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’!
