FAQ: Can I Have My Order Die Cut?

Die cutting is the process of cutting a shape or adding a perforation to paper after it has been printed. We have twenty die-cutting machines in our production facilities, giving us the capability to customize your print job in any shape you like.

We create a die that is made of metal blades embedded in wood, and we cut one sheet at a time. Our standard die-cut products are file folders, door hangers, presentation folders, table tents, and round corner business cards, bookmarks and postcards. Note that if you want rounded corners on your order, the dies are already set up and ready for that, so you don’t need a custom order. Just choose the option when you’re selecting your paper and printing choices.

We also offer scoring and perforating based on our pre-existing dies. If you want a perforated tear-off coupon on a postcard, for example, we can perforate that on our die-cutting rigs.

If you want to get creative, though, we can still accommodate you with our custom die cutting. Just let us know what you want, either by calling us at 877-405-3949 or contact us online; we’ll put together a custom quote for your design. So if you want your business card to be in the shape of a paint-brush to advertise your painting business or if you want to hand out round flyers at your next event, we can produce it for you.

Once we’ve created the dies, you can re-order the product easily. We keep your design files for 12 months since it was ordered so just log in to your PrintPlace account and click the “Re-order” button next to the print job.
