GrandeMARK 2 Machine Tips:
I finally purchased my GrandeMARK after having the Mark IV for 7 yrs. I bought the GM through the trade in (or up if you like) program and wow!!! I love it!
I'm a missionary working on a foreign field and we make ALL of our own crafts for Sunday School, Children's Church, VBS and our women's ministry. We create most of our crafts which saves us tons on money and they always are quality creations because of the machine!!
As the only missionary on the mission field with a die cut machine I make it available to all the other missionaries in the area and they love it as well. I have way over 100 Jumbo dies alone and they get their work out.
If you've been thinking of upgrading, don't wait, it is such an excellent and accurate tool.
Just more thing; the customer service in making the transition from one machine to the other was great. As a matter of fact it has always been exemplary!

Making the decision to purchase a GrandMARK was the perfect solution for me. I have cut paper, chipboard, fabric, felt, thin acrylic sheets and vinyl with ease. I love the precision of each cut and the clean edges.
I also took into consideration the Lifetime Limited Warranty the machine comes with and the ability to purchase replacement parts such as the rollers, trays and cutting mats at very reasonable prices. For me, the GrandMARK was a long term investment, no worries that the company will change the machine and I won't be able to purchase supplies and new dies for it. I am sure this machine and dies will be around long after some of my other craft cutting tools are long gone!
And last but not least, customer service is beyond the best I have ever had any experience with! So easy to reach either by email or phone, and always a return call or email within the same day or immediately usually!
I love my GrandMARK machine!

I teach many types of mixed media and paper arts classes and absolutely love my GrandeMARK! I do own 3 other very well known cutting machines and prefer the GranddeMARK over all the others. Why? One reason is the ease of cutting different thicknesses and lots of pieces at one time. The biggest reason is that it actually replaces all the other roller style cutting machines. Yes! You can actually use all your other dies from different comnpanies in the GrandeMARK machine! The GrandeMARK now has an adapter piece that makes this possible. The item number is 406503- check it out! If your on the fence about purchasing this machine, it's a great investment and you won't regret it!

I've had my GrandeMark for almost 10 years and I love it today as much as the day that I bought it!

Just got my Grande Mark for my birthday in October. After using the Mark IV for over 15 years it took some getting used to but I love it now. It comes with crease pads but I like to use mine with the acrylic cutting pads which helps the machine cut thru medium wt chipboard like butter.
