Die cutting & Slitting
Die- Cut and Kiss-Cut
Die cutting is the general process of using a die to shear webs of materials to the shape. On labels, this type of die cutting is known as kiss cutting. After the web is cut, the excess material (called matrix) is pulled away, leaving only your labels behind. Die cutting can be done on either flatbed or rotary presses. Rotary die cutting is often done inline with printing. The primary difference between rotary die cutting and flatbed die cutting is that the flatbed is not as fast and it is a second off-line operation but the tools are cheaper.

Label Unwind Direction (Label Roll Direction)
For Kiss-Cut sticker on rolls, it is important to choose the correct unwind direction especially if you will be applying labels with an applicator or machine. There are four directions the label can be oriented in:
① Label on OUTSIDE of roll, Right side of label OFF FIRST
② Label on OUTSIDE of roll, Left side of label OFF FIRST
③ Label on OUTSIDE of roll,Top of label OFF FIRST
④ Label on OUTSIDE of roll,Bottom of label OFF FIRST
Roll slitting is a shearing operation that cuts a large roll of printed labels or stickers into narrower rolls. After printing on a large roll of labelstock, the roll is then unwound and slit into narrower webs according to the roll size of labelling applicator or machine.
