What is a die?
A die is a tool responsible for cutting the shape of the label out of the material. The material is shipped to us in large rolls. The ink, uv or laminate is added to the label material before it is die-cut. A die to the material is like a cookie cutter to dough. Therefore, we have developed a large die library over the past 20 years.
