    Die cutting

    Die-cutting is a process whereby a die is used to cut through materials such as paper and card on a die press. The process allows you to make an identical cut into material numerous times. For each job, a die, which is a shaped blade, is custom made for the item being created.

    A die cutting machine can fashion shapes with a single punch so that identical forms can be made very quickly – even a manual die cutter makes shapes more quickly than any alternative method.

    However, there are also some potential drawbacks to the process of die-cutting, which you need to appreciate:  

    You will need a new die for each design you create.
