What is die cutting in printing?

The term die refers to a thin blade with a sharp edge, which is used to cut sections out of materials such as paper, card or fabric. The F-Mark Automatic Die Cutter cuts these shapes to an accuracy of 0.2mm, allowing for very precise reproductions. As well as die cutting, the machine can also accurately score or perforate depending on your needs, and kiss cut as required.

What is the difference between die cutting and kiss cutting?

Die cutting and kiss cutting are techniques used to create shaped stickers and labels. Although similar, the results are slightly different.

Die cutting is used to cut through the sticker material AND its backing, resulting in a single shaped sticker with its liner also cut to the same shape.

Kiss cutting on the other hand, makes a lighter cut (or kiss) around the sticker’s edge, without damaging the backing. This means multiple stickers can be provided on a single sheet or on a roll.

What can I print digitally using the die cutter?

Our die cutting machine can create virtually any shape.
