Straight-Line, Pin-hole Perforating Services


The Olathe Poste operates a 1916 vintage, heavy-duty, motorized (220V AC 3-phase) Rosback straight-line, pin-hole perforator.

  • Maximum dimension of paper & perforation lines is 22 inches (558.8mm).

  • Perforation Spec: 12-67 US Standard Gauge (hole dia. 0.0415" OD, spacing between holes: 0.067"


Because of the age of our perforating equipment, there are a few things to bear in mind when designing your stamp sheets...

  • Alignment of perforation (pattern) lines are more of a visual function, reliant on the perforator operator, than that of a mechanical function.
  • 1/8" MARGINS BETWEEN ROWS & COLUMNS of stamp images on the sheet produce the best, most authentic looking stamps.
  • All margins should be sized the same.
  • All stamp images on a sheet should be sized identically.
  • Bulls-eye perforation patterns cannot be accomodated.
  • Stop-Short perforation patterns CAN be accomodated in most cases.
  • We DO NOT perforate self-adhesive papers. FIND SELF-ADHESIVE SOLUTIONS HERE

Turnaround times: on average, 2-3 reams of stamp sheets can be pinhole perforated per day (standard sizes & patterns). For small stamp sizes or special patterns, please allow for additional production time to complete your order.
