Print and Cut

Print and cut machines have technology in the Wide Format Printing industry that allows you to print a design, then immediately die cut the shape out.

Originally designed for machines like the Roland PC50/60/600, it has been further developed to work on wider and faster machines like the Roland SC540ex.

Other manufacturers have developed printers and cutters that are independent machines, but work in the same process. Mimaki are one such manufacturer.

How does it work?

To achieve print and cut, the software prints a 'mark' on each corner of the job as a reference point, then when it comes time to cut, a sensor sees the 'mark' and with the software, knows the exact area it needs to cut.

This allows you to print, laminate, then die cut the job.


It is not recommended to print then immediately cut unless the print is thoroughly dry, or you have a border of non printed area or white space. This is especially important if the cut will go through or on the edge of the print area. To cut a fesh print, it is adviseable to have a gap between the cut line and the print. Otherwise, the cut line will curl during the drying process.
