Chinese dies

Post by lyndaejane on Sun 30 Oct 2016 - 10:58

Has anyone tried any of these dies from China? From 99p on eBay: wondered about sending for one, just to see.

Not seen anything about them, maybe worth a try.

Think the Chinese have discovered the lucrative die market, so producing them at rock-bottom prices - like everything else!

How about the set of 8 stitched rectangle dies here, Lorraine:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/8pcs-Rectangle-Cutting-Dies-Stencil-Set-DIY-Scrapbooking-Album-Paper-Card-Decor/222272479441?_trksid=p5411.c100167.m2940&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140131123730%26meid%3D48be1b34883a4d42a4c4b0e070b21b50%26pid%3D100167%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D291912895813

If you search on eBay for dies in Crafts and display them in Lowest Price order, you'll see a whole load of auction-style listings for the Chinese dies, starting at 1p! If they're any good, it'll do the die manufacturers some harm.

Watching with interest, not heard anything about them before.
They are probably as good as any of the 'freebies' from craft mags.

I haven't yet sent for one of the chinese dies, but I did buy an embossing folder:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/391594423276?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&var=660714705999&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I paid £1.49 but, as you see, it's now down to £1.29, including postage! Have tried it out and I get really crisp emboss, so am very pleased, especially at that price.

Good to hear you are happy with it Lynda, and not too long getting to you.
