Polywrapping and Shrink Wrapping

We offer full collating and polywrapping, using biodegradable clear or pre-printed film, to give publications and unique marketing materials total visibility. Polywrap is a versatile alternative to traditional envelopes, protecting the mail and allowing for additional inserts. We use the latest technology in biodegradable plastics allowing our clients to maintain their Green initiatives.

Shrink wrapping services are also available to give your product a professional packaged look.


Our tabbing equipment provides clients a variety of options to enhance the look and feel of their mail piece. The machine seals open brochures for a professional look that protects your mailing from damage. Tabbing can personalize mail pieces through mechanically affixing stamps or repositionable notes (RPN’s) and can be used to affix any type of roll label or seal to a mailing piece.

Our tabbing equipment operates at high speeds and is extremely economical when operated in line with our inserting and inkjet equipment. Tabbing also has applications for affixing customs declarations on product offerings.
