Production Guidelines
Product Guidelines: 

Montana Cover combines a fine grain embossing with a high gloss acrylic coating, providing resistance to moisture and staining.


Most water based adhesives work well with Montana. Consult your adhesive supplier for more information.

Cutting and Die-cutting:

Montana Cover can be guillotine, rotary or die cut. All normal steel ruled die cutting processes may be used on Montana. It can be cleanly punched and will readily accept all conventional fasteners, such as grommets in one or two pieces. Montana Cover is ideally suited to die cutting.

Drying Time:

Due to the nature of acrylic coatings, there is no substrate absorbency to improve ink set and drying time. When applied to a nonporous surface, they require longer to dry.

Folding, Scoring and Gluing:

Montana Cover’s performance characteristics are well suited to folding, scoring and glueing.

Foil Stamping and Embossing:

Montana Cover is ideally suited to foil stamping and embossing. Consult your foil supplier and/or embosser for additional testing samples and more information.

Printing and Embossing:

Montana Cover yields excellent results when screen printed, foil stamped or embossed.

Scoring and Folding:

Montana has excellent hinge/fold characteristic. To fold or bend Montana, the stiffness of the sheet at the bending line must be lowered, and a flexible hinge formed within the sheet itself. A satisfactory score must reduce the bonding strength between the individual plies of the pressboard sheet, so that the plies will delaminate when the board is folded on the score line. In addition, the width of this delamination portion must be great enough to allow the stock to squeeze down into the bead on the inside of the bend, so that a fulcrum is not formed near the surface of the sheet which will rupture the outside ply when the bend is made. The "hinge" effect is achieved only when the inside of the bend is on the female die side (protruding side after scoring).

Screen Printing:

Montana is ideally suited to screen printing. Use solvent based inks for best results, and screen mesh sizes as recommended by ink manufacturer.
