Craftwell eBosser Review

The Craftwell eBosser Embosser and Die Cutter machine is an electronic motorized craft machine that can die cut and emboss. This means no more hand cranking! It uses a wall outlet and is able to cut and emboss full-sized 8-1/2″ x 11 pieces of paper. So far, it is the only motorized machine that we’ve reviewed with such a wide opening. Let’s get started with this eBosser review!

Machine Features

The Craftwell eBosser electric cutting machine comes with some pretty neat features that other motorized machines on the market don’t have. For example, one complaint about the Sizzix Vagabond machine is that users must be careful not to jam the machine by creating a sandwich that is too thick. Although you still have to be careful with the eBosser machine and it can still get jammed, it does have built in a safeguard to kick plates back out if the sandwich is too thick for the machine. The machine also has a carrying handle, making it easy to carry around.

List of features:

  • Fully automatic
  • Strong motor for embossing and cutting
  • Die cut and emboss full size 8 1/2 x 11″ paper
  • Cut multiple layers of fabric at once
  • Stable base for cutting

Unlike some other machines, when using the eBosser, there is no need to constantly hold the feed button. The machine automatically feeds in the material for you. The machine weighs about 15 pounds and has a wide base, making it very stable when cutting.

The eBosser machine comes with a manual to help you decide what sandwich you need to use. See the eBosser platform chart.

What dies and folders can the eBosser use?

The eBosser can use die and folders from various manufacturers. Here is a list of some below:

  • Craftwell eBosser Embossing Folders
  • Sizzix
  • Spellbinders
  • Cuttlebug
  • AccuCut
  • AccuQuilt
  • Ellison
  • QuicKutz
  • Lifestyle Crafts
  • Fiskars Fuse

What can the eBosser machine cut?

Anything that scissors can cut, the eBosser machine can cut as well, and even more. The machine can even cut several layers of fabric at once. If you are a quilter, this can save you a lot of time.

Here is a list of materials that the eBosser can cut:

  • paper
  • cardstock
  • vinyl
  • plastic
  • balsawood
  • metal
  • leather

Check out the video of the eBosser cutting 8 pieces of fabric at once.

Overall Review

Overall, the Craftwell eBosser is a decent machine. It’s strong, can take dies and folders from different companies, and has built-in safety features to prevent materials from getting stuck in the machine. Even with this safety feature, users must still be careful, as the machine can still get jammed. When it comes to quilting and cutting fabric, the eBosser can save a lot of time.

Another similar machine that is motorized that may be cheaper is the Vagabond machine. The Vagabond cutting machine by Sizzix is also powerful and folds up. Check out the Vagabond Review.

    • Hi Lourina!

      I wasn’t sure either, so I emailed Craftwell Support. This was their response:

      Your question is a bit tricky! The thickness of the material being cut depends largely on the brand of cutting die being used. Do you have a certain brand cutting die in mind to use with your balsawood? For example, there are thin metal dies in which the blade is only an eighth of an inch high…versus steel roll dies in which the blades can be an inch in height.

      We are able to cut through multiple layers of material (acetate, fabric, cardstock, chipboard, etc) depending on the cutting die being used. We are also happy to test the balsawood in our office should you be willing to mail us a sample prior to purchasing the eBosser.

      Sorry I don’t have specific numbers for you, but I hope this helps!
