We Are Back!

keep-calm-we-re-backAfter the events of Monday morning there was so much uncertainty as to when we would be back up and running at our headquarters here in Westfield, MA and we are happy to announce that as of noon yesterday (4/8/14), We’re BACK!

There is quite a bit of cleanup going on around us with electricians, disaster recovery personnel, insurance adjusters and our own employees working their tails off to get back to full operations.

At this point I’d say we are at about 80% capacity and moving fast towards 100%. We can’t thank everybody enough for the effort of each and every person doing their part to get this company back on track, especially the owner Robert Danczak and Doug Lyman who have worked tirelessly since the fire to get everyone in here, working and getting paid.

Mr. Danczak prides himself in providing jobs in this community and keeping those who work for him employed and providing for their families and we thank him for that.

Any orders that were pending from over the weekend and Monday have been processed and shipped. Any questions feel free to call us M-F 8-4:30pm at 800-831-3220

Fire at Our Headquarters in Westfield, MA

Fire @ JC Danczak, Inc.

At about 9:15 this morning (4/7/14) our Monday work duties were interrupted abruptly by a raging fire on the dock outside of our headquarters. Good news is that all employees of JC Danczak, Inc. are safe and accounted for. The bad news is that we have obviously sustained quite a bit of fire, smoke and water damage.

At this point we are not sure when we will be back up and running at full capacity. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to each and everyone of our loyal customers. Any orders placed over the weekend and up until the time of this announcement/post will not be processed.

This announcement is being posted from my home as we cannot enter our offices until a state sanctioned fire inspector allows us to re-enter the building. At that point we will asses the damage and take the necessary steps to get up and running as soon as humanly possible. Any questions about your order can be submitted via the contact form on our website, unfortunately that is the only means of communication that we have at the moment. We will contact you as soon as possible with the status of your order.

JC Danczak, Inc. runs several websites out of this facility. This means that all of the following websites will be affected by this mornings events.

All that you wanted to know about Ziplock Bags

ziplock-bagsBags meant for storage often find usage in homes. There are some bags that are of one time use and there are some that can be reused again. Those that can be reused are termed as resealable or reclosable bags. One such kind includes ziplock bags. These bags are meant for storing usually food and dairy products. Made of Polyvinyl Chloride, the bags are meant for storing deep freeze food items usually.

These bags are different from resealable bags in a way they are closed. The bags are closed with seals by pressing and opened with hands. In ziplock bags, the packets are resealed and opened by Zips that can be dragged on the edges of the bag. You may get many kinds of bags available in market that vary in different shapes and sizes. From square to rectangular they come in more shapes than one can think of. The sizes can be as small as the size of a computer mouse and as big as a computer screen. Small ones are used invariably in storing items like stamps; buttons, coins, toy parts etc. and large ones are used to store materials like clothes and electronic items.

Shielded bags are also reclosable bags that are used often in storing items like remote controls, batteries etc. These bags are sold with casings in market. They can be also used to store ornaments because the use of transparent bags will not serve the benefit of storing ornaments in shielded bags. They are used in storing high sensitive components that does not allow the material stored inside to decay.

Reclosable bags are basically meant for retaining the vacuum inside the bag so that moist, dust, dirt and insects are kept at bay. The zip in ziplock bags is made of plastic usually but can be made of other materials like wood too. Often the materials through which the zip is made is said to be light in weight. They are either equivalent to the bag’s weight or lighter than it.

These bags are great for storing purposes because they help in more ways than one. They help today and will continue to do so in future as they are hardly irreplaceable.

Use of Kraft Paper in creating stationery boxes

a9-kraft-2-pieceIn order to create papers, there are some chemical pulping processes used. In these processes separations of cellulose fibers from lignin takes place. Lignin is first dissolved in liquor. The papers made through this process is also called wood free papers. The kinds of chemical pulping processes used in creating paper are sulphite and kraft processes. The kraft paper is the most used method. However there are other advantages to this method. It is used to create electricity which is produced by heat created through the chemical reaction with lignin. This electricity produced is used to run the generators. Also the method recovers the inorganic chemical reagents.

Kraft paper is also called sack kraft paper or sack paper. It is porous in nature and have high elasticity. The pulp reamed in the kraft process is stronger than sulphite processes. The main reason behind this strength is low content of lignin. Linens are hydrophobic and usually interferes with the cellulose fiber’s hydrogen bond. The paper produced through this process is darker. However through bleaching processes the paper can be made white.

Kraft papers have many uses to its credit. They are used to create paper folders which are used to keep all important documents and papers. They are used in producing envelopes, Multiwall sacks and grocery bags. For sandpaper the base paper is the kraft paper. Since it is cheap, the paper is also used in lining particle boards. Stationery boxes created from kraft papers are used avidly. It is a perfect way to keep all items in one place. The boxes are having silver holes on both sides that can be used for holding purposes.  The stationery boxes are a perfect gift for housewarmings, birthdays, wedding anniversary and Christmas.

Why kraft papers are used in making stationery boxes and other so many areas is because of their varied quality and features. The prime quality being that it is strong and have high tensile strength. It has high tear resistance and is used invariably to create products that are of high strength and durability. The paper is highly absorbent in nature and has a good uniformity.

Congratulations! Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.

—Dr. Seuss, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

A very good friend of mine once told me “If it’s meant to be, it is up to me”. Such a simple phrase with such a powerful message. Class of 2012 if it’s meant to be it is up to YOU!
