complicated but cool Review by Yakypakrat

I have the pink version of this machine. My husband is very computer literate; he was formerly a web designer. He loves the machine however does not like the mat that goes with it. He says that the mats wear out quickly. I am already looking for new mats for my machine. I have to say that it would take me some time to learn how to use it to the extent that my husband does.

Congratulations on the purchase of your new Wishblade. I'm Sandy Clemens and I'd like to walk you through the setup process. These are the elements that you receive in the box with your Wishblade. Of course, you have your Wishblade. You have two power cords, a USB cable, your documentation and manuals and your cutting mats, your blades, blade caps and a pen holder.

First of all, we're going to go through plugging in your Wishblade. There is two pieces to your power cord. The round end hooks in right there on your Wishblade. This plugs into here and the plug, of course goes into your power source.

Okay, the next thing that we're going to do is plug it into your computer and we have a standard USB cable. The typical printer end goes into the Wishblade and the USB hooks into the computer like that. Okay. To turn it on we simply press the Blue Button.

Okay, the next thing we're going to do is install the blade. You life the cover and we have the blade and we have three coloured caps yellow, pink and blue. We're typically going to use the blue blade...the blue cap for the blade when we're using very fine papers. Right now we're going to go ahead and take that one off. We have the yellow cap for most medium-weight papers. 90% of the time, you'll typically use this one. The pink cap is for heavy-weight papers, very thick-weights.

Okay. The caps just simply screw on...like that and then we go ahead and we put the blade into the Wishblade. There are two setting for the blade into the unit. On the very top, we have a little dial that protrudes out. The dial needs to be set in the 3:00 or the 6:00 position. Okay, this is the 3:00 and then the 6:00 is forward. We put it in the 3:00 position for heavier-weight papers and average-weight papers. When we want to use the finer-weight papers, it will go in the 6:00 position facing forward. Okay, most of the time we are going in the 3:00 position.

We are going to push the blade in until it goes firmly into place and hang on to this blue knob so that we do not smash the blade down and damage it. Once it's in, we're going to turn the knob and lock it into place. That's the blade, it's ready to go.

It also comes with a pen utility where if you want to slip a pen into it, a typical ball-point pen, it also fits into the unit as well.

Next, I'd like to talk about the cutting mats. This is the cutting mat. It comes with a yellow protective later over it. The centre portion pulls off to reveal a tacky surface. You want to leave the two yellow sides on so that it can go under the rollers and it will not get caught.

So now what we are going to do, we are going to go ahead and put a piece of paper on the cutting mat and line it up to the top and just give it a light rub to hold it into place. We're going to lift this open. We are going to put the clear end under the white rollers and we're going to roll it about 1/4 or 1/2 inch into the Wishblade so that it can roll easily once the software tells it to start printing. Shut the door.

After that, you're ready to go and load your software and start with your Wishblade.

Feel free to call us with any questions you have toll-free at 1-800-944-4573. We carry a full line of Xyron Machines, supplies, and accessories. You can also find us online on Twitter, Facebook, and our blog.

Xyron Wishblade Computerized Die Cutting Machine Review

If you’re really into scrapbooking and other types of crafts, you may want to check out Xyron’s Wishblade. The Wishblade is a computerized die cutting machine that’s an upgrade of Xyron’s previous Personal Cutting System. The Wishblade makes it easy to make cutouts of anything you can dream of and it offers the chance to include your computer in your crafting, bringing the art of scrapbooking into the 21st century. To find out more about this great product, keep reading.

First off, the Xyron Wishblade is designed to be used with a computer via a USB cable. The machine is compatible with both Macs (OS X) and PCs (Windows 2000, XP, and Vista) and comes with two different software programs. These programs allow you to draw objects for cutting, and you can also download any True Type font or clip art and the Wishblade will allow you to cut it out. Also, the included “Create and Cut” software allows you to weld words and create shadows, leading to new and interesting design possibilities. You can also print out your designs on your color printer and use the Wishblade to cut them out, so really, the creative possibilities are endless.

The Wishblade is capable of cutting sheets from to ½” to 8″ wide and up to 39″ long, and it can cut almost any material you can think of including paper, cardstock, vellum, and vinyl. If you want to make stickers, you can use the Wishblade in conjunction with the Xyron 900 Creative Station laminator. (Sold separately.) You won’t need to worry about the Wishblade taking up too much room on your desk or crafting table because it’s the size of a standard desktop printer. The machine is also available in pink, which is a nice touch. Finally, the Wishblade comes with everything you need to get started, including software CDs, a USB cable, cutting mat, and an instructional DVD. The machine also comes with a one-year warranty, just in case something goes wrong.

If there’s a drawback to the Wishblade, it’s the price. When the Wishblade was originally introduced, it retailed for around $600.00. The price has now dropped, but at a current price of $400.00, ownership of this cutter may be out of reach for some, especially in this economy. You may also find it difficult to use the machine, especially if you’re not mechanically inclined. However, the enclosed DVD should be able to help. Also, the fact that a computer is needed to operate the Wishblade may be off-putting to some people. The need for a computer also cuts down on the machine’s portability, so unless you have a laptop, it’ll be impossible to use the Wishblade at a scrapbooking party. However, the computer really expands the abilities of the Wishblade when compared to other machines such as the Xyron personal cutting system. Finally, the Wishblade isn’t the quietest die cutter on the market, so if you’re someone who’s planning on using the machine late at night, you might want to make sure that you close the door to the kids rooms.

Overall, the Wishblade is a great die cutter, despite its handful of shortcomings and its higher price tag. For technically savvy crafters who can afford it, the Wishblade is the way to go. Try it out for yourself and discover a whole new world of possibilities.
