No matter what printing project you have to create, the technique known as die cutting can be immensely helpful. One question remains: what can die cutting do for you?
How It’s Used
A die is a thin but extremely sharp blade made of steel. It is fashioned into different shapes depending on what you need the die cutting process for; the sharpness of the cutting blade allows it to slice into various materials you would expect to encounter during the printing sequence that transforms a manuscript into a commercially-ready book. Whether it is paper for a bundle of pages or stock for cards and labels, the die cutter can cut all of it.
Improving Promotional Products
Die cutting is also used for promotional products – not only for a specific book, but for the publishing company that helps to produce it, or for the related merchandise that helps market the book or the film that is based on that book.
Many different businesses can also make use of die cutting, so if you own a small business, die cutting can make a tremendous difference – especially if you are a freelance writer attempting to market yourself in the industry. Catalogs, portfolios, magnets, and even business cards all promotional products that die cutting can be used to help create and shape into something memorable.
Enhancing Functional Uses
Die cutting can also enhance the functionality of what you are working on; for instance, envelopes need to have a small window that offers a glimpse at what is inside – and this window is created through the use of die cutting. However, you can also use die cutting to help make your standard books more eye-catching. After all, not only can it help you arrange cover art, but interior artwork as well. There are many different reasons why you would need your project to be die-cut, and the possibilities offered to you by this technique are almost limitless.
