The letter press plates are relatively easy to use, and make a nice addition to your projects. I'll have to admit, I don't use them that often. I bought the adapter plates and never use them. I purchased the Bigshot Pro cutting plates, adapter plate, and crease pad to turn the system into a 12 inch cutting and embossing system. Lucky for me, I already owned the Lifestyles Magnetic Platform, these additions have turned my Fiskars Fuse into a system that can do anything the Bigshot Pro can do! Like the Bigshot Pro make sure you have a space for it. I own dies from every manufacturer, and this is now my main machine. Turns out it's one of the best purchases I've made!
Just received my machine and was able to make a very pretty letterpress die-cut in less than five minutes. Very easy to use and folds up nicely. I am now going to order my adapter kit and make this my only die-cut machine. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I can see this adding up to lots of money, but hopefully, because it's so incredibly useful, it will be worth it in the end.
