Signature Dies FAQ

Signature Dies are Thin Metal Dies and will work with most tabletop die cutting machines, such as the Cuttlebug, Big Shot, Grand Calibur etc.

Please note – these sandwich recipes are a guide only, it is best to refer to your particular machines manual for using Thin Metal Dies with your machine. Always err on the side of Caution – if the sandwich is too hard to go through the machine - then stop and check your sandwich.
