Very easy to use, perfect results every time. I am a little disappointed that the impression is not v deep, perhaps its my die cutting machine. I will have to play some more and try adding an extra shim, maybe that will make a difference.

Multiple fun

I treated myself to this because I like the look of it. It didn’t disappoint. I have played with it all week and really enjoyed it. It is easy to make multiple cards, say for invitations or notecards. Easy to use . The down side is of course that I will have to buy more plates as it won’t work with anything else. I did use different card and ink and they seem to work well. I found it quite difficult to get ink stains off the magnetic plate so you have to be sure it is clean each time you use it.
