Special shapes of your choice, custom die-cutting & custom sized cards
How Die Cutting Works?
Custom die cut business cards are produced using a sharp steel cutting blade called a "die" that's formed into a shape similar to a cookie cutter. Die cutting can be used either to punch out a decorative shape or pattern within a piece or to create an interesting outer shape for your business card design. Die cuts enable you to create fancy shapes from curvy edges to sharp points, as well as contours of recognizable items such as cars, animals, buildings or flowers - the ideas are endless!
Die cutting is also the ticket for creating custom business cards with large rounded corners, holes, pop-ups, slits or other functional or eye-catching details, or other popular products such as door hangers, greeting cards and postcards.
