Die-Cutting

Have a material which is not conducive to water jet or laser cutting? Need an affordable alternative for producing your design? We have the solution for you! Die cutting is a manufacturing process used to generate large numbers of the same shape from a fabric. The die-cut shapes are sometimes called "blanks", because they are usually finished and decorated before being sold. The process is widely used on an assortment of materials all over the world.

Sharp specially-shaped blades are used in die-cutting. The blade is bent into the desired shape and mounted. The result is known as a die. The material being cut is placed on a flat surface with a supportive backing, and the die is pressed onto the material to cut it. Depending on what is being made, a single die might cut one piece of material, or it might be designed to slice through multiple layers, generating a stack of blanks.

Many consumers find it helpful to consider a cookie-cutter when thinking about die-cutting. The cookie-cutter is a type of die which is capable of cutting out a potentially infinite amount of blanks. Each blank will be exactly the same shape and size, meaning that the blanks will be uniform. The alternative is cutting out each piece by hand, a painstaking process which would result in irregular final products.
