Duplex carton and multi-layer concealing of paper and cardboard
Laminating (in German also “kaschieren”) means:
Sticking paper and cardboard together and creating multi-coloured
layers. That sounds easier than it is in practice. Especially if they have
different paper weights or are even different materials. Because every
paper starts to roll when it gets damp:
The “stronger” paper pulls the “weaker” to it and the end product is
wavy (in German “es tellert”), it isn’t flat any more. Non-flatness of paper
is generally understood to mean curling , waviness and discarding of entire
stacks of paper or individual sheets before or after printing. The larger
the sheet, the more – because moisture can only escape unevenly during
The optimum solution is to glue two identical papers together or laminate two identical papers onto a central layer. But by using special adhesives and a number of other tricks, it is possible for us to join even unruly papers together.
And what can you exactly do with duplex carton (or triplex carton or quadrex carton)?
• Playing with colour and feel: Business cards or presentation folders of different colours are eye-catchers – with different haptics they invite you to grab them. For example, high smooth in front and rough at the back. Subtle messages that are understood – in the truest sense of the word.
• The stimulus is made up by combining it with cut-out and punched out motifs. Of course, we also offer laser cut and filigree punching in the highest quality.
• The previously unused side of the paper begins to live: Because paper also has edges. In this case, the cutting edges are colored through. Colored, or even multi-coloured. Gradual construction rounds off the picture and makes completely new design accents possible.
