The Slice Digital Cutter runs independently on a rechargeable battery or can be plugged in. Simply touch a button, insert a design card and select a shape from literally thousands of high-style images (½ inch to 4 inches in size) on the easy-to-read graphic interface. Then you get to preview your selection in the 2-inch window and watch the amazing Slice work its magic! The Slice presents thousands of the designs you crave, and it cuts cleanly through cardstock, vellum, vinyl and photos up to 0.5mm thick. This crafting machine is the perfect fun tool for both small and large projects.
