As you browse the Whitaker Brothers website you will see a large selection of products in several different categories. As a leader in the data destruction industry you will find products that destroy paper, CDs, credit cards even dice. You can head over to our mailing side and look into folder inserters, postage machines even address printers. I always love to tell customers that you can give us a piece of paper and we can sell equipment that can cut-it, fold it, crease it, mail it and of course destroy it. The one product we offer that gets over-looked is a paper folder. This machine does the simplest job and folds a piece of paper. When I first started at Whitaker Brothers, I asked myself who buys a machine to just fold paper. What I soon learned, the better question was who possibly could not use one.
On any given week we will work with a local church helping them pick the perfect folder to fold the weekly bulletins. A small business that needs a folder to help them fold invoices to get to customers. Folders have helped engineering firms get the unique fold to help them finish a proposal. You name the type of business or industry and we have helped them solve an issue with a paper folder.
When it comes to paper folders , even though it does a simple task there are several key pieces of information you will need before figuring out the correct one to buy. The first and most important question is what type of paper in terms of size, and weight . As certain folders can only handle certain sized paper and if you want to fold card stock or glossy paper you will have to move to an air-fed folder. The second main question is how much will you be folding. The volume of the jobs will you need completed will help determine the correct machine as well.
To keep this introduction to paper folders simple, I will focus on one more key feature. Paper folders can be automatic or manual. A manual folder requires the end user to adjust the plates to create the different folds. As an automatic folder has most of the main jobs pre-programed so changing different types of jobs can be done by simply pressing a few buttons.
As you can see a machine that does just a simple job can have so many different options. So whether you are a small church with a few bulletins a week or a print shop looking to expand, Whitaker Brothers will work with you and recommend the best folder for your needs.
