Pressure Seal Stock Used In Checks and Forms

Are you looking to reduce costs for materials, labor and postage on mailings?   With Pressure Seal Forms, you can accomplish more in less time. Pressure seal technology you can create, process and deliver mailed pieces without an envelope. By eliminating the printed envelope and the related folding, stuffing and gluing you are reducing the time and cost.  The new green alternative is pressure seal forms and they are more cost effective.

Pressure seal requires a one-page, self-sealing document—such as a form or a check—and a folder/sealer machine to fold and seal the document. The forms can first be printed on an office laser printer and then fed through the folder/sealer machine. Unlike other types of mailers that require heat or liquid for sealing, a pressure seal document is sealed through pressure. Folding aligns patterns of cohesive, which is applied to edges of the form during manufacturing. When the folded form passes through a series of sealing rollers that apply pressure, the cohesive is activated, creating a seal.
