Banner Printing

Banners help you celebrate, announce, or advertise in an unmistakable way! Sponsor an event, and create a banner that can be tied to a fence. Announce a grand opening with a banner that runs the length of the building.

Metzgers’ wide-format press is perfect for printing full-color banners that stand out in the largest gym, or busiest conference center. Print on plastic or vinyl and it’s an investment that will serve your advertising and promotion needs for years to come. Our Acuity press can handle anything up to 80” wide by 150’ long. At that size, your event might be visible by satellite from space!

Ask your Metzgers representative about banner printing options for your event, and watch our videos about what our wide-format press can do.

Poster Printing

Posters convey a lot of information when space is limited. Large posters in your workspace can serve as a “how-to” guide for company procedures. At a conference or trade show, large, bright posters can draw attention to your organization or a new product. Transparent window graphics add pizazz to a storefront door or window while maintaining visibility.

Posters don’t have to be printed on paper – even heavy paper. Consider flexible or rigid plastic, vinyl, cardboard, or foam core and similar substrates. At Metzgers, our wide-format printing press can produce signs and graphics up to a 4’ by 8’ cutout display. The wide-format press is often used with a digital trimming table that can cut out complex shapes without the time and expense of die-cutting.

Talk with a Metzgers representative about your plans for posters.

One-to-One Variable Data Printing

One-to-one variable-data printing and digital printing technology go together like cake and ice cream. Variable data printing allows you to sort information by various demographics and areas of interest, and customize a flyer, catalog, brochure, eBrochure, or other material to a specific individual…without having to completely recreate files each time

Let’s say you’re a travel agent. Someone visits your website and requests more information about location weddings in the tropics. Our digital printing service will take the person’s name, destination, and any other information you gather and generate either a PDF eBrochure to be sent via email, or a digitally printed brochure that will be mailed out immediately.

Now let’s say you’re a cardiologist, and you need to replenish your supply of booklets about angioplasty. The booklets are customized with specific details about your practice. At Metzgers, we can create a Web-to-Print Storefront that allows you to merge your specific information into the printed material and create as many copies as you need.

Variable-data printing, digital printing on demand, and web-to-print storefronts can be integrated to save time and money. Order what you need, when you need it, with specific details. Whether your university wants to reach out to specific students on college night, your high school arts program wants to create awareness through customized incentives, your large accounting firm needs shirts for its community outreach campaigns, or your small florist shop is giving away reusable shopping totes at a grand opening, Metzgers means more creative, colorful, cost-effective ways to reach your audience.

Saddle Stitch Binding

Need to put together a booklet? Metzgers can do that. We use a variety of binding methods to meet your needs. Need your booklets printed quickly and cost-effectively? Saddle stitching might be right for you.

What is saddle stitching?
Saddle stitching is a popular book binding method that uses staples to bind folded sheets of paper. The "saddle" part comes from mechanism that resembles a saddle used during the process. "Stitching" is a common term for stapling in the print industry.
It's a relatively simple process by which papers are folded and stapled two to three times at the fold. The result is a professional-looking piece with a trademark saddle stitched spine, which is flat unlike a traditional book, and cannot be printed on.

What are its benefits?
Saddle stitching is quick and cost-effective. It works well for short-run productions and for small or large booklets. It's also great for mailed booklets as it adds minimal weight.

Saddle stitching also opens up a variety of options for your booklet. Saddle stitching options include:

  • Covers: They can be heavy or the same weight as each sheet in the booklet.
  • Sizes: Saddle stitching can be used to create any sized booklet, from pocket-sized to table-sized.
  • Hole punches: The flat nature of a saddle stitched binding makes the finished product ideal for inserting into a three-ring binder, with or without hole punches.
  • Art: Need a large canvas for your cover art but sticking with a smaller booklet? No problem. Since your cover is one folded sheet, your cover art can take up the front and back of your booklets easily.

Saddle stitching is quick, easy and full of possibilities. Ask us how it can be used for your project.
