Cutting dies come both in Flat and Rotary. Flat dies are needed if the parts are very small or the

expensive at first. For budgeting purposes $1.75 for Flat and $2.50 for Rotary per inch of rule (the rule cuts
or creases the carton) including the perimeter.
Print Plates come in all sizes depending on the art to be presented. A separate plate is required for each
color. Print plate cost vary by complexity, what we start with as art, their size and the number of colors. For
budgeting purposes $2.25 per square inch is usually safe.
