Custom Die Cutting Process

If you are interested in die cut printing services, we can help. When filling out the enquiry form, you have two options. You can either attach a visual of your artwork or describe the shape and size you’re for and we can provide a quote for you. Either way, we’ll work with you to make sure we fully understand your vision.

When sending your artwork, we will need what’s called a ‘cutter guide’. This is simply a line we use to create the cutter shape. This should be a separate layer from the rest of the artwork as a closed path that returns to where it started. If you don’t have one, don’t worry! Our talented team can create one for you in our studio. Once we have the cutter guide, we’ll get right to work creating your custom die cut design.

We take pride in only using the best materials and equipment to ensure your final product is of the highest quality. So, whether you have a design or need one created, don’t hesitate to reach out and we can help you get started on your project.


Die cutting is a process used to cut materials into specific shapes or designs that can’t be achieved with a straight guillotine cut. This means if you have a design with intricate angles or curves, die cutting is the way to go.

Because of the process involved in creating the dies, die cutting normally adds two or three extra days onto most jobs.

All we need from you is a closed-path line in a solid colour (not tinted or pale) saved as a pdf file. Many of our clients use Illustrator to create their cutter guide, but other programmes can also be used. You can then email us your file.

Because our special tool involves bending a 1mm thick metal blade to fit a hole slit in plywood, it allows us to create precise cuts in materials like paper, cardboard and other materials. However, some designs may have corners or details that are too small for a metal blade to be bent. In these cases, the cutting is done with a laser which burns the cut line.

Rest assured, our team of experts will work with you to determine the best cutting method for your design.

We understand that you may want to see a sample of our work before committing to a larger project. We typically offer samples of similar work so you can get an idea of the quality and get a feel of how your design might look on a finished product.
