These are just the most popular & bear in mind that ALL die cutters differ slightly and you may need to add a shim or 2 to get a good clean cut with other manufacturers dies
Also worth bearing in mind that sizzlits were put on this planet for the sole purpose of getting crafters to pull their hair out in frustration !! they are fabby little dies but can take a bit of 'fiddling' with to get a good cut !

UPDATE Sizzilts & Quickutz revoltion now do a range of border dies for which you need an extended cutting mat/surface

compatibiltiy with other machines remains the same BUT you wil need an extended platform for whatever machine you are using

Sizzix also do an XL die range again needing a specialist cutting mat these dies will ONLY work on the bigshot/big kick

have also added a couple of the new designers in there

Davey Ray are available thru cutting edge crafts & basically have the same specs as a quickutz singlekutz

Tinker & co trade mainly on ebay & are a 4"x4" wafer thein like a revolution die

Louise, what machine , do you prefer?
...the cuttlebug or the Bigshot?????
bigshot


mind you it has got pink bits & gems which was a HUGE selling point !!!

I have a bigkick too & they are pretty much the same specs wise so personally I would go with whichever you can get the best deal on

I recommend the cuttlebug for its versatility & the fact that it folds up if space is a problem cos the bigshot is pretty big - cuttinedge crafts have a couple of nice freebies with theirs at the mo
