On Scrapbook Update there is an article that says Teresa Collins is partnering with Craftwell. She's going to create designs for the Ebosser and their cutter.
This saddens me, I like her carts. Can she do both?

I got an official announcement in my email this morning from Craftwell....... Here is a cut and paste:

I have been considering purchasing an Ebosser and weighing the pros and cons. I guess this will go on the pro side! Thanks for the information!

I have a couple of friends that have the EBosser. When we got together for a Crop weekend, I brought my AG Cuttlebug and Tim Holtz Vagabond, their EBosser could not compare to the other two, when it came to quality.

Here are my findings:

It was nice that it was motorized but so is the Vagabond and Cuttlebug easy to turn handle.

The EBosser can emboss up to 8 1/2 x 12, Cuttlebug & Vagabond 6 1/4 x 13 using extended pads

The Cuttlebug and Vagabond embossed much deeper then the EBosser. The EBosser sometimes didn't even emboss some of the small detail or very intricate detail.

Fortunately, you can use ALL Embossing Folders on ALL Embossing Machines. You might need to use a shim for some of the Embossing Machines.

I love Teresa Collins and very excited she is coming out with Embossing Folders. which will work just perfect with my AG Cuttlebug and Vagabond.

Calmom, I get very nice, deep embosses with my eBosser. Maybe you weren't shimming it correctly. There are many YouTube videos that show how beautiful the emboss is with the eBosser. But, then again, everyone has their own opinion of our crafting machines. Smile

Thanks for you reviews Calmom and Sherri! I will have to take these into my considerations. I know I would be able to use the folders with my Sizzix, but I am looking for an electric one as my wrists are so bad from carpal tunnel that I have such a hard time with the handle machines I was hoping someone would come out with a better option.

Wow, that's kind of a slap in the face for PC.

Hey! I didn't know anybody made a large format embossing machine. I've been wishing PC would come out with something larger, but it looks like eBosser beat them to it. This will definatley go on my wish list. I just got several A2 cuttlebug folders from JoAnns last week (40% and 50% off). I like their new patterns, but the A2 size is so limiting. I'll probably keep them, but won't be buying anymore now that I know about the eBosser. I'll probably keep my cuttlebug and my bigshot because they're manual, and sometimes it's easier to whip them out and emboss something small than to have to plug something up, especially since I don't have the space to keep things plugged in if I'm not using them. JoAnn sells the eBosser, but only online. Gonna have to wait for Christmas, tho. There aren't that many embossing folders for it, yet. But, hopefully they will come out with more stuff besides the Teresa Collins line. So excited! BigGrin

Hi Jeanne, I should tell you that both EBosser and Vagabond are motorized. However, the Vagabond you have to hold down the button while the Embossing goes on, where the EBosser will work without having to hold any buttons.

I'm not sure it is a big deal, it isn't for me but I wanted to share that info with you. I would watch several of the You Tube Videos for both Machines and read some reviews.

Well anything is possible when it comes to me Laugh LOL I did try to lightly spray water on the cardstock to get a better emboss and it was better. I just didn't want to have to do that each time. I did try about 4 different shims too. I did love that the EBosser will not even attempt to Emboss if it is too thick compared to cracking many plates on my Cuttlebug LOL Laugh LOL

The one nice thing is that no matter who makes the Embossing Folder, they can be used on all of the Embossing Machines. My horrible arthritis in my hands are extremely grateful for the motorized machines. I only wish PC would of come up with a Motorized 12 x12 Embossing Machine.

That's not qiute true. EBosser folders are larger than other folders, so they can only be use in the eBosser machine.
