Working Behind the Scenes

By Jolly Edition

Our projects tend to be printed and shipped in waves. This week we had five projects to wrap and ship out all at the same time. A lot of people don’t realize what goes into those last minute tasks, especially that we hand-assemble our liners.

Our Project Manager Tom assembles all our envelope liners by hand and this week he assembled more than 500 of them. Here’s a little behind-the-scenes action of this weeks packing marathon.

No Cats Allowed
Up early to start the assembly marathon. We clean down our desks and imprison the cats.
Step 1: Glue. We score each envelope by hand and then carefully paste glue onto the reverse of each liner.
Step 2: Seal. We carefully seal the liner to the flap of the envelope.
Step 3: Pack. We insert each piece of stationery into each envelope.
Step 4: Finesse. We carefully open and close each envelope to make sure the tricky corners are properly sealed.
Tired Tony
After we've finished assembling envelopes it's time to organize shipping. At that point Pepperoni Tony is released to reclaim our desk space. It's been a long day.
Afternoon sunshine
Finally a beautiful afternoon to admire.
