Making Memories Slice Machine Tips!

I get a lot of questions about the Making Memories Slice Machines from customers, so I thought that it may be helpful for you if I put some of the most commonly asked questions and answers in the Blog today. I hope that this will be informative for those who are looking to buy one of these machines and for those who own one, but have questions!

The most frequently asked question comes from our wonderful International customers!  They want to know if they can buy the Slice Machines from the US even though there are machines made specifically for 220v that are available in their own country?

Answer: Making Memories does not recommend that you purchase the machines made for the US as the power sources are different.  Using a US machine made for 110v with a power adapter for 220v will void the warranty! We recommend that you purchase these particular machines in your own country so you will have the benefits of your warranty if something does go wrong!

Question: What is the difference between the Slice and Slice Elite Cordless Digital Design Cutter?

Answer: The Slice Elite has a hardware upgrade which allows the Elite to cut more precise, 40% faster and twice as deep. Cut textured cardstock, vellum, vinyl, acetate, foam sheets, thin metal sheets and photos up to 1mm thick. Cut 1 inch to 4 inch designs in 1/2 inch increments anywhere on any size media. Scroll through hundreds of designs with the push of a button; a large 2 inch window allows a preview of the shapes before cutting.

Question: Can the Slice Design Cards be used with all of the  Slice Design Cutters?

Answer: Yes! All of the Design Cards can be used in any of the Design Cutters, although some of the more intricate paper designs may not cut well with fabric.

Question: Can the Slice Elite cut Fabric or Felt?

Answer: Yes! You will want to use the Slice Fusible Web (sold separately) to hold the shape of the fabric while cutting.

Basically, the Slice Elite and Slice Fabrique Cordless Fabric Cutter are the same machine, but the Fabrique was designed for the Quilting market.

I hope this answers some of your questions about the different Slice Machines!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

    I was wondering if you have instructions or know of a video with instructions on how to use the Slice embossing tip and the drawing tips? i have searched to no avail.

  • Unfortunately, I don’t know of a video which demonstrates how to use the Slice embossing tip and drawing tips. You may want to contact Making Memories directly.

  • Hello,
    I’ m writing you from Greece. You site is amazing and helped me decide that I need the slice fabrique for my quilts. One question: is is available at the moment through your eshop? I ‘ve made a research but I could not find out. Thanks a lot.

  • Wonderful! I’m so glad we could help you!

  • Linda King

    I have a Slice Elite and am having problems cutting expressions or words. Is there an adjustment I should be making so these will cut properly?

  • Oooo….I am sorry that you are having trouble! I am not familiar enough with the Slice to give you accurate instruction, so I would suggest contacting Making Memories directly to find out what you can do.

  • Linda King

    Thanks so much for getting back to me!! I have since been in touch with them and they have given me some suggestions. Have a really great day!

  • Wonderful! I’m glad you were able to get some help! I hope their suggestions enable you to get the most out of your machine!

    Hi i have a question.. today i found on clearance a slice elite for $32.39 and found on clearance also 2 different design cards at $6.47 a piece.. and what i was wondering is it this a good deal, because when i got home i opened the slice elite to find it was missing the 5 replacement blades the adhesive and the quick start guide basic elements SD card? Also consider i called the store tonight and they said there were no more beings it was on clearance, but are willing to give me some kind of discount, but i am not sure on the amount untill i bring it in. Hope you can give my your opinion thanks

  • Yes, this was a super good deal, because we used to sell the Elite over $100.00! We no longer carry those products, however you can contact Making Memories to find out how you can receive replacement blades and such at 800-286-5263.

  • Jessica

    Thank you so much and for getting back to me.

  • Julie

    I tried the number you provided (800-286-5263) and received a message that this number is not in service. I recently purchased a SLICE and on the second use it does not cut the paper. The machine is working, seems like it should be cutting, but when you lift it up there is not even a mark on the paper. Any suggestions?

  • I am sorry that the number did not work! I found another one, which I hope will work for you! 877-797-5423. Unfortunately, I am not personally familiar with using the Slice machine, so I am unable to help you with advise as to what to do and we no longer carry that product. Sorry!

  • I know this is an old posting but I am hoping you may be able to help me. I am having trouble with my slice machine and was hoping you might be able to help. When it is cutting it is also cutting across the letters. I have cleaned the glass mats and have change the blade as well as calibrate the machine. Nothing seems to be helping. I have had the machine for a while and it doesn’t do this all the time. Is there anything that you can suggested.

    Kind regards

  • I am sorry that you are having trouble with your Slice machine! Unfortunately, we no longer carry the Slice machine, and I am personally not very familiar with the use of that machine enough to make recommendations as to fixing that particular problem. You will most likely need to contact Making Memories to troubleshoot. I am very sorry that I could not help further!

  • linda

    Im having troubles with my slice machine, do you have the number of customer service?

  • I am sorry that you are having trouble with your Slice! The only # we have is 800-286-5263. Hopefully that will get you the help you need! If not, try contacting Making Memories through their website.

    I bought my slice elite machine and now I am having troubles with some of the memory cards that I bought, now I realize that there is no customer service, I tried to find the original store I mean the factory and I do not find nothing…. I am not happy with my Slice Elite Cutting Machine….

  • I am very sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your Slice Machine, however, we have not carried Slice products for a couple of years and unfortunately, do not have the capability to troubleshoot the product, nor do we know where to forward you as we have lost touch with the manufacturing company. We are very sorry we are not able to help you with this issue.
