The new Fischell TSS-1 tag stringing solution enables fast creation of a variety of items that require string tie loops.

SunDance is proud to announce a huge new addition to our lineup of Digital Printing options available. The Heidelberg® Versafire CP Digital Press is a flexible powerhouse, able to handle large jobs at high speeds, with extremely high resolutions. This increases SunDance's turnaround time and quality on various types of digital printing jobs.
The advanced design of the Versafire CP also allows it to handle varying types of stock at a low fusing temperature, such as textured paper, plastics, translucent, synthetic, metallic and even magnetic papers.
The Versafire allows SunDance to offer fully digital custom folder, package and carton printing on sheet sizes of up to 13” x 27.5” in duplex, or double sided printing. This makes SunDance the local leader in turnaround on such complicated jobs, from prototyping all the way through full production.
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.
