The laser die-cutting allows to make parts with very complex shapes with cutting both inside and outside of an element. It is a possibility of cutting almost without limits, which stands out for its high level of precision, detail and quality, beyond the barriers imposed by the conventional die.
There are two types of laser dies, depending on the number of cuts:
The HD laser die-cutting allows up to 50 shapes to be die-cut inside a part. From 50 cuts, the Ultra HD laser die-cutting is used for very complex designs.
This finish elevates the presentation of any element thanks to its spectacular result.
In addition, it can be combined with other types of finishes to obtain a connotation associated with luxury, for example, using digital printing or together with digital varnish.
The final artwork is delivered in pdf format with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi and at actual size. The pdf must contain a page with the design, and another one with the cut and crease area of the box vectorized, differentiating them with two colors.
Remember to add the cutting guidelines and leave a perimeter bleed of at least 3 mm. In the case of creasing lines, it is also recommended, as far as possible, to leave a margin of 3mm. Avoid placing important design elements such as text or images in the cutting and creasing areas.
The laser die-cutting yellows the edges of the paper. Colored paper or printed backing attenuates very effectively this effect.
The laser die-cutting is a resource widely used in elements of the branding of a company such as business cards or packaging because it achieves a high impact on the presentation by capturing and loyalty of consumers or customers.
This system allows multiple applications for the world of packaging – cases, sleeves, girdles, etc. – and great versatility for highly creative designs applicable to pieces such as greetings, wedding invitations, event cards, calendars, covers, marketing brochures, restaurant menus or creative coasters, etc.
