Skate or Die (cut)!
Posted on November 23rd, 2011 // Business cards, Jobs, Letterpress, News, Printing

Speaking of…remember Poseur Pete? Wow…

Sorry for the Skate or Die tangent. However, today we’d like to talk about a service we offer that is pretty radical: Die-cutting. Die-cutting can be a great way to create a custom card shape, hang tag, invite, etc. There are some limitations to keep in mind. Intricate designs can become too fragile for a die and we’d recommend the Leslie Harris card (shown in the gallery below) as an example of a card that is on the high end of the scale as far as intricacy goes.

So, if you have an idea for a custom card, don’t let its shape hinder your creativity. Maybe Rodney Recloose would want a mohawk-shaped card? Or maybe skate deck shaped?
