We waited in anticipation at the warehouse today from 8am this morning . Finally in the afternoon the machine arrived and we got stuck in to putting it through its paces :
Dies : All thin metal dies up to A4 : Excellent results !
Dies : Sizzix thick dies : Excellent results !
Sizzix strip dies : Excellent results !
Embossing folders : up to A4 : Excellent results : various makes !
Embossing stencils : Plastic or Brass : Excellent results !
Charms and coins on to embossing foil ( up to thickness of a 10p coin :Excellent results !
Wire mesh : Excellent results on to embossing foil and mirror card !
Lace material : Excellent results on to embossing foil !
Dried Seaweed ( Honest ! ) : Excellent results on to foil and mirror card !
Thin plastic stencils embossed on to even thin white paper : Excellent results !
We have also manages to cut Spellbinder dies through up to three sheets of card at once !
This machine is exceeding our expectations in every sense and we are finding we can do a lot of things that our No More Shims mat can do for the other machines.
To do all of the above , all we have used are the two plates with the machine and the embossing mat , there is nothing else required !
We have more tests to conduct tomorrow but so far so good . Try the above in your Grand Callibur if you dare , we know what the results will be !
One other thing , you will know how the grand callibur takes the plates through very slowly with many turns of the handle , this is not the case with our machine , it is much quicker and easier to use .
We are being very honest with you and of course we can demonstrate all of the above to prove we can do these things.
I hope you all like the sound of this !
If you would like to help us by spreading the word through other forums and Blogs that would be much appreciated as we are being thrown off for just talking about the machine . Thank you.
