This embosser is very easy to use. The directions were easy to understand. I was impressed with construction of this embosser, it is nice and sturdy. It doesn't move around on the work bench when using it. I use this with metal blanks and it really does a great job, the patterns come out clean and crisp.
I've been looking to buy one for quite a while,but couldn't afford it .Happen to find the Vindaj version on Overstock for a Great price! I' m pleased with my purchase, it was described perfectly and arrived promptly. I will shop through Overstock.com again.
The BIGkick is awesome. Delivery was great and quick. Everything it said it would be and is in wonderful shape. Price is also very reasonable for what you get. This is great for anyone who loves crafts, with paper, Jewelry or material. It is a must have! I need to apologize for being so late with my review. I was so busy playing and enjoying My BIGkick that I forgot about the review.
Great Machine, with the versatility of using it for Jewelry too, Overstock has the best price and with 2 embossing folders from vintaj free, came just in two days after order it, so, so happy with it, works very good with wafer thing dies if you buy the Solo thin die adapter, I will use it for my new jewelry and for making the gift boxes and tags too.
Great machine! works well with embossing and die cuts. It is a manual crank machine so it does require a little effort (not difficult at all though), but it does not run the risk of motor breakdown or short circuit like the electrical die cutting machine. Arrived on time, undamaged and exactly as pictured. I would definitely recommend.
Just got this machine and couldn't be happier! It works perfectly at embossing jewelry blanks. I also bought an adapter plate for thin dies and it does amazing with my paper craft as well. If you want to try card or jewelry making the big kick is a must have at a price you won't find anywhere. Don't hesitate to buy it!
Great deal with the two bonus dies; a creative person could make some awesome jewelry and sculptural pieces from this machine. My only critique is that I wish the size of the dies were larger, and covered more of the metal foil or blanks, but that's an issue with the manufacturer, not Overstock. Can use with paper, too, to make greeting cards, and for scrapbooking, if's a great tool.
I ordered this from Overstock with a 10% discount and free shipping. It was a great price and also came with two dies. I purchased some additional Deco Etch dies as well. I bought some blanks and a sanding block and was ready when the machine arrivedt. It is just as seen in the photo and the etching and embossing are really beautiful and take just seconds to make. The machine is just like the Big Shot machine. There is just one extra "platform" piece you would need to buy to use with the very thin dies and it costs about $**. I learned a lot about these machines from watching videos and reading reviews! I love the design of the machine and the color as well.
I had been looking for a die cutting machine for. A while but with a tight budget, not even ones at srapbooking events, priced as show specials were as low as I preferred. This deal was excellent. The machine is perfect for my needs. Shipping was slow, but they were up front about it. I love love love my Vintaj and look forward to lots of creative card making. If your on the fence, go for it. The value is definitely there
