Die Cutting

 

APPLICATIONS

Die cutting is the fastest, most economical, and cleanest way to cut large quantities from materials such as leather, rubber, felt, fabric, paper, cardboard, and thin wood and plastic. Please see our MATERIALS GUIDE for more information on what we can provide for your job.

The smallest shape we can die cut is about 1”x1”, and the largest is about 60”x20”. We can die cut material up to a few inches thick. While we have no strict minimum order, die cutting is best for runs of at least 200 pieces.

PRICING

Custom cutting dies usually cost $50 to $500, depending on size and complexity, and take about a week to make. After producing the die, cutting is about 25 cents to $1 per piece, depending on material, size, and quantity. 

To receive a die cutting quote, first send us a drawing of the shape you would like cut (with dimensions), as well as the material and quantity that you wish to cut. See our FILE PREPARATION GUIDE to find out what kind of CAD drawing we need to begin a project.
