Die Cutting NYC
Die Cutting is the process used to cut out shapes that are not possible with a guillotine.
Use of Die-Cut
It is commonly used for Folders, Invitation, Point of Sale and Die Cut Business Cards, but can be applied to many printed items for a stunning effect. The cut out is made at the end of the printing process. Folding and any "glue-ups" are done aterwards if necessary.
How we do DieCutting
The cut is made using a special die shaped as the design. The die has sharp metal strips placed into a CNC cut block. The printed sheet is pressed onto the die using a high pressure roller which punches out the desired shape. This works alot like a "cookie cutter".
An infinite number of shapes can be used to create awesome effect on mailers, folders and point of sale material, ensuring your promotional literature stands out in a crowd. It doesn't only have to be the outer shape either, you could use a die to create a hole in your design! We recently produced a Floristry mailer die cut in the shape of a Poinsettia. Our own Holiday cards had the New York City Skyline diecut out. Novel mailers like this often generate better results than 'standard' size square cut ones as the novelty makes your item stand out. We have produced die cut mailers in the shape of snowmen, guitars and many more intricate designs. There are too many variables to list on this website - so please call for more details.
