We at Preston Board aren’t one for cutting corners. Unless it entails the rounding of corners. Preston Board offers a bespoke die cutting and guillotining service. Whether you wish to have a dozen boxes cutting, or a gross of boxes cutting, we shall fulfil your needs.

Our state-of-the-art paper and cardboard cutting machinery makes light work of the toughest assignments. Whether die cutting or guillotining, we can make the cut. We can deal with cardboard materials with thicknesses from 150 microns to 5000 microns. Whether your packaging is designed for small electronic devices or the largest fridge freezers, we can help you with your order.

Why die cutting?

For stationery it could be used as part of a book cover, possibly for decorative purposes. With cardboard boxes, for example, ventilation holes or carrying handles. This technique has been used in LP covers. Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark’s self titled debut album from 1980 (with the mesh grid) is a classic example.

Cutting corners

With Preston Board, creating rounded corners is our only concession to cutting corners. Everything else is about precision. In this case, it is for box flaps and rounded edges. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, the former is more user friendly for the top flap of your box. Plus it doesn’t give you a paper cut when you are opening a box.
