A foil stamping machine uses heat and a metal die. This combined application allows the machine to firmly press the foil into the material you are stamping. Most foil stamping machines are manual, but there are options for automatic foil stamping machines that use air for operation.

Laminators are practical investments that are able to protect your documents and give them a polished appearance. Knowing the differences between laminating machines can help you choose the appropriate machine for you. The two most common types of lamination machines are roll laminators and pouch laminators. Each machine has their individual advantages and are ideal for different uses.

Roll Laminators

Roll laminators use rolls of film to laminate materials. They are useful for larger items, like banners or signs. They can also be used to laminate multiple smaller items at the same time. They are able to laminate materials that may be in odd sizes or shapes. Roll lamination machines help increase productivity because they are faster than pouch laminators. These machines are ideal for large materials or higher volumes of lamination. They are often used in copy centers, print shops, and schools.

Pouch Laminators

Pouch laminators use laminating film in a pouch format. You insert the desired document into the pouch and run it through the machine. These machines are exceptionally easy to use and are frequently used for photographs or standard sized documents. The initial lamination machine tends to be less expensive than a roll laminator, but the film is slightly more expensive. This makes pouch lamination ideal for lower volumes of lamination. Pouch lamination machines tend to be portable, which makes them especially convenient. They are commonly used for small businesses, personal use, photography studios, schools, and churches.

Lamination machines can be vital in protecting your documents. It can also help improve the overall appearance of the material. Lamination can be used to prevent sun damage from occurring to banners or keep them from fading over time. Here at ABC Office, we have a wide selection of lamination machines that are sure to meet your every lamination-related need!

Save Time and Money by Creating Your Own Custom Business Cards

Tuesday, April 10th, 2018

If you want to be able to create your own in-house business cards quickly and efficiently, I recommend you use a business card slitter. These slitters are far faster than using a pair of scissors or a pair cutter and create straight and accurate lines every time. One of the most affordable ways to do this is by using the the Akiles Cardmac Plus Electric and Manual Business Card Slitter.

I would like to cover exactly how the Cardmac Plus Business Card Slitter works. To begin with, this is a 10-up business card cutter. That means that it will cut 10 total business cards from a standard 8 ½” x 11″ sheet of paper. Ten up and 12-up are the two most common cutting patterns. There are 10-up business card templates available online in the event you don’t already have one. We also offer a 10-up templates.

Most people simply use their own computer and laser / inkjet printer to create the business cards. Using a 10-up template, data is entered such as contact information, logo and other pertinent information. Once these have been printed out, the can be cut down on the Cardmac Plus. Most people print their cards out on standard paper or light card stock. The Cardmac Plus can cut paper up to 350 GSM

Using the Cardmac Plus is extremely easy and anyone should be able to use it.

Creating a business card on this machine takes two steps. First you load your paper vertically in the machine and it will automatically feed it through the slitters. Once the paper has made its way through, you can take the two cut columns (two columns of 5 cards each) and insert them horizontally into the machine. This is where the sheets are cut into individual cards. I have used this machine and it is remarkably easy to use and I personally feel that the results turned out very well.

Here is a video demo of the Cardmac Plus business card cutter in action.

The Cardmac Plus is a great way to create custom business cards at a low economical price. For this price, and considering what you would otherwise have to pay at a print shop, this handy device will quickly pay for itself. You also can’t overlook the convenience factor on this machine. You can make your own business cards on the fly. You won’t ever have to worry about running out. While people may say business cards are a thing of the past, the fact is that they are still commonly used and won’t be going away anytime soon.

Please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-658-8788 for with any questions you may have about this machine. A comparable machine to the Cardmac Plus is the Akiles CardMac Pro. You can find our entire selection of business card slitters here.

Akiles CoilMac-EPI Plus 4:1

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

The Akiles CoilMac-EPI Plus 4:1  high-volume, quality coil binding machine engineered to withstand heavy use throughout the workday. We rarely receive complaints from customers about the Akiles CoilMac-EPI Plus 4:1

Over the years, however, I have been very impressed with how Akiles has been able to design a binding machine that has so many features to offer for such a modest price. When I entered the document finishing industry over 12 years ago, Renz was pretty much the dominant force in high-end coil binding machines. That prominence has changed since then, thanks to the determination of the product engineers from Akiles. They have not only successfully competed in the document binding machine market, but have surpassed their competition in several key areas.

Most coil binding machines punch round holes. The Akiles CoilMac-EPI Plus 4:1 does not. This unique electric coil-binding machine actually punches out oval-shaped holes with its built-in electric punch. This slight modification in hole design dramatically speeds up the coil insertion process. This allows for slightly more space for the coil to move within and reduces the frustration often encountered when coil and punched paper don’t always exactly match up. The machine’s 54 punch pins may be disengaged so that you can create custom-sized documents and books.

The Akiles CoilMac-EPI Plus 4:1, with rugged all-metal construction, boasts a high volume punch capacity of 25 sheets. This rating applies to 20 lb. standard copy paper. The punch motor has reverse anti-jam feature that helps you dislodge stacks of paper or covers that were too thick.

The machine also provides a full-length, heavy-duty electric coil inserter on the front of the unit for convenient coil insertion. The Akiles CoilMac-EPI Plus 4:1 comes with a built-in coil diameter selector and premium oval coil crimping pliers.

When you are ready to order your electric coil binding machine , be sure to mention this article to save an additional five percent!

Top 6 Best 8 ½” x 14″ and 11″ x 17″ Paper Joggers

Friday, January 11th, 2013

11" x 17" Paper JoggersIf you are jogging paper larger than your standard letter size document, you are probably going to need a slightly more robust and capable paper jogger than your standard run-of-the-mill design. At ABC Office we offer several paper joggers (found here) that can be used to handle both 8 ½” x 14″ legal size paper and large 11″ x 17″ documents. The model you choose will depend on how many sheets you need to jog and where the paper jogging will take place. I would like to recommend some of our highest-rated models in this article.

A paper jogger, for those of you unfamiliar with the technology, uses a motor to generate fast vibrations that quickly cause jumbled sheets of paper to re-align into a squared-up stacks. This helps keep paper organized when placing it in a copy machine, paper folder,  tabletop printer and in other paper handling machines. It also helps to eliminate static electricity and cuts down on jams. Some paper joggers also use air during the jogging process to help align pages and dry wet ink as they come out of a printing press.

At ABC Office, we offer paper jogging machines from such brands as Martin Yale, Lassco, Formax and MBM. All of the paper joggers we offer are great machines, but not all can be used with larger 11″ x 17″ paper. Over the years we have had a lot of luck with the following models.

Top 6 Best 8 ½” x 14″ and 11″ x 17″ Paper Joggers

  1. Lassco LJ-4 Paper Jogger (found here) – This is the least expensive of our large format paper joggers. It can handle paper up to 11″ x 17″ in size and up to 500 sheets at a time. We have had great luck with our Lassco brand paper joggers and they have proven themselves to be excellent products over the years. This jogger features a wood tray and sits at an angle for faster jogging. It is open sided for easy removal of paper.
  2. Formax FD 402P1 Paper JoggerFormax FD 402P1 Paper Jogger (found here) – Formax paper joggers are known for their metal build and solid construction. The Formax FD 402P1 can be used with larger 11″ x 17″ paper as well and features an open sided design. Unlike the Lassco LJ-4, this jogger has a large 800 sheet capacity and a variable speed motor.
  3. Formax FD 2054TA1 Air JoggerFormax FD 402TA1 Paper Jogger (found here) – If you need a jogger capable of handling paper up to 12″ x 18″ in size, the FD 402TA1 is the machine you are going to need. This is a table top air jogger that features a motor that runs at speeds of up to 2,500 vibrations per minute and air pressure capable of 29,000 rpm. The V shape of the bin encourages extremely fast jogging. This machine can hold up to 940 sheets of paper, making it one of the highest capacities we offer in a tabletop design.
  4. Martin Yale Premier 4200 Paper Jogger (found here) – The Martin Yale Premier 4200 is one of the largest joggers we offer. It has a 17″ x 23″ x 3″ bin that can be used to hold a variety of larger paper. The tray itself can be adjusted to sit at different angles. This includes an 80-degree upright layout to sitting almost flat. This is a tabletop machine and is very easy to set up and use.
  5. MBM AJ-700 Air JoggerMBM AJ-700 Air Jogger (found here) – If you jog large volumes of paper on a daily basis, you may need something like the MBM AJ-700 air jogger. This jogger forces air between sheets while jogging the paper, resulting in extremely fast results. The air also helps to assist in drying ink. This machine features an open sided design and a floor stand. It is very easy to use and is excellent for use in printing presses and much more. It can handle paper up to 12 7/8″ x 17 ¾” in side and the tray has a 4″ depth, allowing it to hold a lot of paper.
  6. Formax FD 402A Air JoggerFormax FD 402A Air Jogger (found here) – The Formax FD 402A is one of the most robust paper joggers available. It is highly adjustable and can be used with an included foot pedal for hands-free operation. Because it sits on casters, this floor model jogger can be wheeled around from one area to another. It includes a timer and can be used in air only or vibrate only modes. This jogger is excellent for use commercial applications.
