What is a "Pre-mailer"?
A Pre-mailer or Glue Bind Mailer is a form that has the edges of the sheet glued together to form a pocket. Usually it has a tear off return panel
that is mailed back in the “envelope pocket” similar to a Two-way Mailer.
Can ECS fold different types of "Pre-mailer" forms?
ECS can fold 3, 4 or 5 panels into a glued pocket with 1 or 2 perfs and a re-moisten gum strip all parallel with the folds. The piece can be double
parallel or roll folded.
What are the sheet size requirements for the folding equipment?
The minimum sheet width is 7" and the maximum sheet length is 22". If the sheet length is over 17 1/2", then it must be at least 8 1/2" wide.
Should ECS cut my stock to the one-up sheet size?
Because of critical panel sizes necessary for accurate folding, it is recommended that ECS trim your press sheet to one-up. Critical folding
register of pre-trimmed stock cannot be guaranteed. $70.00 per hour cutting charge will apply.
