Complex shapes, stars, circles, and many different patterns are possible with a steel rule die. Using steel rule dies, we can die cut foam, sheet plastic, corrugated plastic, chipboard, fabric, rubber, felt, cork, thin metals, wood, acrylic, composites, fiberglass, magnets, sponge, custom die cuts or any other flat material normally found in the industry.
