Die cutting can be used for many things. At OlymPak, our most frequent requests are for box cutting, stickers, stand-up cards, and other promotional items. We take your design and turn it into a unique cutout shape that gives your product visual appeal that gets noticed on the shelf, rack, or anywhere it is displayed. No die cut project is too large or too small!
What Is a Die?
Think of a die cutter as a cookie cutter. The shape of the die is the exact shape that gets cut into the substrate. Simply put, it is a metal tool with a raised sharp edge for cutting. Dies come in a few different forms, including thin metal dies and steel-rule dies. Steel rule dies are typically more durable and can cut thicker materials.
At OlymPak we use many different types of dies that come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and styles. Each die is carefully selected or custom designed to meet individual project needs.
