Specialized Inserts & Outserts
Roll and folded inserts and outserts accommodate increasing amounts of information.
Folded Inserts and Outserts
A company is equipped with the latest in miniature-folding equipment for the production of conventional folded package inserts, miniature-folded inserts, RTA outserts, and ribbon package outserts. A state-of-the-art cut-and-stack feeder allows for the conversion of booklets, instructional sheets, coupons, and leaflets into laminated onserts for dispensing like standard pressure-sensitive labels. In turn, these items can be applied to cartons, brochures, or containers to enhance informational areas. Altwood, Elmwood Park, NJ; 201-794-7855; email@example.com.
Inserts and outserts on a roll consist of a micro-folded printed pamphlet with right-angle folds glued closed and affixed to a pressure-sensitive label. This construction allows customers to fit a large amount of information into a tiny amount of space. Pamphlets are offset printed on very light papers, such as 28 lb. Single-color or four- color process is available. Some constructions come with a special two-ply dry-release base, which allows the end-user to easily remove the pamphlet for sticky-free storage in a pocket or purse. The inserts/outserts are suitable for patient instructions and directions for use. They are produced on rolls for automatic or manual application.
