Design Tips - Die Cutting

1. The minimum width for an image to be die-cut is 3mm. This is due to tooling restrictions. We can cut finer than this by laser cutting and using an alternative tooling solution.

2. We hold a stock of C6, DL, C5 and C4 envelope cutters. If you have a specific envelope size in mind, and it isn't available 'off the shelf', we can usually provide a cost effective solution.

3. When die-cutting a folder or box we offer a CAD cutting service so final tolerances can be adjusted before we go to the expense of making the cutter. We recommend this on projects where there is uncertainty over the finished piece.
