Gemini Digital Die Cutter — Cut Sheet Labels Printed from Any Inkjet or Laser Printer
The Gemini digital die cutter machine is an innovative die cutter offered by DPR. Designed specifically for cutting sheet labels, the Gemini digital die cutter is fast, smart, and effective.
The Gemini digital die cutter for sheet labels has everything you need to digitally cut your printed labels on sheet label stock. A pneumatic device gently picks up your label sheets, moving each sheet from the feeding tray into the cutting plotter. From there, the Gemini die cutter’s camera and iMark software automatically read the black marks, allowing for perfect alignment and precision cutting. The plotter moves the cutting blade across the width of the label sheet as the sheet is fed through the unit and into the finished label sheets tray.
Benefits of Using the Gemini Digital Die Cutter to Cut Sheet Labels
Digitally die cutting your own labels with the Gemini digital die cutter for sheet labels is easy, convenient, and flexible. The DPR Gemini die cutter is a desktop unit that works with label sheets printed from virtually any sheet printer. It works with both Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw files.
The Gemini die cutter can cut through various media, including pressure sensitive labels, decals, tags, and stickers in the size of your choice and shape of your own design. This means your designs no longer need to conform to the limited options available in pre-die cut label sheets.
In addition to more creative control over your label designs when using label sheets, the Gemini digital die cutter could lead to lower per label costs since you’ll be using lower-priced blank sheets rather than pre-die cut sheets.
The Gemini die cutter for label sheets is extremely versatile, too. Not only can you cut your own labels, this die cutter can also cut through heavy card stock. You could use it to print labels as well as other components of your packaging.

Recommended Sheet Label Printer: UniNet iColor 600 and UniNet iColor 500
The Gemini die cutter works with virtually any inkjet or laser sheet printer. DuraFast Label Company highly recommends the UniNet iColor 600 (tabloid) or iColor 500 (standard page) for printing sheet labels and then digitally die cutting them with the Gemini die cutter. This combination is hard to beat since these printers ship with fluorescent white toner (optional fluorescent color toners are also available) for amazing printing for both labels and apparel products like t-shirts and more! The iColor 600 and iColor 500 label printers include RIP software that allows you to underlay white on clear or black labels and on transfer sheets for t-shirts so that you can get more vibrant colors and better print quality.
Both the UniNet iColor 600 and iColor 500 printers are LED transfer printers with white and fluorescent toner options. With their low temperature fusing technology, the UniNet iColor 600 and iColor 500 accept a wide range of label media (we have a large section). Use the iColor 600 or iColor 500 to print white text and graphics on clear labels, gold and silver foil labels, matte paper labels, high gloss paper labels, or GHS BS5609 chemical labels.
By pairing the UniNet iColor 600 or iColor 500 with the Gemini digital die cutter, you can design, print, and cut your own custom labels on sheet label stock.
