Choosing between solid and flexible dies can be confusing. Both dies are cylindrical, but they operate in different ways. A flexible die is constructed of thin sheet materials that are folded around magnetic cylinders. A solid die is a steel version, and it is commonly used for long-run applications.

How does one choose between the two?

Most materials can be processed using flexible dies (paper, film, and pressure sensitive labels), but that does not mean that flex die can always be used.
