Custom Pocket Folders with Capacity

Sometimes you need more room in a pocket folder.

A standard pocket folder has no spine, limiting how much paper you can fit into the pockets (about 20 sheets). Sometimes that is not enough.  If you need more room you have several options that can help you get what you need without breaking the bank.

Capacity Pocket Folders

high capacity custom pocket folders - corporate image

For those of you who have larger information needs but don’t need a binder, a capacity pocket folder is the way to go.

A capacity pocket folder has two scores at the spine so the spine can be more than a single flat score.

Depending on the pockets you chose and the spine width (1/4 inch is fairly standard), you can fit much more information as well as having better shelf presence by branding the spine. Inside the capacity pocket folder you have more to think about. Depending on what you need, you can have box pockets (either vertical or horizontal).

 

 

Expandable Pocket Pocket Folders

custom pocket folders with high capacity - corporate image

An expandable pocket allows you to use the same folder for a meeting with 10 sheets of paper and a conference with 50.

One of the benefits of this pocket is that the folders can ship flat.  A box pocket is amazing, but takes a lot of space resulting in larger shipping costs and more storage space.

Upgrade Your Current Pocket Folder with a Custom Folder

 Corporate Image produces pocket folders that really stand out. With a huge range of pocket folder templates to choose from, and product designers who can help you customize to fit your needs you can always get what you need!

Customize your pocket folder with foil stamping, embossing, debossing and custom die-cuts, as well as aqueous coating, varnish, spot UV printing, PMS and full 4 color printing. Our laminates range from gloss, semi-gloss, and soft touch (which adds a tactile silky feel to your folder).

In addition to our standard 1 and 2 pocket folders, we offer folders with file tabs, folders with capacity, glueless folders with a box pocket and tri-folders. Standard business card cuts and brochure cuts can be added to horizontal folder pockets at no charge.  We have a standard or custom folder to fit every budget and every business.

Great 3-ring Binder Designs

Design Projects of the Month: June 2016  – 3-ring Binders

Showing the great products that go through our production facilities is one of our great pleasures. We see so much amazing design that is inspiring to designers across North America.

This month, our binder picks went to three very different projects. Gray’s Tied House created small, mini binders to be used as bar menus. Kathleen Leonard, who sells beautiful high end real estate in Sonoma and Napa counties in California, went with a lovely short run binder. Our third pick is a new product we are releasing! We now make tabloid size printed binder and architect folders (sample books for architects that hold flooring, textile, tile, glass and other building samples) up to 54″ long.

Check them out and learn more about them!

A pocket folder doesn’t have to be boring. From vertical pockets, custom closures, window cuts, and unique designs, a pocket folder can be a brilliant piece of design.

Corporate Image offers a wide range of options that take your pocket folder from ordinary to extraordinary.

Closures.

From tuck flap closures to velcro, Corporate Image can help keep your pocket folder information safe. A portfolio pocket folder has a flap that wraps around the open end of a pocket folder helping to keep your information safe. We have designed folders with many unique closures to match our customers brand!

Need a pocket folder that leaves an impression? We can help!

DORMA makes sliding door systems, so they wanted the closure on the folder to mimic their products. This folder has a sliding panel that velcros down to close the “door” on the folder. The result is unique, eye catching and leaves a lasting impression on everyone who picks it up!

Sustainable pocket folders.

When your company demands the most sustainable pocket folders in the world, you can turn to our glue-less pocket fiddlers. The pockets close with tuck flaps to form horizontal or vertical pockets, and as the name implies,  so there is no glue involved in manufacturing this folder. What results is an elegant pocket folder that clearly speaks about who you are as a company and your values.

sustainable, recyclable, cool pocket folders - corporate Image

A Pocket Folder with Room.

One pocket folder can handle all of your needs, from 1 sheet of paper to 50.

An expandable pocket folder can take care of a wide range of needs with an ingenious system that allows you to pull out the pocket to 1/4″ capacity when needed.

If you always need a lot of paper or a catalog to go into your pocket folder, a box pocket offers a strong platform for information you know is always going to be there. For booklets or brochures, conference information pieces, and proposals, a box pocket offers the room to handle what you need

How to make a Graphic Designer happy.

A: Make their life easier.

Graphic designers work long hours for customers who have vague and changing idea of what they need and want. Generally, by the time a project is ready to go, there is a rush because of last minute changes.

Sound familiar?

Our sales team have over 50 years of collective experience in printing processes, materials, coatings, sizing and finishing techniques and will work to get you what you want when you need it. We can send samples and even mock-ups of new products to test sizing and fit.

You will also get custom templates to make art set ups easy. Did something change in your design brief? Our in-house product design team can re-design, re-size and work with you to match your new specifications.

As an employee owned business, each and every one of our owner / employees watches out to make sure your project is perfect – from printing to packing – so you don’t have to worry about last minute “surprises” when your customer opens their order.

Let us help make your life easier, whether you have a project going on now, or want some information for the future. Find out more!

Spot UV – Add excitement to your print pieces

Spot UV – Add excitement to your print pieces

custom portfolio binder with closures

UV coatings are one of the range of print finishes and textures that you can use to make your art jump off of the page (or binder). We have found that a lot of designers haven’t worked with these finishes a lot, so we are offering a little series on print finishes.

What is spot UV and how can I use it on my binders, folders, and boxes?

UV (ultraviolet) Coatings start as a clear liquid that is dried or cured with an ultra violet light. This is printed in-line on a UV press. This is often seen in a gloss or matte, though it is available in textures (like sandpaper among others). While you can flood an entire piece with UV, we most often see it used in spot coverage, highlighting text and images, or in the case of the image below, the spot UV creates the design elements of the folder.  Subtle, but effective.

Printed, sustainable pocket folder with spot UV - Corporate Image

If you are printing a pocket folder, binder or box, you are probably laminating your materials to protect the whole piece from the rough and tumble life marketing materials go through. The nice thing about spot UV is that it can be applied after the lamination offering more opportunities to pop your art even more.

Liners: Get the Most out of Your Printed 3-ring Binders

The liner of a 3-ring binder is not just a blank space that the interior pages cover, it is a rich design space that adds life, information and interest to your design project.

Good things to know about 3 ring binder liners:

  1. When you are printing more that 250 binders, they print of our offset printing press.  This means that a matching fully printed liner is FREE at Corporate Image. Say you have a 4 color process cover, print the liner 4cp at no extra cost!
  2. People see the cover on the shelf, and when the binder is closed on a desk. People see the liner when they are looking at your information. The chances are they will spend a lot more time looking at the liner than the cover of your binder!

printed custom 3 ring binder liners - corporate image

Printing architectural folders for flooring or carpet samples? Your information, product placement guides, specs and more are part of your liner. Ringless binders, or sample folders, are just one way a printed binder liner can help reinforce your message.

Medical and Pharmacuetical Industries Going Sustianable

We at Corporate Image were excited to see a shift in how industries are viewing their responsibility to their communities and the future.

This article was in GreenBiz.com, talks about Bayer Corp. doing exactly what we have been doing – creating circular supply chains where the components in one product can eventually be used again in another (also known as cradle to cradle design).

Thirty years ago, a U.S. offshoot of German pharmaceutical giant Bayer was just coming to grips with the environmental ills that can accompany production of industrial materials.

The operator of a 270-acre chemical plant in West Virginia, which came to be known as Bayer MaterialScience, was tasked in 1987 with undertaking corrective action to prevent “unacceptable exposure” to carcinogenic contaminants found in soil and water at the site, accordingEnvironmental Protection Agency reports.

But that was then. In September, a newly-independent version of the $12 billion Bayer materials business called Covestro was launched with a goal of pulling off a re-brand with sustainability at the core of 2,000-plus product offerings in industries including transportation, construction, electronics and textiles.

“This is an industry that has a legacy of damage to the environment,” said Covestro Chief Sustainability Officer Richard Northcote. “It’s a bit like, ‘My name’s Richard, and I’m an alcoholic.’ Until you say that, you’re never going to improve, but we are not the same industry we were 50 years ago.”

The opportunity that Covestro sees in prioritizing sustainability is what many predict will be an upheaval in the materials that serve as the basis of the industrialized economy.

With business risks like climate change and supply chain volatility reinforcing the urgency of using raw materials wisely and curbing emissions in the manufacturing process, the concept of a “circular economy” where component parts are cycled back through supply chains is one approach gaining traction.

We applaud Covestro and Bayer for working toward and prioritizing sustainability in their manufacturing!

Why print? People respond to it.

print facts - news and discussion on print materials - Corporate Image

This is part of our ongoing discussion about print in the modern age. This article is from MPA and talks a bit about how print connects in the mind.

Print engages the mind differently.

Here is an article that suggests that when people read print, they read more carefully, which benefits you with a more focused potential customer.

Everyone in marketing has by now heard of haptic marketing – the idea of appealing to the sense of touch to stimulate areas of the brain that influence decision making (that is the thumbnail description). Print fits that bill. Research has shown the physical act of turning pages results in the brain better encoding the information so you can remember it.

the benefits of print - Corporate Image

The article was created by MPA, the association of magazine media, so I don’t claim it is completely unbiased, but there have been many studies out that have had similar results.

Corporate Image is a print manufacturer in Des Moines Iowa. Employee owned, we have manufactured top quality custom 3-ring binders, pocket folders, boxes and packaging for over 35 years.

Getting the job done.

We love what we do. Everyday we get to work with talented people to produce beautiful materials that help others succeed in their businesses.

Corporate Image is 100% employee owned, so we take our work very seriously, some might say we are obsessive, but you can always count on us to give our best to every project.

Customer Service

Getting the job done right starts with your first phone call to us. You’ll work with a single point person at Corporate Image. That’s why we have experienced sales representatives and customer service managers focusing on helping you create the materials that best meet your needs. Your sales representative will help you navigate our process start to finish and in addition provide:

Samples — We don’t expect you to buy something without seeing the kind of work you’ll get. So, we’re happy to send samples. But, please keep in mind that our samples are current job overruns, so we may not have printed samples of a specific style on hand. Current samples of our work can be viewed on our project gallery.
Or for the real thing … call us and we’ll put samples in your hands.

Estimates — Naturally time is of the essence in communications and sales, so we’ll turn your quotes around as quickly as possible. Generally within 24 hours on standard items. However, additional time may be required for custom projects or large quantities. Our prices are based on the information provided at the time of the estimate. If specifications change for any reason, our estimate will be revised to reflect the new criteria. And we’ll seek your approval on the new cost. Hey, nobody likes surprises.

Digital Templates — When you’re ready to begin the final design phase of the project, we’ll email a template to you. This ensures that your final product will match your design and eliminates the worry about critical details like score lines, glue strips, tuck flaps and die-cutting tolerances.

Artwork Preparation — We’ll provide all the production specifications and information you may need for the project. We can output your digital files from a disk or you may upload files to our FTP site. Please provide a full set of laser proofs or a PDF of your final art.

Proofs — We’ll generate a digital proof for your approval. And we’ll mock up the end product so that you can get a precise idea of what you’re getting. If need be, we can send a PDF proof as well. We’ll work with you to get what you need as efficiently as possible.

Press Checks — We welcome press checks. Just let your sales representative or customer service manager know in advance if you wish to press check your job. We’ll do our best to accommodate your schedule.

Quantity/Scheduling — The minimum quantity order is 50 or 250 pieces depending on product and printing type. Once you’ve approved your proof and returned it to us, your sales representative or customer service manager will contact you with a ship date. We generally ship within 10 days of art approval, often much less.

Design Support

We’re here for you with a team of talented package designers that can help on any aspect of your project. We love a challenge. So, let’s collaborate on something really special.

Custom Prototypes — We’ll help sell your idea. There’s no charge for producing an initial prototype of a custom product, built to your specifications. Multiple copies for presentations are available for a small fee.

Accounting

Bean counters. We love them because they understand numbers and they’ll make sure the payables process works smoothly and efficiently.

Credit Policy — If you’re a new customer, a credit application is needed before a job can go into production. Please allow adequate time to complete the process. Pre-payment may be needed, especially for first-time orders. We also accept Master Card, Visa and American Express.

Overruns or Under runs — You will be invoiced for the exact quantity of product shipped, not to exceed 10% over or under the quantity you have ordered.

Payment Terms — Jobs are invoiced the day they ship. Payment is required within 30 days from the date of invoice.

We’re here for you.
