Taylored Dies are made from American steel, manufactured in the U.S., and they work in nearly every die-cutting machine including the Cuttlebug by ProvoCraft, BigShot by Sizzix, Spellbinders Grand Calibur, and Tim Holtz Vagabond.
Many of our dies coordinate with Taylored Expressions stamps allowing you to cut stamped images quickly, easily, and perfectly every time! And the best part… these dies cut more than just paper! When you get your dies, you’ll want to try them with fabric, felt, metal, magnet, polyshrink, canvas, and more.
We're proud to offer these dies and we're certain they'll add great value to your collection of papercrafting tools!
How do I use my Taylored Dies?
We've created a recipe for you to reference the various "sandwiches" for die-cutting with Taylored Dies using three popular die-cutting machines.
Please note: when using detailed dies on the Cuttlebug or Big Shot, we have found that adding the Metal Adapter Plate to your sandwich provides a crisp, clean cut.
Here's a video using the Metal Adapter Plate with a detailed die:

About Taylored Impression Plates
Taylored Impressions are made from American steel, manufactured in the U.S., and they work in nearly every leading die-cutting machine including the Cuttlebug by ProvoCraft and BigShot by Sizzix.
Each of our impression plates features a dual-sided design. The pattern on each side of the plate is raised which will yield an impression (similar to letterpress)
when you send it through your machine. They do not emboss the cardstock with a raised image.
Each plate is generously sized at 4.5" x 5.75" making it the ideal size to cover an entire card front. You'll also want to pick up our Embossing Pad Kit, a set of 2 embossing pads sized for use with our impression plates. Please be aware that because of the dual-design on these impression plates, they can be damaged under too much pressure. Follow the guide below for optimal results.
