SunDance is proud to add yet another bindery option to the mix with our new Double Loop Wiro Bindery Machine. Double Loop Wiro is a bindery process that creates a spine very similar to spiral bound notebooks. The major difference with the Double Looped system there are two wires going through the hole in the paper vs. only one wire in spiral bound notebooks. This makes the pages much more secure, the presentation much more professional and enhances the inherent value of the piece at a reasonable price.
As well, Double Loop Wiro can be produced to allow individual sheets to be removed and replaced without being torn, making it extremely versatile for use in menus, room service and hotel books. We can even produce the laminated pages and make updates for you whenever you need them.
With our digital capabilities, try a Double Wiro mockup of your next project to see if it might be the right fit for you. Pair that with our award winning bindery options for the perfect book, notebook, presentation folder or completely custom application. Getting it right takes experimentation and at SunDance we know from experience.
The Minipack MVS31 XP is a chamber vacuum sealer for packaging fragile materials or creating creative packaging options. The Minipack was originally developed for sealing perishable foods. Over the past few years, the sous vide cooking trend has made the vacuum sealers even more popular to seal bags before boiling.
SunDance acquired the Minipack for a specific job which required one of a kind packaging. The custom packaging was created from a printed bag that the items were sealed within in the vacuum sealer. The effect was a package that hinted at the contents, making it irresistible to the receiver, creating an impressive response rate.
We would love to find more applications for the Minipack. Let us know what ideas you have and we’ll begin the creative process. We love to experiment at SunDance. It’s the key to innovation and creating the perfect piece for your next project.

It's been said a team that shoots paintballs at one another is a team that can accomplish anything! Well, it's possible we just made it up ourselves but we definitely believe it. In fact, several members of the team took to the field with paint guns in hand. After 5 complete games within 4 hours and a bunch of bruises, we're ready to do it again another day.
Teamwork and collaboration are not only learned on the job but also outside through recreational events such as this one. We work harder, play harder, and get up each day eager to do it all over again

SunDance recently donated a large format job for Literacy Night at Eagle Creek Elementary in the Lake Nona neighborhood of Orlando. The life-sized alien cutouts were characters from the children's book Aliens in Underpants by Claire Freedman. The cutouts served as a photobooth for the event which was by all accounts a success.
From Eagle Creek Elementary's Facebook post:
Literacy night was a HUGE success! We welcomed over 150 Panthers to our "Reading is OUT OF THIS WORLD" night. Students ate alien cookies, listened to silly alien stories and shopped our book fair. It was a BLAST!
