First we will cut the cork in any shape, thickness, or size — to your exact specifications. To help you in the process, we will even send you different samples of die cut cork, so you can test the backing out on your coaster design. Sara Jo, founder and owner of Stella Davina explains:
"Randy at Frank Lowe sent different thicknesses of cork. We didn't know whether we wanted a quarter of an inch, an eighth of an inch or how thick we wanted the cork backing. So Frank Lowe made a bunch of squares in different thicknesses and materials, so we could try them on coasters and see which ones we liked the best."
Once we decide on the best material, we'll apply a special adhesive to the cork to simplify your overall manufacturing and process.

Our adhesive has simplified manufacturing processes — leading to reduction in labor costs as well as other efficiencies. By creating a type of peel-and-stick adhesive backed cork for coasters, you'll be able to quickly remove the cork backing and apply it to the coaster with ease. You don't have to take our word for it, Sara Jo of Stella Divina best explains this process:
"Another thing Frank Lowe helped me do is find the perfect adhesive. Then, they die cut the cork backing and laminate it with the adhesive. So when I get the backing, all I have to do is peel the sticker off and stick it to the tile. This has saved my business countless hours and allows me to quickly meet larger orders."
We can also provide your final cork in bulk pack for easy distribution or kiss cut on rolls for quicker and easier application in your manufacturing. Kiss cutting explains when the cork is fully cut — without cutting the throw-away paper liner or backing.
The process of kiss cutting got its name because the components are fully cut through, but the die gently "kisses" the backing paper without cutting through it. When kiss cutting is combined with our adhesive backed cork for coasters, it creates peel-and-stick components that make application as easy and effortless as possible.
