Die Alignment Tutorial


Just a brief post today to draw your attention to the PDF tutorial I made showing how I align our stamps and dies. When we first began adding dies to our product line, I had the dies made with alignment holes on the outside. These holes are meant to help people line up stamped images with dies and are used by many companies. The problem with them is that they eliminate the ability to use the negative shape cut by the die, and there are some really fun applications that use the negative die cut.

I actually didn't like the fussing around with the alignment holes in the first place so I just began doing it the way I outline in the PDF.  It's quick and easy and results in a well-aligned die cut image.

I added it to the Techniques & Projects section of the website, as well as in the Dies section. While I was at it, I finally added the PDFs of the catalogs onto our new site like they were on the old site.
