Production Guidelines
Product Guidelines: 

The Grafton line features uncoated as well as coated and embossed options.

Folding and Scoring: 

Grafton scores and folds well and has excellent hinge characteristics.

Foil Stamping: 

Grafton yields excellent results when foil stamped.and embossing. Consult your foil supplier for recommendation based on artwork.

Offset Printing:

Select 100% oxidizing inks with good rub resistance. Grafton coated grades may require additional drying time; drying additives may help. We recommend  using a 50-52 micron spray powder. Adjust the micron size to match ink coverage. For the uncoated grades, large areas of solid coverage may require a second hit or an additional screen tint to achieve full color value. Consult your ink supplier for best results.

Calculation Tools
Calculation Tools:
 

LB per FT2= BW/3000

$/FT2 = LB. per FT2 X $ per LB

$ per MSF = $/Ton X BW/6000

$ per LB. = $/CWT/100

$ per Ton = 6000 X BW + $ per MSF X 6000

M Weight = L X W X BW/432

$ per Sheet = M Weight/1000 X $ per LB.

Number of Sheets = Total Weight/LB. per sheet

Order Weight = LB/Sheet X Number of Sheets

Linear Feet in Roll = 41.67 X Net Weight (lb.) X 864/Roll Width X BW

Roll Weight = OD2 - ID2 Roll Width X BW X .00182/Caliper [.020" = 20]

Roll Weight from Lineal Feet = Roll Width X BW X Lineal Ft./36,002

Price per Linear Foot = Weight (lb.) X $/cwt./Linear Feet

Notes:
· BW = Basis Weight
· All formulas with basis weights assume a 36 X 24" cover basis (3000 FT2)
     · (36*24)/144*500 [i.e., the weight per 500 sheets or ream]
· MSF = 1000 Square Feet
