Memory Box Dies
Probably our most successful selling range of dies are from Memory Box. With nearly 500 to select from, including the collection of Poppystamps dies also manufactured by Memory Box.
Memory Box creates the most beautifully detailed dies possible. To render the best image when working these more intricate dies, Memory Box's head designer, Dave Brethauer, offers this very informative video How to Shim Intricate Memory Box Dies or "spot" shim specific areas of the die and also how to use a metal plate adapter.
Memory Box dies are made of very tough thin metal which are specifically manufactured to withstand the pressure when passed through a die cutting machine. Dies are placed with the cutting side against the desired material and sandwiched between plastic plates in a particular order. The order of these plates is specified by the manufacturer and may require additional plates, mats or shims depending on the type of die. Once the sandwich is passed through the machine and taken apart, you are left with a die-cut design.
For your convenience, Handy Hippo provides the sandwich order and any special requirements in the product description of each Memory Box Die.
