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

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:

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"

Muzzling the Beautiful Hum of PS Mailer Productivity

PS Mailer Sound CoversSound Covers for PS Mailers Equipment

Sometimes we just need a bit of peace and quiet. As we age, we don’t always want to hear that old time rock ‘n roll. We just want silence. Pure and total silence.....(probably more than we’d like to admit....wink, wink!).

Office equipment such as copiers, printers, fax machines, the constant pinging of your email inbox, instant messages, text messages, the good old telephone....well, they’re all background noises that we have to deal with in an office environment. High-speed printers tend to be the noisiest of them all. Don’t get me wrong, high speed printers are great. That means more business, increased sales, better profits, happier management team, etc.! However, we all know that higher speeds translate into louder operations. Now you feel sorry for the employees sitting closest to the noisiest machines in the office, don’t ya? There has to be a way to quiet these machines so productivity can skyrocket, right?!

Introducing PS Mailers Sound Covers

Pressure Seal Sound CoverSound covers are the greatest invention since “white noise”. Sound covers do double duty. Not only do they reduce the decibel level of the equipment, but they help protect the rollers and equipment from dust and debris that accumulates over time. It also helps protect our hearing. (Now, you have an excuse for your’s the office equipment, I swear. I really can’t hear you!) Be sure to extend the life of your PS Mailers equipment and place the sound cover over the equipment whenever it’s not in use. Keeps the gunk out.

Essential for High-Speed Units

I highly recommend a PS Mailers Sound Cover. Sound covers provide extra safety for machine operation and better, longer-lasting performance of your investment! And, for those sitting closest to continually operating office equipment, sound covers enhance the work environment by muzzling the beautiful hum of productivity, making them essential for every productive office. For a small amount of money, make the super smart investment of a sound cover. You’ll be protecting BOTH your employees health (no hearing aides needed!) AND your PS Mailers equipment! One size fits the PSM5000, PSM7000, and the PSM10K.

Perfect Folds with Pressure Seal Machine Fold Plates

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Thu, May 23, 2013 @ 11:05 AM

pressure seal folder plateMastering Fold Plate Technique

Every PS Mailer folder sealer machine has two fold plates, an Upper Fold Plate which is the larger of the two and a Lower Fold Plate, a bit smaller. Each one has its own functional location and cannot be interchanged. Proper insertion of the fold plates is essential to achieving perfect folds every time.

Positioning the Upper Fold Plate

Position the Upper Fold Plate (larger) on the front end of your PS Mailers folder sealer machine where the forms are dispensed in their final folded format. Looking at the numbers on the Upper Fold Plate, think of it as a ruler and position the fold plate so the lowest numbers are inserted into the PS Mailers machine first, closest to the rollers. The largest numbers on the Upper Fold Plate should be at the end of the model, farthest away from the major mechanics of the PS Mailers machine. As the Upper Fold Plate is inserted, it should fit easily and at a slight angle. To ensure the Upper Fold Plate is firmly in place, look underneath the plate and verify the cutouts sit securely on top of the four black pegs. With a firm grip, apply slight pressure downward to ensure a properly secured fit.

Positioning the Lower Fold Plate

The Lower Fold Plate (smaller) is placed on the back side of the PS Mailers folder sealer machine and sits parallel to the motor cover. Again, looking at the numbers on the Lower Fold Plate and thinking of it as a ruler, position the Lower Fold Plate so the lowest numbers are inserted first and are closest to the rollers. The highest numbers should be farthest away from the main mechanics of the PS Mailers machine. Ensure the Lower Fold Plate is firmly in place by looking underneath the plate and be certain the cutouts sit securely on top of the four black pegs. With a firm grip, apply slight pressure downward to ensure a properly secured fit.

Proper Fit, Perfect Fold

Proper fit of both fold plates is essential to getting the perfect fold every time. If you periodically clean the PS Mailers machine, be sure to follow these fit techniques afterward to ensure smooth and perfect operation as well as perfect folds.
