DIE CUTTING

Die-cutting is a process used in many different industries to cut a thin flat material (in our case, paper) into a specific shape using a steel cutting die. It can be used to punch out a decorative shape or pattern to incorporate within a larger piece, or it can be used to create the main shape of an object by cutting the entire sheet of paper in an distinct/designed way. 

More simply put: for us it’s a way of making a hole in paper in a desired shape.

Calendar / Poster Tinning

Tinning, or Calendar Tinning, is a binding procedure that utilizes a thin metal strip which is crimped to the top of the work piece. Tinning is a functional and inexpensive method of binding to support and hang calendars, posters, and display signs. The most common use of this process is calendar tinning. We use our semi-automatic machines to do short or long runs that can tin a single sheet at the top, bottom, or both. We can also include a hanging hook.
