Jersey® Cover Production Guidelines

Jersey Cover is a reliable and solid performer as a cover stock, and is a denser, more durable sheet than other cover stocks of the same thickness.

Jersey Cover's excellent printability works well with both sheet fed and web offset printing as well as heat set printing. Use a high-micron spray powder to avoid offsetting (20-40u).

Rack in small lifts of 250 to 500 sheets for better drying. As an option, in-line aqueous coating offers additional protection against offsetting and scuffing.

Use high tack inks (14-16) for faster ink set-up on the sheet. Use oxidizing inks with good rub resistance. As with many uncoated stocks, large areas of solid coverage may require a second hit or an additional screen tint to achieve full color value. We recommend using a drying additive in the ink.

Maintain a normal pH in the range of 4.0-4.5. Use a drying stimulator for faster results.

Foil Stamping and Embossing
Jersey Cover is ideally suited to foil stamping and embossing. If foil stamping over a printed surface, use wax-free inks.

Jersey Cover is ideally suited to die-cutting, either on a flat-bed or rotary press. It can be cut along the grain or across the grain, resulting in clean, smooth edges.

Folding, Scoring and Glueing
Jersey Cover has excellent performance results with folding and scoring. A 2 pt. score is recommended for the most accurate and consistent folding of the Jersey Cover collection. Scores should incorporate a hinge, ridge or "bubble". This will allow the stock to be folded against the bubble on the inside of the sheet for minimum stretching and reduce cracking or splitting of the fiber or coating.

Scoring and folding should go with the grain. When scoring in both directions is required, keep the longest score in the direction of the grain.

LB per FT2 = BW

$/FT2 = LB. per FT2 X $ per LB

$ per MSF = $/Ton X BW

$ per LB. = $/CWT

$ per Ton = 6000 X BW + $ per MSF X 6000

M Weight = L X W X BW

$ per Sheet = M Weight X $ per LB.
