Die cutting allows you to produce both basic and intricate shapes for your cards, scrapbooks and other crafting projects. Whilst dies come in various sizes and thicknesses they all operate in the same way by being placed in a sandwich of plates (in a specified order) and passed through a die cutting machine. Depending upon your chosen die it may be necessary to use an additional plate or shim to achieve the desired end result. Dies are strong thin pieces of metal used to coping with the “squeezing pressure” produced by these cutting machines to ensure a clean cut of your design.
All die cutting machines come with a manual to show you the manufacturers recommended sequence of plates, etc. for a perfect finish every time.
