  • Sizzix alphabet dies

    Does anyone else have problems with the card/paper sticking in the letter dies after it's gone through the machine?

    I've got 2 letters that I can barely get the card out of and I've only had it a couple of weeks

    It's not even the letters that I use the most and even if it was, I can hardly have been over using it in a couple of weeks.

    Anyone else have this problem?

          I hope I can give you a sensible answer

          I have the round-a-bout alphabet set and although a few do not come away as I lift the die from the machine, I don't really have any problems with letters sticking. Have you tried cutting with tin foil as this will sharpen the blade a little, and is the cutting mat even? It could have more wear in the middle and if particular letters are getting stuck then it could be because of this. Or try a 'shim' (a peice of paper) underneath the die when you are cutting as this will raise it up a little and could help with the cutting problem......

          Does this help a little?!

                No it means the tin foil is now stuck in the letter die as well

                  Eeek! Not sure what else to suggest.

                  What are you actually cutting? Is it paper or card or foam?

                    No worries, at least the blade is a bit sharper now

                    I'm just cutting thin card, same as with the other letters, it's just 2 it seems to stick in.

                    Think I'll email sizzix cos it's driving me nuts.
                    Thanks for the tip about the tin foil anyway, it's good to know

                      Did you manage to get this sorted out? I have heard of the tin foil trick before but didn't know how effective it was.

                      I've just had a new alphabet set delivered that I've not tried yet - I just hope I don't have the same issues

                        No, actually forgot about it, thanks for the reminder Laura.

                        Am going to email Sizzix and see what they say
