Custom Die Cut specializes in finishing work for printers and designers throughout the USA. We value all of our customers and believe that there is
no job too large or small.
There are many types of embossing, debossing and stamping combinations available to our customers. We use the best engravers in the industry. They are remarkably dedicated to quality workmanship and fast turnaround.
A die is made by cutting a piece of wood the full size of the product you are producing. Then the wood is jigged to create your design. Steel rules are placed on the area jigged and this will show scores, perforations, tabs, and pockets. For labels, the steel rules make a slight cut/separation, so the labels can peel off the paper. This is called a kiss- cut. The die will be set up on the machine, and as each sheet of paper runs through the press they are cut out to the size and shape of the designed product.
A copper die is created for the designed piece. To create the die we need either a file; Quark Express, or Adobe Illustrator, negative, positive, and sometimes a printed sheet to show positioning. This die is used for flat stamping which is one level.
Multi- Level Emboss-Stamping
A brass die is created for this design. The design can be in many levels and shows much more detail. Embossing creates the paper to lift, we stamp over the embossed area with foil.
Some jobs must be folded or glued/taped by hand in the bindery department. Others are done on our folding/gluing machines. We have specially tooled machines depending on the designs' specifications.
A brass die is created for blind embossing when you are having more than one level. When there is only one level a copper die is used. When blind embossing there is no foil and the design will be the color of the paper or ink.
A brass die is created for debossing when there is more than one level. Copper dies are used for only one level. When debossing the paper level goes inward instead of being lifted.
Stripping excess paper not used in the design that is now waste.
