Many people ask “What is die cutting?”

Diecutting is a manufacturing process used to generate large numbers of the same shape from a material such as wood, plastic or fabric. The die cut shapes are sometimes called “blanks,” because they are usually finished and decorated before being sold. The process is widely used on an assortment of materials all over the world, and many manufactured products contain several die cut components, often assembled together in a series of steps to create a finished product.
