Die Making 101 Seminar

19 May2016

Die cutting is an impressive way to give print pieces a unique and eye catching finishing cut or score, turning seemingly impossible jobs into gorgeous realities. You may know dielines are used in print files to dictate where the die will cut the piece, but do you know how they're made? How does a simple line in Illustrator become a die and ultimately the perfect shaped piece? Let us show you how to take a project through the entire process from concept and design to printing and finishing for a successful final piece. 

At SunDance's Open House in 2015, we held a seminar called Die Making 101 which showed the entire process of actual production pieces. Creative Director Susanna Toppa lead the first half of the seminar with a focus on the pre-production aspects of design: how to set up dielines, paper choice, prototyping, required layout and dieline exporting to get the piece into production. Finishing Expert, Dave Leyrer then demonstrated how the dielines are cut into a die board and how the die rules are bent to shape. He then moved on to show a live job on the die cutter and let attendees fold the final product.
