Die Cutting



We all need to stand out from the crowd occasionally.  And this especially rings true when it comes to your marketing and printing materials.  While the list of options, colors, papers, and finishes are extensive, one unique custom feature that can set you apart is the use of a die cut.  But what exactly is a die cut, how are they created and what are the benefits?  

A die cut is created by using a sharp steel blade formed into a specific shape, then cut through the paper.  Think about how a steel cookie cutter would work; just substitute the dough with paper.  The shapes for die cutting are nearly limitless - circles, squares, holes, curves, stair stepped, rounded corners and sharp points just to name a few.  The die cut form is usually customized to the piece it is creating, and it creates a very crisp, smooth edge that can include fine detail and a very distinctive look, which can't be achieved with a standard cut.  The products you use die cuts on are wide ranging.  Door hangers, postcards, brochures and presentation folders are all great applications for die cutting.  

At Pro Printing we can accommodate all your die cutting needs.  We have all the tools and equipment necessary to give you a stunning and professional piece.
