For over 30 years, AMS Print & Mail Specialists, located in Blaine, WA, has been providing digital printing and expertise in mail creation and injection to large and small organizations. Producing thousands of pieces of printed material each day, from brochures, booklets and mailing to posters and variable data for all forms of document and marketing and promotional campaigns.

AMS is utilizing Rollem’s Mailstream to help produce their application of trifold mailers with a bi-directional “T” perf, folded and glued. The Mailstream operates in-line with the Advantage folder/gluer unit to feed, trim, strike perforate, fold and glue, all in one uninterrupted process in mail sort order. Rollem had AMS’s Advantage folder/gluer built to precise specifications due to the complex folds. The application is produced near-line using a sheet feeder, but can also be fed directly from digital presses, such as Xerox, Ricoh, HP, Canon and KM.

The Mailstream system processes multiple-up mail pieces and performs numerous functions in one pass. Direct mail pieces are two-sided trimmed, gutter cut, scored and perforated, plus pattern (strike) perforating to create tear-off applications in both directions. Remoistenable glue is applied followed by folding, tip-on card inserting and fugitive spot glue closure as the final step. These processes are all completed in one single pass.
