Die Making

Fast Finish regularly produces cutting formes for platens, Rollerpress, Maramatsu, Cuir, T-Series, Heidelberg and cylinder machines.


We supply cutting formes for print finishing, flat bed corrugated and folding carton industries, foam converters, case inserts and gasket manufacturing industries.

We produce gasket tools for the automotive industry, soundproofing gaskets, fuel cell gaskets, case insert tools and foam box insert tools.


We produce bespoke male/female blanking and stripping units (supplied from customer specifications) for Bobst and Eterna die-cutter machines, Heidelberg Promatrix machines and manual stripping units.

We use Impact CAD Design software and we can accept design work in the following formats: CF2, DXF, AI, BF, EPS and PDF.

With the cutting edge equipment that we have invested in we are able to make precision cutting formes more efficiently than ever before. Combining the latest technology on the market with over 120 years of diemaking experience. 

We hold most punch sizes in stock alongside a vast selection of cutting, creasing, perforating, wave and deckle edge rules. We work in the following: 2pt, 3pt, 4pt and High Rule.


Box Making

We excel at small run, bespoke box making. With our Autobox and Proglue glueing machine we are able to make small runs (minimum order 50 boxes) of 0201 and 0203 (FEFCO) box styles. 

We hold both 150 KT B flute and double wall EB flute in stock allowing us a fast turnaround time on orders. We have the ability to machine glue (water based, non toxic glue) or hand glue where necessary.

With our diemaking capabilities we are also able to produce cutting dies for more complicated box styles and we can also die-cut them (subject to size) at our Northampton premises. 

We are happy to give a price to create dies and die-cut small sample runs  - please email or call to discuss your requirements.

Foil Blocking

Foil blocking is a great way to add a luxury touch to your print work - it elevates the good into really special! 

Foil blocking is the application of pigment or metallic foil to paper where a heated die is stamped onto the foil leaving the image on the paper.


We hold most standard foil colours in stock and are happy to source other styles and colours if required. We will be happy to supply the die needed for the job and our maximum size for foil blocking area is SRA3.


We specialise in foil blocking runs up to 3,000 sheets but are happy to discuss larger runs - please feel free to give us a call
