Leading die-cutting brand to present updated line at industry’s biggest event

LAKE FOREST, Calif. (Jan. 8, 2015) – The family of Sizzix® die-cutting machines just grew bigger, expanding creative die-cutting and embossing possibilities for the crafts market. The new line of Sizzix Big Shot™ machines debuts at the Craft and Hobby Association 2015 Mega Show in Anaheim, Calif.

Featuring stylish white and gray colors for the entire line, the newly redesigned Big Shot machines range from $119.99 to $399.99 MSRP. They offer elegance and versatility to create papercrafting, home décor, fabric, jewelry and mixed-media projects with relative ease. With their industry-first steel-rule dies, they cut everything that scissors can—including paper, cardstock, fabric, felt, craft metal, chipboard, leather and more.

Shipping to local craft boutiques and major retail craft chains in February, the original 6" Big Shot continues to be the best-selling Sizzix die-cutting and embossing machine. It includes the Extended Multipurpose Platform and a pair of Standard Cutting Pads.

Bringing back motorized convenience with just a touch of a finger, the Big Shot Express makes die-cutting and embossing projects up to 6" wide easier than ever. Retaining compatibility with most of the Sizzix product library, it ships in summer with a pair of Standard Cutting Pads and a Platform.

The all-new Big Shot Plus boasts a 9" wide opening to perfectly die-cut and emboss various 8 ½" x 11" materials. Using roller technology for an even die-cutting and embossing experience, its larger working area easily accommodates A4 size embossing folders and larger format cards for added creativity. The Big Shot Plus is offered at an MSRP of $199.99 and ships to stores in April.

For the most comprehensive die-cutting and embossing solutions, the Big Shot Pro Machine uses industrial-strength components to easily handle larger projects up to 12" wide. It has complete compatibility with Sizzix products, cuts 12" x 12" materials and will be available in its updated color scheme in March.

“Sizzix prides itself in producing versatile die-cutting machines and our new, exciting Big Shot line delivers just that,” said Susan Spiegel, Ellison’s Vice President, Marketing Communications.
