FAQs

How can I receive training on your products?

There are several ways to learn more about our capabilities and the sales opportunities they can generate for your company.  Your first step should be to review our various product and market kits available to you from our website.  Once you determine those of most interest to you, contact our sales team at 800.835.0098.  They will help you understand the uniqueness of each application.  Another option is an online webinar presented by one of our sales managers.  These are interactive sessions that can include your entire sales team.  If you have a sales force of more than 10 representatives, we suggest a Lunch & Learn program where one of our sales managers  travels to your location for a face to face presentation.   These take more planning due to the travel involved, however, can be highly effective in helping your sales team truly understand the applications and market they can penetrate.

I have a specific vertical market I want to penetrate.  How can Flesh Co help me?

We have several vertical market kits already available from our Marketing Support team.  Simply go to Fleshco.com and navigate to our sample request page.  There you will find a wide array of kits available to you at no cost.

I understand integrated cards and labels are a high growth and profit area but I don't really understand how they are used.

Contact one of our sales team at 800.835.0098 and ask them to explain the basics of integrated solutions.  They will also send you one of our Integrated Solutions kits.   Once you receive it, review all the samples, then contact us at anytime with further questions.

I have a client who wants to reduce the number of forms in their system.  How can I help them?

This is typical of many companies, especially those who have been in business for many years.  Some forms they may have designed years ago and some probably just "appeared" over time.   The best solution is to get 2-3 samples of every form or label used as well as an idea of how they are used.   Send one sample of each to our sales team.    We can then set up a conference call to review the applications and designs and offer suggestions to take back to your customer.  These are great opportunities to provide more effective designs to improve the efficiency of their workflow process.

I have a customer who wants to be able to authenticate event tickets.  What should I suggest?

There are several means of authentication which can be both overt and covert in nature.  Thermochromic inks and UV black lights are two of the most often used tactics.  See our document security whitepapers for more information.

Does Flesh Co print vital records?

Yes.  Vital records normally consist of birth and death certificates.  These are often targets for counterfeiting and should have a wide array of security features to prevent duplication or alteration.

How are integrated cards made?

In the simplest form, a special two ply laminate is applied to the back of a 28# ledger sheet which was printed in our offset division.  The face of the sheet is then die cut using precision equipment to cut the paper and the first ply of the laminate, allowing the card to be peeled away.

Are integrated cards laser compatible?

Yes.  Even if your client requires a face lamination, we can create integrated cards for laser or ink jet imaging.

How many colors can you print on a pressure sensitive label?

Our flexo presses are  8 color units.   So we can print 8 colors or 7 colors and a UV coating.

Who owns Flesh Co?

Flesh Co remains a family owned business which began in 1913.  Currently our CEO is Roy V. Flesh II who is the third generation.  His daughter, Jillian Flesh, is our Executive Vice President.

What security features should I include on my clients checks?

Security design is based on the level of risk to the client.  In most cases using a security paper and a minimum of four print security features is protection from amateur criminals.  For a better understanding of the proper use of layered security features, download our whitepaper on Document Security and Understanding Risk Analysis.

My customer wants security thread in their document,  is that even possible?

Security thread embedded in a paper is available, however this is normally limited to vehicle titles.  Custom paper can be ordered with a security thread with a five ton minimum.   Custom thread is available, however, this does require a longer lead time for production.  Contact our sales team so that we can understand the full nature of your client's counterfeit concerns.

Who can assist me if my Sales Representative is not in the office?
