In the main we use Polypropylene and PVC. Polypropylene is rigid material used for boxes, binders, signs, and die cut shapes. PVC is a softer plastic used mostly for wallets, binder, folders and pockets. We also manufacture products from Polycarbonate and HDPE and a variety of other plastic sheet.

We have no minimum quantity, however the more products there are, the more economically viable it will be.

We are happy to quote on any quantity, no job too big or too small. We do have a minimum order value, which is $100.

Full colour print (4 colour process), Screen printing, Foil blocking and embossing. Explanations of these print types are available in the ‘Tech Talk’ section of our website.

We recycle all of our polypropylene and PVC waste. We recycle all waste paper and cardboard. Our manufacturing process creates no emissions or bi-products. We are always looking for new ways to become greener and to reduce waste even further.

If the metal is a ‘D’ ring (shaped like an upper case D) you measure the height of the straight edge of the D.

If the metal is an ‘O’ ring (shaped like a circle or an O) you measure across the widest part of the O.

All measurements are internal and are in millimetres.

As a general rule 50 sheets of 80 gsm paper will be 5 mm thick. So using this rule you will need at least 5 mm of capacity for every 50 sheets of 80 gsm paper.
