Die Cutting Service

Die-cutting and digital CAD cutting

With our Heidelberg Cylinder SB die-cutter (suitable for paper and board products up to 520 x 720 mm), and Zund G3 L2500 Digital CAD cutter (for materials up to 60 mm thick and items up to 1800 mm wide and any roll length), we’re able to offer a complete range of printing and die cutting services for paper and board printed materials.

Full range of existing cutting formes

The most common requirement for die cutting is the folder and our extensive range of existing formes means we can meet most requirements – oversize A4 or A5, glued or tabbed, with / without pockets, with / without capacity – using a cost effective, off-the-shelf design.

We also have existing cutting formes for products such as DVD wallets, circular self adhesive stickers and radius corner business cards.

We have made the most commonly used of these available online so you can download the forme you need and produce your artwork to precisely the right size. View and download our existing forms here.

Formes to match your bespoke designs

We can of course supply cutting formes to your exact requirements and produce materials to any shape you need, including cut-outs, perforations, creases, stepped indexes and radius corners.

Folders, brochures, wallets and envelopes are typical applications but we can of course design and deliver any other cut-to-shape printed item you might be looking for. All you have to do is ask.

Digital CAD cutting

Our comprehensive range of screenprinting and large format digital printing equipment allows us to produce a full range of display and POS materials, and the investment we’ve made in our Zund G3 CAD cutting device means we retain total control of the process.

The potential applications are endless: dump bins, display boards, exterior A boards, counter top displays, cubes, boxes, wobblers, stickers, self clings, floor vinyls, standees, shelf strips, counter top displays, leaflet dispensers, hanging boards, Correx signs, corrugated displays, exhibition panels and more.

And our in-house expertise in delivering innovative and cost-effective cardboard engineering solutions means we’re able to match the outstanding flexibility of our equipment with real advice on how best to achieve the results you’re looking for.

Special printing and finishing - from spot varnish to scratch cards

Not only do we have a full range of litho, digital and screen printing equipment, but we also offer all the finishing services you’d expect of a one stop shop print group, and one or two more besides. And we do it all in-house, which allows us to retain control of quality, turn things around extra quick when need be, and keep your costs as low as possible.
