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:
I make greeting cards and have been honoured to make wedding invitations for two friends. The first time I cut each invitation with a regular paper cutter and, in spite of careful measuring a few were discarded due to inaccurate cutting.
A few years later I received information in the mail about Accucut. I bit the bullet and purchased a Grandemark and have wondered how I managed without my machine! The second set of invitations were a breeze and with the wedding die package I could offer the bride so much more. I have even had a custom die made! I LOVE my GrandeMARK!

I had a Mark IV which was brilliant, but I needed to be able to cut much bigger shapes. Since having the GM (%+ years) I've never looked back. It is my workhorse and I just could not do without it.
Easy to use and with no arm strain (I have an old shoulder injury) and perfect cuts every time.
My GM was second hand and the cogs on the tower had been damaged by the previous owner, but customer services, as always, were helpful, efficient and fast off the mark and quickly dispatched my new tower unit, so now my GM is as good as new.
Personally I think everyone should have one, but they are a substantial size and weight, so do bear this in mind before you make a purchase - they're not that portable!

I treated myself to the GrandeMark when you had your great sale. I have had so much fun with the machine and the different dies-even make a few $ so I could invest in more of the great dies. This has been one of the best investments I have made. Thank you Accucut.

As an event and wedding planning business this machine is a complete dream. I used to be afraid to push the envelope and really put my business out there, because I wasn't sure I could keep up with the demand. I used to hand cut all of my invitations and favors! (crazy I know!) But with this machine I can get things done in a jiffy. Would definitely recommend.

I got the GrandMark Multi- Craft Cutting Machine for Christmas, I've wondered how I have gone for 2 years without it. I LOVE making board books and albums but they are expensive. Once you take the initial plunge and buy the GrandMark (or ask for it as a gift, as I did) you will find the things you can make are endless. In the long run the Grand Mark will save you money. It and the dies are sturdy and dependable. It also draws in scrap-booking friends and customers if you have an in-home scrapping business.

It is a must have for paperkrafting enthusiats!! Any event or celebration is taken up a notch when celebrated with the use of AccuCut dies. I recentl did formal invites for a senior couples Valentine supper. I used my AccuCut scallop slide card and the invites were all the buzz before the event took place. I owe all the compliments to my AccuCut GrandeMARK and how easy peasy it makes simple things elegant.

After using AccuCut machines in schools for years, I finally treated myself to my own GrandeMARK. I'm thrilled! It cuts so smoothly and perfectly, and the selection of dies is wonderful.
You can't beat the warranty, and the customer service people are so friendly and helpful. Be sure to join their Facebook page for great deals and fun sneak peeks! :)

I love the machine and it's ability to cut crisp, clean cuts. I also love the ability to cut the large dies and the thicker chipboard.

MACHINE: I use my GM mostly for scrapbooking, but often I am needing to create shower invites, thank-you's, favor bags & boxes for family, friends and the occasional client. With a great machine like this - you can not go wrong. I love this machine.
SUPPORT: After several years and tons of usage, the handle started (& kept) falling off while I was cutting. I kept attaching it, but it would not stay on properly. I contacted customer support and I received a brand new handle ASAP just-like-that!! Awesome. 5-Stars
