I use my Ebosser on almost every project. I love the smaller footprint, yet it's ability to handle larger dies, etc. I don't find it any noisier than my Vagabond. I thought about selling the Vagabond, but found it nice to have both.
I never owned an embosser before I saw Teresa Collins' eBosser, I had seen many demonstrations of other brands. I've watched "big name" designers demonstrate their own versions of embossers struggling to crank their project all the way through. It might not be difficult physically, but it was clear they wanted the machine to go faster. I solved the frustrations I witnessed in others by buying the eBosser. It is electronic - so no cranking at all. The motor pulls the project through, and your embossing and'/or cutting is done in a flash. I don't have to struggle with a wobbly crank handle with my arthritic hands. I can have a thicker project to feed through, and it goes through as easily as one sheet of paper. The folders made by Craftwell are big - almost 12 inches long by 8.5 inches. You can emboss an entire piece of cardstock for layouts and not just small pieces for cards. Teresa makes special embossing folders that emboss a letter size cardstock into a card with different front and back! I'm so glad I picked the eBosser as my choice.
I never was very interested in embossing, but as I got more into making cards it was clear I needed it. After much reasearching, I made the decision on the ebosser. I was nervous as it was pricey, but now that Ive had it for a month, I cannot stop using it! I'm totally in love with the machine!!! Easy to use, it's UNIVERSAL and can use pretty much any folder or die out there. So, glad I didn't do the Big Shot!
