Sizzix Has a Winner with the Precision Base Plate… June 13, 2015

I just got the Precision Base Plate that I had pre-ordered.  It is a metal plate that is used in conjunction with your Sizzix die cutting machine – in my case, that would be the Big Shot, but it is also compatible with the Big Kick and Vagabond.  I tried it out with one of my most intricate dies, the Die-Versions High Tea doily die, which I have never been able to cut cleanly using my Cuttlebug, Big Shot, or eBosser.  As a matter of fact, the last time I tried cutting it, I had to run it through the eBosser 5 times before it cut cleanly!


This is a photo of the High Tea die, cut with one pass through the Big Shot, using the Precision Base Plate!  I popped out all the little bits using the Tool n One.  I couldn’t believe it — the entire die cut cleanly through some marbled, fibrous paper in a single pass through the machine!  Another great feature of the PBP is that it will not warp.

I was concerned about whether or not using the plate would eventually dull my dies, so I contacted Sizzix customer service and I got a response the same day, hours after I sent them the inquiry. (Way to go! I love great customer service!)  They advised me that the Precision Base Plate is not going to harm or dull any wafer thin dies that are cut into it.  Love it!!
