In trhe case you want long-lasting dies, you should observe the following requirements:

Adjustment, pressure

Careful adjustment of steel rule dies: cutting should be started only with minimal pressure.


Storage to avoid damages: steel rule dies should be stored vertically, leaving few centimetres between each die in order to protect rules.

Avoiding deformation

With the following parameters wood deformation, distortion or buckling could be avoided:

  • Humidity: 45% – 60%
  • Temperature: 18 oC – 23oC

Avoid direct sunlight and excessive heat.
