The ability to insert a tabloid flyer in a broadsheet copy with no mailroom input saves both time and money. And it can be done by using a KBA skip slitter in conjunction with a ribbon stitcher. When printing copies in collect mode every second section can be slit cleanly down the centre by the skip slitter using a scissor cut.
Generally the skip slitter is positioned in front of the RTF. The loose sections can either be delivered as single sheets or run past a ribbon stitcher to create a tabloid copy. Where there is one former at the folder the tabloid product is always in the centre of the newspaper. If there are two formers it can be inserted freely in the book structure. Such inserts are particular striking and therefore ideal for advertisements, TV guides or themed supplements.
