After launching a variety of new products in our product portfolio at the end of January, we are now continuing this expansion process just in time for the beginning of spring. New materials, products and assortments available from SAXOPRINT are proverbially shooting out of the ground as outdoor temperatures rise. For example we are giving you two further alternatives for letterheads, flyers and co with our new uncoated paper and recycling paper. I am also going to introduce you to new product formats and our extended range of multimedia print products. Prepare to be surprised, as there is something interesting for every taste and application.
As an environmentally-friendly print shop we treat our main material paper as efficiently as possible. Alongside the opportunity to have your print products produced in a climate-neutral manner, we are now going a step further with natural paper and recycling paper and are optimising our environmentally-friendly range. Furthermore our 120gsm copy paper is now available for even more product groups, so you can have your fantastic print product produced even more individually at SAXOPRINT. Below I have listed some characteristics of the two new types of paper – uncoated natural paper and recycling paper.
Our new uncoated natural paper is one of the classic types of paper as it is timeless and perfectly suited for many different types of requirements. With its natural whiteness it offers the perfect contrast to the colours of your design. The smoothed surface supports the faithful rendering of the colour spectrum and conveys a classic feel.
Incidentally all paper is described as uncoated paper which is not additionally coated via the application of coating following production. Uncoated natural paper therefore provides your print media with a vivid and high-quality feel. The fibres used in uncoated natural paper have a special structure and therefore guarantee high stability.
There are three grammages available for our uncoated natural paper. We offer a wide spectrum as the paper is smoothed and wood-free with a volume of 1.2 (80gsm and 160gsm) and volume of 1.1 (250gsm). Letterheads, flyers, folded leaflets, business cards and greeting cards can now also be produced with the positive, environmentally-conscious image of uncoated natural paper. It is also worth noting that the grammages 80gsm and 160gsm are also suitable for laser, inkjet and pre-print applications.
As it is not enough just to point out the challenges of environmental protection, we now provide an even more resource-saving and sustainable printing material with our new recycling paper. With this material it is possible to bridge the gap between quality and environmentally-conscious actions. This is reaffirmed by Blue Angel and EU Ecolabel accreditation.
Our recycling paper is an uncoated and silk surface-sized paper which is characterised by high whiteness and volume. It is made from 100% recycled fibre and therefore guarantees lower environmental pollution than paper which is produced from virgin fibre. 70% of energy and water consumption is saved compared with conventional paper production and we also dispense with the use of optical brighteners and chlorine.
The silk and reflection-free surface makes the paper perfect for large areas of text and also in combination with light ink application. Recycling paper is made completely of recycled waste paper so this paper is ready for a comeback as letterheads, flyers, folded leaflets, greeting cards and business cards. You can obtain the positive, environmentally-conscious image of recycling paper from us in the grammages 80gsm, 170gsm and 250gsm.
As you know we have already been offering your many alternatives to the classic formats for some time now. For individual projects and print products a wide variety of sizes and formats are often indispensable so we are delighted to announce that our products have been complimented by further formats. I will now introduce you to the new formats.
Our square formats now include the size known as the Q5 format. In the format 148 x 148 mm you can now have flyers, folded leaflets, brochures and postcards printed by SAXOPRINT. If you require folded leaflets in this special format you can order the slim 4 pager, the modern z-fold, the classic letterfold or the enchanting gate fold. You can still order brochures in the closed format 148 x 148 mm with staple binding and loop binding, spiral binding and high-quality perfect binding.
Completely new design possibilities are offered by our new ad poster formats. They are now available in a slim version and can be placed in confined spaces. The form factor of the posters and ad posters in A2 Long and A1 Long format bring to mind something of the long design of our roll ups. Of course the paper print media can also be designed and printed in landscape format. The dimensions of these two new formats are defined as follows:
As I have already mentioned, exceptional projects and plans often require more specialised paper and formats. We have also extended the latter for our postcards. Alongside the classic postcard format A6 (148 x 105 mm) you can now choose from two square formats, the new DL small format and two oversized formats. The following list gives you an overview of our postcard formats:
This range of formats opens up a multitude of possibilities for you. All of these postcard sizes are available to you in paper grammages of 250gsm to 400gsm with a high-quality feel. For the shipping options of these universal formats we ask you to take account of the regulations of your shipping provider with regard to format and material.
DL describes several similar formats for envelopes, which were originally intended for the sending of A4 writing paper folded twice crosswise, and for further insert formats which were suitable for these envelopes. With the introduction of the paper format DL Small we are fulfilling the wishes of many of our customers to extend the classic standardised format with the dimensions 105 x 210 mm with a slightly narrower counterpart.
Therefore you can also order your flyers, folded leaflets, menus and beverage lists (simple and folded), as well as greeting cards and postcards in the (closed) formats 99 x 210 mm and 100 x 210 mm from SAXOPRINT. All existing types of fold in the respective product categories are offered in the DL small formats 99 mm and 100 mm. Both variations are also very popular in international markets.
There are also two new additions to our range of multimedia print products: DVD inserts and booklets which we also produce in DVD format. DVD inserts and booklets can add to the content of the DVD case, also known as the keep case. The packaging for DVDs introduced in the middle of the 90s is also known by the name DVD Videobox or Amray after the name of the manufacturer of these cases.
The keep case for DVDs offers the opportunity to hold a cover, also known as inlay card due to its secondary function for the inner design, in the standard size 273 mm × 183 mm and booklets in the standard size 120 mm × 180 mm). The latter includes further information about the content of the DVD and can be ordered from SAXOPRINT with between 2 and 60 pages. As you know there are DVDs on the market with different content so the booklets in text and image form can provide further information about the film, concert, video game or in handbook form about the computer software. As is often the case there are many different ways to convey the message of the product with the aid of a print product.
