Custom Sheeting

Reduce Waste. Increase Production. Reduce Cost.

 

A custom fit makes sense. Custom sheeting is an innovative approach to paper buying that actually stretches the value of paper. It combines cost savings and productivity increases with natural resource efficiency. Our Custom Sheeting Centres are located in Toronto and Winnipeg.

 

Squeeze Principle

 

We call it the “Squeeze Principle”. For any job layout that doesn’t format to a standard sheet size, paper is wasted. Trim waste is discarded without ever being used, creating additional costs for businesses and their customers, and, underutilizing the value of products derived from our forests. By cutting to the ideal size of a job’s requirement from a master roll – squeezing – you are able to maximize a sheet’s printable area. This translates into real benefits for you.

1. Reduce Waste

By squeezing down closer to your print area, the amount of paper waste can be reduced by as much as 30%. Shave off inches and save tons! It takes roughly four trees to make one ton of paper.

2. Reduce Cost

The “squeeze” not only reduces waste, it reduces the amount of paper you purchase. By purchasing smaller sheets compared to mill standard size, you save money yet still get the same amount of finish product. Every inch trimmed equals approximately 3% saved on paper cost!

3. Increase Productivity

Custom sheeting products are shipped on press-ready skids that can be loaded directly onto the paper lift. You increase production by limiting the amount of time spent handling the product (trimming, stacking, and restacking) and, minimize the risk of injury to employees. Improve efficiency!
