We understand the technologies, their possibilities and limitations. Our cutting-edge equipment and sophisticated software ensures the accuracy of your job.

Correction Work

Some people might say that this isn't the place to admit mistakes.

But when our clients make them, we fix them. We can't reveal whose printing materials we've saved or who still has a job as a result of our ability to keep a finished product out of a landfill.

We block out incorrect words and add omitted information to a finished piece (even on the inside), and we make the correction look as good as the original printing. After you've kicked yourself (but before your deadline), give us a call.

Suffice it to say, we've salvaged advertising budgets and people's jobs for decades.

(But we'll keep it just between us.)​

Whether it's done by machine or by hand, we can find a more efficient way to do it. We assemble kits, create P.O.P displays, collate, insert and construct whatever you can imagine. Over the decades, we've combined some rather unusual tasks to make our clients' products stand apart from those of their competitors. Call us before everyone else tells you they can't do it.

Poly-Bagging

Poly-Bagging

Why spend time and money designing a "killer" advertisement, only to conceal it in an envelope?

Poly-bagging and shrink wrapping are inexpensive and durable alternatives that offer the advantage of enclosing multiple pieces in one unit.

Packages can be as thin as a few sheets or up to 3.5" thick and from 3.5"x 6" to 12"x48".

​We poly-bag or shrink wrap multiple components for kits or label packages for direct mail campaigns. Let your designs shine, and capture your target audience the moment they pick up your piece.

Shrink Wrapping

Keep it altogether new, with our state-of-the-art high speed shrink wrapping systems. Keep your product looking like the day it was manufactured. By shrink wrapping you have insured your product will arrive with the same quality you designed it around. Let us protect and preserve your investments. Give us a call.

Scratch-Off / Scratch 'n Sniff

Scratch-Off

Our in-house manufacturing facility employs state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge materials to add punch to your marketing pieces. A printed piece is just a printed piece. But when your client scratches off ink to reveal a prize or discount, you've entered the world of interactive marketing.

We can apply gold, silver, black, white or PMS color scratch-off to your printed sheets with complete finishing services or custom-design a piece to match your specifications. We know the capabilities and attraction of these concepts and can help you design a marketing piece that's a winner every time.

Scratch 'n Sniff

Entice your customers with interactive user-friendly Scratch 'n Sniff applications. More attractive than wet paint.
Scratch 'n Sniff tickles your curiosity and encourages interaction. Tickets, coupons, game cards. Call us, we'll give it a smell.

Numbering

Numbering/Imaging

One page isn't nearly enough space to list all of the uses for numbering: coupons, gift cards, lottery tickets... And that's just a start! We number on paper, plastic, card stock and a wide variety of other substrates. Numbering helps you maintain order, informs you of response location, discourages counterfeiting and adds another level of security. It all adds up. You can really count on numbering. We can even increase a response by covering the number with the enticing draw of Scratch off.

Our capabilities range from 2x3 cards to full size 23x35 posters; from single sheets to 1" thick catalogs. Number sizes range from 1/8" to 8", as many as 255 digits to more than 100 positions on a sheet.

Variations of numbering options include skip numbers, repeat numbers, numeric only, alpha numeric, with space, with dashes, many different typefaces, bar-coding, OCR, random, PINs and mod numbers.

Labeling

With our unique in-line labeling equipment,

we can affix labels to sheets, envelopes or catalogs. Need variable info on the labels like barcodes, alpha-numerics, sequential numbers, addresses…just ask. Call Howlan now!

Labeling
Product-Coupon

Product/Coupon Affixing

Membership cards, prepaid promotions and similar concepts not only create new business opportunities for you, but forge a bond with the cardholder and inspire loyalty that generates repeat business. Coupon affixing turns an ordinary promotion into an interactive piece that encourages your client to buy your product. With fugitive or permanent glue, we can affix almost anything on printed materials. We also image, fold and fugitive-glue-in-line. If you haven't considered the possibilities, call us.

Imprinting

Howlan can imprint on almost any printed product. The result is a more productive use and allocation of your advertising dollars, eliminating useless overruns of stock and wasteful obsolescence of your printed materials. You stretch your budget, while getting a better-looking, customized piece!

We also offer the ability to fix other people's printing mistakes.
