Streamline your print-to-cut workflow

Manage cutting operations with Caldera 

Digital cutting is a process in which computer-controlled cutting devices are used to precisely cut printed materials, such as paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric, or other substrates. It is a key component of the digital printing workflow, enabling the production of intricately shaped or custom-cut designs. 

Digital cutting comes with several advantages— greater design flexibility, faster setup times, reduced production costs, and the ability to create custom designs.

Caldera is the best program in the market right now. It is extremely fast, stable, completely user-friendly and has a great interface. I am often approached by manufacturers to use other workflows and I choose Caldera every time.
