Experience the art of letterpress with the BetterPress System from Spellbinders. This innovative solution allows you to effortlessly achieve sophisticated letterpress effects using your manual die-cutting machine, including the Spellbinders Platinum and Sizzix Big Shot.

Designs are printed and embossed using metal Press Plates and included in this pack are a beautiful floral design and two versatile sentiments to get started. To use, simply place your chosen press plate onto the magnetic 'Chase' platform and secure your cardstock to the clear 'Platen' top plate using low tack tape. Add ink to your press plate, use the included shims and guide to create your platform sandwich and then run through your die cutting machine to create unique cards, captivating stationery, and mesmerising projects that will leave a lasting impression. You're sure to fall in love with this technique and you'll soon be adding to your press plate collection from the wide range of designs offered by Spellbinders!

Use the press plates with your dye inks for a beautiful, clean transfer or try the BetterPress Ink Pads which are highly pigmented and feature a higher viscosity for optimal image transfers. This letterpress system includes all the essentials you need to get started, featuring all the necessary plates and shims, exclusive floral design press plates, a black BetterPress ink pad, 15 Cotton card panels in neutral shades, working as an ideal base for your designs and even craft tape to secure your card in place during crafting. The only thing you need to add is your creativity!
