and not larger than tabloid (w280 mm x h400 mm). A4 and A5 format must be portrait. There must be no attack on the insert.

Trimming / cutting
All inserts must have the same format after cutting and the format must be square. Blunt blades on the cutting equipment must not
is used as this may cause the inserts to stick together.

Glued products inside the insert (eg postcards, giros, tipping coupons)
The products must be glued, fastened to the seam on the main product. It must also be placed so that the upper edge / lower edge is at the same level as the upper edge / lower edge of the main insert. The glued product must not exceed two pages (exception: if a very thin paper is used). Plastic-wrapped individual products cannot be used as inserts.

The envelope must be godt glued. The content must be complementary

Rules for packing and transport
Product condition on the day of delivery
The inserts must be manufactured, packed and stacked in such a way that they can be used immediately in production.
It should not be necessary to process the inserts manually.

Products that can not be used for insertion:

  • Paste attachments due to not dried color
  • Highly electrostatic attachments
  • Damp annexes
  • Poorly stapled attachments
  • Attachments with folded corners and edges

Requirements for palletizing
The appendices must be delivered in batches. The legs must be as large as possible. My. 10 cm / 50 ex. per leg.
The material / legs should not be plasticized or strapped.
The material must be delivered on a pallet, max. height 1.5 m, only approved Europallets.
The attachments must be palletised in a way that does not contribute to deformation (even pressure on the pallet) and without air between the stacks)
The material must be delivered with the back up on the pallet.
The pallet is plasticized and secured before transport.
Finished pallets are packed with top lid, stretch film and strap around. Corners for delicate products.
Pay special attention to the fact that slippery products can not be stacked as high on the pallet and must be secured extra godt with pallet straps.

Handling guidelines

It is very important that the pallets are godt marked, so that it is clear which product is on the pallet, and in which newspaper it
