Die Cutting

Designed by Merike Van Zanten of Double Dutch Design, die cut on one of our Heidelberg Windmills. The learning curve (pun intended) with this die was in getting the widths of the lines to meet the strictures of the die making process. Once that was figured out with the help of our very patient die maker, it was a simple process of press set up to cut 100 + sheets. Punching out all the shapes was not as easy, but our friend Merike was up to the task. Below is a shot of the back of the steel cutting die, to give an idea how well made it is.
