Our Preco cutting unit reads a dot for exacting cutting output. Cameras and sensors are used to line up and realign material as it comes off the roll and through the press, adjusting for any screen or material stretch. This press has the ability to through-cut and kiss-cut, as well as strips away excessive material, all in one step.

Digital lasers, routers, and i-cutters round out our finishing equipment, allowing flexibility to cut on a multitude of materials with minimal setup time.

Your finished parts can be finished in a variety of ways, such as through-cut individually, kiss-cut on a sheet, or left on a roll. Add a split back or a tab for easy removal of liner materials. Our goal is to make your label needs as easy and effiecient as possible to finish off your branding needs.

What's "splitting"?

Have you ever found yourself peeling the back off a decal after several agonizing minutes of trying to pry it apart with your thumbnail?

It's pretty annoying. That's why the paper on the back of our decals is split. The back where the decal is stuck to is actually in two pieces, so you can easily peel them off and stick the decal where ever your little heart desires.
