Duplex & Triplexing

December 3rd, 2018

Two of our most popular finishes, duplexing and triplexing involve adhering different papers together to create really beautiful finishes. Duplex involves gluing two papers or boards together, while triplexing uses three. Duplexing is a great way to achieve different textures and colours on either side of your print. It also works really well with die-cutting, as you can set the die-cutter to only cut out the top layer, revealing the second colour underneath. Triplexing can be used to get a coloured seam running through the centre of a card.

Duplex and Triplexing are a great way to make your print look special and definitely more classy. Used mostly for corporate invites and business cards, these finishing processes give an extra touch, showing your customers that you pay attention to detail and that your brand is a premium one. Emboss a triplexed invite for an outstanding result that will suggest your guests a luxury event from the second they receive it and Print a triplex business card to make a memorable first impression that will last.

GDPR What is it, Why Should I Care & How Can Cognitu Help?

Now that GDPR has come into effect…

The Customer now has control of how their personal data is used and kept.
It prevents organisations from being able to market to them without their consent.

So what does GDPR mean for Organisations?

In short, any customer may, at any time, request for certain personal data to be removed from the Organisations systems. Requests can range from the removal of their entire account to the removal of certain “legacy” orders or transactions. In addition Organisations must now have been given specific consent to be able to send marketing e-mails or texts.

Print Evolved and GDPR

Print Evolved have developed an on-line ‘GDPR help request tool’ which is available within the Help menu to allow for specific requests to be sent for the removal of customer data.
Customer data is stored at a UK data centre which is fitted with cutting edge environmental, operational and security controls to provide total peace of mind. It is certified with the following accreditations;

  • ISO 27001:2013 Information Security Management System
  • ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System
  • ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System
  • PCI-DSS Payment Card Security Standard
  • PSN Certification
  • Cyber Essentials Certification

Help is just a click away.

It can be tricky explaining your needs to a Web2Print provider. Translating requests into terms that any given online platform requires is often a challenge in itself. Thankfully, Print Evolved’s platform, Cognitu, is the tool to help with this problem.

Within Cognitu a new help request section has been added.This screen allows users to send technical requests directly to the implementation team in an intuitive and guided manner.To create a new request, users simply select the “Request” option from the “Help” menu. If you cannot see these in your menu, contact your key account manager or customer services, who will arrange for you to be able to access this area.

The links on this help page go to an intuitive form for the task required. This guides you through the process, whilst ensuring that the best information possible is sent through to the implementation team. Once submitted requests are sent directly to the team’s task queue. Once submitted requests are sent directly to the team’s task queue, mitigating the risk of delay or any information being lost in translation.
