Perforated Paper

Perforated paper is a sheet of paper or card stock that has perforated lines of very small holes punched into the paper. This perforation allows parts of the sheet to be separated simply by folding and tearing along the dotted line. We offer two kinds of perforation:

  • Micro perforation contains 30 perforations per inch. It is normally used for separating items on a sheet.
  • Macro perforation, also called stub perforation, contains 12 perforations per inch. It is sturdier and can withstand more handling than the micro perforation. It is used for detachable stubs on tickets.

Macro perforation

Micro perforation

Here's an example of a 4 columns, 2 rows perforation layout with (optional) horizontal stub perforations across all pieces. With the 8.5" x 11" stock, it gives you 8 easily separable tickets from each sheet, each ticket sized 5.5" x 2.125", with a 1.5" tear-away stub.
