There are various ways to die cut a sheet. At LPI, we offer 3 types. The best fit for your order depends on envelope size, graphics and budget.
By using a “metal cookie cutter” looking die, we cut several hundred sheets simultaneously with the top sheet being a die dot sheet. The die dot sheet is used to verify position of the die. Please note that die dot sheets are not converted.
Like the high die, it cuts several hundred sheets simultaneously. This die is used when die cutting custom sized envelopes. This provides the ability to make your open-end or booklet envelope almost any size with any size flap. All corners of the envelope will be square.
This is the most precise of the three. It cuts each sheet individually. A steel rule die is made from your supplied die line. This manner of die cutting reduces the bleed that wraps around envelope. Steel rule die cutting is done to minimize bounce.
