DIE CUTTING

Custom die making and forme cutting is the cornerstone of our business. It is the perfect solution for large production runs of card, fluted card and plastic products. Great examples include packaging, display stands, business cards and advertising signage.

PLOTTER CUTTING

Our extensive CNC table cutting facilities are a great alternative to forme cutting and cover an even greater range of materials and production run sizes. The much smaller setup costs also make it the perfect option for small runs or sample creation.

CNC LASER AND ROUTER

Perfect for harder materials not suitable for cutting with our usual die or plotter cutting facilities. Both laser and traditional cnc have a variety of benefits and materials they are better suited to. We can help you find the best option for your product.

GUILLOTINE CUTTING

Not all cutting tasks are complex. For simple jobs such as cutting strips or trimming we have one of the largest commercial guillotines available. Capable of cutting paper, foil, plastic, wooden veneers and a range of other materials with a high level of accuracy and fantastic finish.

PRINT MOUNTING

Once your design has been printed on to a softer medium such as paper or light card it will often need to be mounted to a thicker sub straight for use in store displays and shelving. Our print mounting service allows for the rapid application of glue to bind a wide range of materials such as fluted corrugated cardboard, screen board or box board and back to back.

AUTOMATED TAPING

Put the finishing touches on your product with our automated taping systems. Capable of applying double sided paper tape to a variety of materials in multiple strips simultaneously. Also capable of alternating stop start patterns of tape. Perfect for applying struts or joining parts of more complex products.

SEE YOUR PRODUCT BEFORE PRODUCTION

Test out your product before full production with our sample making services. We can prepare a sample of your product on blank or printed stock so you can see it first hand.

This can also be useful in the development stages as samples are great for rapid prototyping iterations or testing various alternative designs or materials.

If your product will have stocked shelves, hang from a wire or have other unique requirements it is also a fantastic way to make sure they are sturdy enough or if they’ll need extra reinforcements.
