Special Intro for Linnea
So, just to clarify:
- Print 60 Sheets (each of which contains 3 different versions)
- Assemble 60 of the Alive Red & White version
- Assemble 20 each of each of the other 2 versions
“Can’t Say No” Program Table Talkers
NOTE: It is recommended that you go through all items on this page before commencing. Instructions are outlined below. Everything on this page is important and should be read once first, in full, before proceeding. There’s no “fluff”. All info here is important.
Print on heaviest paper available (like sugar sheet):
To create these “in house”, the ideal is to use some decent card stock that the printer is capable of printing on (note: not all card stock is suitable for all printers – using the wrong card stock CAN actually ruin a printer), or, at the very least, use the sugar sheet paper that is used for printing the menus. Even when I printed them on flimsy, normal paper here, upon assembly they are quite sturdy. Of course, the heavier the stock, the longer durability you will get. The alternative is to have them printed at Staples, or any other printing place capable of printing on a heavier stock, then doing the manual cutting out, scoring, folding, and assembly yourself. I don’t know what the turnaround time for these from a local printer would be though, so maybe do SOME printed “in house” to get things going, and have others teed up to be printed by a commercial printer.
- CUT OUT FULL SHAPE
Cut out each shape by cutting inside grey outline using an x-acto blade and metal straight edge not scissors (as shown below)
There is no avoiding the sheer amount of time that this is going to take without sending it to be commercially printed, die cut and scored.
To have this done professionally, locally, I have received a cost of $175.00 for the die to be created, and then $132.50 to print 100 sheets (=300 table talkers) or $225.00 to print 200 sheets (=600 table talkers). important: this local provider is non-vetted and took a few days just to answer emails
- SCORE ALL FOLDS
Score lightly along each fold (as shown below) (see demo video here or below)
- CUT TAB INSERT SLOTS
Cut tab insert slots by cutting along the slightly heavier grey line as seen on the print – note: this cut should be made ever so slightly to the side of the line separating the printed panel and the blank panel so the cut is just on the edge of the blank panel (exactly as it is printed)
Assemble by folding (as shown below)
