As we mentioned in this blog post, when folks are first learning about waterproof synthetic paper, they often ask how it can be used. Most prospective customers want to hear about how others have used synthetic paper first, which sparks their own ideas. In the printing industry, these project ideas are called “applications.” Applications are examples of the ways that a material (or “printing substrate”) can be used in the real world as a finished, printed piece.
More brand options means more application options
The expansion of our REVLAR waterproof paper line now gives our customers more application options than ever! Each REVLAR product has unique characteristics that make it better suited to certain projects. For example, Soft’s silky smooth feel translates well for guides and brochures, while Premium’s FDA compliance makes for ideal food-safe deli picks and menus. Select, on the other hand, is a great alternative to Premium when cost is the priority.
Based on these considerations, we created a table to share some tried and true examples of how to use REVLAR. Please keep in mind, these are just ideas to get you thinking. The pairings of these applications and particular REVLAR products are just suggestions. It’s always best to reach out to one of our specialty paper experts to talk through your options and get a recommendation catered to your specific needs.
Stand out customers
Now that you’ve seen some general applications, how about some customer spotlights?
Ryan Rud-Cloud from White Rabbit Copy Service and Digital Printing in Indiana recently shared this photo with us. He’s using REVLAR to make playing cards! Rud-Cloud told us:
“We use REVLAR 10.7 mil for playing cards, business cards, and small outdoor signs. People love the fact that we have playing cards that they don’t have to worry about getting wet or even dirty because they know they can clean them. Make a great gift for kids or for being outdoors. I am a BIG fan of RELYCO.”
Patti Feeley from Ideal Concrete Block in Massachusetts is using our REVLAR labels as signage at her business. Because these labels are waterproof and weatherproof, they hold up outdoors! Feeley said:
“We use the adhesive backed REVLAR for product display signs, which allows us to customize signs as needed. Great customer service!”
Thanks for sharing these examples, Ryan & Patti! It’s always great to see our products in action.
