Cutting Formes


We are specialist diemakers of diecutting formes, from self adhesive labels and gallus dies to display and packaging cartons.

We manufacture precision cutting and creasing formes from your files, or produce a die-line to your requirements
Our highly skilled forme makers, have been trained and worked in the die-making industry for many years and are apprentice trained to PrintNZ Industry Standards.
You can therefore be assured that all the cutting and creasing formes we produce are to the highest possible standard.

In addition we can offer the option of rubbering the cutting forme and producing stripping units and patch sheets.

Our forme shop is a successful combination of traditional tooling and automated technology.
