Metal

Metal office supplies are normally used in the context of staplers and hole punches etc, unfortunately this is not what we can supply for you.

Our metal office supplies relate to metal faced polypropylene products. This is a polypropylene base material coated with a thin aluminium film to both sides. The outer profile shape is cut and then the creases are routed to bare the polypropylene, this allows the profile shape to be bent and folded to the finished design. We can then form ring binders, folders, wallets and slipcase.

Print options can be:

  • Foil blocking for a metallic gold or silver colour.
  • Screen print with a spot colour or multiple colours.
  • Litho print for a full colour photographic image, suitable for large quantities.
  • Digital print for a full colour image but remaining cost effective for small quantities.

Laser cutting and engraving can also be employed to great effect and enhancing your design.

We have a stock range of 35 colours of PVC held here in our Staines factory. There are other colours available from Europe. This extended colour range of office supply materials is available to us on a 2-3 day lead time. If you require a PVC that gives a more upmarket look to your binders, there is a selection of different textures and grains for you to choose from.

The most popular choice of Polypropylene is the Frosted Natural. There is a very small colour range available, however our stock colours are only Frosted and White. These also come in a range of microns which are generally 500 Micron, 800 Micron and 1200 Micron.
