Superblue Base Covers, Buy 1 get 1 at 50% off

Superblue anti marking base cover sale from National Offset Warhouse

Phone offer only! Call us today! 800-669-0654

Are you getting marking on your press transfer cylinders, even with SuperBlue nets?
Are your nets wearing out too fast? Are you changing them too often?

You may want to upgrade your old SuperBlue base covers (under the nets) on your
transfer cylinders, to maximize the performance of your nets and lower your costs. Base
covers normally 5 or more years, if maintained properly. When worn out, base covers can
cause marking and lower net life costing make-ready time and net changing downtime.
New covers often improve anti-marking performance dramatically and make nets last
longer, saving you money. Also with every cover, included in one SuperBlue Stripenet.

Save hundreds of dollars! This is a limited time offer.
Call us today for details and a quote.

National Offset Warehouse 1-800-669-0654

Not using SuperBlue Anti Marking Systems? Labor-intensive hand washing of transfer cylinders is costing you
press downtime and excess labor. If the cost of installing the base covers has prevented
you from using the best-known anti-marking system in the industry, now is the time to
consider equipping your press. Our base cover prices are lower than ever before! Add
to that our “Buy 1, Get 1 for half-price offer” and now is the time to solve your marking
problems with the only wash-free anti-marking system in the industry.

Call us today to discuss the SuperBlue answer to your sheet-marking problems!
