SPELLBINDERS PRESTO PUNCH QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Here are some Questions and Answers about the Spellbinders Presto Punch that may be helpful:
Will the Punch templates for Presto Punch work in regular manual die cutting machines such as the Wizard?
The Punch templates are manufactured differently than our standard dies. The cut edges on the
punch templates are different and could cause them to cut (and stick) into the plates of a manual die cut machine, damaging the mats and potentially dulling the cut edge of the punch template. We do not recommend that the Punch Templates be used with any manual die cutting machine.
Can Spellbinders die templates be used in the Presto Punch machine?
The punching mechanism of the Presto Punch machine is designed for using the templates that are a part of the Presto Punch line. However, Spellbinders dies that are under 2 in. in size could work in the Presto Punch Machine. Results will vary and are not guaranteed. The Presto Punch is not designed for use with die cuts only Presto Punch Templates.
Why isn’t the Presto Punch designed for use with Spellbinder Die Templates?
The Presto Punch is a new tool designed as an alternative to traditional punches. Punch Templates are a great value and easier to store versus bulky, traditional punches. Thanks to their unique design, they emboss consistently without tearing paper or can emboss a shape on another punched shape. The Presto Punch machine offers automatic punching at the touch of a button and does not require the force of a traditional punch. It is also capable of accommodating thicker materials the most traditional punches cannot accommodate such as fun foam.
Spellbinders Paper Arts will continue to offer new innovative products in the die cutting category. If you currently use Spellbinders die templates in a manual die cut machine stay tuned as we continue to develop and offer new designs and solutions for die cutting.

shapes. A Punch Booklet and Embossing Booklet are also included. Batteries or a power adapter are sold separately.
