Questions & Answers

  • so I have "acquired" larger than Big shot dies (I ordered them, not realizing...but still "need" them!) so. The Pro vs Pro extended, can you use the larger dies on either? the extended looks much smaller as machine, but is depth correct for the bigger dies? Some are thicker than others, just ordered Tim Holtz houses & not sure if thick or thin die? dies for quilting is ok on either I'm thinking. I also am assuming that extended is just bigger space. ? thanks   By: Xmasdebbie (22-May-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • The pro extended comes with standard platform, but extended plates and tray....i think the houses can fit the standard....whether Bigz die or framelits. Unless you have the xl bigz, then get the Pro extended. By: nathbonita (25-May-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    I own a lot of Tattered Lace dies, some of them are A4 size, to make stepper cards. Will this work or will the Sixxix big shot plus be better. I have issues with my hand and would like to know which of those two machines are easier. I only use card stock. Thanks   By: User (04-Aug-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • I know this question is old, but thought I would respond; Although I’m afraid my help will be limited. I have both machines, and love each one. I tend to use my plus machine for anything that fits through it where I can use my magnetic platform or any steel die that fits. However the Pro machine is easier to turn the handle on. ( Just my opinion) I believe because the machine is much heavier and takes less effort because it’s more stable. If you have the budget for just one machine and room for just one machine, get the Pro. It is a much larger machine and requires a dedicated space to keep it. The Plus machine is just like the regular size, and yet it has a wider area. Some of the envelope dies such as tattered lace work better with the Pro machine. If you think you will ever want the larger size dies, go with the pro. I use that for larger projects and for the dies for boxes and envelopes. I do have stepper dies that do fit into the plus machine, but you cannot angle them. I started with the plus, then bought the pro. I’m keeping both, as the plates are interchangeable and I like the Pro for the larger steel dies. Depends on your budget and space. The pro, again, is much larger and heavier.

  • If I'm not a quilter, should I even bother with buying the big shot pro and just buy another big shot plus? The reason I would buy the big shot plus again is because it's a wonderful machine except my old machine broke a few days ago? I would love to have a speedy reply if possibly since this sale on Sizzix will be ending soon. Thank you in advance for your help and your time. 😊   By: Scrapbkr78 (21-Jun-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • The Pro enables you to use larger dies for boxes and envelopes. You can use Accucut dies that are for everything but the giant size. I have both the Pro and the Plus. I use both daily. The Plus for everyday type of card making. The Pro for envelopes and boxes and and large size backgrounds or flowers. The Pro is not just for quilters, it’s for crafts as well. But if you only plan to make cards, then get the Plus By: Furgie (03-Apr-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • If you don't now and don't plan in the future to use it for anything other than cards, go with the plus. If you want to make larger things (boxes, quilt pieces, or use thicker materials, go for the pro. It all depends on how you will use it. I have a big shot I use for small stuff and the pro for the bigger, thicker items. By: Imacard (22-Jun-17) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported.

  • I want to know what is the difference betwen this machine big shot pro extended and the big shot pro not extended? Can I buy the big shot pro regular, and later get the extended accesories? or not. If I buy any of this machines it will apply the taxes?   By: rocioperez-66 (27-Jul-16) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • I think you are better off to buy the extended version if you intend to use any of the quilting die, especially the XL ones...you can use all the small die on the extended machine but the standard machine cannot accomodate the extended die. New die come out all the time; For the small difference in price of the units you get a lot more capacity for creative growth. By: Sharonchandle (30-Jul-16) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • I just received the Big Shot Pro with extended accessories yesterday. Have not used it yet. Because I want to use this with quilting dies, is the reason I ordered the extended accessories. The machine is also available with standard accessories only. Then you can purchase the extended in the future as per Scrapbook.com website. No tax was charged to my order because of where I live. I did a price comparison and found that to buy the machine with extended accessories was a better buy than to purchase the standard set and order extended accessories. I have been contemplating this purchase for 3 years. I have had the Big Shot for more than 3 years. By: cityquilter2001 (29-Jul-16) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

  • What is the difference in the Big Shot Pro and Big Shot Plus?   By: lriegel (02-Nov-16) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • The Pro is great if you want to make envelopes and boxes and large size craft projects. You can use Accucut dies in this for everything except their giant dies. It is much heavier than the Plus machine and requires a dedicated space to keep it. You do not move or carry it around. You can use any brand die with this machine, including Spellbinders and Sizzix. The main difference is that the Pro is heavy and stays in place, and you can get dies for large envelopes and boxes, etc... The Plus or lighter weight and you can pick it up and move it around. It handles most dies. Just not Accucut dies or larger size projects. Both are great machines, I have both. By: Furgie (03-Apr-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • Big shot pro has a much larger platforn-13.5" compared to 9" for the plus. It handles larger dies and is especially helpful for quilters as it will handle 8 layers of fabric.
