Metal Hammer magazine wanted to look different on a congested retail merchandising shelf. A high quality full colour lenticular mount  would provide a high impact cover.

Each of the lenticular covers was applied by hand. The lenticular cover was secured in place with two strips of  glue applied by hand using a roller gun, creating a very secure bond. The mount was pressed down by hand to ensure it looked part of the magazine.

Once applied the front cover looked an intrinsic part of the magazine.

Final operation was the hand packing of a mouse mat, magnet and magazine into a clear sleeve

The final operation was adding the extra items to the magazine. A promotional mouse mat was hot melted  to the back of the magazine and fridge magnet was hot dotted to the mouse mat. The product was now ready to be bulk wrapped, palletised and shipped for distribution.

The mounting of the lenticular cover onto the front of the magazine, demonstrates a typical hand placing project for Peterborough Finishing & Mailing Services where the hand placement provides additional value to the client.
