The Extended Multipurpose Platform is here!
The new extended multipurpose platform...the only platform you will ever need!
• You will be pleased to know it allows you to cut all Sizzix technologies so no other platform is needed.
• With a tab system and clear instructions on the platform it is extremely easy to use.
• You can even cut thicker card using wafer thin dies. Just add a paper or card shim onto the top of your platform to create a little extra pressure and voila!
• It allows you to use other wafer thin dies available in the market although you should always follow the manufacturer’s instructions before doing so....better to be safe than sorry!
• Investing in a pair of extended cutting pads means you can use extra-long border dies.
• These longer pads mean you can use more dies in a single pass than standard pads leaving you more time to make those extra projects you have been thinking about.
• Occasionally with detailed designs multiple passes through the machine may be necessary but well worth that little extra time to make your project just perfect.
