Adirondack Cover simulates the rich texture of kidskin leather, with an acrylic coating that provides resistance to moisture and staining.
125# (20" x 26"/500 sheets)
208# (36" x 24"/500 sheets)
Adirondack Cover yields excellent results when screen printed. Use solvent based inks for best results, and screen mesh sizes as recommended by ink manufacturer. Due to the high moisture resistance of its acrylic coating, Adirondack is not recommended for offset printing.
Due to the nature of acrylic coatings, there is no substrate absorbency to improve ink set and drying time. When applied to a nonporous surface, they require longer to dry. Ink should be dry in 18 to 24 hours.
Foil Stamping and Embossing
Adirondack Cover is ideally suited to foil stamping and embossing. Metallic foils are recommended. Consult your foil supplier and/or embosser for additional testing samples and more information.
Cutting and Die-cutting
Adirondack Cover can be guillotine, rotary or die cut. All normal steel ruled die cutting processes may be used on Adirondack. It can be cleanly punched and will readily accept all conventional fasteners, such as grommets in one or two pieces, etc.
Glues should be tested prior to production. Consult your adhesive supplier for more information.
Adirondack Cover is compatible with a range of loose-leaf binding systems, including plastic coil and comb, spiral, wire, thermal and Velo binding.
Scoring and Folding
Adirondack scores and folds well and has excellent hinge characteristics. A 3 pt rule is recommended, with a 0.005" depth of male rule penetration. Ideal channel widths for CD scores using a 3 pt rule are 0.078" and 0.086". Ideal channel width for MD scoring is about 0.078". Typically, a greater depth of penetration is required for MD scores to achieve results similar to those on CD scores.
