All About Folding and Gluing

At Larkin Industries, we specialize in several print finishing techniques. One technique that is useful for many promotional pieces and other items is folding and gluing. Minneapolis businesses are able to send their ideas to us to implement. We will discuss more of what folding and gluing is as well as what type of products it can be used to make.

Folding and gluing is the process used to convert a flat sheet into a finished product, such as an envelope, box or promotional item. Most of these products are designed to hold inserts or similar materials.

Folding and gluing involves folding the blank or printed paper stock along pre-creased lines and applying the adhesive that will hold the product together. Folding and gluing can be performed on a wide variety of materials including paper, cardboard and certain plastics.

Folding and gluing allows the customer to add dimension to an otherwise flat piece of cardboard or paper. This allows other items to be placed inside, and it also works well for promotional pieces, making them more interesting and therefore more likely to be opened.

Many of the print finishing products we create use folding and gluing. Here are a few examples of items we can create with this process:

  • Pocket folders
  • Gusseted folders
  • CD sleeves
  • DVD jackets
  • Key card holders
  • Gift card holders
  • Cardboard shipping envelopes and packages
  • Photo holders
  • Small packages for retail products
  • Custom designed mailing packages

If you need a special piece created for your business, we can help! For some items, like pocket folders, we have layouts available. For other products that are more unique, we can work with you to create it. Let us know what you want done and we will find a way to make it happen!

Whether you need pocket folders for a meeting or want a unique direct mail piece to promote a sale or special event, we can create it. We have the technology and equipment to make your products efficiently and cost-effectively. Feel free to visit with us for more information on what we can do to help your business.
