Description & Information

Tired of turning a crank on your die-cutting machine? Try the Big Shot Express, which lets you push a button for easy motorized cutting and embossing. With a sleek gray and white color scheme, the Big Shot Express Machine is stylish, and it is versatile enough to work with the entire Sizzix die library (except Bigz Plus and Bigz Pro dies). This machine comes with a pair of Standard Cutting Pads, the Extended Platform and the Extended Thin Die Adapter. The diagrams on the Platform and Adapter give easy guidelines for creating the perfect Sizzix sandwich. The machine measures 14 1/4" x 10" x 6 1/4", and comes with a one-year limited warranty. Note: The Big Shot Express Machine is compatible only with the power requirements found in the United States and Canada. Use of any other power source in any other part of the world will void the manufacturer's warranty.

    So far It is great

    I’ve had it just a week and it is a pleasure to use. It was getting harder to crank the old plain big shot. The only thing I would say is I would like more information about it technically; such as the pamphlet warning “not to put 2 decorative dies or 6 sizzzlets in it at once.” That voids its warranty. I emailed Sizzix, but their answer to my question was, “It voids the warranty.” My reply of “Why?” was ignored.

    I’m looking forward to other’s comments.

    AMAZING ! No more cranks for me!

    I've always wanted a machine that I didn't have to crank. As a SU demonstrator, I hold classes in my home each month. We don't sell this machine, but it sure has helped me cut out my class supplies quickly and with minimal effort. I love it! So glad to have it on sale!

Product Questions & Answers

  • I use a crank Sizzix Big Shot machine and find that the clear plates bend relatively quick after using it particularly using dies (and embossing the dies). Sometimes to get the die to cut or emboss properly, it takes an extra sheet or two of paper to get good results.....and this typically leads to the clear plates curling. I don't know if my machine is old or what. I have replaced all the plates and still get the same "not so good" results....and I follow directions on whatever I'm cutting or embossing. So...my question is....will the clear plates also bend using the electric machine? AND will it give good cuts on the dies that are more intricate without having to put extra paper or shims in the sandwich? (because I find that with the machine I have now...it needs extra somethings in with the plates in order to get clean cuts...and my plates curl way to easy.) I am waiting to get comments on this before investing in the electric one. I've seen pros and cons, but I haven't read any questions or comments with the concern I have asked. :) Thanks!   By: Freebird Forever (23-Mar-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • The Express is basically the same machine without the manual crank. Unfortunately the plates (Cutting Pad) tend to bend. The advice is to use them alternately, that is not always use the same side and place to cut out. About the intricate dies there is a very useful purpose plate: Sizzix Accessory - Precision Base Plate for Intricate Thinlits Dies Item #660320 https://www.scrapbook.com/store/sz-660320.html By: Anna Draicchio (25-Mar-17) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • I find it very helpful to switch sides for the cutting pads. Just flip them upside down so the cutting pad is rounded or bowed on top. The pad will eventually straighten out. Do this for both sides, it works wonderful! I was buying cutting pads too often until I read this somewhere online. I have the
      Big Shot Express and this works the same with the Express. I have not had to replace my cutting pads in over 6 months, so I can buy other things!! When that pad starts to bow, just flip it upside done again. Also, for the Express I always use the shim that came with it for intricate die cutting. Instructions included. on how to use exactly.

  • With this sale it says that it is for the machine only. I'm assuming then that the platforms do not come with this deal. Is that correct?   By: gbJoni (28-Sep-16) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!

  • How loud is the motor? Am I going to wake anyone up or interfere with others listening to TV, etc. in open area?   By: Laumityler (22-Mar-16) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • I don't find it loud at all. I would describe it as a whir. I think the only way it might disturb someone is if you were sitting right beside them. The motor only runs while you are actually running the dir through so it runs for maybe 20 seconds. By: Judbud (05-Apr-16) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

  • Is the platform 6inches wide? I have the Big Shot Plus and it is over 8 inches. Any opinions on this machine versus the THoltz Vagabond 2 by Sixxix besides price. The Vagabond 2 is made of all metal gears per the video. I just purchased my Big Shot Plus this summer and I am tired of cranking. Getting too old. This is all new to me. New adventure since I retired recently.   By: smith5019 (08-Nov-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
