Specific technical possibilities: bleed printing, filing holes, special perforations, simple or complex numbering.
Pierre Bourquin's annual production: several hundred million sheets.
INDIVIDUAL, CONTINUOUS, CONTISNAP CARBONLESS BUNDLES...
Individual, continuous (with carol strips) or contisnap (glued to a continuous backing) carbonless bundles can be personalized on impact printers or by hand.
Specific technical possibilities: UV curing, printing in up to 5 colors Ro/Vo, filing holes, specific perforations, simple numbering in impact, complex numbering and/or coding in inkjet.
Pierre Bourquin's annual production: several hundred million bundles.
The pre-printed sheets or bundles assembled in notebooks are intended to be filled in by hand. The sheets of the notebook can be detached individually by means of a perforation. The notebooks are edge stitched with top and bottom covers, interleaving and protective edging.
Pierre Bourquin's annual production: several hundred thousand notebooks.
The labels are produced as continuous fan-folding labels, A4 sheets or reels.
They can be produced on thin, thick, adhesive or non-adhesive materials. They are designed to be individually personalized on impact or laser printers.
Adhesive labels consist of a front and a back. They can be die-cut or simply kiss-cut to size.

DOCUMENTS WITH INTEGRATED LABELS OR CARDS
A4 sheets or continuous fan-fold labels including adhesive labels or cards integrated into the thickness of the paper and intended to be personalized on a laser printer.
The labels or cards are cut out of the paper.
After customization, the labels can be easily removed from the document and placed on another object.
The cards can be protected by a film on both sides. After personalization they can be easily removed from the document.
Pierre Bourquin's annual production: several million documents with integrated labels or cards.
Single or multi-sheet forms, A4, continuous, in cut bundles or in booklets with a unique traceability code on each of their components in the form of a simple number with or without a control key, barcode, datamatrix code or QR code.
Pierre Bourquin's annual production: several tens of millions of pre-coded documents.
DOCUMENTS FOR OPTICAL READING
Available as single or multi-leaf, A4, continuous forms, cut sheets or booklets, machine-readable forms are designed to be processed on dedicated readers after they have been personalized. They require optical quality paper, inks of the non-actinic type and a high degree of precision in marking.
DOCUMENTS IN POCKETS
Multi-sheet documents, customizable on a printer or by hand, where 2 of the sheets make up a pocket in which bank cheques, keys, notes or samples can be integrated.
An adhesive strip allows the pouch to be sealed manually after use. Security features can be integrated to make it tamper-proof.
