Internal Capabilities Give Command Over Every Part of the Printing Process.
On Site Superior Die Cutting Operations
A cutting die is necessary for the creation of custom packaging. It’s like a king size cookie cutter. The purpose of a cutting die is to cut out the shape and dimensions of the carton. At North Star, we have in-house resources to build and modify dies and forward them quickly into production which:
Improves the Overall Quality and Allows for Modification
One of the best die cutting operations in the US resides within North Star Printing. We utilize best-in-class die making equipment and our team of dedicated professionals build dies and all related components on site. North Star is one of the few manufacturing facilities in the US to offer internal capabilities to build steel rule dies, stripping boards and blankers. We also grind our own steel counter die plates. The advantage of building dies in-house, in addition to speed to print, is the superior quality and cost savings.
Our exclusive cutting process is fast, efficient, and less expensive for our customers and improves the quality of scores and set up times and easily surpasses most of the older systems that many printers still use today. When you need the best in class folding cartons it begins with the die quality and that is why we manufacture dies under our roof.
