I have been hesitant about purchasing this item, thinking of it as really not necessary. Well, I was totally wrong. I could not do my scrapbooking or cardmaking without it. This is an incredible deal and so easy to use. I recommend that if you have been putting off getting it, you go ahead and do it. You will find it as useful and indispensible as I have. I love it and wouldn't scrap without it.
I just love this machine! I also have the X and both work well together. This machine makes very nice stickers and is simple to use and refill. It seems less messy than the X and you can run a little bit thicker items through than with the X. Changing the refills is an easy breezy job. I can't say enough about the Xyron 250! It's a great sticker maker!
While I wish the width was wider, I do enjoy the simplicity of this product! I have used it for numerous projects and still haven't changed the original cartridge. If you're looking for a sticker maker, this is the product to get!
