What is die cutting?
The term die cutting defines the process that is used to cut a flat and thin material, in order to produce a specific and precise shape. Born to cut leather, this method is now used in typography to cut paper, card and cardboard, in order to create customized printing products.

What is a die?
Die-cutting tools are used for die-cutting operations, special tools consisting of a steel band with a cutting upper profile that reproduces a specific shape. The dies allow to perform a precise cut on paper, cardboard, leather, fabrics, rubbers and plastics, giving the printed matter a personalized shape.

The digital die-cutting , ideal for short runs, is a flat plotter die-cutting system, equipped with a cutting blade and creasing tool. Therefore, thanks to this system, there is no longer the need to produce a die whose cost would significantly affect the final price.
