INTRODUCING HP Durable Foldable Document Material Fold and Hold

HP introduces HP Durable Foldable Document Material, 3-in Core — a uniquely strong, yet flexible material that has amazing holding power. Once folded, documents lay flat and stay tightly folded with little expansion.

HP Durable Foldable Document Material, 3-in Core (DFDM) can be easily transported due to its thin, lightweight construction. This remarkably tough printing substrate was designed and tested to resist jamming in commercial folding machines. Engineered with DuPont™ Tyvek® material, it produces tear- and water-resistant, lay-flat, foldable maps, banners, and posters that can be grommeted and stitched.

Compatible with HP PageWide XL and HP DesignJet printers,* it is perfect for applications where durability and tear resistance are required.

Offer this trouble-free material with the unique “Fold n' Hold” properties.

4 Simple Ways to Print Green and Profit

The growth in consumer demand for sustainable products and services is an opportunity for Print Providers. Here are four simple practices that printers can adopt to reduce their impact on the environment and appeal to this growing market.

  1. Responsible media sourcing
    Ensure your media and other printing materials come from environmentally assured sources. HP offers printing products that are recyclable and have multiple environmental certifications.
  2. Partner with businesses recognized for their sustainable efforts
    Choose suppliers whose business philosophy and practices, as a whole, reflect a socially and environmentally committed approach. HP was ranked #1 Most Responsible Company in America for their environmental, social and governance performance and has won multiple awards for sustainable excellence.

    Embrace technologies, such as On-Demand Printing and Variable Data Printing, to reduce wasteful overprinting—printing only what’s needed.
