The article profiles Laseredge Die-Free Converting that shows a large format sheet with intricacies possible in die-free laser converting. Its owner, Joel Lombart is proud of the company's ability to meet the demands of its customers. Lombard was challenged to bid on a holiday-themed project and won it through the laser technology. It has been stressed that though meeting the deadline was the goal, the lessons learned and relationships built are considered to be the company's greatest success.
