Feeling The Heat!

Feeling the heat? PSMailers to the rescue!

This summer has already been a scorcher for much of the country, with heat spells in the 90s-plus F°¬ blistering communities from the east coast to the southwest. How hot was it today? It was so hot that you could almost hear the king of late night comedy, Johnny Carson, riff on the heat.

During these hot, steamy days of summer, who needs to sweat the time-consuming, labor intensive task of folding and sealing documents with outdated equipment? Help businesses keep their cool with PSMailers Pressure Seal Systems that save time, labor and money on the entire pressure seal mailing process:

• PSMailers keeps it “chill” with a line of compact, Small Volume folder/sealers designed for businesses that need 1,800-3,000 sheets/hour capacity.

• Busy offices can find much relief with PSMailers Medium Volume systems equipped to handle a demanding load without demanding too much of an organization’s budget or space.

• When the work really heats up, PSMailers Large Volume and Specialty models make light work of heavy loads.

This is also the perfect opportunity to remind PSMailers customers to store PSMailers documents in a temperature-controlled environment to ensure they are always in perfect condition for printing, folding, sealing.

So before you start seeing chickens lay hard boiled eggs this summer, help turn sweat into “Sweet!!” with PSMailers to the rescue.

See you at the pool! Last one in is a rotten (hard-boiled) egg!

Alphabet soup of folding styles... mmm mmm, confusing!

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Fri, Aug 7, 2015 @ 13:08 PM

Alphabet Soup

Apologies for planting the Campbell’s Soup earworm in your head. (At least I didn’t mention your favorite bologna…you know, the one with a first name and last name…or a certain cat food mix that will leave you mentally meowing in double time). But you see, I was reviewing the many fold styles available for use with PSMailers… C-fold, V-fold, ZX-fold… and I realized this alphabet soup of letters likely stirs up a hot cup of confusion for many users. I figured that PSMailers Guy fans (I know you’re out there) would appreciate having these spelled out clearly.

 

Below are the six available fold styles of PSMailers documents:

FOLD STYLE ALIAS DESCRIPTION/USES SIZE(S) AVAILABLE
Z-Fold "Accordion style" Z-Fold This is the most common fold style. Creates the letter "Z" when folded; easy-open style good for forms, checks and other mailings. 8.5" x 11" 8.5" x 14"
C-Fold "Letter" or "Tri-Fold" Great for checks and forms. 8.5" x 11" 
 V-Fold "Half Fold" or "Single Fold" Forms the letter "V" when folded, provides generious space for information.   8.5" x 11" 
 EZ-Fold "Eccentric Z-Fold" Uneven Z-Fold, great for checks and forms that need a little more print real estate.   8.5" x 14"
 EC-Fold "Eccentric C-Fold" Legal size accommodates a fourth panel for return envelope.   8.5" x 14"
 ZX-Fold "Z-Fold with extra voucher" Legal size version of the Z-Fold with a fourth panel that creates a detachable voucher ideal for printing A/P checks.   8.5" x 14"

Release your inner Goldilocks

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Fri, Mar 13, 2015 @ 15:03 PM

W BlogArt Goldilocks

One of my favorite activities in the evening is tucking PSMailers Guy Junior into bed and telling him bedtime stories. The little guy is easy to please, so the other night I recounted the tried-and-true tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. As I sat down later that evening to pen (er, two-finger-type) this blog, it occurred to me that choosing a PSMailers system requires an inner Goldilocks of sorts. A little voice that helps you select the pressure seal self-mailer model that’s juuuust right for your needs.

For example, mid-sized organizations and busy offices poised for growth would find that PSMailers Medium-Volume machines easily satisfy the proverbial fair-haired lass within. Not too big, not too small, PSMailers Medium-Volume systems are designed to handle a demanding load without demanding too much of an organization’s budget or space.

The PSM5000 is a folder/sealer that includes an integrated 18” conveyor and digital counter at no extra cost. This mighty machine handles output of up 5,000 pieces per hour. Not to be outdone, the PSM7000 system with conveyor lives up to its name, processing 7,000 sheets per hour. Even Little Red Riding Hood would be impressed! Both models handle paper sizes up to 8.5” x 14” and a variety of fold styles, including C, V, EZ, Z and EC.

See the psmailers.com home page for more product specs and videos of each Medium-Volume model in action. And contact us to get your copy of our PSMailers Capabilities Brochure (W-PSE-D). If you don’t, I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll…

 

Just kidding. Until next time, sweet dreams!

C Fold or Z Fold? Figuring out Fold Style for Pressure Seal Documents

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Wed, Feb 20, 2013 @ 11:02 AM

C-fold or Z-fold

Identifying the fold style is the first and most important step in getting the results you need from your PS Mailers pressure seal investment. Determining the fold style is key to setting up the PS Mailers equipment to run the pressure seal documents properly.

Step 1: Identify the form size. Is it 8½" x 11" or 8½" x 14"?
Step 2: Is it a check? Go on to Step 3.
Is it a form? Skip to Step 4.
Step 3: Where is the check location?
If the check is in the middle portion of the document, you have a Z fold.
If the check is in the bottom portion of the document, you have a C fold.
Step 4: (FOR CHECKS OR FORMS)
Identify whether it folds like an "accordian" Z fold or a "typed, formal letter" C fold.
Step 4a: (FOR CHECKS OR FORMS)
Here's where it gets a little sticky...identifying glue patterns on the form actually can help determine the fold style. Crazy, but true!
  • If there is glue all around the form AND it folds in two equal panels, then it's a V fold.
  • If there is glue all around the form AND it folds in three equal panels, it's a C fold.
  • If there is glue ONLY around 2/3 of the document, it's a Z fold.
Step 5: (FOR CHECKS OR FORMS)
Determine whether each panel is the same size or different sizes.
  • If you see three equal size panels, it's either a Z fold or a C fold. [Take a quick step back to Step 4 and determine whether is folds like an accordian or a formal letter to make the final determination of whether it's a C fold or a Z fold.]
  • If a return envelope is part of the document, it's an Eccentric C fold (Ecc. C for short!).
  • If you see two larger panels in the top and middle positions and one smaller panel in the bottom position (where you'd find the return address and mail-to address), it's an EZ fold.
