Die Cutting, Surface Flaps and Multi-Layer Added Flaps

Die Cutting

Die cutting your book adds an extra special custom look to your project. Die cut your dust jacket to show the hard cover underneath, cut a window through the whole book, cut an area to be hidden by a surface flap. Want your book die cut in the shape of a Ninja? We can do that! (We’d love to do that.) Your imagination is the limit on this flexible added feature.

Manufacturing Limitations

  1. We can apply die cuts to all our standard binding types.
  2. The minimum paperweight we recommend when applying a die cut is 105lb coated stock or 85lb uncoated stock.
  3. Die cut shapes will need to be approved by our vendor. We recommend sending us your die cut shape at your requested size before placing an order to make sure it is something we can replicate.
  4. Multiple shapes on one sheet are possible! Just be sure to check with your Account Manager first to see if we are able to replicate the artwork.
