Are you ready to upgrade to the Tecre High Volume Die Cutting Press? Here are some signs that this cutter may be the right for you:
- You are interested in the electric button maker machine and are looking for something with the capacity to cut at the same volume.
- Your graphic punch which cuts one at a time just isn’t “cutting it” anymore.
- You would like to cut through something other than paper. (Yes, this die press works fabulously on other materials such as fabric, cardstock, cork, cardboard, etc.)
- You are interested in the closed corner effect on the rectangle and square buttons. (See below):
The following video not only demonstrates this press, but shows you the proper way to set up to maximize the pressure and thus cutting capacity.
With capability to slice through up to 30 paper sheets at one time accurately, you may have to ask yourself, is it time for you to cut down on your graphic setup time?

Does the die cutting press cut the paper more precise than the graphic punch ? I am looking at the 2×3 rectangle button machine . I want the closed corner so why must I have this die press to do it. Can it be cut by hand to achieve the same results?
Thank you for your inquiry. The Die Cutting Press cuts with the same precision as the graphic punch. The reason the Die Cutting Press can achieve that desired closed corner effect on square and rectangle buttons is because there is a notch in all four corners of the cutting die that works with the press. The other thing the Die Cutting Press offers over the graphic punch is higher efficiency. While the punch will only cut one at a time, the cutting press will cut several sheets at one time.
Cutting graphics by hand for rectangle and square graphics would prove to be far too cumbersome. Not only would you have to allow for corner radiuses but as mentioned above, there must be a small notch in all four corners of the graphic to achieve the closed option effect. It would be extremely difficult to achieve proper placement of this notch if you were to attempt to cut by hand. If you are looking to produce rectangle or square buttons with the closed corners, the Die Cutting Press really is the most efficient, effective, and durable cutter to meet your needs. Let us know if you have any other questions! Thank you!
Do you offer any tips on cutting sheets more evenly? I know the paper cutter cuts up to 30 sheets but the paper moves (even when stapling them) so the artwork comes out uncentered (not good when clients ask for text on the rim for example.). I’ve tried using less sheets of paper but I’m down to only 3 pages if I don’t want the artwork to come out uneven. It almost defeats the purpose of the cutter! Should I used an electronic stapler instead? Thank you.
First and foremost, registration when printing is extremely important. Once that alignment has been achieved, you can go ahead and fasten the corners of your sheets. We have seen many creative ways to do this but the most practical may be stapling the corners. Be sure to fasten all four corners of your sheets to prevent any sliding. Taking these steps should prevent the movement of the paper. Please feel free to call us if you have any further questions!

Hello, will this work for vinyl or leather?
Yes! It will absolutely work with those materials. If you ever want to test a material before purchasing, just give our office a call! We are happy to receive your sample material, test it out with the die cutting press, and return the samples to you prior to your purchase of the cutter. Thank you!
How can you staple 30 pages on all 4 corners? Most staplers wont staple that many pages
Thank you for your inquiry! It’s true that if you are working with a standard stapler to staple your corners, it might not go through 30 sheets. That is what the machine and the cutting dies are capable of. When we make samples here in the office, we like to staple 12 sheets together. It works with a stapler and also we find that we can keep the alignment best when we don’t have too many. We have seen many creative ideas when it comes to fastening the sheets together but if working with an office stapler, trying sticking to 12 sheets! Thank you!
