Die Cutting... and Beyond


One of the advantages to die cutting is its ability to fit neatly in a workflow with other post press production services. At Seidl's Bindery, we can perform high-speed, high-quality die cutting along with folding, remoist and fugitive gluing, attaching, mechanical binding and more to create eye-catching products.
Auto-stripping capabilities
While die cutting can be used to create virtually any shape, many die cuts created within the perimeter of a piece can be slow to produce. Objects such as windows or other shapes must be stripped out once the die cut is performed.
At Seidl's Bindery, our state-of-the-art die press can automatically strip a die cut area as small as 3/16" in diameter. That allows us to bypass subsequent production steps, resulting in much faster turnaround times and better die cutting accuracy.
High-Die Cutting
Small-format products such as trading cards, product hang tags and pocket schedules can be difficult to die cut on a standard die press. Our high-die capabilities allow us to perform a perimeter die cut on such small pieces at very high speeds. If your high-die cut products will then be attached to a carrier such as a direct mail piece, we can automatically attach the piece using fugitive glue.
The Seidl Advantage
Let us help you put our extensive die cutting capabilities to work for you. In addition to our wide range of stock dies, our CAD/CAM computer plotting system allows us to create accurate dies on demand. With a full complement of ancillary services such as folding, gluing, mechanical and PUR adhesive binding, Seidl's Bindery is positioned to be your single-source post press services provider.
