Either the Cutting Plastic or Cut & Crease Mat must be used in conjunction with steel-rule dies to cut paper or other material. The Cutting Plastic works with all dies, while the Cut & Crease Mat helps make better fold lines with your crease-rule dies.

GrandeMARK 2 Machine Tips:
Yes folks, this really IS the granddaddy of all home die cutting machines. Like others reviewers have mentioned, it is absolutely amazing. Once I unboxed this big boy, my biggest surprise was that even though it's the biggest home use die cutter available, it is also the EASIEST non-electric die cutting machine to use!!! Who knew??? Face it folks, we've all been there before with other machines: we have a lovely die that we're dying to try (no pun intended) on some not so easy to cut material. We moan, our muscles groan and a few sweat beads later, the cut is made or NOT. Thankfully, you do NOT have such issues with the GrandeMARK 2 because it cuts through everything like butta.

I am so in love with my GM2. I cut cardboard (recycling boxes) and it cuts through like butter. It stores perfectly on the shelf with my other gadgets. It's brilliant.

I have a KNK electronic cutter for prototypes, but once I finish the design, cutting more than a dozen on that machine makes me want to blow out my brains.... The Grande Mark saved me. This desktop die cutter is simply PERFECT for when you need to cut 20-1000 pieces, and it's so nice to have a purely mechanical tool. Ordering custom dies online is easy and customer service is extremely helpful. They made a very complex die for me and it came out perfectly.

I recently received my GrandeMark 2 Die-Cutting Machine as a Christmas gift to myself. The first thing I noticed was the ease of using this machine. The dies roll smoothly through the machine, the cutting is precise and this machine is much easier to use than the many other machines I have. I can't wait to share my new projects with my crafting friends.

Thank you Accucut for such a well made machine and for shipping it to the UK so well packaged.
I particularly love the super large dies that this machine can cut, I love that i can order my own custom dies, owning this machine along with the die's I purchased is going to open so many doors for my handmade business.
Despite the shipping costs and custom fees i had to pay it was definitely well worth every single penny!

I had never had a machine like this! If you love paper, you'll love this cutter! I've had contact with several folks at AccuCut and I have to say, the customer service is TOP NOTCH!

My home is not the largest and I have lots and lots of supplies...so I'm grateful that this folds in for easy storage and doesn't take a lot of space. I'm beyond pleased with my purchase.

I didn't even know such a machine existed - I found it on the internet by chance and after reading a lot of good comments about it, I decided to give it a try.. wow.. it's a little bit magic isn't it ? thanks to the inventor :-)

This is a must have for anyone that has to have many of the same shape! I volunteer for Days for Girls and have been for about a year and a half. I always hated tracing, then cutting all those shield pieces!!! But now I went through all the cotton and PUL in about an hour! That would have taken me weeks:) This will be a life saver and we will be able to help so many more ladies out there:)
