The Big Easy: Pre-Converted Substrates

Nah, we’re not talking ‘bout New Orleans. But the same easy-going vibe will describe your workflow—and your customers’ reactions—once you start using pre-converted substrates in the new Mohawk Dimensional product line.

You buy pre-converted envelopes, so why not buy pre-converted boxes, pocket folders, door hangers, tent cards and more? Pre-converted forms, designed to run on digital presses, eliminate time-consuming finishing steps and the need for expensive finishing equipment. Consider the benefits: No more gluing, perforating, scoring…just print, fold and assemble. It’s a fast—easy—way to save you and your customers time and money.

Run it, pop it, fold it…done

Mohawk’s Dimensional substrates come on a variety of Mohawk digital papers and in a wealth of formats that are easy to use and readily available. Here’s how they work:

• Lay out your job to correspond to the templates (download Mohawk’s PDF templates here).

• Digitally print. It’s simple to integrate variable print or other customization processes.

• Fold back the edge and start popping it out.

• Close it up and you’re done.

Here’s another benefit: Your customers can store printed templates flat. You can print and deliver the job, and your customer just stores and uses them one at a time. They’re that easy to put together.

High quality substrates lead to loads of potential

Mohawk Dimensional products are a fast, high-value solution for a wide range of branding and marketing needs. Think door hangers, luggage tags, dimensional boxes, short-run packaging forms. Mohawk Dimensional products have universal appeal.

Here are just a few of the markets with super potential for sales:

Colleges: Tent cards, greeting cards, boxes, pocket folders

Casinos: Door hangers, tent cards, wine bottle boxes

Hospitality: Event-related clients—weddings, for example—need gift boxes, door hangers, greeting cards, wine bottle boxes…even golf ball sleeves

Healthcare: Pocket folders, boxes, boxes and more boxes

The beauty of the Mohawk Dimensional line is you can bring your client a premium presence for less…and at a high level of quality that ensures consistency on press. Papers in the Mohawk Dimensional line are made with Mohawk’s legendary premium grades, such as Mohawk Superfine Eggshell i-Tone, Mohawk Via Linen i-Tone, and Mohawk Color Copy Ultra Gloss. The portfolio includes sheets of 18 x 12 or 20.5 x 14.33 paper pre-scored and perforated in unique shapes and formats.

Sample packs of Mohawk Dimensional Products are available at Click here for Superfine samples, here for Via samples, and here for Color Copy samples. Samples are also available through your merchant or Mohawk sales representative. Dimensional templates are available for download here at

    Do you have instructions or a video on how to close and seal the wine box securely. We ran some samples and did not think about it until we went to fold it and there are no tabs to insert.

    Hi Steve,

    We recommend a particular two sided tape or glue stick detailed in our Dimensional Hints & Tips PDF linked below:

    This should be applied to the side flap and the bottom flaps.

    If you have any additional questions, you can email us at makeready(at)

    Could you please send me a templete that is actual size for your 3 golfball
    sleeve. I am working on some artwork for a customer, and I want to make sure all the measurements are correct to print off on your coated paper that they purchased.

    Thank You.

    Hi Jo Anne,

    All of our dimensional templates can be found here:

    We don’t have a 3-up Golf Ball Sleeve, but we do have a few versions of 2-up. If you could be more specific on which Mohawk product you’re looking for (item # or description) we’d be happy to point you in the right direction to the specific template.
