    Default custom Die-cut packaging Help Puhlease

    OK, I'm trying to source custom Die-cut packages for a few projects
    here is a rough mock-up..
    black shows die-cutting, which is fairly intricate..

    The custom die is the issue.. anybody have a suggestion for getting dies cut? (I've sourced one printer in Calgary who can do it but I'm looking for options)...

    Try Arkwell in Vancouver, they do the die and the cut. I've used them for years, always do an excellent job. Bob or Howie.
    www.arkwell.com or 604-879-7090

    there should be a few trade diecutters in Calgary...yellow pages!
