Different types of Sizzix Dies
These matrices differ in size, thickness and, of course, patterns. Bigz, for example, are durable, and very powerful, they can cut fabric, leather, felt, etc. There is also a range called quilting or patchwork specialized in fabric cutting.
Bigz XL dies are particularly long and recommended for repeating patterns and for creating three-dimensional images or friezes.
Framelits, Thinlits and Sizzlits are metal dies, suitable for cutting on paper, so cheaper, but also less resistant to thick materials. Often each shape is combined or superimposed on another to make a composite object.
Each use requires a particular die and a machine setting.
