Die Cutting

Die cutting is primarily used to cut windows and other shapes within the interior of a sheet. They may range from a single rectangular window to fancy lettering and multiple intricate designs. The process is also used to create glue tabs, pockets, cartons and special shapes along the outside edges of a finished sheet. Larkin can cut paper, plastic, lenticulars, magnets, foam core, vinyl, leather and various other substrates.

Larkin has standard dies and layouts available for many types of pocket folders. Please visit the Resources page for details.
