If you’re not acquainted with die cutting, let us introduce you. A die cutting machine is used to cut different shapes of material, usually card or paper, using a combination of rollers and cutting plates to put pressure on a die and push it through the card or paper to create a shape with neat and precise outlines. It’s these shapes that form the basis of your product, cut from high-quality material and printed in exceptional colour. At Avenue, we specialise in die cutting printing to produce a range of quality corporate printed products.

Just like with any other printed product, it’s important to take certain considerations into account while brainstorming your project. When it comes to die cut printing, here are three of the most important factors to consider:
Die cutting is considered a supplementary special finish, which means that it’s going to add a supplementary cost to your initial order, whether you’re ordering boxes, wallets, leaflets, or something else.
Die cut printing can be an aesthetic feature, rather than something practical (obviously for packing and folders, die-cutting is essential). This means that design is highly important if you want to render a beautiful final product call on at Avenue printing, we work with lots of different designers and artists who can help you bring your ideas to life and create something special.
As previously mentioned, die-cutting can be an aesthetic feature, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be used to enhance the functionality of your printed product. While die cutting is often used to create something unique, creative, and playful, it can also be used to create easy-to-use items such as boxes and wallets.
If you’re going to be using die-cut printing for functionality, it’s important to consider the logistics of your printed product before proceeding with your order. You’re going to want to ensure that your printed product is readable and usable with the die cut feature integrated into the design. If you are unsure or need advice, our studio can help you create die-guides for your products.
Die cut printing is slightly more expensive than other more traditional forms of bulk printing. Die cut printing is created by using a die cutting machine, as its another process that takes a little longer too. The final cost of your printing order will depend on the following:
Like any other printed product, the number of printed items you order will influence the overall final price for your project. As die cut printing can be slightly more expensive than a regular finish, many customers may only use die-cut finishes for non-bulk orders or one-time projects. At Avenue, we’re happy to offer cost-effective prices for businesses placing large orders.
The design and complexity of your order will also play a role when calculating its overall price. If you’re combining die cut printing with other types of special finishes, or if you’re opting for a design that requires the use of other complex printing techniques, you can expect to pay slightly more for a more vibrant and colourful product. If you are unsure on creating die-guides then our studio help you.
As die cut printing can be used with any number of printed products, the type of product you’re ordering will evidently play a role when it comes to calculating the final price of your project. For example, packaging boxes and wallets with a die-cut finish will cost more than invitations or greetings cards with a die cut finish.
Die cut printing can be used for a number of different printed products, such as printed wallets, boxes, leaflets, packaging, and more. You can even use die cutting to produce stickers, door hangers, folders, sleeves, product packaging and more.
So, why use die cut printing? After all, it can’t be more effective than using traditional printing finishes such as gloss or matte finishes, right? Wrong! Here are just a few reasons why die cut printing is worth the extra pennies:
The great thing about die cut printing is that it allows you to show off your business’ creativity or ingenuity. If you want to stand out from your competitors, die cut printing is a great way to do so.
You can also use die cut printing in a personal capacity to show off a personal achievement or event in a playful way. For example, you can use die cutting to create fun wedding invitations or birthday invitations, or even create a personalised greeting card for a loved one.
While die cutting offers an aesthetic element to your products, let’s also not forget that die cut printing can also improve a product’s functionality, whether you’re creating a box, a wallet, or a door hanger. Die cutting also offers flexiblity to printed products, and makes it easier for you to create unique designs in bulk.
