We do microperfing on most papers, including normal thicknesses of cover stock.  Tooth counts range from 30 teeth per inch to 72 teeth per inch.  We select which one works best with any given job.

Many different styles of perforating rules are carried in stock to accommodate most projects, from 17 teeth to 4 teeth per inch.

Doorknob Hangers

2-up or 3-up on 8½" x 11" using our standard dies, 1-1/8" hole.  Larger sheets are no problem, call for special requirements.


Carbonless forms, tickets with perforated stubs, envelopes, plain paper or cover stock, etc.  Up to 10 numbering machines.


From lightweight coated text stock to heavy cover stock. A letterpress score is often the only solution to prevent cracking on certain digital jobs or those with heavy coverage.  We carry some special scoring rules for text weight papers.

Gripper Margin

Don't forget we need a standard ¼" gripper margin for perforating or scoring.  We grip on the 8½" side of 8½" x 11" sheets, up to our maximum 10" image width.  We can feed 11" wide sheets, but only 10" image.

Minimum gripper margin for numbering is 9/16" to the top of the 5/32" tall numbers.  In a pinch we can “cheat” and get by with a ½" gripper margin to the top of numbers.


On numbering jobs we assume we have 20 extra pieces for 1,000 quantity, plus 5 per thousand over that, so if we get fewer, you may end up short, on the low numbers, since we number backwards so the low numbers will end up on top.  Standard numbering color is 185 red.  We can number in black, but you might need to wait a few days until all red numbering jobs are completed to avoid extra charges for a washup.  Pantone colors can be done, but you will need to furnish us with the ink, and a washup charge will apply.

We charge extra to block out the , which is the part of the numbering machine that turns the figure wheels. On certain jobs eliminating the may not be feasible due to mechanical limitations of the letterpress process.  Please call before designing any large job and permit us to assist in the beginning.


We have a 3,000# capacity forklift for unloading and loading palletized jobs.  We can palletize jobs after completing the work, for delivery directly to your customer.  We work with several good delivery service companies who can utilize lift gate trucks when needed, and bill you either through us or direct at our special pricing.

Perforating and Scoring Machine

Designed for the digital market, we can now easily produce those short run jobs that are so troublesome with older methods, on sheet sizes from 3" x 5" up to 18" x 25.5".

A simple touch screen enables extremely fast setups for either perforating or scoring in either direction.

Vacuum feeder minimizes marking on virtually any paper from 20# bond to 12 point cover.

Conveniently located in  Arvada, Colorado, just north of Denver.
