I just got one of these for my birthday (I lovvvvvvve it, thank you DH!!!), but I'd like to know if anyone knows should I flip my plates like I had to do with my Big Kick?? The plates don't see to go out of shape at all, but IDK how long that will be the case.

To flip,,,,,,or not to flip???

Do you mean use the other side ? i did read that you can use the other side.
And....spellbinders confirmed that there are new plates..a little bigger, with a new tray (that white thing inside), so if you need to replace them, the new ones will cut an 8 and a half inch wide piece of paper. I'm not to that point yet, but...that will be a future purchase for me.

I have the one that cuts an 8.5 inch piece of paper,,,although it's rare I use a whole one anyway,,,,,,,usually I'm cutting things different colors,,,

but it is nice to be able to put so many dies on one plate and send them through all at the same time!

thanks for the advice I flipped,,,,,,even though they surely don't look out of shape at all,,,,I think they are sturdier than the Big Kick plates,,,,,,although they cost more for replacements so it evens out probably LOL

We have the Grand Calibur and we do flip the plates every so often. It's better to flip, turn and move the plates around. With moving I mean, the dies that you use, so you arent always cutting in the same area. The materials used for the Calibur machine are different than the Big Kick and Cuttlebug. I did noticed that. And also, when something mechanical goes snap, its easy to get it replaced and fixed. Even by yourself.
Me personally like to cut the dies one by one cause I've found out that when you cut several in once, some dont cut all the way thru because the lack of pressure in that area. Just fiddle around with it....

I flip about every other time but I have noticed that it doesn't get out of shape like the big shot.
