Die cutting[edit]

I left comments and questions about improving the Die cutting (web)article on its talk page; mainly adding context about who uses the terminology and the techniques discussed. I also hope that a die-cutting (arts and crafts) page is created and am looking for expert help on this. I have been working on the article for The Very Hungry Caterpillar - which features die-cut holes to show eaten-through fruit and other foods. Other books by Eric Carle, and other childrens picture books, use die-cutting in various ways. I was hoping to square bracket the word 'die cut' if I used it in the article, but found I couldn't, and am trying to remedy that thoroughly before I change the text. Also inspired by a friend who showed my her thin metal dies for her hobbyist die-cutting machine, I think that die-cutting in that hobby context is very significant. I would really like to create a good page. A google search brought up many many machines for hobbyist die cutting. I am struggling to find appropriate sources where this is discussed though. Equally book design was a cold lead. I added some mention of children's literature formats - pop-up, die-cut - myself. My husband and I are also interested fans of industrial heritage and processes even though we don't have occupational background in the area beyond school; I have sympathy with the aims of this project.

No offense, but you probably won't get any responses here, because I'm probably the only person that watches this category. You are better off copying your comment to WT:METALWORKING if you want to get an audience. Wizard191 (talk) 14:13, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
