Sourcing good die-cut & folding printer solution

Hi folks, sent out some quotes to printers that the Goog served up, but I'd like to know if anyone could recommend a printer that can offer custom die-cut and folding services. I'm designing some tap-handle inserts for a brewery and they want an accordion-style piece of paper that can fold to display whatever the current brew is.

Any help is appreciated,
thx,
nf

Call a local print shop. Explain what you are trying to get done. Ask them who they would recommend. Most print shops will have several trade die-cut shops they will use. Each specializing in certain products. They should be able to send you in the right direction. Call a larger print company as they be doing more diversified work.

have you checked out foldfactory.com?

there's not a single place on the site that lists all of the companies who will do that sort of work...but scattered throughout - the Resources section, and some of the examples that Trish uses in her blog - mention specific firms by name.

I'm thankful for the suggestions, I'll vet 'em out. Nextdayflyers.com looks like a contender so far based on the quote I've gotten, though my client would have to fold the product themselves: not so bad with a pre-score made.

thx,
nf
