Pressure Sealers: Checks & Forms

Self Mailers

Pressure seal is the most efficient way to produce mail-ready pieces with just a single sheet of paper. Through a unique folding and sealing process, pressure seal forms/checks are converted into self-contained mailers. This process saves cost of envelope and extra labor. There are several types of pressure seal features that make it an effective document mailing solution for many industries. For example, pressure seal forms are tamper proof and contain blockouts to keep information confidential. Similarly, pressure seal checks feature high security watermarks and toner grip.

How Does Pressure Seal Work?

First, pressure seal checks are imaged with a laser printer and compatible software. Next, the imaged checks are loaded into a pressure sealer feed system (High volume systems will run a laser printer inline with a pressure sealer). During the folding process, the sealer machine aligns patterns of cohesive along the edges of the form. When the folded form passes through a series of sealing rollers that apply pressure, the cohesive is activated, creating a seal.
