Video: Ebosser by Craftwell

Traditional die cut and embossing users got a sneak peek of a new machine at the CHA Winter 2011 show in Los Angeles recently. Craftwell, the makers of the eCraft electronic die cut machine, gave retailers a preview of a prototype of their new machine called the eBosser.

This upcoming machine,  which weighs just under 15 lbs, is an electronic embossing and die cut machine that accepts most other manufacturers’ traditional/thin dies and embossing folders. Users just need to select the right “sandwich” combination for their die, similar to other systems.  The eBosser can accept embossing folders up to 8 1/2 x 11 or A 4 size, and it can cut through materials up to 3mm thick – including thin leather. The machine is expected to make a formal debut at the CHA Summer 2011 show in Chicago, and is rumored to retail for under $200.

For a better look at the ebosser check out the video below.
