Die cutting is a method of creating flat cutouts from roll and sheet materials. Die cutting was created in the mid 1800s as a way to cut leather for the shoe industry more efficiently. But, the die cutting of today has come a long way since then. Die cutting machines of today are infinitely more versatile and complex, and as technology has advanced, so have die cutting machines.

Today’s die cutting machines use precision technology for a no-contact process that cuts and etches innovative and intricate designs for print mediums quickly and accurately. 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 other more intricate designs.
