Die Cutting Services

It’s kind of like using a cookie cutter to cut an infinite number of shapes from freshly prepared dough, but with paper.

Die cutting is the fine art of using a specially shaped blade, or die, to cut a precise shape from a piece of paper.

The process allows for precision and unlimited replication, not to mention boundless opportunities for creativity and innovation. We put painstaking care into our custom die cutting services and custom perforation.

Die cutting around our shop is done with a razor sharp cutting rule on a Kluge press.  We can accept diecuts from one up to eight up, depending on the finished size.  In most applications, a channel score for a nice rounded, deep score is used.  For paper die cutting services, all paper products are hand fed with the available orientations being horizontal, vertical, or both in the same operation.

Custom Die Cutting Services:

Have a unique project in mind with a special vision for how it should look and feel? Great, because we feature custom die cutting services.

As with all of our custom printing services, die cutting and perforating services are carried out by hand. Here we add a bit of old-world quality and style to even the most modern applications, making use of equipment that dates back to 1890.  As the oldest letterpress shop in the northern Midwest, we’ve been at this for a long time — and we like to think it shows in the quality and craftsmanship of our printed products.

We offer free quotes for all die cutting and custom perforation services. So please be sure to contact us with details for your specific project.

If you can envision it, we like to believe we can print (or cut, or perforate) it!
