Converting/Printing Guidelines > Adjustable Die  
  1. Envelope printing can be to the edge of the sheet of paper, can be butted together on order to maximize the use of the sheet. By printing to the edge of the sheet, this will reduce the number of straight knife cuts. Additional charge and time will be incurred.
  2. Bleeds must extend 1/8”. Some designs will require a wrap to the other side of the envelope.
  3. One Die Guide Sheet is required for every 250 sheets. Please use Die Guide template.
  4. Mark gripper and guide on order.
  5. Pack die guide sheets on top of box or skid and clearly mark location.
  6. All orders must be delivered with minimum of 1,000 envelopes over per lot or 12% (which ever is greater). Matte stocks, translucent stocks, and window envelope orders may require more over. Please call to discuss.
  7. A Purchase Order or work sheet with specifications must be included with order as well as a sample (folding dummy).
  8. Metallic inks, varnish, aqueous coating or UV must be knocked out of the glue area.
  9. When converting booklet envelopes, the top flap must fold with the grain. When converting open end envelopes, the top flap must fold cross grain.
  10. Due to the wide variety of different papers on the market today, many sheets will crack, wrinkle or otherwise convert poorly due to the nature of the sheet itself. We are not responsible for printed stock if ink is not able to withstand roll or blade pressures that leads to smears/offsetting when converting or if glue does not adhere to printed areas that were not knocked out.
  11. Traditional adjustable die cutting results in variations of print positions on envelopes. This is especially noticeable when there is a bleed to the edge, thus the need for the 1/8” bleed. For a more precise cut, please ask about our steel rule cutting option.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call before any work is started.
