For years Corporate Image has been working with healthcare and medical professionals to design presentation materials just for them.
Our focus is to create better designed pieces that last longer, have more design possibilities and are not the non-recyclable, toxic vinyl and plastic they had used in the past.
We have worked with the industry to create 3-ring binders, presentation binders and folders and kits and boxes for everything from patient information kits to medical device boxes – all 100% recyclable and strong!
So we were very excited to hear this:
Good news indeed for both employees and patients in hospitals! New measures are helping green healthcare furniture!
Naked Binder would like to applaud all of the Furniture manufacturers, Healthcare Facilities, Facebook and others who have pledged to eliminate these toxic chemicals from their businesses. (Now to pledge to eliminate vinyl binders?)
“We gain interested people through our online campaigns. We gain customers when we get our materials in their hands…”
Not using print materials is slowing you down even in the age of the internet.
People respond to tactile things. There is a deep need to feel, to touch, that stimulates different parts of the brain than visual stimulation alone. Even if you are a completely online company, the chances are you can gain more clients and customer by having print materials.
Print is an experience -The psychology of print
Perception is an active process. Touch includes information about you (e.g. your muscles, joints) as well as about what you are touching. To “be in touch with” a product, company or person is a primary urge. Our first intelligence is sensory refinement.
The experience of holding something in our hands changes how we perceive a product. Retail stores know that if you pick something up, you are much more likely to buy it. From Apple computers to clothing, stores are set up to engage you tactually and emotionally.
Printed materials offer a chance to present your brand quality, strength, and other qualities (eco friendly, glossy, solid, trustworthy) through a second channel. What you say can be backed up through more primal clues that reinforce and strengthen the logical arguments.
Print offers permanence
Corporate Image is a print manufacturer and 70% of our marketing is online marketing. What we understand is that we gain interested people through our online efforts, but we get customers when we get product and samples in their hands.
For you web pages, you get excited if people spend 1 minute or more on a page. The sad truth is, people surf and are very distracted online. It is a busy, shifting medium. A well designed print piece creates a more focused, concentrated way to engage your customer’s time and attention.
Once it is read, that information can sit on a shelf for reference. This shelf presence means you are always in front of your audience, even when the power goes out.
Print builds confidence
A beautifully printed piece shows that you have pride in your message, your product and your company. It can build your sales, give your sales people a great tool as well as generate interest in your company long after someone has forgotten your URL.
Whether you are showcasing building products for the contract industry, handing client’s financial information, or providing medical information, the experience and solidity of your marketing materials gives your customers confidence.

Their products have won awards from Best Binder in the World to GDUSA packaging awards and CMA awards. We specialize in 3-ring binders, pocket folders, presentation binders and boxes of all sorts.

Corporate Image takes sustainability seriously. For over 30 years, we have created world class products which are 100% recyclable, with no vinyls, no plastics. The binders board we use in our 3 ring binders is 100% post consumer waste and we can FSC certify your project if you wish. We also print with soy inks! We can help you meet or exceed your sustainability goals.
Corporate Image has been using 100% post consumer waste board for our binders for over 30 years. We have huge resources of recycled papers to match the look feel and print quality you need and nearly everything we run is FSC certified. On top of this, everything we make – from our 3 ring binders, pocket folders to sales boxes – is recyclable.
We believe in recycling as a way to protect our natural resources and prevent waste. But, when is it best to use recycled papers and when is it a greater impact? Sappi paper has a new resource for you.
Here is a first look on why it is important to recycle paper:
WASTE REDUCTION IS A FUNDAMENTAL TENET
There are many facets to recycling, from the process itself to the benefits and concerns. Sappi has worked to bring a resource that addresses many of these issues.
At Corporate Image we deal with paper all day and really love the flexibility of the medium. Admittedly, much of ours goes into packaging and presentation materials, but that doesn’t dampen our enthusiasm for other forms of paper art!
Brooklyn-based multimedia artist Michael Hambouz creates stunning cut-paper artwork, and thanks to The Durst Organization and chashama, 18 of his large-scale cut-paper collages are now on display until November 21, 2014, in the Lobby Gallery of 1133 Avenue of the Americas in New York City.
In a celebration of both cut-paper artwork and small-town manufacturing, Factory Made utilizes a 140-year-old French Paper Company’s own renowned paper stock to give viewers a rare glimpse into the operations of one of the last independently owned paper mills in America.
On View: September 10-November 21, 2014
And after you’ve seen Factory Made, make a day of cut-paper artwork by heading down the street to the Museum of Modern Art, where the blockbuster show Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs is on display until February 8, 2015.
- See more cut paper art!
For the last 20 years we have heard that the world is going paperless, and yet companies are printing materials all the time. So what is happening?
The Psychology of Print
People respond to physical, tactile materials. Look at books. Some people read on kindles or other devices, but for most people I know, the feel of the book, the weight and even the turning of pages are part of the experience of the book. Books are experiences, not a collection of words.
Your presentation and marketing materials are experiences. People respond to the craftsmanship and heft of quality objects in a way an email can not mimic.
Sometimes you just need printed materials.
Some industries need to make sure the information they produce is always available.
Healthcare- From patient files to forms, this industry is paper-intensive, and predicts to be even more so over the coming years. This is one industry that if the lights go out, that information needs to be in the patients hand and available.
Also, it is a lot more comforting to have the information to read in hand instead of just receiving a web address (“You need surgery – go to this website for more information.” is not what I would want to hear…)
Legal – Papers need to be signed, stamped, delivered, read and re-read. Imagine a wedding certificate as an email. Much less romantic.
Financial / Real Estate / Insurance – All these industries produce paper that you need to have access to. If you are investing in a house, stocks or a new business it is nice to have a strong, well made folder or binder to hold your papers. It builds confidence that the organization you are dealing with exists, is legitimate and is planning to be there for you.
Print is just one component of your marketing and presentation, but it is an important one. Companies are printing less, but smarter – creating stand out pieces that have great feel, outstanding print and graphics and work with their branding.
Less but better is the mantra. Maybe you used to print 40,000 pocket folders every year. Much of that was sent to prospects that were not very warm or even pulled from lists. Now you make 10,000 folders – beautiful, a little heavier paper, maybe soft-touch lamination for a great feel – and send them to better qualified prospects. Your returns are higher and your costs are lower. That quality difference will be noticed and pay off with the clients.
What to look for in your Print Manufacturer? Your Success.
You don’t want to align your company with cheap folders, 3 ring binders that fall apart or a box that won’t close, and yet that is often what you get.
A print manufacturer should stress quality, knowledge, service and have the internal design staff to help you get exactly what you want and need.
Corporate Image has been creating custom presentation materials – from 3 ring binders, pocket folders to boxes of all types – for over 30 years. We come from a book binding tradition that started over 150 years ago and developed into what we are today.
From winning “Best Binder in the World” to GDUSA packaging awards, we have delivered the quality products that help make our customers successful. We don’t rest on our laurels, Corporate Image is constantly creating new solutions that give you quality with other attributes you need. From our eco-friendly tuck lock boxes and glue-less pocket folders to the worlds strongest 3 ring binders (flexed 250,000 times without failing!), we give you quality that will help you shine.
Print is alive and well and still helping you stand out with your clients! Contact us to get more information on how we can help you!
Paper Weights are confusing.
As a print manufacturer Corporate Image deals in all kinds of paper stocks, but we find not all of our designers know all the nuances. Whether we make a printed 3-ring binder, a pocket folder or a cool sales box, paper stocks will vary heavily.
Lets look at this question which you might run into if you want to put a 3-ring binder in a sales box.
Question: If you have 18 pt. and 100# papers how do those compare?
First off, lets find out what it all means:
Now the question is how those translate.
Up above we were looking at 100# offset text vs 18pt stock. Actually these are pretty far apart. So as we look down the list, we see that 100# text paper is only about 6pt (listed as caliper on the chart). Much lighter paper, which you would expect. 18pt., as we find out, is a very sturdy stock – useful for strong pocket folders or paperboard boxes. 100# text is great for printing that might wrap your 3 ring binder.
Paper weights don’t have to be confusing. Now when you are working on a new design and printers are quoting papers, you can have an easy resource to ensure you know exactly what they are talking about.

One thought we had is that if you live in Seattle, or other traditionally damp areas, you may want to wax those panniers.
Thoughts from the packaging experts at Corporate Image:
Conclusion: 4 stars out of 5
Very cool idea and in a pinch to have this option at the grocery store would be amazing. As a branding opportunity it is great exposure and we can see these being used at bike rallies and grocery stores.

Sorry to get all Buzzfeed headline on you, but some projects are so special you just have to share.
We worked with Q2 down in Austin, Texas. What resulted is kind of special!
It starts with a corrugated slipcase with another corrugate box inside. Both of these are printed, laminated with soft touch laminate with lines of spot UV.
When you pull out the inside box, you have a tray with a paperboard box resting inside. This custom box matches exactly with the corrugate from the printing to the soft touch lamination and the spot UV.
Under that box is a book. A present in a present.
But wait. you are not done.
Inside the paperboard box is a pocket folder with a box pocket. This folder acts like a four flap enclosure (yes, one of our sister companies is Archival Products and in preservation they use a lot of four flap enclosures). Open the custom pocket folder and find a brochure (whose main image peeks out at you from a custom die cut in the folder).
Scroll down and check out the great design. Wouldn’t you be happy to get this presentation?

While we are known making the best 3-ring binders in the world, Corporate Image does a lot of other things equally as well.
Take this mailer for instance:
The Vision Council created these eye-catching mailers to send brochures. With a great look, natural matte finish and a simple folding style, these custom mailers are effective and affordable.
Custom four flap enclosure mailer specifications:
6-1/4” wide x 6” high four flap enclosure (flap redesigned with a squared closure) with a 1/4” spine with dust flaps to hold a brochure. Die #8661
Custom four flap enclosure mailer environmental benefits:
Ships Flat, saving money, space and fuel.
So why limit your exposure to PVC?
Our sister company Naked Binder makes off the shelf eco friendly 3-ring binders and pocket folders and has done a lot of research on vinyls, plastics and the environment. Corporate Image has been printing with soy inks, using recycled papers and board and making custom recycled and recyclable 3-ring binders, pocket folders and boxes for nearly 30 years. Together we plan to make recyclable 3-ring binders and folders the standard, eliminating tons of vinyl waste in our landfills, offices and homes.
Why you ask? So happy you did!
No other plastic contains or releases as many dangerous chemicals. These include dioxins, phthalates, vinyl chloride, ethylene dichloride, lead, cadmium, and organotins. There’s no safe way to manufacture, use or dispose of PVC products
In You and your food. As a persistent bioaccumulative toxin (PBT), it does not breakdown rapidly and travels around the globe, accumulating in fatty tissue and concentrating as it goes up the food chain. Dioxins from Louisiana manufacturing plants migrate on the winds and concentrate in Great Lakes fish. Dioxins are even found in hazardous concentrations in the tissues of whales and polar bears and in Inuit mother’s breast milk. The dioxin exposure of the average American already poses a calculated risk of cancer of greater than 1 in 1,000 – thousands of times greater than the usual standard for acceptable risk. Really scary is that dioxins concentrate in breast milk to the point that human infants now receive high doses, orders of magnitude greater than those of the average adult.
Air pollution near plants: In Mossville, Louisiana, air monitoring conducted by the US Environmental Protection Agency in 1999 showed concentrations of vinyl chloride more than 120 times higher than the ambient air standard.
Working in plants: Studies have documented links between working in vinyl chloride production facilities and the increased likelihood of developing diseases including angiosarcoma of the liver, a rare form of liver cancer, brain cancer, lung cancer, lymphomas, leukemia, and liver cirrhosis.
The multitudes of additives required to make PVC useful make large scale post consumer recycling nearly impossible for most products and interfere with the recycling of other plastics. Of an estimated 7 billion pounds of PVC thrown away in the US, only 14 million – less than 1/2 of 1 percent – is recycled. The Association of Post Consumer Plastics Recyclers declared efforts to recycle PVC a failure and labeled it a contaminant in 1998. We tried. Learn more about how that went.
Although vinyl is in theory recyclable, there are currently no vinyl recycling programs available. The vast majority of PVCs end up in landfill or incinerated – and both are environmentally hazardous. Currently 0.1% to 3% of vinyl is recycled (mostly industrial waste) of the 2 billion and 4 billion pounds of PVC that is discarded in the US every year.
PVC poses a great risk in building fires, as it releases deadly gases long before it ignites, such as hydrogen chloride which turns to hydrochloric acid when inhaled. As it burns, whether accidentally or in waste incineration, it releases yet more toxic dioxins. PVC burning in landfill fires may now be the single largest source of dioxin releases to the environment. If you see the former entry about recycling, with the approximately 8400 landfill fires every year in the US, this is an issue.

Paperboy wines are packaged in a unique molded paper ‘bottle’ with a plastic bladder inside to hold the wine. The paper wrapper is easily recyclable (though they do not say the bladder is).
While glass is completely recyclable most glass doesn’t get recycled for some reason and these paper and plastic bottles have the added benefit of being a lot lighter, saving in cost and fuel to ship, and making it easier to carry around. Now to be quite honest, I would still balk at carrying something like this into the back country (at 1.9 lbs it weighs a bit too much for me), but I am very tempted to go get a bottle to bring to a friends house.

Have questions about the savings in weight vs the non- recyclability of the plastic bladder?

Why go with Printed Tab Dividers?
Printed tab dividers add a huge amount of punch to your 3-ring binders or sales boxes.

Marketing materials – from in-house information binders to sample kits – say as much about your company as the information in them.
There are a lot of manufacturers and printers out there who can do some things well, but when you start working on your marketing materials you don’t want to be limited by the few things they can do.
Corporate Image has been making quality marketing and presentation materials for almost 30 years. From 3 ring binders (voted best in the world) to pocket folders, sales boxes, sample kits and tab dividers, Corporate Image has the highest quality and largest range.
Our in house packaging designers can make sure you exceed your expectations. Need to show 120 tiles? No problem. Window sashes? Sure. Patient information kits? Absolutely. We can create a solution for your needs or use one of the many hundreds of dies that we already have.
Corporate Image is a green FSC certified printer. We can spec papers up to 100% post consumer waste and use soy inks. Our products can all be FSC certified. If you need a fully eco friendly 3-ring binder or pocket folder we have a range of options for you.

Should your Sales Boxes and Marketing Kits be corrugate boxes or paper board?
When you are looking for boxes for sales kits, information packets or sample marketing kits it helps to know more about your materials, possibilities and printing options.
The world of boxes is vast – do you need a corrugate box to help architectural samples or a heavy paper stock that can hold patient information kits or a bottle of perfume?
Looking for a sales box or marketing kit but not sure what you need?
You have a few choices and if you want to stick to recyclable materials the best are corrugated boxes or paperboard boxes. These both have advantages so if you need a custom marketing kit, sales box or sample presentation kit a quick read may be in order.
Lets break it down.
E-flute, single faced, double wall – all of these are corrugates and all of them have interesting properties and uses for your design projects.
The main thing you get from corrugates is strength. If you need a sturdy box to hold samples or need to convey a greater sense of solidity with your brand, corrugates may be the way to go.
Printing and more:
The best quality printing (4cp +) is done on a C1S (coated 1 side) sheet which is run through an offset press and then adhered to the corrugate. There are also options of foil stamping and debossing and direct printing.
Die Cuts and Custom Dies
Corruagate cuts well, so the shape of your box, window cuts, custom closures and flaps are all possibilities.
Printed heavy paper stocks can be made into an amazing array of boxes for anything from patient information kits for healthcare to financial portfolio or organizational kits and more.
Customizing Paperboard Boxes:
These stocks print like a dream, so you have the same wide range of options from 1 color PMS to 4cp+ and spot varnishes.
Printing two sides is also not a problem, allowing your to have the inside of your box as well branded as the outside.
Die Cuts and Custom Dies:
Corporate Image has a wide range of sales box and paperboard box dies to choose from already, but if you have a need for custom windows or looks, you can work with our package designer to get what you need.
It used to be that eco friendly was code for poorly made. Not anymore.
Eco friendly marketing materials (from 3-ring binders and pocket folders to tab dividers and sales boxes) are better value, better quality and better for your image.
For the last 3 years the 3-ring binder voted best binder in North America (and once Best Binder in the World) was a Corporate Image binder. Our products offer a greater range of printing and customizing opportunities and an amazing look, feel and range of possibilities.
Greener, eco friendly materials and practices.
Corporate Image is a green FSC certified printer who has been using soy based inks for over 20 years. Our binders are made with 100% post consumer waste board, our papers use recycled content and the entire binder is recyclable.
Along with using recycled materials, our products are built to last. One of our bare board binders (from Naked Binder – our eco friendly office supply company) was tested to 250,000 flexes without fail. That means you can open and close that binder 20 times a day for 34 years. Try that with vinyl.
Marketing materials show who you are as a company – what you believe, how you practice and how well you will perform. Corporate Image believes in what we do, and we take pride in making the best pocket folders, binders and boxes you can find. From our printing and packaging designers to construction and shipping, we make sure you are getting what you want and more.
Corporate Image sets the standard that other manufacturers are trying to meet.

They’re known by different names, but are the same great product
We call them Sales Boxes, but they’re often referred to as Sales Kits and Sales Totes and on occasion Marketing Kits. What they have in common is that they are a smart presentation solution from Corporate Image. Economical and easy to assemble, they are designed to ship flat, saving warehouse space and reducing storage and production costs. There are different closure options available: with our tuck-lock closures, you simply fold the scores, then tuck in the locking tabs. With our Velcro option, you can choose between black or white Velcro dots that adhere to the flap. Add a set of tab dividers to organize the contents and you have a complete kit. Boxes up to 2 inches deep are printed on sturdy 18- or 24-point stock. They are a great way to store diverse contents.
Need a large Sales Box or a box that is really sturdy? Use our Corrugated Sales Box. We’ll print and either laminate or varnish a litho sheet, then apply it to a sturdy E-Flute corrugate, producing a great looking box.
The outside of your presentation helps sell what’s inside
Corporate Image specializes in creating custom packaging that holds materials for presentations and proposals. In fact, our printing presses are dedicated to printing folders, boxes and custom binders and not what goes inside the package. This keeps us focused on printing and producing the best possible products to represent your company and make you standout in the marketplace.
