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
