Frequently Asked Questions
21  Why has my cutting plate marked off using dies?
It is normal for any die used to cut into your clear plate. Some dies will leave deeper marks than others due to the depth of the cutting edge.
Tip: Some people like to keep a spare cutting plate for embossing so marks do not transfer to your card.
22  When should I use my metal plate?
You will be able to cut most of your dies without the metal plate being used. Some of the more intricate dies may require the metal plate to be added but you may need to remove one of the other shims when doing this.

25  I have a coupon code, but when I enter it at the checkout it says ‘coupon cannot be found’, why is this?
When entering a coupon code, it needs to be entered as one word without any spaces. You should also double check that it is a discount code, if it is for a product special offer, the code needs to be entered into the search box in the top left hand corner of the homepage, and the product needs to be added to your basket. If neither of the options works, please contact the office.
I have filled in all of my details at the checkout, but it keeps bringing me to the same page and I can’t get any further.
