Automate has helped our customers create the most bold and creative booklets for over 10 years. We offer such options as die cutting, shape cutting, custom coatings, perferation and more.
We can also add custom options such as saddle stitching up to 21 sheets. Our booklets have one of the fastest turn arounds in the business and can be trimmed to specifications. Automate will be sure to stay within your budget and will always use our expertise to guide you when necessary.
At Automate, we are experts at standard and custom folds for brand materials. We can create brochures with multiple folds to display a variety of services and products in great detail.We can even simplify things with a bi-fold design that gets right to the point.
Our gate fold services use a z-fold (6 panel) or even an accordion fold (8 panel) to incorporate designs that utilize the entire sheet of paper. Some designs require even more customized folds such as map folds or french folds or even the standard tri fold to get your message across.
Perferation / Scoring
If you need high quality perferation, scoring or even die cuts, we can help! Simple perferation is the process of making a line of holes in to facilitate separation. Often this is used to create a Business Reply Card where one half of the card will be torn off and mailed back to the mailer. It can also be used for tickets, forms, custom jobs, you name it!
A score is used to put a crease in paper to help it fold better. We can do off-line scoring and folding or perferate for coupons or tickets. If you require more custom services such as micro perfing or numbering we can do those as well.
Color / Black & White Copies
Automate provides a wide range of digital copying needs. Whatever the size job you have, whether its black and white or color, small format or oversize document reproduction, we have the expertise and equipment to complete your job.
Die Cuts / Custom Cutting
Are you looking for a way for your product to "stand out"? Our die cut services can set your piece apart from the competition. We can do rounded or even custom cuts from the simplest to the most complex of cuts. We can accomidate a variety of sizes and paper types to customize your piece.
Envelope / Brochure Tabbing
Automate provides tabbing services for folded documents to insert into envelopes. This service is mandatory for certain types of folded brochures depending on the location of the folded or bound edge. We can also do clear or matte tabs or even apply live stamps.
