The Corner Trellis Ink-its Letterpress Plate from Sizzix makes it simple to create beautiful ink-debossed impressions on paper, chipboard, cardstock, mat board or other soft, thick materials. Just ink the plate with an ink pad and put your material on top of the plate. It's perfect for cards, layouts, invitations and more. The Letterpress Plate is 5 7/8" x 8" x 1/8" and is designed for use with the BIGkick, Big Shot and Vagabond only (Cutting Pads and a Platform required). For best results, use 100 lb. (or heavier) watercolor paper with pigment ink layered over clear watermark ink. All items are sold separately. If the impression is not deep enough when using regular cardstock, place a piece of craft foam between the top Cutting Pad and the paper. Debossing shiny, non-porous materials is not recommended because the ink will not dry. Clean Letterpress Plates with water and a paper towel or use a stamp cleaner.
