A die is a tool used on a printing press to cut the raw label material as we’re converting it into label sheets. For special custom jobs, a one time die charge will be charged to the job. A die cost is a one time purchase only for the customer.
The cost of a die depends upon the:
- Label material (Polyester Labels require a more expensive rotary die)
- Number of die cuts per sheet (the more labels – the more expensive)
- Special cuts (for example round design cuts are more expensive)
- Special sheet sizes
