Helpful Hints

Three Value-Added Services

For most projects, the planning and production focus is on the "anchor" services we will perform, such as die cutting, foil stamping, embossing and UV coating. The attention is deserved; since these services often make up the bulk of a customer's investment in a project, everyone wants to be sure they're done right.

But there are many other services at Apex Die that help save time, save money and improve the quality and functionality of your products. These "unsung heroes" of the Apex Die workflow don't get much attention, so let's highlight three of them:

Apex Die: Shrink Wrapping

Shrink Wrapping
If surface protection is a critical factor for your products, few methods do a better job than shrink wrapping. It's also a must for ensuring product sets reach end users exactly as intended. A finisher that can perform shrink wrapping inline with other services can save time and money while eliminating the hassle of unpacking, shrink wrapping and re-packing your products elsewhere.

Apex Die: Kleenstik Taping

Kleenstik Taping
This double-sided adhesive tape is the Swiss Army knife of finishing. It can be used to create pockets, seal envelope flaps, enclose CD or DVD mailers, or hang POP displays. It can create either a permanent or reusable seal depending on your application. Its strength is superior to that of remoist glue, making it more effective on thicker stocks. And it can be applied to a variety of substrates, including plastics and synthetic papers.

Apex Die: Eyelet Web

Eyelets or grommets create a durable hanging solution for POP displays, packaging, signs and banners. They are most commonly constructed of brass and can be applied to mounted or unmounted products. Apex Die can apply eyelets in a wide range of sizes and colors to match the design and hanging needs of any application.

The Apex Die Advantage
Shrink wrapping, Kleenstik taping and eyeletting are just a few of the value-added services Apex Die offers to create a complete workflow for packaging, POP displays, folding cartons, media holders and many other products. By consolidating your production needs with Apex Die, we'll help you save significant time, money and headaches.
