Die Cutting

In house die making capabilities and combined die cutting experience of over 150 years

From pocket folders and business cards to packaging and decals, Superior Packaging & Finishing has the die cutting expertise and equipment to make your project a success.

Our die cutting equipment (Bobst, Kluge, Heidelberg) uses sharp steel rules (knives) in a die with a wood base to cut specified designs or shapes out of the stock. We can also crease and score in the same process. Our multiple types of die cutting equipment allow us to complete a variety of jobs. Die cutting is often performed in conjunction with additional finishing operations such as binding or folding to create catalogs, books, manuals, and other printed media.
