The Die Cutting System
What is die-cutting?
Die-cutting is like using a pastry cutter. A hand-operated,
die-cutting machine uses steel rule die shapes to cut through
a wide range of materials quickly and easily.
What makes die-cutting better than scissors?
The use of scissors takes time and patience. However,
die-cutting transforms the tedious tasks of cutting numerous
letters and shapes into a fast, fun and easy endeavour
replicating the same perfect shape over and over again.
What kind of material can I cut out?
Sizzix brand machines can die-cut, emboss and texturize
many materials, including cardstock, paper, construction
paper, fabric, faux fur, felt, foil, heat and shrink plastic,
leather, paper wood, poly foam, self-adhesive rubber (for
making rubber stamps), sheet magnet, sponge, static cling
vinyl and thin craft metal.
