    Hello,

    Does anyone have a source for getting die’s made for letterpress? Also, has anyone made their own circle die with cutting rule to die-cut coasters?

    Thank you!

    Hi Melissa, recently ordered a 6″ circle die from Midwest Dies out of Wisconsin. They have an online quote generator, quick work-around time, and were easy to work with. 

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Melissa, I order my custom die plates through Key Dies in PA. (http://keydies.com/industry_letterpress.htm) They are really great to work with and willing to work with a beginner and walk you through the process of how to order, when it comes to all the technical specifications. They also have a fast turn-around time for some fairly complex dies. Prices seem reasonable and comparable to others I’ve seen. Highly recommended. Have fun! Diecutting is a blast and the best part is it requires no ink cleanup!! 🙂

    Thanks for the great advice! I really appreciate it.

    I’m testing a homemade circle die tonight. Hopefully it works!

    The cheapest, quickest, and kindest company I’ve found for dies is A&A in Atlanta! Good luck.
