Revolutionizing Short Run Digital Packaging: With Our New Die Cutting Machine!

Here at Markham Litho/ Candz Print, we are thrilled to announce that we are now able to provide our clients with short-run packaging and digital die cutting services!  This exciting news comes as a result of our recent acquisition of cutting-edge equipment, specifically the IN-Cut DC 8060 Flat Bed Digital Die Cutter, for our print production facility in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Superior Speed and Accuracy

The IN-Cut DC 8060/LST Max series cutting plotter is renowned for its superior speed and accuracy. With its DSP control center and digital servo motor, this cutting plotter is capable of handling a wide range of tasks with precision. It features two tool-holders on the head, allowing compatibility with cutting knives, scoring tools, and plotting pens. This versatility enables us to work with various paper stocks, making it perfect for cutting, plotting, and creasing tasks.

The addition of the 8060 cutting plotter to our facility means that we can save time and reduce costs, compared to traditional die cutting methods,  while processing cardboards, paper, PVC, film, stickers, and more. Moreover, its maximum cutting depth of up to 1.5mm (1/16") ensures that it can accommodate different material densities. 

Our New Process

In terms of our short-run digital packaging process, we are prepared to guide you through every step.

We can assist in creating the digital dieline and design for your packages. Once the files are created and approved, they will be printed using our high-quality card stock, namely invercoat, on our Konica Minolta Accurio Digital Press to make your design truly shine. Following the printing process, the sheets will then be sent to our state-of-the-art DC 8060 for digital die cutting. Once the die cutting is complete, any necessary gluing will be done, and the packages will finally be packaged up for delivery.

Our services are not limited to the GTA; we offer delivery across Ontario and Canada as well. With the introduction of our new equipment and streamlined process, the possibilities are endless. 

Short-Run Packaging Possibilities

We can assist with a vast range of projects using this cutting-edge machine. Although the list is extensive, here are some examples of the projects we can help bring to life:

  • Sock wraps
  • Tent cards
  • Candle boxes
  • Cannabis packaging
  • Cosmetic packaging
  • Die cut tags
  • Product packaging
  • Door hangers

Our new FKS Duplo System 5000 saddle stitcher machine provides an efficient and cost-effective way to bind books of various sizes. Whether you are looking to produce product manuals, newsletters, product guides, or any other booklet projects, let’s take a closer look at why saddle stitching is the perfect option for your next project.



What Is Saddle Stitching?


Saddle stitching is a type of binding method where pages are folded in half and then stapled together along the spine. Saddle Stitching is one of the most popular binding methods for magazines and other publications due to its affordability and durability when compared to other types of binding options.


Benefits of Saddle Stitching 


There are many benefits to choosing saddle stitching for your project. In addition to being cost-effective, it creates a secure yet flexible binding that will stand up to years of use without falling apart or becoming loose. Additionally, saddle stitching results in less bulk compared to other binding techniques, making it perfect for products that need to be shipped or stored in tight spaces. Finally, this type of binding requires minimal setup time and can be done quickly on our FKS Duplo System 5000 machine, allowing you to get your product out faster than ever before.


What Books are best for Saddle Stitching 


Our saddle stitching options make it easy to create a range of attractive and professional products. Small-format publications such as new product catalogs, newsletters, product guides, church bulletins, event guides, programs, employee handbooks, instruction manuals, sales packages, promotional brochures, and business magazines up to 8.5 x 11 inches can be brought to life with our high-quality binding method. Not only does this technique look great - durability scores highly too; perfect for annual reports or instruction manuals that need some extra staying power.  Take a look at the examples below for inspiration on booklets we can produce for you.
