Bonus Service: Die Cutting

Posted by ashley mcneill on

On Instagram I showed a little clip of a die cutting project and received a few questions about it.

Yes, I can die cut! On our letterpress, too. I don't get to do it often but do enjoy it. The set up on the press it a little different but Vera can handle it.

Plus, it's fun:

I have *lots* of shapes in the studio:
  • Circles
    • 5"
    • 4”
    • 3.5”
    • 3”
    • 2.75”
    • 2”
    • 1.5”
    • 1”
  • Arched Card (5"x7")
  • Tombstone shape (2.43"x2.56")
  • Tag/House shape (6.5"x3.5")
  • Apple with holes for ribbons? (4.25"x3.625")
  • Handled rectangle (5"x6.75")
  • Squares and rectangles
  • Shapes I still haven't figured out what they are
  • Angled slits for inserting gift cards
  • Door hanger styles, which I use for wine bottle gift tags
And if you want a custom shape for your project, we can do that, too! My steel die maker is in the Dallas area and ships crazy-fast. I joke that the die arrives at the studio before I even submit my order, but it's about a two-day turnaround. So fast.

I'll update this with new die shapes/sizes and photos so you can reference it for projects.
As always, email if you have any questions or projects to discuss.
Cheers!
