This process allows us to produce high quality printed cartons. You supply high resolution printed sheets on 250 gsm grey back or similar – with or without film lamination.
We mount to single face E or B Flute before die / forme cutting and gluing if required.
Note: Gloss or Matt Cello sheen can help provide a gloss or matt finish plus increase the cartons durability and prevent cracking. You can also have Brown, Kraft or White on the inside of the / sheet box.

When producing cartons and folders, grain direction is very important as to how true it will fold. Please check with Mathew or Stewart when planning your layout.
Automatic Taping is the ability to automatically apply double sided tape to point of sale products such as ‘Wobblers’ or “Shelf Talkers” and presentation products at very high speeds.
It will save in both time and labour costs by automatically feeding a stack of products into the application system and applying the double-sided tape. It is highly accurate and durable.
StockA carton gluer is belt driven and not gripped as in the case of printing and cutting machinery, therefore the stock weight is essential. Once again there are variations to the rule but generally speaking 200 gsm 2 sided art would be the gluing machines minimum.
Another important point is that a printed job going through a gluer should be varnished or coated (excluding glue areas) to protect the print from smudging or scuffing especially in the case of slow drying inks.
Finally glue flap size is most important and a minimum of 15mm is preferred, where possible you should leave glue flaps and glue areas free of ink, varnish and coating.
There are a number of other products that are gluable and an enquiry to CP Gluing would be recommended to answer any questions.
