Custom shaped bookmarks are a fun and inspiring way to get children reading, or perfect for authors, publishers, and writers to showcase unique limited-edition copies of their favorite books. Before you get started, you may want some bookmark design questions answered, so we’ve compiled 5 top tips for creating your bookmarks.

Custom Shaped Bookmarks That Stand Out From The Rest

When it comes to designing your bookmarks, we have an array of high-quality paper stocks, ranging from silk to gloss, recycled to uncoated. We guarantee we have a paper stock that’ll bring your custom shape bookmarks to life. Are you looking for something a little more premium? Opting for a thicker paper will add depth and richness to your bookmarks, giving them that luxurious premium feel. Before making your choice, you can order one of our sample packs. Seeing and feeling the different shades, textures, and finishes will make choosing the paper for your custom shaped bookmarks easier.

We also offer several stunning finishes for your custom shape bookmarks. Go double-sided, add a touch of shiny metallic foil, or even include a little drill hole, which is perfect for leveling up your custom shape bookmarks. If you decide to add a splash of metallic foil we’ll add a soft touch lamination as standard to preserve the longevity of your bookmark. But you can opt for a gloss or matt lamination if you prefer.

What Shape Can My Die Cut Bookmark Be?

We can cut your bookmarks to almost any shape you can think of. From simple circles to extravagant castles, we've seen it all here at Aura Print. Why not get in touch with our team who can provide advice on the shape you are looking to cut.

How Do I Supply My Artwork For Die Cut Bookmarks?

With our die cut bookmarks, we require both your artwork files and the shape you would be liking your bookmarks to be. The shape needs to be supplied as a 1pt stroke, separate from your printed artwork. There are a couple of things to keep in mind with your artwork. The first is to make sure that the cutline isn’t touching (or almost touching) anything important on your artwork. The second is to edit your artwork to have bleed.

Can I Print Both Sides Of My Die Cut Bookmark?

To print a double sided bookmark, all you need to do is select the double sided printing option above. Remember that the front shape of your bookmark is reversed for the back. If you're ever unsure about your artwork, get in touch with our team.

Which Paper Is Best For Die Cut Bookmarks?

We've chosen only the best paper stocks for our die cut bookmarks. Each of these papers have been trialled and tested to ensure that they withstand the die cutting process and produce stunning results. To see our paper types in person, why not order a sample pack?

Can I Print Multiple Different Bookmark Designs?

We’ve given you the choice to split your order across multiple different designs. Make sure that each of your different designs are the same shape, paper type, and size. If you would be liking different shapes, each bookmark would need to be ordered separately.

Do My Die Cut Bookmarks Need To Be Laminated?

In most circumstances, your die cut bookmarks don’t need to be laminated if you don’t want them to be. We’ve provided you with the option to choose between our three laminate options, as well as the option to have no laminate at all. With our thickest papers, our team may advise for you to have a laminate to help protect your bookmarks within the production process. In these cases, we will be in touch during the digital proofing stage to advise accordingly.
