We helped a printer and direct mail company reduces cost by 90% while increasing production output by 20%.Talk to a Packaging Specialist
A large scale printer and direct mail company was using millions of 1” clear wafer seals to seal materials in their direct mail operation. In addition to the price of the wafer seals, the process was excessively time consuming.
We suggested and implemented a system that uses a thin line hot-melt adhesive to seal the printed envelopes and flyers. This adhesive was able to seal the printed material along 75% of the joint, as opposed to the 1” covered by the wafer seals.
The client’s material costs dropped over 90%, saving over $13,000 a month with the new adhesive system. The cost of the equipment for the new system was covered in less than 6 months, and the client realized a 20% increase in production over the wafer seal process.
