Die – Cutting in print
Whether you’re a small business, a new business, an existing and established company, a large scale multi-location business, a mobile company or remotely located, one thing that’s likely is that you will have competition in your field, and when you have to compete with so many businesses in your sector, your marketing material needs to stand out from the crowd.
In such instances using a different and unique technique on your printed products can be a good way to do this.
One such technique is die-cutting, This involves cutting out complex shapes from paper using a cutting forme.
This cutting forme is produced from plywood with the cutting template laser cut into it.
A metal cutting rule is then carefully moulded into the desired shape and inserted into the plywood to create a reliable and robust cutting tool.
You may wonder what the use for this die cut technique is. Well, its very popular with all kinds of products, from creating the internal storage of folders, cutting into envelopes, and making unusual and visually appealing report covers.
It’s a unique way of modernising and creating impact from your printed marketing material, a way of creating print that stands out.
Die-cutting shapes in print have also become increasingly popular for business cards, to create an effect that stands out from the traditional rectangular piece of card. Add to this an effective use of colour, paper texture and visual design and you have yourself a truly original end product that can make you more noticeable from your peers.
