Take your crafting to a whole new level with all the leading craft dies, including wafer-thin and steel-rule dies.

For paper crafters today, a die cutting system is a must-have tool for scrapbooking and card making. Dies are the accessories that create the beautiful shapes and designs.

Dies used for cutting are typically made of very tough thin metal which are specifically manufactured to withstand the pressure when passed through a Die Cutting Machine. Dies are placed with the cutting side against the desired material and sandwiched between plastic plates in a particular order. The order of these plates is specified by the manufacturer and may require additional plates, mats or shims depending on the type of die. Once the sandwich is passed through the machine and taken apart, you are left with a die-cut design.

There is a deluge of dies to buy in the craft marketplace. Each range boasts its own unique designs and features. The number of brands available is endless, with new introductions all the time.
