Printing is a fascinating and ever-evolving process which never fails to impress. Then again if printing is a show-stopper, it’s clearly the print finishing which takes center stage. One of the common technique in print finishing services is die cutting. It is used to produce unique shapes, message windows, and edges in greeting cards as well as in other stationery design elements. As crude as it may sound, die cutting isn’t a violent task. It is not a top-secret hazing test on how to become a printer, nor is any one going to be hurt because of it. Actually, die cutting is like making a cookie cutter for your printed material.

Die cutting is a really crucial part of the print finishing process when creating something for print. It is part of the print finishing process and comes after a print-job has been run through the printing-press and is ready for trimming and finishing in whatever fashion the piece requires. Die cutting entails the use of a specialized thin razor-sharp steel blade tool known as a die. The die is shaped, affixed on a base and mounted to a printing press similar to an antiquated letterpress and is then used to shape the print material using a press.

Die cutting is mostly used as a technology – turning an industrial process into a design element. It is a reasonably flexible technology which can achieve tons of diverse shapes. It can be used to create flaps, holes, rounded corners, windows or pop-ups. Die cutting may be solely attention-grabbing, or decorative, cutting shapes into a print-job to make it more eye-catching or noticeable. Contour die cuts can closely or loosely follow the shape of a portrait.

We Can Help With Custom Die Cut Projects

If you’ve ever seen an advert in the-shape of a baseball, or a kids-menu in the shape-of an animal, then you’ve seen die cutting. Other very typical examples include the slits in a printed piece to hang on a doorknob, the curved corners of business-cards, or the perforations along the-top of a business form. Yes, these are all cut with dies. In each of these, metal is curved and bent into the desired shape and then placed onto a kind of press that cuts the paper to the form.
The limitation relate to the manipulation and bending of the metal itself. Die cutting is mostly preferred for larger, less intricate shapes and is therefore not suitable for very complex shapes. If you’ve a very intricate design in mind, then you can opt for other options, such as laser cutting. But for most print finishing projects die cutting is the most-straight forward and cost effective technique.
