What’s the creasing for?

One of the problems with print finishing that the paper sheet cracks when folded.

The good news is that we have few creasers in place and could do creasing before folding, the right way.

Creasing, can significantly reduce or eliminate cracking at the fold.

What is Creasing? Creasing is a process that prepares the paper for folding by creating two parallel folding points. It is recognizable by the bead created on the inside of the fold.

Why Creasing? Many folding jobs are susceptible to cracking.

A crease creates double fold points that reduce the stress on the fiber at each point, thus each stress point folds to a lesser degree. This seemingly small difference will reduce or completely eliminate cracking on most printed jobs.
