I wanted to talk a little bit about our sister company, Custom Shape Pros. It is just such a fabulous tool that can enhance your business and save you time. It is an obvious fit if you are in stationery or creating a mascot for your school. Think of the possibilities if you are a designer selling your creations on Etsy, or cutting specific materials over and over for your business, creating packaging, labels or even customizing a logo. Custom dies are created with steel rule and can cut through a vast variety of materials literally opening up the doors to endless creativity.
Let's meet the team...
I recently had a chance to sit down and chat with the team and ask them a few questions and here is what they had to say.
Traci: What is your favorite part of working for Custom Shape Pros?
Amber: My favorite part of working in the Custom Shape Pros department is seeing all the amazing ideas that customers bring to us. I’ve been working in this department now for three years and I still am constantly surprised by all the possibilities that our dies can offer. I also really enjoy helping individuals turn their passion into a profitable business with the use of our steel rule dies and cutting machines. There have been many times where customers have told us about the hours they spent previously cutting out shapes by hand with scissors and how it saved their business (and hands!) when they found out how we could help.
Anne: My favorite part about working with Custom Shape Pros is the unpredictability. The day can change on a dime based on customer needs. I also feel at home with the camaraderie in our company.
Paige: My favorite part of working with Custom Shape Pros is the variety of dies we make and the group I work with.
Traci: What has been one of your favorite projects or experiences while you've been with Custom Shape Pros?
Amber: One of my favorite projects that I have worked on was creating a paper doll custom die for a national television commercial. Although it took about a year from when we initially created the die to actually seeing the commercial on television, it was a very fun and unique experience.
Anne: My favorite projects usually include a fast turn around time and a mathematical challenge. A panther logo for an East coast university sticks out as a recent favorite. The customer was fun to speak with and the fun designs easily make this project memorable for me.
Paige: The projects that stand out the most to me are Bona Rivera Tran's beautiful albums.
I also wanted to know what else Custom Shape Pros can offer besides custom dies. They replied with "Besides custom designed dies, the Custom shape Pros team can help individuals and businesses in a variety of ways. For example, if we create a custom Pinnovation die (a die with registration pins to help align pre-printed text) most people don’t know that we can also build a custom template for your die that works in your design program."
I hope you got to know a little bit more about custom dies. The team at Custom Shape Pros is here to help you achieve your goals with quality products, excellent customer service, competitive prices and fast turn around times. It's just that simple!
