creasing synthetic paper


Well-known member
I have a customer job for trifold brochures printed on 135gsm Nakoosa Synaps syntethetic media. My Duplo 646 creaser barely creates a crease at max depth. A baumfolder does better fold/crease, but that media doesn't exactly lay flat. Does anyone have tips for putting folds in synthetic media? thanks.


we have used our knife clamp to press the crease better after scoring and folding helps, but will not make it lay completely flat

We have some standard work that uses this type of substrate. For those, we have the stock pre-scored and/or perfed the old fashioned way, letterpress using channel scores.
