Stop & Stare: Our Hand Assembled Die Cut Boxes

Stop & Stare: Our Hand Assembled Die Cut Boxes The job I’m featuring this week is a die cutting job that required foil stamping and some hand assembly. Our handwork team formed the custom closure flaps by applying double sided tape and magnets (shown in image below) and then folding. Many custom die cutting jobs […]

One Size Doesn’t Fit All … You Need Fully Custom Rigid Boxes
