  • Die cutting Die cutting uses a pre-designed cutting tool in order to create unique and distinctive shapes to a variety of substrates. Objects can have several die cut elements which need to be assembled in order to create a finished product.
  • Perforating Perforations are small notches in the material which make it easy to tear away a section of the paper. Perforation doesn’t have to be in a straight line. It can be made similar to a bespoke die cut pattern. Perforations have a number of uses in both commercial print and in packaging.
