Advantages of Die Cutting

Consistency. All the shapes cut will be exactly the same as they are based on the shape of the die.
Speed: Die cutting is really fast once the dies are made and your printing project is done quickly and accurately.
Reduced Waste: Die cutting creates less amount of waste than other cutting methods as it is a precise process using the least amount of waste of paper.

What are some examples of die cutting?

A great example of die cutting is a Door Hanger. A door hanger must have a hole or hook cut into it so it can hang from a doorknob or in your car off of your rear view mirror. Another great example of a die cut item is A mailing (window) envelope. Envelopes often have a die-cut window so that an address or information printed on its contents remains visible once the envelope is sealed.

How is die cutting done?

You create a simple sandwich between plates and put the die in with the sharp edge face down on the material. Then you wind the handle and the pressure is applied across the whole die, cutting through the card or paper as it passes through

How much does a die cost?

Each die-cut shape requires a custom cutting die or blade. Dies usually cost between $100 to $500, depending on size and complexity, and take several days to a week to make.

Can you cut shapes without a die cutting machine?

You are able to use die cuts without a machine and the aid of any difficult mechanics. However, there is no doubt that having to make and use die cuts manually will take up significantly more time than would be needed with a die cutting machine.

Can you die cut labels into shapes?

Yes! Die cutting is the process by which custom labels get their shape. Whether you want your products’ labels to have a simple rectangular or oval shape, round corners, or to have a more exciting form, a metal cut into shape them “die” during production.
