Die Cutting

'Make your print stand out with interesting die cutting'

What is Die Cutting?
In commercial printing, die cutting is a process that cuts slits or shapes out of a print project. The die cut is done after the project is printed but before it is folded, collated, or glued. With die cut you can create the same shape, with the exact same dimensions, over and over without using scissors, stencils, or a craft knife. It saves time and makes your cut-out shapes look professional and consistent every time.

Die cutting is part of the finishing process.
Die cutting is done after a print job has run through the printing press and is ready to be trimmed and finished in whatever manner the piece requires. A die is a thin, razor-sharp metal blade that is shaped, mounted on a base, and attached to a printing press. The printed sheets are then run through the press, and the die stamps each sheet individually to cut out the desired shape.
