Die cutting machines come in all shapes and sizes so before you head out to buy one for yourself, here are some important factors to consider to make sure you get the correct machine.
Size. Choose a die cutting machine that will allow you to comfortably use it on your workspace. Do you need a machine with a large cutting surface? Or do you want a small, portable cutting machine that you can take anywhere? Weigh in your options and make a decision from there.
Type. Depending on the type of projects you wanna work with, you can either choose between an electric and a manual machine. If you plan on creating large DIY projects with a variety of different materials, an electric machine is your best bet since it operates faster and will allow you to cut more pieces in a short time.
If you value portability and simplicity, a manual cutting machine will work just as well as an electric machine and since it doesn’t require any power to operate, you can use it anytime you want.
Cost. Heavy duty printing and cutting machines especially the electric ones will set you back around £300 and up because they come with more features and are more efficient at cutting. Manual cutting machines usually cost around £100 so consider your budget and buy the best equipment you can afford.
