Die Cutting

Just as we are able to lithoprint we can also offer specialised die cutting service such as promotional boxes or special shape posters or point of sales items such as Table and shelf talkers.

Sometimes all you need is to stand out from the crowd occasionally, and this is specifically true when it comes to your printing and marketing materials. While the list of options, colors, papers and finishes is extensive, one unique custom feature that can set you apart is the use of a die cut.

But what exactly is a die cut, how are they created, and how do you use die cutting to really stand out with your printed piece?
A die cut is created by using a sharp steel blade formed into a specific shape, then cut through the paper. The shapes for die cutting are nearly limitless; circles, squares, holes, curves, stair-stepped, rounded corners, sharp points, just to name a few. The die cut form, or "die", is usually customised to the piece it is creating, and it creates a very crisp, smooth edge that can include fine detail and a very distinctive look, which cannot be achieved with a standard cut.
