    • Pros and Cons



      PROS:

      1. You can cut any TrueType font that you have installed on your computer. No extra cartridges to buy for each one.

      2. It cuts 8.5 wide and up to poster length (if you have the mat to handle it)

      3. It cuts clipart files and dingbats that are also free online.

      4. You can literally draw your own designs on the screen and then cut them repeatedly. Great for doing multi cuts needed for online swaps.

      5. There is a huge online resource of Wishblade owners that share thousands of beautiful files with each other for free. Even a Wishblade forum right here at sb.com for sharing files and questions.

      CONS:

      1. It's a bit more difficult to learn than plug-n-play. Requires enough computer literacy that some owners have given up.

      2. It is NOT quiet. It grinds and groans while cutting, so beware the noise.

      3. Since it requires a computer to run, it may not be a good take-to-the-crop sort of tool.

      4. Cutting welded words (like joined cursive scripts) can be done with an extra free program, but requires even MORE computer saavy than is probably worth it for regular Wishblade owners.

    • I wish I hadn't bought this!

      I thought time and practice would make it easier. No it doesn't! I've had this for two months and have spent many, many frustrating wasted hours trying to get it to do as it says....If you can wish it, you can cut it" yeah, right!!

      DON'T select anything to cut that is swirled, or thin, or intricate, or on paper thicker than the cheapest writing paper, cause it won't do it. Yes, I'm using the correct blade.....

      I have wasted not only time, but a huge amount of money on pattern paper. Because when you try to remove the object you've cut, the adhesive-from-hell on the cutting board will tear the object long before it will turn it loose.

      It takes hours of study on various support sites just to figure out the basics. Who has that kind of time?????

      It's complicated, NOT user friendly, unpredicable, unreliable and a complete flop. Shame on Xyron for promoting such a piece of junk!

      Awesome Machine

      The Wishblade is very versitile - it will cut almost anything you want it to. However, because it can do so much there is a learning curve. The good thing is that you can start using it without a lot of prior knowledge. Cutting basic fonts and dingbats is a breeze. You can then begin to master all the other things that you can do.

      I actually have the old machine but I bought the new software when it came out this Spring. The new software actually takes some of the difficulty out of doing some tasks like welded words and tracing clip-art. Before we did have to use two other pieces of software to do this, but the new software will do it for you. In fact, all you have to do to trace a .wmf clip-art is simply drop it in. The new software takes care of the tracing automatically. The new software also controls the machine much better - it cuts a lot faster and the grinding is diminished somewhat, anyway.

      I highly recommend this if you have the money. I have been very, very happy with mine.

      I have to add one more thing to this. Buy your supplies here at scrapbook.com and NOT directly from Xyron. I've done that out of habit for the year and a half that I've had my machine and had nothing but headaches. Scrapbook.com is great about their shipping and tracking so stick with this site! :)

    • Take your time, read the instructions...

      Got my Wishblade earlier this week...LOVE it! I'd done my homework; read the reviews, tips, tutorials, etc...while I was waiting for it to arrive. Read the manual & all other info included before even thinking about installing the software. I was cutting a welded word within the hour.

      Lots of details to remember...resize the image, place it on the page where you want it to cut, change the pressure, change the cap on the blade...but ooooooh it's worth it!

      Try more simple shapes/fonts at first, while you're getting used to the settings. My 1st cut was with a font that wasn't smooth, and I was scraping tiny pieces of paper off the mat for quite a few minutes. Learned my lesson quickly.

      The wishblade saved my life !

      OK maybe it did't save my life, but it did save me time, money and headache. How: This machine is ready right out of the box. The software is included and is fairly easy to understand. This machine will cut out almost all fonts you can download off the internet, and most webdigs too. It saves me money in that I am not a very good cutter. Titles were so diffcult for me. But with the wishblade, it has become a snap. No more cutting and recutting and wasting paper. It's done right the first time. I save so much time because while the wishblade is cutting, I can be working on my page, getting it just right. I seriously dont know what i would do without it!

      This Product is a Must Have Tool!

      This tool is worth the investment! It is something I reach for on almost every single layout. I love the versatility of being able to cut a title out of any font I have on my computer and also love being able to cut it any size too! Since you can cut any font your title can then easily match your journaling. I also love all the designs you can cut as well! This product has saved me money because now I don't feel the need to buy alphas or stickers. I now make my own and don't have to worry about matching to papers or running out of letters! I love my wishblade!

      After you figure it out , its awesome.

      I guess you either LOVE it or Hate it, I personally LOVE MY WISHBLADE, toke me couple hours over 2 days to figure everything I needed to know to get a clean cut, but now I LOVE it. Do not try to get it to cut as thin and small as you would expect a printer to print, if you dont expect it to do what it isn't meant to do, and if you take the time to properly set your page before to cut you should get exactly what you expect.

      A must have machine!

      This is the best purchase I have yet to make. I will never have to purchase another letter. That alone, more than pays for the machine. You can use any true type font you have on your computer. You can also trace and cut shapes from your computer. Create welded words and so much more. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

    • Run in the other direction!

      I had wanted a Wishblade for a long time, did my homework and finallly got one only to be disapointed. I had heard that there was a huge learning curve but felt like I could handle that as I'm quite experienced with computers. I did manage to jump that hurdle but by then the Wishblade had managed to steal my joy for scrapbooking because I so dreaded having to create my title so no, I cannot recommend this product.
