sample boards

For an immediate visual display of your samples, our rigid sample boards are a great solution. At a glance, your customers can easily view your product samples. Sample boards offer a great solution for larger samples. They are flat boards that can be custom printed with your artwork before you adhere your samples onto them. Sample boards are available with optional die-cut handles or 3-hole drilled to be inserted into your ring binder. 

custom sample boards

Customize your sample board to your exact needs and choose between turned-edge boards and flush cut boards. Board weight: 79pt, 98pt, 110pt and 120pt.

For our turned-edge boards we offer sizes from 6-1/2″ x 12″ up.

The minimum size for our flush cut sample boards is 3″ x 3″. The flush cut sample boards have an open edge where the binders board shows through which creates a unique look. The corners are rounded for better durability.

You can finish your sample board with a die-cut handle for easy carrying or a hole to hang your sample board in a showroom peg board. You can also have your board 3-hole drilled to be used in a ring binder.

+ lamination

Unlike protective liquid finishes such as aqueous coating, varnish or UV, film lamination actually reinforces paper- extending the life and improving the performance of printed pieces. Since it’s a film, it stretches and flexes, something liquid coatings can not do.

MATTE SOFT TOUCH – Nylon Lamination

  • Smooth, silky appearance – creates a refined, elegant look
  • Subtle surface texture creates a “soft touch” tactile feel.

NATURAL MATTE – Polypropylene Lamination

  • Subtle appearance
  • Non-reflective; minimizes color shift
  • Scratch-resistant finish
  • Virtually eliminates fingerprints

GLOSS – Nylon Lamination

  • Clear, shiny film that enhances printing and intensifies color
  • A great choice when you want a clean look and color that really stands out
  • Optional linen texture: embossed textured finish minimizes fingerprints, scratching and scuffing, a good solid choice for heavily used materials

+ finishing

FOIL STAMPING offers an elegant way of customizing your sample binder.

Foils come in a wide selection of colors and finishes, from traditional metallic gold and silver, to metallic and matte foils in every color of the rainbow. Metallic foils are the most widely used stamping foils, because they add a brilliant, eye-catching shine.

SPOT UV is a great way to help give your art a little extra “pop.” Applied after lamination or varnish, a contrasting spot UV picks up the light and gives a tactile feel to your sample presentation. Using a spot UV gloss combined with matte lamination is a great way to add contrasting finishes to your project, with maximum style.
