Printed Double Sided Envelopes 1024 577 EGP-Admin

Printed Double Sided Envelopes

EGP are often asked to supply Printed Double Sided Envelopes, we have recently made dramatic improvements to this process. Feeding envelopes using our original feed table was awkward, the envelopes did not lie flat meaning we could only stack a small quantity at a time. We have now invested in specialist equipment that enables us to present a non-stop feed of envelopes to the press. As the envelopes arrive under the feed head they now lie perfectly flat, meaning they are much easier to feed. This enables us to print on both sides using the “perfecting” facility of our press to turn the envelope over during its travel through the machine. Allowing us to print the face and reverse of the envelope in a single pass at speeds up to 8,000 an hour. At the delivery end of the machine the delivery tray is replaced with a conveyor belt enabling the press to be run non stop. All of this can be seen in action in this video clip.

We are a proud supplier of printed stationary to Hertfordshire Police, who are delighted with the quality of our Printed Double Sided Envelopes.

Fascinating Print Facts

Here at EGP with love everything about print, its such a fascinating and amazing industry. Lunch times are often spent googling interesting facts over a sandwich. Following are some fascinating print facts, hopefully these will liven up your lunch break.

World’s Smallest Printed Book

A 22 page Japanese book containing pictures of the flowers of the four seasons holds a Guinness World Book of Records entry. It may be a fast read, but we don’t advise you doing so without a magnifying glass–unless you want to strain your eyes–because this is no ordinary book; it’s the world’s smallest printed book, 0.74 x 0.75 mm (0.0291 x 0.0295 in).

Largest Printed Catalogue

Remember when catalogues were the premier way to shop? People would spend hours pouring over the glossy pages. In 2005, Aviall Services Inc. released a behemoth that would put even the thickest catalogue to shame. They released their ‘Aviall Product and Catalog Book’ on January 3, 2005. It has 2,656 pages, weighs 7.4 lb (3.4 kg) and is 7.1 cm (2.8 in) thick.

Expensive Ink

The retail cost of black printer ink is one of the most expensive liquids on the planet, far exceeding oil and even space shuttle fuel (on a per gallon basis). It costs over $2,700 per gallon!

Edible Sushi

Chef Homaro Cantu, of Moto in Chicago, starting printing out delightful sushi entrees using a Canon i560 inkjet printer with edible ink in 2005. The son of an engineer, some of his customers have described him as a cross between a mad scientist and gourmet chef. Regardless their opinion, they find his imagination admirable–so much so that they’re willing to pay upwards of $240 for his experimental tasting menu.

If you own a printer, you know that searching for just the right one can take quite a bit of time. However, seeing the above fact in a printer’s specs might help to speed up your decision.

The HP Officejet Pro X Series printed 500 color sheets in a record seven minutes and 18 seconds.
