Die Cutting

Every business needs to stand out from the crowd, especially in print and marketing. Your main focus is on getting people’s attention in order to get them to take action. One of the best ways to do this is with die cutting. Since die cutting is used to cut different shapes within the interior of the sheet, allowing a color or design beneath to show through, die cutting lends a 3D effect to the item.

Using die-cutting print finishing techniques to create designs helps get the attention of your consumers by making your print marketing not only recognizable by sight, but also by touch. It is also not the most common marketing technique and creates a reason to be remembered.

Foil Stamping

Foil stamping can provide the ultimate in decorative appeal. And, foil stamping is not limited to gold and silver foils, but extend to an impressive range of pigmented, holographic and even security foils as well. This creates an eye-catching, shiny effect.

Foil stamping can be combined with embossed images or text to produce an immersive experience that will enhance the printed message and provide shelf appeal for greetings cards, brochures and more.


Embossing, as mentioned above, gives you the opportunity to enhance your print with stunning 3-D effects. You can subtly highlight a specific area or text or combine it with foil stamping or lamination for a bolder look.


Sometimes referred to as onserting, this is the automated gluing of items to direct mail pieces, covers, packages, backers, signatures and other carriers. You can draw attention to your print media by affixing free samples, static plastic or cardboard credit cards and more.

These are just some of the ways you can enhance your printed materials with a print finishing technique! For more information about print finishing for your Omaha business, call Larkin Industries at 651-645-6000, or you can Contact Us.
