Reinvent Your Promotional Materials with Custom Die Cutting

Custom Die Cutting

Creating eye-catching marketing materials is essential in attracting and keeping clients. One way of doing this is by investing in fully custom die cut presentation folders. Mass-produced folders sold online suit some needs, but custom die cut folders offer several advantages. This week’s email is about custom designed die cut folders, which provide durable and convenient features.

Custom die cut folders are highly functional as they can be designed with extra features like:

  • Die cut slits for brochures and pockets for unique contents, like product samples, promotional gifts, etc.
  • Windowed Cover, which provides the user with a glimpse of what’s inside.
  • While standard pockets can conceal the bottom of documents, a pocket with a strategically Die Cut Shape can reveal and highlight a logo or important information.

When you can’t find what you’re looking for online, please give us a call for fully custom produced presentation folders.

Trade Die Cutting for Book Covers!

Trade Die Cutting

Trade die cutting isn’t just for tags, packaging, folders, stickers, etc. It also makes a great addition to books – for soft cover books, exposed chipboard covers and interior pages!

Die Cutting a book cover turns a simple piece into a work of art. A windowed book cover allows the reader to see inside a section of the cover. We can cut a decorative shape relevant to the book’s topic or product being promoted – the choice is yours.

Trade Die Cutting

The book I’m featuring this week has a die cut windowed cover that is also case wrapped! First, the chipboard cover material has a window die cut. Then, the cover was mounted to the fabric, with special care taken to wrap the inside of each of the window sides.

The image above shows how the inside cover liner hides the fabric edges that have been folded over the die cut window edges.

As I mention in this video, we love multiple operation projects. The piece featured was made in six stages– done all in-house! The die cutting portion of this Document Box Folder project is pretty standard, followed by full-surface gluing of the panel.

Choosing the right magnet for this capacity folder, however, was not overly simple because magnets come in a range of sizes and strengths. If the magnet pull is too soft, the flap will open. If the magnet pull is too strong, the flap will bend when the user tries to open the folder. We have a full range of magnets in different pull strengths, which makes prototype testing easy for our customers.

Die Cut Sheets

The die cut sheets are formed into a high-capacity wallet folder on our box gluing machines and then the flap is folded. Our machines can form the box pockets automatically up to 1 inch thick.

Brochure Holders Produced Automatically

Brochure Holders Produced Automatically

 

The die cut Brochure Holder I’m featuring is functional, durable and extremely easy to use. Customers can successfully promote their products with these Brochure Holders. Brochures and pamphlets are held securely in the tray.

This design is particularly cost effective because it is a single die cut piece and no hand-labour was required to prepare it in production. The entire piece was produced automatically!

Shipped flat, this particular Brochure Holder design is easy for the end user to assemble.

As shown above, the stand is first formed by inserting the tabs into the die cut openings.

Die Cut Hang Holes

As a premier full-service bindery, we offer customers in-house die cutting for retail packaging. We produce a range of hang holes as per client instructions. As you can see in this week’s video, there is a huge range of hang hole styles and sizes.

Die Cut Hang Holes

For a product to fit retail display hooks and hang properly, the hang hole style, size and placement have to be precise. Take a look at the images below to get an idea of how important die cut hang holes are to the retail packaging design process.

Die Cut Hang Holes

Die Cut Hang Holes

Die cut hang holes can have various diameters, from 1/16” up to 1/2”

Die Cut Hang Holes

Some kinds of retail products require offset hang holes to help the product hang evenly.

Die Cut Hang Holes

A Butterfly Hole is mostly used to display small, light retail products. This kind of hang hole is versatile because it fits both single-prong display hooks and Euro-style loop hooks.

Some merchandise may require triple product hanger holes.

Die Cut Hang Holes

This double offset butterfly hang hole is very unusual, we can die cut any required holes for customers.

Die Cut Hang Holes

The open hang hole style makes it easier to lift merchandise off hooks.

This type of die cut hang hole is unique and serves two functions. The hole is both a hang hole and a handle!

Since there is such a huge range of sizes and styles of hang holes, be specific with your client about the size and weight of merchandise and the style of retail hook.

If you need die cutting for a retail packaging or merchandise job, please give us a call!

Most binderies can do 6pg foldout covers on Saddle Stitched books, but only a few (like us!) can also add foldouts from the top and/or bottom and/or face.

These operations require die-cutting, oftentimes some very tricky folding and then Saddle Stitching. We can do all these processes in-house, using one of our 4 – 40” Bobst/Brausse die cutters, box gluers, buckle/plow folders and Mueller saddle stitchers.

PMC High Die Shaped Books

PMC High Die Shaped Books

This week, the focus is on books that are PMC / High Die Shaped into any shape—baby bottle, animal, fruit, etc. All the books shown in the video started out as typical perfect bound books. The Wire-O books shown above were bound, had the spine cut off and were Wire-O punched. Then, the books were PMC / High Die Shaped and then the wire was applied.

PMC High Die Shaped Books

The ice cream book above started as a simple perfect bound book, which was shaped by our PMC machine.

The rivet book shown above also started as a perfect bound book. The spine was cut off, had a hole drilled, went into a PMC / High Die Shaping machine and then, finally, had the rivet inserted.

The board books below were bound in the normal way, then simple PMC /high die shaped as pictured.
