Die Cutting

It is very common for the facestock of the label to be die cut in sections or specific shapes. Die cutting the facestock is used more often than perforations on the labels. The die cut is accomplished by using a die which is basically made up of cutting blades that are formed into the desired shape. The die will cut through the facestock only and not through the liner.


Labels can be die cut into sections so that they can be separated
individually from the rest of the label.





Labels can be die cut into most any shape that you request.


A label can have one or more slits die cut on it or a tab may be slit at one end to make the labels easier to remove from the liner.

Manufacturers have standard dies in stock but if you need a special size or shape, a custom die can be ordered for an additional charge. This charge is generally a one time charge and not applied to exact reorders.
