Enter your image width and height. We will automatically allow 5.0mm around your image for foiling dies and 10.0mm for embossing dies.
We offer a broad range of metal gauges. In the UK and USA 6.35mm is the most popular gauge whereas in Europe most dies are 7mm. It is important to check the gauge required before ordering.
Rigid counterforces are 0.8mm and Flexible counterforces are 0.125mm. If you don't require a counterforce click 'Not Required'.
When you want to upload your artwork just click the 'Use this File' button to browse for the right file on your PC or network, as if you are attaching a file to an email. We can use .pdf, .eps, .ai, .qxp, .qxd, .sit, .ps, .tif and .pict files up to 2.0mb. We are unable to use .jpg files. Bitmap files should be two colour black and white with no dithering or anti-aliasing. For advice please phone or email us.
If we receive your order and artwork by 12 noon we can usually dispatch your dies the same day.
