There is a condition for trim/cutting in our printing industry, is to have a great supplier system and management. We have co-operation and relationship with multiple suppliers who provide raw paper material. To ensure that our production would barely influence by any problems may occur on our resource. Simultaneously, multiple suppliers offer us multiple choice. We can so have more options and select an optimal choice with high quality and relatively low cost. Under such condition of resource, we have ensured the manufacture have a quality-secured beginning.
The first step of our manufacturing is trim. It simply just a vocabulary for trimming/cutting the paper in our industry. The purpose of this head process is simply to cut the raw paper material into required and proper dimension so that it would fit well when going into the printing machine.
For the demand of thickness, we have a certain measurement method for the thickness. Instead of telling the thickness in cm or mm, printing industry have “gsm” as a unit for thickness. “gsm” stands for gram per square meter. It’s therefore the weight of the paper per square meter. The higher weight the paper has, the thicker it is. The paper for daily-use, such as paper for printing, is usually 60-75gsm. This is also one of the demands we would be informed by our customers. For some paper boxes, it would be 250gsm as recommend. However, major of our paper boxes are customized. Hence, it’s your right to choose and design. We would offer you suggestions for your design and struggle for a satisfied result.
Once we have our raw paper trimmed, the paper would be ready for the next procedure, printing.
