BHS Cutting Formes and Fast Finish have joined forces. We are BHS-FastFinish.

BHS Cutting Formes Ltd has been manufacturing advanced cutting dies for over 30 years for customers all over the Midlands and beyond, and has forged an excellent reputation for quick turnaround and high quality work.

Fast Finish Ltd is a print finisher and cutting forme manufacturer, also with over 30 years in the industry, and a long track-record of satisfied customers who return time and time again. Recently the company has expanded its offering to box making and foil blocking.

Now we have brought the two companies together under one roof in Northampton. More combined years of experience, better access to equipment, more skilled die-makers and print finishers working together, a more efficient operation and the same great customer service!

Our Core Services

Die/Tool Making

Our highly skilled toolmakers use their vast experience combined with the latest technology to produce superior quality cutting formes / dies.


We specialise in manufacturing cutting tools for the print, display and corrugated flatbed industry including wobblers, display units, creasing tools, folding carton dies, tent cards and special shaped dies.

We manufacture bespoke dies to each of our customer's requirements. Being a print finisher means that we have first-hand experience of how the dies are used.

Print Finishing

We offer print finishing services to print houses large and small throughout the region.

BHS-FastFinish understands that the finishing of your printed materials is just as important as the print itself, and we are able to call upon a vast amount of experience and knowledge in this area.

Our print finishing services include hand platen and cylinder cutting/creasing, foil blocking, kiss-cutting, guillotining and hand make-up.

We also offer box making and laser-cutting.
