potw: die cut

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

i sometimes struggle to come up with a new thing for press of the week.

for a while, i've been stuck on colors and card types. i used to focus on techniques (edge painting, foil stamping, blind deboss) so i thought i'd bring that back today with something i haven't featured yet: die cutting.

see all those fancy shapes?

those are examples of this technique. it's usually done after printing is complete, and adds a nice little flourish, allowing you to go outside your basic square/rectangle format.

these were some of the nicest examples i saw, and i think they had a special touch to printed pieces.
