Embossing Folders Comparison for Scrapbooking
Here we are going to do an embossing folders comparison for scrapbooking! “Where Can I Find Embossing Folders? and… What are the Differences? Have you ever asked yourself those questions before? Are you looking for a particular brand? Do you know where to find it in our store? How many different sizes and styles are there?
Well, I am going to do my best to help out with these questions and show you comparisons! I am including two videos; one that will hopefully help you identify the different manufactures that make embossing folders, names, sizes, styles, and even Cut@Home pricing, which will enable you to choose which folders you want. We carry embossing folders from Cuttlebug, Quickutz, Sizzix, Spellbinders, and Tim Holtz!
The second will show you how to navigate our site directly to the different manufacturer’s embossing folders. A brand new feature that was added after taping this video is our Embossing Folder Theme which will take you to view ALL embossing folders in our store, including some Bigz dies that come with a coordinating Textured Impressions embossing folder which were not included in our video.
Before I do that just what to clarify real quick what embossing is:
Embossing is a technique that makes a raised image on cardstock or other materials. By having an embossing tool and dies that have an edge one can simply run the die or also known as an embossing folder through the emboss machine with your desired paper or card.
Hopefully these videos will be informative for you!
Here is the second video on navigating the site to find them. You may also look under THEME if you are into scrapbooking by theme and will find “embossing folders” there as well. Another hint as well is if you see in this image to the right under every folder and product we carry will list the brand, type of die and die name to which you can click on any if you want to see ALL. Very useful!
We have found that the majority of these embossing folders will work in most machines! The sandwich formulas are pretty much the same for Cuttlebug, Quickutz, Textured Impressions, Texture Fades and Texture Fades, so if you have used one of those in your particular machine, you already know how to use the rest.
Spellbinders M-Bossabilities will use a different sandwich formula as they are thicker due to embossing images on both sides of the folder. We have videos showing the M-Bossabilities sandwich formula that you will use with most of the die cutting machines we carry that will be well worth looking at HERE!
I hope this will make shopping for embossing folders a breeze!
Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
