Last year EK Success, who manufacture the 3/4 inch and 1 inch square paper punch, made the decision to discontinue the 3/4 inch paper punch. As you can imagine, I was a bit distressed by this news because Paper Quilters everywhere LOVE the 3/4 inch square paper punch.
After long walks and much thinking under the shower, I began to investigate having a die manufactured which would replace the punch. I know - very drastic. I have received the prototypes for both 3/4 inch and 1 inch and they are AMAZING. The 3/4 inch die will cut out 25 squares at a times and the 1 inch will cut out 16 squares at a time. The squares are exactly 3/4 inch and 1 inch. The dies have also been designed so that you can see the paper squares you will be cutting, making fussy cutting images and words possible. These dies are the thin variety and can be used with any manual die cutting machine.
The other huge bonus with these dies is that posting them to you anywhere in the world will be much cheaper and easier than posting the bulky and heavy paper punches.
I am hoping to offer the dies for sale next month and I am expecting them to retail for about $15 each. This will depend on the exchange rate and shipping from the manufacturer. There will be a special for purchasing both dies together.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to put your name on the "I am interested in the square dies" list so that I can contact you when these exciting new dies become available.
