Dear Valued Customer,
It has come to our attention that a new product in the marketplace has alleged its compatibility with Sizzix machines.
The packaging of the Lifestyle Crafts™ Genius Ultimate Platform System shows images of the Sizzix® Big Shot™ and Vagabond™ machines for use with the platform system. Also, Lifestyle Crafts’ website shows these same images along with a statement of compatibility. Unfortunately, we cannot substantiate their claim, and Sizzix does not endorse the use of this product with its machines.
Sizzix rigorously tests each of its products for quality and compatibility with its machines. Based on these results, Sizzix recommends only authentic genuine Sizzix platforms and accessories to be used in the appropriate Sizzix machine. And while we DO test and advocate the use of many of our competitors’ dies in some of our machines, we DO NOT test their platforms and accessories with our machines. Use of a non-Sizzix platform or accessory in a Sizzix machine may lead to damage of that non-Sizzix accessory. Also, this type of misuse may cause damage to the Sizzix machine, which is not covered by the Sizzix product warranty. Therefore, we can never endorse such a statement of compatibility.
Please know that for over 35 years Sizzix and Ellison have made it our mission to design, engineer, test and manufacture the highest quality die-cutting and embossing products for use with all of your creative endeavors. We maintain our commitment to help you follow your artistic and inspired passion for generations to come.
