All about die cutting

One of the processes Foiling Services specialise in is die-cutting. This technique of printing is to mainly produce unique edges, shapes, and message windows for stationary elements. We are highly experienced and can produce excellent results with this method.

So what does the technique involve?

Die-cutting is a method used to cut a thin flat material into specific shapes. Decorative shapes or patterns can be combined with a larger piece of material with ease. Die-cut elements can be used to draw attention to the nature of the material. In industrial processes die cutting is employed to help turn objects, like keyrings and coasters, into decorative pieces.

There are a few different types of die cutting machines available, ensuring there are options to suit every preference. Here is a run-down of the options:

Electronic – these are high end die cutting machines as they cut down a lot of physical work for the user. They work similarly to the manual version, however use a motor instead of a crank system. The machine puts pressure on either side of your material, such as holographic foil, whilst rolling.

Manual – these machines are more affordable and easier to transport. They work the same as electronic versions, except, as mentioned, they use a crank system.

Computerised – these use a built-in graphics program to make design and use easier. The print possibilities are endless when using this die cutting machine.

Foiling Services provide a wide range of specialist services, delivering excellent standards and focusing on meeting the needs of our clients. Some of the prints/foils we offer for our die cutting service are metalized, marble, holographic, and granite prints.
