacity folders take up a considerable amount of space when fully assembled.

Please note: when folded, fibre-cracking along the crease of board is a natural characteristic which becomes ever more apparent when heavy ink coverage is present. The cutting forms we use utilise traditional matrix type creasing rules which helps to minimise cracking but it's unrealistic to guarantee that this will eliminate the issue completely;

especially when the folder has been opened and closed a few times. We would always recommend laminating the outer of the folder if this is likely to be a cause of concern; particularly if heavy ink solids have been used. Unless laminating is specified Flexpress are unable to take any responsibility for fibre-cracking, which is ultimately a naturally occurring phenomenon.

For orders of folders below 1000 in quantity, dispatch times are as follows:

  • Express - Next working day*
  • Standard - Two working days*
  • Saver - Three working days*

To ensure our printed work arrives in the best possible conditions, goods are packaged up to to a maximum of 15Kg per box, in extra strong double-walled corrugated boxes and taped with reinforced tape.

All orders are dispatched by reputable national carriers on a next working day service. This will usually arrive by 5pm although please be aware once goods have left our premises we have no influence on when they are delivered. If you would like to upgrade to a AM or Saturday delivery, you can do this at checkout for an additional cost.

We take quality and customer service very seriously. Our right-first-time approach coupled with cutting edge technology and professional team mean we're confident enough to offer a total satisfaction guarantee. If through any fault of ours, there's an issue with your printing, we'll always arrive at a solution to leave you 100% happy.

 

 

FAQs - Glued Folders

Why has the printing cracked down the spine of the folder?

Fibre-cracking on folds is a natural characteristic of paper and board and is more noticeable where heavy ink coverage is intended to go over the spine. Flexpress use a creasing rule and matrix counter force, which is universally recognised as the the best method of creasing folders, to dramatically reduce the effect of fibre-cracking. However it is impossible to eliminate completely without laminating so if you feel this may be an issue with your design please ensure you select a laminated finish as Flexpress can't be held responsible for fibre-cracking when laminating is not chosen. 

Will the glue work as well on laminated surfaces?

The glue forms an equally strong bond whichever type of laminate you choose.

How do glued folders come packed?

Glued presentation folders are fully assembled and packed in slightly over size A4 double-walled boxes. Bear in mind that a double pocket capacity folder is 10mm wide so we only get about 20 in a box. This equates to 50 boxes for 1000 folders so you'll need some space to store them!

How many sheets of paper will a non-capacity interlocking folder hold?

A non-capacity folder can comfortably take at least 15 sheets of typical 80gsm bond. Non-capacity simply means there isn't a gusset so there is a point at which the folder won't close comfortably if there are two many inserts. If in doubt, ask for a sample.

Why are they only available in 350gsm material?

We make hundreds of thousands of folders each year and experience has taught us that 350gsm material offers the best all-round performance in terms of strength and flexibility. Go thinner and the folders are not as strong as they could be and thicker and the folders tend to be too 'springy'

Can I use my own design?

If it's a folder design you use regularly, we can set it up as a 'private' product so only you can access it by logging in to our website. If however, it's a design that will only be used once or twice, talk to our bespoke quoting team for a custom quote.

Will you use my existing cutting form?

It's doubtful we'll be able to use your cutting form. Most folders are designed to be assembled by hand and have the glue tab on the pocket. Our cutting forms are all designed with the tab on the body of the folder as opposed to the pocket to suit mechanical assembly. In addition our cutting forms are all designed at a specific size and cutting depth to speed up job changeovers.

Will your over size A4 folders still fit into a standard envelope?

Our non-capacity and 5mm capacity over size folders will both fit into a standard C4 envelope. Our double pocket capacity folders which hold 10mm capacity, wont.

File Set-up Information
Hints and Tips:

  • We would always recommend using Adobe InDesign or Adobe Illustrator to create your artwork, with the easiest way being to download one of our templates above and use that as your base.

  • If you want artwork on the flap which folds up from the bottom, remember to position it upside down! This will then look correct when the folder is made up.

  • When exporting your file as a PDF, please ensure you select 'PDF/X-1a:2001' in the output settings, and ensure you have 3mm bleed and trim marks.

  • We work to FOGRA39 colour standards too, so please ensure you are using that colour profile.
