Professional die-cut template generation

Get an accurate vector file ready for production

The creation of an high-quality packaging starts with the generation of the hundredth-of-a-millimetre-accurate die-cut template. This is the first crucial step in the process of shaping a unique, custom packaging. Simplify the design process! Choose the box model, customise the dimensions within a 1200x1700mm sheet, specify the desired material thickness (0.2 to 1.8mm). The die-cut template will be generated automatically by Packly, without the need for any additional software. Die layouts larger than 700x1000mm or with custom thicknesses cannot be printed for now. We guarantee accuracy to the nearest hundredth of a millimetre, so that perfect results are always achieved.

High-precision die cut box template

A well-crafted die-cut template plays a crucial role in the design and production of quality packaging. Having an accurate and detailed technical drawing is the key to ensuring that every cut, fold and perforation in the material is executed with the utmost precision. The importance of an accurate die-cut template is evident in the end results: packaging must not only look aesthetically pleasing, but above all it must function flawlessly. A die-cut template generated by Packly is well defined and avoids irregular or inaccurate cuts, distorted shapes and misplaced folds, thus eliminating the possibility of defective or unprofessional products. Furthermore, the resulting die-cut template contributes to the reduction of design time as designers can work on a final technical drawing, optimising production efficiency and reducing costs.

The die cut template generated by Packly stands out for its precision and clarity, thanks to the strategic use of distinct colours. Cut lines are represented in blue and indicated as Cut, allowing immediate recognition of where the material will be cut to achieve the desired shape. Folding lines are defined as Crease and in red, facilitating the visualisation of the exact points where the folds will occur, which are essential to give the packaging its three-dimensional structure. Dotted lines, when present, provide additional details and essential indications where perforated cuts are needed. In addition, the generated file also contains an Outside bleed trace in green, so-called abundance, indicating the area to be reached by the graphic elements, so as to avoid the appearance of unsightly white threads on the cutting edges. Packly, with its attention to detail and efficiency, adopts a colour coding practice that makes it easy for designers, printers and production staff to understand the die-cut template. This methodology minimises the risk of errors and helps ensure that every aspect of the finished product meets desired specifications and delivers high quality results.
