Die Cutting - Platen

Die Cutting – Platen

The process of cutting paper in a shape or design using a wooden die or block in which are positioned steel rules in the shape of the desired pattern. A die is a specialised tool used in manufacturing to cut or shape a material fitted into a press.

Die cutting is the mass fabrication of cut-out shapes by shearing a stock material such as paper using tooling called a die. It has sharp edges used to pierce the material; it contains the custom two-dimensional shape of the finished part. The die cutting process works in the same principle as the cookie cutter where the dough is cut into smaller sizes.

Top Cut / Kiss Cut

Top Cut or Kiss Cut is where the die cuts the top layer, but not the backing layer, of self-adhesive paper usually used for stickers. Top Cut/Kiss cut stickers have a square or rectangle paper backing for peeling instead of the custom shape of the sticker. This is the only difference between the two.
