7 Reasons We Love the New Big Shot Express

Makers, we have some exciting news to share!

The newest member in the Sizzix family of machines is here and we just know you’re going to fall in love.

Built on the ideas of convenience and innovation, the newly available Big Shot Express machine keeps all of the things you love about the Big Shot and ups the game with features never before seen in the previous generation.

So why do we love the Big Shot Express so much? We won’t keep you in suspense. Let us count all the ways.

It’s motorized!

First and foremost, the highlighting new feature of the Big Shot Express is its all new motorized ability. It does away with the hand-crank of the last generation and incorporates a button that requires nothing but a simple press to cut and emboss a variety of shapes and designs using any Sizzix die and embossing folder up to 6 inches wide.

It’s helpful for users with limited mobility

The Big Shot Express is ideal for makers with joint pain and other physical limitations that make it difficult to use the crank on the Big Shot machine. Its one-touch technology is forgiving on the hands and makes creating your favorite projects a lot easier. After all, we’re in the business of making crafting easier.

It doesn’t compromise on the results

Look, we know the Big Shot is a great machine on its own. We’ve enjoyed all the wonderful projects we’ve created with it and loved the results. That's why we're so excited that we're able to create all the same kinds of projects with the newest version, including cards, invitations, scrapbook pages, home décor, fashion, altered art, quilting and more. As we said earlier, we’ve kept in all the good from the last generation and added something extra to the mix. As the old song lyric goes: anything the Big Shot can do, the Big Shot Express can do better…or something like that!

Storage and portability is incredibly easy

This electric machine comes with a cord that plugs into a power source, but you don’t have to worry about being tied down. As soon as you’re done using the machine, you can simply detach the cord. This makes it so much easier to move it about or store it away, without having to worry about the hassles typically associated with corded machines.

It’s compatible with our Tool Caddy

Speaking of convenient storage, the Big Shot Express works wonderfully with the Sizzix Tool Caddy (sold separately). The handy snap-on accessory can be easily added and removed from your machine and stores everything from Cutting Pads, to die picks, to die brushes and more. It’s also got a built-in adjustable tape dispenser that holds standard-sized and washi tapes. And it’s all right there attached to your Big Shot Express – like a match made in crafting heaven.

It comes with accessories galore

Who doesn’t love more bang for their buck? When you purchase the Big Shot Express machine, you also get a pair of Standard Cutting Pads, the Extended Platform and Extended Thin Die Adapter. And as always, the Extended Platform and Extended Thin Die adapter offer easy-to-follow diagram guidelines, so you always know how to make the perfect Sizzix sandwich for your project each and every time. For those who are either new to the Sizzix world or those who just want to replace any old accessories from the ones mentioned above, this is the perfect starter kit.

It lacks all the bad stuff

We’ve told you about all the good features the Big Shot Express has. Here’s what it doesn’t have: problems with noise, durability or safety. The quiet motor in the machine allows you to use it to your heart’s content without worrying about any disturbing noises. Additionally its all-metal gears give it added durability and protection against material jams, while its low voltage keeps power consumption low and safety protection high. Win, win, win!

There you have it. Now that you know all that you need to know about the Big Shot Express, here’s that one last bit of information we know you want: you can get your own machine by clicking here.
